Property Type: Restaurant

Description: Welcome to the Hoffman House! Come in, and enter an aura of hospitality, graciousness, and comfort, from a by-gone era. This stone house, built circa 1679, was once used as a lookout for aggressive action from the local natives, as evidenced by the stairway and hatch to the roof, and is an excellent example of Dutch-Colonial vernacular construction, a rare surviving example from the 17th century, before the English influence brought change to the Dutch methods. The building has remained basically unchanged since its initial construction, and was occupied by the Hoffman family for over two centuries! The last Hoffman family member to occupy the house willed it to the Salvation Army in the late 19th century, who operated their programs from it until the mid-20th century, when they abandoned the building. It sat and deteriorated for 25 years, when its saving grace, the current owners, came to the rescue in 1976. Whenever possible, all original material was salvaged and restored. Original nails re-used, moldings, baseboards, mantels, and door panels carefully reconditioned and restored. This two year process resulted in what is now one of the architectural highlights of Kingston’s Historic Stockade District. The renovations result was not only an architectural highlight, but remains a thriving example of Kingston’s extraordinary hospitality and Food & Beverage scene. For more than 41 years the Hoffman House Restaurant has welcomed both visitors and locals to its warmth, charm, and excellent meals. Enter into the wonderful old style pub bar, and be greeted as if you were family, then ushered into one of the surrounding dining rooms of wide board floors, beamed ceilings, walls of plaster and stone, and seasonally blazing fireplaces. When the weather is accommodating, there is dining on the stone patio, where the charm extends to, as it surrounded on two sides by the stone walls of the house. Gateway to the Historic Stockade District, with fabulous visibility at the corner of North Front & Green Streets. This unsurpassed uptown location is superb for this wonderful buildings current purpose, a successful 41+ year restaurant, currently operating and being offered turn-key, or focus on the buildings location and unique attractiveness to re-purpose its use to raise the profile of your business, be it a law firm, investment house, insurance company- raise the bar and out do your competition!
