The Inn at Woodhaven is a beautiful Louisville KY urban inn for sale with 8 guest rooms located in a residential neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky. Four rooms are in the main Gothic Revival house built in 1853. Three rooms are in the Carriage House built at the same time, and one suite is in the Rose Cottage, a modern (1998) structure built with great attention to compatible architecture. The entire property has considerable architectural interest that has been formally recognized and has been updated.

Some of the guest rooms have luxurious baths and/or fireplaces, while others have more modest facilities. This creates a range of offerings and price points to appeal to a broader audience.

Benefiting from Churchill Downs, the Kentucky Derby Museum, and all activities equestrian in nature, the this Louisville KY urban inn for sale has built a solid foundation for its business in the Louisville location. The Bourbon Trail and the Muhammad Ali Center are also big reasons for people to travel to Louisville.

The property is about a block from the Waggener School complex (elementary through high school) and a similar distance to Brown Park and Arthur K. Draut Park, both with woods and walking trails. Commercial services including a full complement of retail shopping are only a half mile away.

The Louisville Bed & Breakfast Association has 16 member inns, most of which are in the historic downtown area. This property is in a newer area of the city, which contributes to its high occupancy rate. While not a “typical” neighborhood for a B&B (like the historic district) with other old mansions and homes around it, the St. Matthews area is a combination of commercial, single and multi-family development. The property is surrounded on three sides by the attractive Cypress Pointe Apartments. Given the relatively modest innkeeper’s quarters in the B&B, the adjacent complex could be a viable, legal alternative. Conversely, a huge third floor suite with 2 bedrooms could also be a contender of onsite owner’s quarters.

The business at the inn is very strong, with annualized occupancy in the high 70’s to 80% that surpasses that of most inns, resulting is a very solid business activity value and ROI. Average Daily Rates run around $175 with a correspondingly strong RevPAR averaging around $140.

This magnificent Louisville KY urban inn for sale offers a new owner a solid business in a lovely, vibrant city that can deliver a comfortable lifestyle. For complete details, contact Peter Scherman, 434-286-4600 or Rick Wolf, 207-967-1995. The Inn at Woodhaven is offered exclusively by The B&B Team, Inn Consultants LLC in cooperation with Steve Porter, Realtors of Louisville.

The town is on the edge of Maine’s North Woods, a place for tourists and residents who love peace, quiet and year round outdoor adventure. The business is currently open May through October, but could be operated year round (and was by the current owners for many years).

Tourists come to Moosehead Lake from America’s major cities in the Northeast and nearby Quebec City (just over a three-hour drive), but also from places like Germany, Switzerland, and Japan. The beauty of the lake is something to behold and experience.

“…despite how hard it is sometimes to believe that places as beautiful as Moosehead Lake exist, from anywhere in Maine, this place is at most just a few hours away.” Sophie Nelson, Maine Home & Design Magazine.

The guest units include balcony and standard rooms at Chalet Moosehead. They are all spacious, light and neutral in color, with windows and/or sliding glass doors in front and back. Those without balconies still have a view, and all can sit on the waterfront in Adirondack chairs for hours and hours! There are grills and an outdoor fireplace for guests to enjoy.

Guests can boat and hook up to a slip or snowmobile right up to the property (and there’s plenty of space to park the sleds and trailers). Or how about being dropped off by seaplane?!  Chalet Moosehead offers paddleboats, canoes and kayaks to guests to enjoy the lake.

The Chalet Moosehead Lakefront Motel for sale is a financially viable property with strong numbers, $260k NOI (13% cap rate). A strong business with the bonus of a separate owner’s house offering privacy for innkeepers, a much appreciated amenity.

The Bradley Inn

March 31st, 2017 by Rick Wolf

“Our Coastal Maine full-service country inn has been providing respite for weary travelers for well over a century. Ideally situated in mid-coast Maine, this New Harbor inn is located at the tip of the Pemaquid peninsula – near two of Maine’s most picturesque harbors and a stones throw from the historic Pemaquid Lighthouse.

While the dove-grey shingles show their familiarity with salt and time and the garden perennials happily run rampant, the beauty, warmth and welcome found within our doors is unsurpassed.

The classic Maine B&B guestrooms are uniquely decorated and very well appointed. Each room is full of character and comfort: original art, antiques and ethereally soft featherbeds.  Our simple, yet elegant Chart Room restaurant boasts some of Maine’s best food (Food and Wine Magazine said that) and an award-winning wine list.  The rustic wood-paneled Chartroom Tavern offers antique half hulls and the local ale – and if you’re lucky a bit of local fishing lore.

In the evening, the Portland granite bar in the Slippery Hitch Pub shines and reflects the sun as it sets over Johns Bay.  However bright the granite glows, it dulls in contrast to the staff that twinkles and charms with their own unique brand of Down East hospitality.”

The B&B Team welcomes Laura, Tony and Ross Moskwa as the new Innkeepers/Stewards of Maine’s iconic Bradley Inn.

Rick Wolf and Eliot Dalton represented the Moskwa’s and welcome them to our Innkeeping community.
