Big Sky Lodge is for Sale

Six bedrooms* and six full baths with two great rooms in a 4000 square feet house, with covered front and back porches and a side deck plus a two-stall stable, paddock, two storage buildings, and a pump house in a mountain meadow just five miles north of Boone.   Most furnishings including all guest room furniture, all linens and fully equipped kitchen and laundry, website, domain name, etc. are included in the sales price.

Almost ten acres with beautiful views and easy access from scenic NC Hwy 194  make this property an excellent investment in this area of exploding land values.  The terrain is hilly but there is enough acreage to build cabins, a second house, or add onto the existing house; plant a vineyard, an orchard ... Christmas trees; raise llamas, pasture goats, a hourse.  The inn would be suitable also as family estate,  a conference center, or,  with the addition of an elevator, a luxurious and charming assisted living facility.  

Big Sky Lodge provides a casual environment amid beautiful surroundings and blissfully comfortable accommodations in a newly renovated (2003) rustic style inn.  Gorgeous pine flooring was installed on the first floor with new Berber carpeting  on the second floor and in bedrooms.  A new kitchen with maple cabinetry and laundry facilities were added.  Custom-built picture windows were installed upstairs to take advantage of the breathtaking 360 degree views.  Adding to the rustic charm are beautifully crafted and fragrant pine paneling on the first floor and a field stone wall with built-in antique fireplace surround in the second floor great room.

There is abundant, delicious well water and an enormous septic system (designed to accommodate as many as 40 guests when the lodge was built in 1992 as a retreat center.)  The inn’s hilltop location affords mountain views  all year round and cool mountain breezes in the summer.

Business revenue has nearly tripled in three years. Still, there is ample opportunity to  increase revenues further through more aggressive marketing, strategic pricing, active PR and by lengthening the season, adding services, etc.   (The B&B has been closed during the winter months and selected weeks in the summer and fall season.)  

Ten minutes from Boone and Appalachian State University, the lodge is within easy driving distance of Blowing Rock, Todd, Grandfather Mountain, the Blue Ridge Parkway, several state parks and other High Country attractions. 

Boone’s popularity as a tourist and retirement destination grows yearly as more people learn about its cool summer, beautiful spring, spectacular autumn, and snowy, but mild and sunny winters.  There are many and increasing recreational opportunities (hiking, fishing, golf, whitewater, horseback riding, boating, rafting, tubing, and winter sports) sightseeing, shopping (antiques, crafts, fine furniture and art, unique boutiques, clothing and manufacturer’s outlets), concerts and theater, museums, and good-to-great local restaurants. 

The 72-year-old owner wants to sell because the increasing number of guests have become more than she can handle comfortably.

Offered at $550,000.
