VINTAGE B&B RENO IN RIO, NY – Update on Project Progress

Doug at the logs 2

We remember this picture from our April 2015 blog featuring BLUE RILL HISTORIC PRESERVE.  Here is a little more progress after a second cut this fall:


The images below show the home as it was newly built on or about 1899 and as it is today, where the restoration for this circa 1890s home will begin.  This soon to be revitalized historic landmark will be the quintessential gathering facility, hosting weddings, conferences, corporate seminars and all within the natural and wild setting of Rio, New York, which is nestled in the majestic Upper Delaware River Corridor.  A perfect resort for nature enthusiasts or a country retreat for those seeking a surreal weekend get-away.  This facility will be exceptional, and DBS Portable Sawmill is honored to be a part of the project by providing custom sawn lumber from the trees logged off the land.  Replicas of original trims, wainscot paneling, and many unique furnishing will be created from the lumber DBS will mill.  As this magnificent project develops, Doug, The Sawmill Guy, will continue to collect photos to share.  To learn more about the history of Blue Rill, visit  It is truly a fascinating bit of rural NY history.
