Inn for sale - turnkey business in year round resort town.
Popular Cashflowing Inn Located in Four Seasons Resort Town.
Hot Springs, AR
This turnkey business in a year round resort town has an established customer base and reputation thereby providing cashflow from day 1 for both experienced and new innkeepers. It is currently the number one ranked business overall on Yelp for Hot Springs and has 2015 certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor.com. This results in it being one of the city's most popular inn's at its price point. The inn offers many different room configurations and sizes thereby appealing to a broad range of travelers from singles to families.
Located on scenic highway 7, one mile from historic downtown Hot Springs, Alpine Inn is convenient for all attractions including the National Park, convention center/Summit Arena, bathhouse row, racetrack/casino and Magic Springs theme park. Location brings drive in guests entering Hot Springs by scenic highway 7 and provides an easy 15 minute walk downtown. Highly rated restaurants are located within walking distance less than half a mile down the street.
The inn is listed on all major online travel sites and the currently used property management software has a booking engine compatible with the GDS (Global Distribution System), all major online travel sites and bed and breakfast.com.
The street also has some historic previous tenants notably Bill Clinton and (allegedly) Al Capone. It has a strong community association combined with a low crime rate and has recently undergone upgrades to improve looks and pedestrian access with more planned for 2016. The local community association works closely with the city on these ventures.
The city is currently reviewing proposals from a consulting group that recommend that a site just half a mile down the street from the inn becomes the hub of the downtown area with a major development planned for this site.
Hot Springs attracts visitors for many activities from spas, weddings, horseracing, crystal mining, hiking, off roading, lake recreation, sports, park activities and conventions. The Hotsprings.org organization is a separate entity formed to bring tourist and business events to the city.
The city has several weekend festivals spread throughout the year and many weekends in the town are sold out throughout the summer season.
While the volume of visitors decreases in the winter months the inn is still profitable. The attraction of the bathhouses and live horse racing are responsible for some of that volume.

Landmark Caribbean Hotel & Restaurant
Rare opportunity to own a true Caribbean Iconic landmark
st thomas, VI
This is your opportunity to own one of the most well-known and respected hotel & restaurants in the United States Virgin Islands, as well as the entire Caribbean. The Mafolie Hotel & Restaurant offers 22 well-appointed guest rooms, 2 large owner condominiums, a 150 person restaurant deck and a scenic pool and pool bar. This property has been featured in 3 TV shows within the last 4 years. In 2014, the reality show “Married at First Sight” filmed at the Mafolie. Because of their love of the place, the featured couple chose to return in 2015 with their spinoff show, "Married at First Sight; The First Year".
With St Thomas being a US territory and the gateway to the Virgin Islands, this property stays full almost year round, with an impressive ADR. The Mafolie also boasts one of the most successful restaurants on island. On a recent trip to St Thomas, Jimmy Buffet boasted that the "Mafolie Hotel (& Restaurant) was a favorite hangout.” Known for its world famous view, it offers a 180 degree panoramic view of Charlotte Amalia Harbour and the Caribbean Sea.
The US Virgin Islands also offers some excellent tax benefits. Benefits and advantages for businesses in the EDC program can be up to:
90% reduction in corporate income tax
90% reduction in personal income tax
Reduction in the customs duty from the standard 6% to 1%
100% exemption on excise tax payments
100% exemption on business property tax

The Mafolie Hotel & Restaurant also currently has solar net metering on all 5 electric meters. A new solar system generates roughly 2/3 of the electric needs, alleviating large electric bills. The solar net metering program in the Virgin Islands has reached is capacity and is no longer available, thereby giving The Mafolie a great competitive advantage over new hotels or hotels without existing system. A large, well maintained generator provides power when needed.
Currently the The Mafolie Hotel & Restaurant is run by a general manager. If you ever dreamed of moving to an island and living the “Caribbean dream” this would be the perfect opportunity! The property is small enough to allow the owners the opportunity to be involved with the guests and the day to day operations. But it generates enough revenue to afford middle management, thus allowing potential owners the leisure to enjoy everything that living in the Caribbean has to offer.
Recent upgrades in the last two years include:
*Solar Panel Installation

Stress Free Country Living, small resort & guided fishing service
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains on the famous White River
We have been amazingly blessed to be able to raise our three children surrounded by such beauty and tranquility. We left the hectic race and crowds behind thirteen years ago when we decided to sell one business and begin a new adventure. It had always been a dream of Chris’s to be a fishing guide and we decided a resort would be the perfect compliment. Twenty-four hours later we were looking at resorts in the Ozark Mountain region. The problem we encountered was that the properties for sale were dated and the owner’s home always seemed to be an afterthought with the worst view and location. Since this was going to be a wonderful lifestyle change as well as a successful business, we decided to put a lot of thought into our home and enjoy the river view we were moving here for. The owner’s residence has great vacation appeal and could easily be rented as an additional property if the owner or investor did not plan to live on site. Carol’s degree is in in Interior Design and though Chris’s degree is in business, he can build anything. This project proved to be a beautiful marriage of talents. We found 8 acres on the White River, a world class trout fishery, and began building our White River Lodge, which is now in its 12th season. The next year we built and opened the Woodcreek and Creekside Cabins, and finally we began building our home.
God has blessed our business and while we have enjoyed living and working here, we sense it is time to move in a new direction that hopefully will have some short term mission opportunities in it. Over the years we have had many repeat guests that came long ago as customers, but left as friends. We look forward to their repeat trips and hearing what has gone on in their lives since their last visit here. Our policy has always been to “read” our guests and to be as involved with them as they desire. Some desire no interaction at all and with our online check-in procedure they have complete privacy. Others want to visit with us, ask us questions, and get to know us. We make ourselves available to those guests and because of that we have met so many interesting people with amazing life stories. We love watching the transition in people. So often they arrive keyed up from the stress of their job and everyday life. By the time they leave they are relaxed and smiling not only with their mouth, but with their eyes. The countryside here is just so peaceful and our hidden little valley is a jewel made even quieter by the fact that we are on a dead end road.
We have always home schooled and this was the perfect place for us to live and work together as a family 24/7. Owning a family business is a wonderful way to be able to work side by side with your children and teach them life lessons. We have never regretted our decision to make this lifestyle choice and are grateful that we did not wait to seize the slower pace and quality of life we have lived here along the river. There are so many things to look forward to living here, I’ll just share a few. When is the last time you saw the Milky Way? I actually had a visiting child tell me in awe that the sky here looked just like the planetarium. In late spring we enjoy a firefly phenomenon that we call the “Christmas Lights”. Waves of ever-changing colorful wildflowers begin in early spring and give way to brilliant fall foliage by mid-October. Our house has so many windows that you will feel like living characters in a snow globe when you are fortunate enough to have snow. Coffee on the front porch, family meals on the screened in back porch, long walks and bike rides, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, sunrises, sunsets, and the list goes on and on. This is a little personal, but one of our favorite things about this life has been snuggling a little longer in the morning and savoring time together over morning coffee. There are not many occupations that allow for such flexibility. Even after twelve years, we are ever mindful of the beauty surrounding us.
