Business Opportunity For Sale in Southwest Colorado

This premier income-producing property is nestled among mixed conifer and Gambles oak trees along the northern shore of Vallecito Reservoir. Originally part of the renowned Wits End Ranch, this family-owned creekside sanctuary offers countless possibilities for a new owner. Sitting on approximately 3.2 acres of land, the property features a Main Lodge and 7 rental units.

Lodge & Resort in Southwest Colorado

The Main Lodge is a beautifully renovated log-sided building of around 6,000 sq ft. It boasts a newly upgraded kitchen, a spacious dining area, and a great room with tongue and groove ceilings and walls, complete with a custom stone fireplace. The lodge comprises 5 bedrooms, each with ensuite baths, newly remodeled with fine decor and furnishings. The cabins consist of 2 duplexes, 2 spacious 2-bedroom/1-bathroom cabins, and 1 large 3-bedroom/2-bathroom cabin. Each unit comes with a fireplace and covered porch. Additional space for 2 to 4 more units is available, with foundations and utilities already in place. There is also land for potential RV site development. The cabins have a successful rental history, with a pro forma gross cap rate of 9% or more, depending on the preferred operations of the new owner. The property features a pond that can be stocked with trout annually, providing added value to guests and an extra income source. Previously, the fishing pond generated $15,000 to $20,000 in additional income when operated through Wits End Ranch. The entire property is serviced by Silver Streams Well #1, a decreed water system that also serves 13 cabins, including the Main Lodge and a formerly successful restaurant.
