The Limestone Inn – State College, PA

October 11th, 2012 by bbteam


Just 4 miles from the hubbub and excitement of Penn State football, theater, and art activities, The Limestone Inn is an 1800’s era Federal style inn with 5 guest rooms, all with private baths.

The 1-1/4 acre property is located on the western edge of State College…close enough to enjoy the attractions of this quaint downtown but far enough away to offer a countryside home for guests to relax, sit by the creek, and listen to the waterfall wash away the hectic business of the day.

The back porch has been recently enclosed and not only allows the perfect place to relax with that second cup of coffee, but also offers a great meeting space for business meetings and group gatherings.

Business Perspective:  Occupancy level is currently in the mid-20’s with plenty of unrealized marketing opportunities for additional growth.  At this greatly reduced price, this inn is affordable to almost any aspiring innkeeper interested in owning a university town business.

Offered for $475,000, Limestone Inn has been SOLD by Scott Bushnell.

Russell Young Farm B&B

October 11th, 2012 by bbteam


A Vermont Gem in the Heart of the Green Mountains

Seeking a true Vermont country lifestyle with a bed and breakfast  business?  Nestled in a quiet farm setting with spectacular views of the Green Mountains lies the Russell Young Farm Bed and Breakfast. Positioned beautifully on 2 parcels of land, totaling almost 25 acres, the nineteenth century two story farm house has been recently restored to perfection.   Restorations and expansions include a spacious custom built kitchen perfect for cooking classes and demonstrations.  The kitchen is a chef’s dream, with great equipment, lighting, center island counter space and more!

There are three well-appointed guest rooms with private baths. One is fully handicapped accessible on the ground floor and two are on the second floor next to an all season common sun porch room. Here too, thoughtful touches abound from individual thermostats to heated towel rods in the bathrooms.

The Inn features a large sunny Great Room with a welcoming and enormous Vermont stone fireplace. Additionally, there is an enclosed outdoor hot tub spa enjoyed by guests throughout the year.  This is a popular ‘extra amenity’ for the guests after a day on the slopes of both nearby major ski areas.  In the warmer months, another central feature of the property, for owners and guests alike, is the half acre swimming pond with paddleboat!

The ‘behind the scenes’ infrastructure is as good as the front of the house. An up to date heating plant with 14 zones is both practical and economical and is indicative of the care and attention that has gone into the property in recent years.

Views!  The Russell Young Farm is all about the Vermont views. Every room in the Inn as well as the classic farm house front porch has views of the Green Mountain peaks of Mount Ellen, Mount Abe and Camels Hump. The Inn is located in the village of Jerusalem, a quiet hamlet, yet conveniently located next to the town of Bristol and near the vibrant college town of Middlebury. The close proximity to the Sugarbush Ski Area and the Mad River Glen Ski area is another location plus.

Owner’s quarters are located on the second floor with one bedroom, bath and a large living room. There is an expansive Studio spanning the length of the building which could be used to expand the owner’s quarters while providing a potential fourth guest room from the old Owner’s Quarters.

New owners can enjoy the lifestyle of a Vermont Innkeeper with opportunity of growth and possible expansion too. Recently appraised, the Inn was appropriately offered with almost 25 wooded and open field acres and was SOLD in 2012!
