Business Description

Z Bar Cabins & Motel - midway between Mt Rushmore and Yellowstone Park

An exceptional property located on the east side of the beautiful Big Horn Mountain range, the Z Bar was established in 1950 and is a collection of 26 total rooms including 22 cabins, six of which are full kitchens, and 4 motel units. Mike and Terri Flanders purchased it in 1999 when it was run-down and in need of major renovations. For the past 18 years, substantial investments of both time and money, and hard work have brought this "diamond-in-the-rough" to the gem it is today. The main house and front desk/lobby area were renovated in 2006 and renovations on the guest cabins began in 2007 and continue today. Of the 26 rooms, 16 have been completely renovated and another 5 have been partially renovated. This is absolutely a turn-key business! Putting the property on the market will in no way affect the current owners pride of ownership.

In addition to the guest cabins and motel units, the new owner will acquire the custom renovated, 3,200 sq. ft., two-story home which could serve multiple purposes; family home, lodging for owners downstairs and seasonal employees upstairs, or family lodging downstairs and upstairs rental bringing in additional revenue.

The entire property sits on 2 acres. Guests take full advantage of the park-like setting of the courtyard. The many tall trees cast shadows across the beautiful lawn and make for a very inviting and relaxed atmosphere. Adding to the laid back tone of the property are the benches that sit at each room, the picnic tables, BBQ grills and playground in the large courtyard.

Buffalo, WY is the half-way point between two of the most beloved national treasures in the country; Mt. Rushmore to the east and Yellowstone Nat'l Park to the west. The Z Bar Cabins & Motel sits right along the very popular "Sweet 16" highway that leads directly into the Big Horn mountains and is the safest - due to the gently grade of the mountain pass as compared to Highway 14 - and arguably the most scenic route to Yellowstone. In addition to that, just 50 miles to the north on Hwy 90 is the historic Little Bighorn Battlefield. Although situated perfectly to be the central stop for making "the loop" of the many historic and scenic wonders in the region, Buffalo, WY is itself a destination for many nature enthusiasts and history buffs. The Bighorns offer hunting, fishing, hiking, biking trails, rock climbing, vast trails for ATVs and endless photo ops due to the sheer beauty of the Bighorn mountain range.

The current owners invite you to look over their website to learn a bit of the history of the Z Bar Cabins And Motel.
