Kentucky Farm Bed and Breakfast for sale

February 2nd, 2018 by Peter Scherman

Maple Hill

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!

January 30th, 2018 by Rick Wolf

Mira Monte

The Mira Monte Inn, a Bar Harbor Maine Bed & Breakfast, is one of the original grand homes built as an elegant summer retreat in 1864. Named Mira Monte in 1890 to describe the beauty of its’ location, ‘Behold the Mountain’. Bar Harbor is located on Mt. Desert Island where early settlers and later ‘giants of industry’ came for the beauty and the climate. People have been coming ever since!

13 guest rooms grace the original home.  In addition,  two separate buildings, the Mira Monte Inn Suites and the recently built Ashe Cottage feature 7 additional guest units.

The 4 Mira Monte Inn Suites include fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, some with kitchenettes and balconies. The suites are large fully equipped units for guests who choose additional space for family and friends.

The Ashe Cottage, in a quiet corner of the almost 2 acres, features 3 units, one suite on the entire ground floor and two large finely appointed rooms on the second floor. Ashe Cottage is heated and cooled by newly installed heat pumps. The ground floor suite has a kitchenette and two bedrooms.

The Main house offers 13 guest rooms on two floors. Private balconies overlooking the extensive formal gardens are featured in many of the rooms. Two of the first-floor rooms are handicap accessible. 6 of the 8 guest rooms on the second floor have private balconies.  The 5 guest rooms on the first-floor have private porch entrances.

The Mira Monte Inn blends the grace and beauty of mid-Victorian times with a modern-day relaxed lodging experience. The first floor in the Main building holds the parlor with original fireplace, the dining room and the library with a piano. Fine original decorative details enhance these first- floor common rooms.

Guests come to Bar Harbor to experience ‘Down East’ Maine and to visit Acadia National Park, which is one of the most magical places on earth. Bar Harbor is a hub of activity starting in spring until the last falling leaf of autumn. The Inn is located on a shady street, a leisurely stroll to the village. Guests can enjoy Bar Harbor’s Shore Path in the morning then explore the 100-hiking trails of Acadia and the 50 historic miles of the carriage roads. The views are spectacular! Then home to the quiet elegance of Mira Monte.

” We are blessed, in and around Bar Harbor, to have a wide array of events that take place indoors and out designed for evening and more casual interests. There are also sightseeing buses and coaches providing tours to almost the entire island.”

The Inn’s gardens feature flowering trees and shrubs and native flowers during the three growing seasons. The lawns, gardens, patios and wrap around porch are lovely features that enhance the property and guest experience. The Main house is closed in the quieter season, November to May, while the suites are rented during this season offering limited service.

Tourism is strong in Bar Harbor. This reflects on the strong Mira Monte Inn numbers, with a 45% annualized occupancy.

The Mira Monte Inn, Bar Harbor Maine Bed & Breakfast, is an excellent opportunity for the buyer with a vision for tomorrow.  Upgrades and enhanced marketing can bring this property, in one of Maine’s most iconic and beautiful destination locations, to new heights!  Are you ready to own this piece of history and make it your own?
