From here you can travel upstream by car on either side of the WIld and Scenic Allegheny River. Adjacent to this property you can hook up with Allegheny Outfitters where you can rent a canoe, get a ride to the dam and get picked up later at a destination of your choice.
This pre-Civil War structure is located on Pennsylvania Avenue at Hemlock Road on Warren's East Side, just about right across the street from United Refining. This building is now a private club, featuring riverside dining year-round. You can't miss it as you enter Warren on the Glade Run Bridge.
The road directly behind the old hotel is Hemlock Road, which leads to a new easy-access, family fishing pier right at the tailwaters of the Kinzua Dam and the National Fish Hatchery.
The hatchery is open for tours until 3 p.m. most days. The fishing pier seems to be always open. If you ever wanted to see a very large dam up close this is the place to do it. Hemlock Road was only recently paved and there are only about one-and-a-half lanes for most of it. It hugs the river closely and a lot of fly fisherman are able to find a nook or cranny to park along it.
Standing close to the building you can just make out the remnants of the hotel's old name arranged in a horizontal row between the windows of the first and second floors. You might have to squint your eyes a little bit to see it.
If you cross the Glade Run Bridge here away from Warren it takes you to the Longhouse National Scenic Byway and Kinzua Dam on a beautiful drive on Route 59. (Turn left at the blinking light onto Route 59).
