James, I lived in Breckenridge for 13 years in the 1980s, and I have to say, the business environment there is very seasonal. I have real esytate friends there whom i visit, and the economy is not great at the moment.Not at all good at any time of the year at the moment. i sold real estate there for 10 years and was relieved to move to Boulder and a real year round business economy. I have a wonderful B&B for sale if you would like information. Purpose-built, turnkey, it is a country style guest inn over 12,000 sq ft, on .63 acre, with 13 large bedrooms wi full baths, wireless work stations, fireplaces and A/C. Central dining room caters also weddings, business meetings, and there is a 50 person confernece room, plus a board room, and a 2 bedrm, 2 full bath townhouse with the Hotel-zoned property, on .63 of an acre. Zoning most probably would allow group home, rehabilitation, spa or many other applications as it is B2 and EC zoning as well as Hotel. The income is good. $1,950,000. Please call or email for photos, more information. 1-303-664-0262. Valerie Carr, Broker.

You might want to consider a franchise. Usually a turn-key operation with much less risk than an existing business or new startup. I provide a no-cost service that assists you in making the best possible choice.

Hi James-
Is there any way you would consider Grand Junction, Colorado? I have an opportunity in that community that would be perfect for a family business. It is a B2B (business to business) so you would have your evenings and weekends free. It really is an amazing opportunity. Give me a call if this is a location you would think about!
