Business Description

Fully Booked through 2019!

Welcome to Taylor Park Trading Post, a well-known, lucrative business located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. The larger property consists of 34 cabin rentals, a full-service restaurant/café, full hook-up RV sites, gas and propane sales, ATV rentals and a gift shop. These components encompass the business revenue and have created a remarkable income stream for any potential family business or investor. The location is Ideal as the trading post is positioned an approximate one-hour drive from the Crested Butte Ski Resort and Gunnison to the west and Buena Vista to the east. With unbelievable recreational activities and scenery in every direction the cabins are currently booked out through the summer of 2019 on the weekends, demonstrating its popularity and strong following. Owned by the same family since 1940, the business has a great reputation of caring for the guests and creating fun experiences for them to enjoy the Colorado outdoors.

Recreational Opportunities: One of many attractions to the area is the 2,040-acre Taylor Park Reservoir. Taylor Park Reservoir, providing good opportunities for catching rainbow, brown, kokanee salmon and lake trout as well as northern pike. The lake trout state record had been held by Taylor Park until 2007. Taylor River offers a fabulous spot to spend your days catching more than your share of big fish and can be directly accessed on the north and south sides of the reservoir. The Taylor River is host to some of the largest stream-born trout in the lower 48 states. Additional nearby fishing opportunities are available in Texas, Illinois, Willow and Cow Creeks, Mirror Lake and Spring Creek Reservoir.

If you’re into motorsports, bring or rent your ATV or jeep and explore the roads less traveled. This is one of the last expansive mountain playgrounds in Colorado and Taylor Park has evolved into the ultimate ATV, snowmobiling and outdoor recreation destination. This was largely the result of an easement recently granted by the US Forest Service allowing riders to access Taylor Park reservoir and areas further to the north directly from the Trading Post. Other recreational attractions and points of interest in the immediate area, and accessible by ATV or snowmobile from the Trading Post include: the historic ghost/mining town of Tin Cup, Union Park, Cumberland Pass (connecting Tin Cup and the town of Pitkin) and an extensive forest service trail system that would take years to fully explore.

If whitewater is more your thing, it’s easy to set up for an exciting day of riding the rapids. For the mountain biking enthusiast, the famous Doctor Park Trail offers one of the best mountain bike descents in the world. Hikers will find that the hiking in Taylor Canyon is second to none. Horseback riding and rock climbing are endless.

This is the unique chance of a lifetime to acquire a truly iconic property. With the in-migration to Colorado expected to continue, the Taylor Park Trading Post should be expected to further gain in popularity. Access to the property will also significantly improve following the completion of paving operations over Cottonwood Pass in the fall of 2018.
