Description: Colorado Bed and Breakfast Inn for sale in the mountains at Pikes Peak near Colorado Springs in the historic Ute Pass of the Rocky Mountains.
For sale are a total of 4 properties:
Property #1: Rocky Mountain Lodge (the Colorado Bed and Breakfast Inn) is a true rustic, yet modern, Colorado Lodge with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, on 1.74 acres with beautiful mountain views. It is located in the mountain community of Cascade, Colorado, just 6 miles from Colorado Springs at Pikes Peak. It's ÂÂÂÂÂÂaway from it all, yet close enough. Rocky Mountain Lodge was built in 1939 as a vacation home for a Kansas oilman and his family, and was turned into a Bed and Breakfast Inn in 1997. In addition to the Lodge being operated as a Bed and Breakfast Inn, it is also frequently rented out in its entirety for family reunions, weddings and retreats. When rented in its entirety no B&B services are provided, it's strictly a rental unit. This provides the innkeepers with a respite and some well needed down time.
Properties #2 & #3: The Cabin and Cottage are located just 1 block from the Bed and Breakfast Lodge and are run as vacation rentals. They are a huge financial asset to the business, and require the least amount of time and work since no meals or housekeeping services are provided. They are the biggest demand by customers and are the biggest return on investment.
Property #4: A newly built 3,400 square foot innkeeper's quarters located adjacent to to the Bed and Breakfast Lodge. The Innkeeper's quarters was built specifically for a B&B innkeeper's quarters. It has 3 stories. On the main floor is a living room, gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, office, and a laundry room that's every innkeeper's dream. Upstairs is 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Downstairs is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with a private entrance. This can be used as additional income by either renting it out to long term renters, or as an additional vacation rental like the Cabin and Cottage are used. It is a great source to bring in additional income if desired. There is also a 3-car garage, and storage to your heart's content. The business has steadily increased in profit and revenue over the years, and is a thriving business year round. It continues to be profitable in spite of the downturn of economy. A business appraisal was done in October 2010 and the listing price is below appraisal.
