Near the riverbank at the Horseshoe Bend of the James River is a wonderful Scottsville VA bed and breakfast for sale waiting for someone to realize the potential in this lovely and historic home and town.

Chester was built in 1847 with additions in 1880, 1923, and 1930. Today, this elegant Scottsville VA bed and breakfast for sale boasts 7 guest rooms in total, all with private bath. 6 have their own fireplace. 5 guest rooms plus the owner’s quarters are in the main house, and the adjacent cottage can be used as a single guest unit or long term rental with 3 bedrooms, two baths, small kitchen and living room. Alternatively it can be operated with a downstairs guest space with kitchen and sitting room plus a spacious 2nd floor two-room guest suite with its own bath and separate entrance if desired. In short, there are many potential configurations. While the B&B is now formally closed, the property is still being offered with a full complement of furnishings.

Sitting on 6.7 acres, Chester is planted with around 65 varieties of trees and shrubs and is designated as an arboretum. Included in this are a couple of specimens that are the most significant in Virginia. Sweeping lawns, towering shade trees, a small pond, and woods all combine to create a country feeling in this Scottsville VA bed and breakfast for sale.

In operation for over 30 years under two owners, Chester was operated as a lifestyle inn. Business was modest and would not qualify a buyer for financing. However, our asset analysis and 3 year pro-forma projection show that, operated like a real business, Chester could be a successful and profitable enterprise resulting in increased value over time.

Chester is an elegant home and property in a quaint historic town, close to essential amenities, offering the best of small town living with access to a world class city, Charlottesville, just 30 minutes away. Come discover what Thomas Jefferson referred to as “God’s country.” Discover Chester Bed & Breakfast!
