LeRoy hotel to be re-born

Here's some from an article by Laura Gossman about the re-birth of the Sweets Hotel in LeRoy:

Nzwpbhihk949u4912200884728Walls are being spackled, bathrooms are being tiled and more than a century’s worth of dust is stirring in Sweets Hotel.

By Oct. 1, the hotel built in 1898 will reopen, giving this city of about 920 residents its first operating hotel in decades.

“We looked at the hotel and got so much encouragement from people in the community,” said Rick Lamon, who owns Sweets with his wife Cheryl. “I didn’t know how we could possibly tell them that we weren’t going to do it.”

The Sweets Hotel Restaurant and Lounge, formerly known as Hotel LeRoy Pub and Eatery, on the first floor has already opened.

Lamon grew up in LeRoy and is the former superintendent for the Lanesboro School District.

But he’s got a closer connection to the hotel: The man who built it in 1898, William W. Sweets, is a distant relative.

The Lamon family already has restored an old mill in Lanesboro, turning it into a hotel called Stone Mill Suites. They also own Cheryl’s Apparel next door.
