Gould Hotel and Hospitality Concepts Group

The Gould Hotel possesses a vivid history. Construction of the original hotel began in 1919 and the structure would be named The Gould Hotel after its main financier, Gould Manufacturing Company.

In 1920, The Syracuse Journal claimed The Gould Hotel to be "the most complete and perfectly equipped of the smaller hotels of New York State. Four stories in height, absolutely fireproof in construction and equipped in perfect taste and convenience, it is scheduled to become the Mecca for travelers and autoists between Rochester and Syracuse."

Today, The Gould Hotel in Seneca Falls builds upon the building's rich history of social importance in the Finger Lakes Region with a unique and fresh feel. This modern boutique hotel and its exceptional restaurant have again become a vibrant social center and premier destination for guests in the quaint village of Seneca Falls.

The Gould Hotel features revitalized architecture, contemporary cuisine, and all the modern amenities one would expect from a four star hotel.

Whether you seek to celebrate your next event in our elegant banquet room, gather for a stress-free meeting, relax in one of our guestrooms, or simply enjoy fresh and delicious food in our restaurant, The Gould Hotel is your perfect destination. For business or pleasure, the staff at The Gould Hotel is fully prepared to meet all of your needs and expectations. We hope you'll join us for a truly memorable experience.

Regional Access, a better food distributor in Ithaca, NY

Regional Access is committed to creating a sustainable business model focused on our customers, our team of employees, and the development of local economies all over New York State.

Inspiring Regional Food Connection since 1989.

A community-oriented, grassroots company, Regional Access was built on a vision of providing ecologically responsible, locally grown food in Upstate New York. From humble beginnings in founder Gary Redmond’s garage to their current spacious modern warehouse, the company has flourished over the last few decades, helping to redefine regional food systems and pave the way for a myriad array of new businesses and social efforts focused on improving and developing more sustainable food connections.

Fast forward to 2007—following years of double-digit growth and a continued ‘boot-strap’ reinvestment strategy,   Gary’s vision had grown into a truly robust, multi-faceted distribution and logistics company servicing nearly all of NY State and points beyond.  Today, Regional Access is owned and run by Gary’s three children, Asa, Sim and Anna, long time financial manager, Adrienne Stearns and President/GM Dana Stafford.  Working with over 150 regional farms and small scale producers, the impact and scope of Gary’s original mission continues to grow.

Regional Access is pleased to serve a wide array of customers, ranging from independent retailers and restaurants, cooperative markets, grocery stores, wineries, buying clubs, institutions and individuals.  With a consistently growing demand for wholesome, transparently sourced local products, they are adding new customers daily and have an aggressive growth strategy that will enable them to reach even wider audiences throughout the North East for years to come.

Interest, investment and advocacy for local and regional food systems have reached all-time highs. With New York State investing heavily in its agricultural economy, the USDA focusing on food hub formation in concert with groups such as the Wallace Center/Winrock International and RSF Social Finance, there is certain to be dynamic discourse and development in the ways that we procure and interact with our food supply for years to come.

Hosmer Estate Winery, Ovid, NY

After fifteen years of selling their grapes to others, Cameron and Maren had a vision of making and selling their own wine and founded Hosmer Winery in 1985 on the principle that great wine starts in the vineyard.  With a degree in Pomology from Cornell University and a semester at California State University, Fresno (renowned for their world-class programs in viticulture and enology), Cameron had both the background and experience to get started in the budding industry. They opened up their first tasting room in the garage of the Estate home in the summer of 1986.

Hosmer wines include a wide variety of styles made from traditional Vinifera, as well as French-American hybrid varieties.  Today, Hosmer produces 20 thousand gallons of wine annually.  At this boutique level, we are able to assure the excellence of the entire process, from the basic fruit to the finished wine.  Cameron Hosmer works closely with Winemaker, Julia Hoyle to produce consistent quality wines in the European tradition.

Hosmer wines have been recognized consistently over the years at both regional and international competitions, as well as by highly respected publications including the Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Wine & Spirits, USA Today, The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
