Great opportunity to own your own business, with lots of potential to diversify. This venture sits on 39.8 acres of land and combines Commercial and Agricultural zoning on the busy Cowboy Trail, Highway #22 in the MD of Pincher Creek. Property features a lodge style building (60’x100’), set up as a combined convenience store/gift shop, in addition to living/lodging accommodation and almost 40 acres of native grass. This location would be ideal for a variety of end uses due to its proximity to both a busy highway and the Maycroft Road, gateway to Kananaskis country via the Forestry Trunk Road.
Main floor includes a 2,500sq.ft. lounge/dining area with a locally sourced Douglas Fir bar and 18’ floor to ceiling wood-burning fireplace. The main floor also includes a spacious15'x40' kitchen ideal for group meal preparation and a 1,700 sq.ft. area that accomodated the former convenience store. Upstairs you will find 6 double sleeping quarters, measuring 15'x20', full bathroom, hide-a-bed style sofa plus one suite, large enough to accommodate a group. All bedrooms include hard-wired baseboard heaters. These upper rooms are connected by a galley style interior loft, open to below. A south-facing deck off these rooms allow guests amazing, sunny mountain views. [Please note the guest suite furnishings are to be included in the sale of this property].
The building is heated on 2 zones, in-floor heating via a boiler and natural gas fuel. A 100 gallon hot water heater ensures abundant hot water for all guests and 2x100 amp electrical panels supply the complex with reliable electricity. The present owner has had Health and Building inspections completed for the MD of Pincher Creek.
A detached 20'x30' double garage, with a concrete floor provides secure on-site vehicle storage. Additionally, there is a pull-through carport under the south-facing deck.
An annual contract to supply helicopter fuel to the transmission line maintenance company, compliments potential cash flow for this venture.
