Arrowhead Ranch Business Plan (pdf)

We are a team of positive-minded music lovers, many whose lives have been touched by the legendary Arrowhead Ranch. We feel the time is right for a permanent, year-round, well-appointed destination for like-minded people. We think we have found the perfect place, and have made it our mission to restore this amazing, abandoned treasure to its former glory… and beyond!

Arrowhead Ranch is a gorgeous 70-acre property with a lovely private lake, located just 100 miles from New York City. In the late 80s and early 90s the fields rang out with laughter and music, its 50 hotel rooms were filled, and legendary promoter Bill Graham booked some of the finest musical acts on its stage! A diamond in the rough, it currently sits abandoned, nestled into the edge of the Catskill Mountains in Parksville, New York. When we look at Arrowhead, we see past the decay, to days gone by that we were once a part of. We feel this is something that is needed today…a community, a venue to celebrate and study music and art. With our team’s experience in business and real estate rehabilitation, we are up for rebuilding this legend, and believe it will be well worth the effort! We would like to welcome everyone who feels our passion, to come along for the ride!

When the Arrowhead is reopened, it will be a source of rich culture for Sullivan County, which happens to be currently experiencing a renaissance and resurgence of arts, music and tourism! The market of potential customers includes the thousands of local residents who will benefit from the facilities on site, which will consist of a hotel, stables, restaurant, pub, and recording studio. But mainly, Arrowhead will market itself as a DESTINATION for music fans outside of the local community. We will target the more than eight million New York City residents, as well as those from Long Island, New Jersey, nearby Pennsylvania, and other parts of Upstate New York, Our workshops, events, and facilities will also be an option for the millions of tourists who visit New York State each year.

Our marketing strategy includes maintaining a strong online presence on social media, an easy-to-use and easy-to-book company website that will tell the history of Arrowhead. The company will be reaching out to local municipal and state tourism boards to join their campaigns for promoting the Catskills and southern New York. We will market locally to music fans, such as patrons of Bethel Woods and other music events. We will bring on partners with leverage in the music community to promote musical events and workshops.

Arrowhead is to be purchased and rebuilt using a Small Business Association Loan, and is also seeking investors, business partners, and additional private capital. Arrowhead Ranch will be registered as a limited liability company in the state of New York and will also be the home of a Non-Profit Charity which will be a Horse Rescue and Therapy Center.
