Eureka Springs Motor Court for sale

June 5th, 2018 by Peter Scherman

Sherwood Court is a mid-twentieth century Eureka Springs motor court for sale that includes motel rooms. It is a property that is enjoying a vibrant life in the twenty-first century! There are 7 original cottages and 4 connected motel rooms. A third building, the former (and probably future) owner’s quarters, is currently used as 2 additional guest units, but as owner’s quarters would be 3 bedrooms and two full baths with living/dining room, full kitchen, and laundry.

Two of the cottages in this Eureka Springs motor court for sale have double whirlpool tubs, and one, the log cabin, also has a fireplace. The motel rooms are basic but prime to upgrade to “boutique motel” with some remodeling. The property is in great condition with recent roofs and many mechanicals.

Located on West Van Buren, which is Route 62 coming into Eureka Springs, Sherwood Court enjoys a great location within walking distance to the town’s main Convention Center (Inn of the Ozarks) and the new and still evolving Community Center. It is easy to find and easy to get to the historic and charming downtown with great shops and restaurants. The lot of about an acre offers guests a comfortable place to relax. The back yard is spacious, with a large gazebo, horseshoe pit, and a woods view. There are four fire pits for guest enjoyment, as well as a covered area with grill that guests can use.

Business at Sherwood Court has been quite consistent over the years despite the lack of a strong marketing presence, which presents an excellent opportunity. The rooms at this Eureka Springs motor court for sale are simply but attractively decorated, are comfortable and affordable. Recently, the inn has been open only 9 months a year, being closed December – February. This, too, presents a great opportunity for growth.

Fundamentally, Sherwood Court represents great value today and a first rate location and size to grow significantly with a strong marketing plan.

The property has beautiful landscaping and is ready for the next steward! For details, contact Peter Scherman, 434-286-4600, of The B&B Team, Inn Consultants LLC.

Kentucky Farm Bed and Breakfast for sale

February 2nd, 2018 by Peter Scherman

Maple Hill Manor Inn is an historic, 7 guest room Kentucky farm bed & breakfast for sale comprising 6,888 square feet on 13.6 rolling acres of bucolic farmland just outside Springfield, Kentucky. The very spacious guest rooms with private baths are complemented by public spaces that serve well for a variety of activities. Murder Mystery dinners, weddings, and other special events are popular at Maple Hill Manor!

A distinguishing feature of the Kentucky farm bed and breakfast for sale is the agri-tourism business conducted on the farm. The owners raise alpacas with a few llamas and have a thriving retail store offering alpaca products. The store, which has been moved to an in-town location but could be brought back to the farm, generates a substantial amount of gross revenues. However, while guests enjoy the alpacas, they are not essential to the B&B business. Auxiliary buildings include a wood frame retail store, a frame barn, and storage building.

Maple Hill Manor is centrally located within the Bourbon, History, and Horses Region, with an abundance of year-round attractions and festivals to enjoy. The inn is on 4 Tourism Trails: Bourbon, Wine, Lincoln, and Civil War. In 2018, there is an expansion of the Distillery Trail into Springfield, KY, site of Maple Hill Manor. In addition, some of the high-profile attractions include My Old Kentucky Home State Park, My Old Kentucky Dinner Train, Bernheim Arboretum, Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill, and Kentucky Horse Farm Tours. During the warmer months, there is a wide-range of outdoor dramas and local theaters: Stephen Foster Musical, Pioneer Playhouse, Ragged Edge Community Theater, Norton Center for the Arts, to name just a few of the reasons to visit this fantastic B&B.

Every inn must have dining readily available, and this Kentucky farm bed and breakfast for sale, despite its country setting, is no exception. Fortunately, there is something to offer everyone, ranging from Southern Cuisine, Bourbon specialties, historic dining, train dinner excursions, winery dining, and gourmet fine dining. From quick and essential, causal and entertaining, to the very finest of dining experiences, there are choices for every taste.

In order to be successful, an inn must have a populace to draw from that is within a reasonable driving distance. As the numbers below clearly show, there is more than adequate population to generate successful revenues.

Population within:

50 miles, 1,650,000
100 miles, 3,400,000
150 miles, 10,100,000
200 miles, 17,250,000
250 miles, 24,700,000

All things considered, the location of Maple Hill Manor is ideal for blending the beauty of the countryside with access to amenities and activities and a population to support a viable business. This makes the location of Maple Hill Manor very marketable.

Owner’s quarters at this Kentucky farm bed and breakfast for sale are modest but serviceable. The kitchen is very large, ideal for the gourmet!

For details, please contact Peter Scherman, 434-286-4600, or Rick Wolf, 207-967-1995 of The B&B Team, Inn Consultants LLC.
