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!

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