Looking for a lifestyle change? Want to get out of the city? Here's your chance to invest in a unique wilderness resort property in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. This is a turnkey business in a beautiful setting.
There are 15 rental cabins, 2 staff cabins, a laundry / guide cabin, 4 rental "bunkies" (1 bunkbed in each) plus a staff bunkie. There is also a large outdoor covered kitchen area with 2 BBQs and all the pots, pans and utensils needed. Other buildings include a pump house, cleaning / electrical shed, wood shed, tool shed and 2 storage sheds.
The cabins are located on 5.6 acres approx. 20 minutes west of Golden, BC. They were built for a tour company out of Vancouver, BC which regularly brings in bus loads of guests. Act now and you can secure the tour contract for 2020. The buses bring in up to 55 guests at a time. The outdoor kitchen / dining area can hold a full bus and there is enough seating around the fire pit to also hold a full bus.
When the buses aren't here the cabins are rented through airbnb and expedia. We have a lot of repeat guests from Calgary, Edmonton and the interior of BC.
The cabins are clean, comfortable and quiet. They each feature 2 queen beds, a 3 piece washroom, a separate hot water tank for each cabin, and a TV with DVD player. There is wi fi available for guests. The bunkies feature an overlapping bunk bed plus 2 camp chairs and a 5 gallon water tank for drinking and washing up.
Real Property Included
At present the Managers Cabin is used by the owner. It is the same size as the regular cabins however it has one queen bed, a 3 piece washroom and an alcove with a mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, kettle and shelves for a pantry. There is also a dresser and table with additional storage plus a small desk with a printer / scanner. There are additional shelves on the back of the "privacy wall" just inside the door. Someone planning to move here full time would likely want to expand the managers cabin at some point in the future.
The resort is located 20 minutes west of Golden, BC between Glacier and Yoho National Parks. Banff, Kootenay and Jasper National Parks are also within easy driving distance. The cabins are 1.5 km off of the Trans Canada Highway.
The cabins are on 5.6 acres. Half of the land is still forested with the other half cleared for the cabins and bunkies.
The resort is in Columbia Shuswap Regional District A. One of the main reasons for building here is that there were no zoning restrictions.
Our biggest customer is currently a tour company out of Vancouver. It would be quite easy to put in yurts or cabin tents to accommodate another full bus. The payback would just be one summer. It would also be possible to convert the cabins from 2 queen beds to 3 sets of bunk beds. This would allow you to accommodate one full size highway coach plus a mini-coach with up to 35 guests. At present we just deal with one bus at a time however there is a LOT of potential to expand on that.
In the winter we have primarily focused on the tour groups however another potential market are the snow mobilers / sledders and back country skiers.
The cabins were built to accommodate full sized highway coaches based on 4 per cabin. There is NO other such business in this area. There are your everyday hotels and motels in Golden 50m from the highway but nothing that offers such a uniquely Canadian experience in a wilderness setting.
NOTE - the sooner a new owner takes over, the better so that they can secure the 2020 contract from the tour company.
The owner built the cabins for a tour company that he owned out of Vancouver. He sold the tour company in December, 2018 and now wants to sell the cabins so he can retire.
At present we are open year round with check in from 3 pm to 10 pm. However it would be very easy to take the month of November off without any real loss of business.
There isn't a lot of training needed however the owner is willing to stay on for a couple of weeks to train the new owners and would be available by phone, text or email if the new owners have any questions.
