Levi Deal Mansion Pennsylvania

May 19th, 2016 by Peter Scherman

This inn has been SOLD!

The mountains of the Laurel Highlands in the western end of the Commonwealth, with its outdoor adventures, wineries, theater, railroading history, river rafting excursions, ski slopes (and more!), have been drawing leisure and business travelers out into the country for decades.  This Pennsylvania inn for sale, built in 1900 by the coal and timber baron Levi Deal for his family, is in the village of Meyersdale (maple syrup capital of PA!) and welcomes guests with small town friendliness and warmth.

The Inn has 5 spacious guest rooms, all with private baths, and large owner’s quarters.  The first floor captures the Gilded Age of design and décor, with original stained glass windows, common rooms featuring the architecture and style of various woods, and the turret and bay windows add distinctive architectural interest on all the floors.  The Inn also offers full service dining opportunities on the weekends on occasion…a practice that may (or may not!) be continued with a new owner.

Just a couple of blocks off the Great Alleghany Passage, a popular hiking and biking trail, the inn boasts 4 season hospitality and is ranked by TripAdvisor as  #1 in the region.  You, too, can experience the pleasant lifestyle of small town inn ownership with this Viable business venture!

A historic and pleasant neighborhood setting and with 4 season area attractions that draw guests, this Inn of the Gilded Age is a Must See!

To find out additional information, and to schedule a tour, give Scott a call or email at scott@bbteam.com.

The inn was attractively priced at $570,000 and has been SOLD!

Charlottesville VA Vineyard Inn

March 8th, 2016 by Peter Scherman

When we can say that a four guest room bed and breakfast is a member of Select Registry®, has acreage in a prime location, is expandable, AND is financially viable, we have found a gem to offer you! This Charlottesville VA vineyard inn for sale has it all!

Sitting on 7 rolling acres of land that back up to hundreds of acres owned by Monticello (remember Thomas Jefferson?), this B&B was purpose built with loving care by the owner from the finest materials and outstanding craftsmanship. Starting as a humble brick rancher, the original house is now part of one wing that houses two luxury suites with outside entrances. The center section has an overabundance of common rooms for an inn this size including a living room, library, octagonal greeting room with half bath, sun drenched dining room, a sun room, and a spacious kitchen. A deck off the back overlooks the 450 grape vines, rolling hills, and forests of central Virginia. The right hand wing of the B&B has a tasting room and two stunning, modern guest rooms with whirlpools and private decks. Wow!

As if all that wasn’t enough, the upstairs in the center section houses enviable open concept owner’s quarters with a large bedroom, double soaking tub, office and sitting area, a kitchenette, large bath, and giant walk-in closet.

To top everything off, the walk-out basement area of one wing has been roughed in for a 5th legal guest room/suite with views of the vineyard. Other basement areas include enormous amounts of storage, laundry, and, well, room for just about anything! Power out? No problem! There are two on-demand Generac generators to keep the show rolling.

This Charlottesville VA vineyard inn for sale sits on 7+ acres, and an additional 7 acres below the vineyard could be purchased, allowing for further expansion of the inn (another five guest rooms?) or the vineyard itself. The B&B is set up ideally for tastings, so the option to further develop a winery is very real. On the other hand, if a new owner didn’t want to manage the vineyard, the nearby community college has a program and might love to use it as a “classroom.” The property is located 3 miles from Monticello and just 15 minutes from Charlottesville’s Historic Downtown.

The inn offers personalized wine tours, which is a separate business not included with the B&B. However, the symbiotic nature of the relationship will continue, given that the owners will be building their new home on adjacent land from where they will continue with the tours.

The Charlottesville VA vineyard inn for sale was offered at $895,000 and has been SOLD. For further details about this outstanding bed & breakfast with solid cash flow and real growth opportunity, please contact Peter Scherman (434-286-4600) of The B&B Team, Inc.
