Here's a chance to let you entrepreneurial and culinary skills work together in this well established, destination hospitality business, the Sleeping Bear Bed and Breakfast. Van and Susan Wilson have nurtured this successful operation since 2002 and are ready to pass the reins over to those looking to work and play in the Leelanau Paradise! Five guest rooms, two on the main level, three on the upper level, with five bathrooms (two rooms share a bathroom upstairs), wonderfully appointed kitchen, Viking dual fuel range, Bosch dishwasher, 3 door refrigerator, island kitchen with generous serving and dining area, well appointed guest rooms and bathrooms, each with a "local" theme, wine cellar, new boiler system in 2107, and mini-split A/C units for cooling. The charm of this circa 1890's farm house is complemented with beautiful gardens and outdoor living/kitchen areas, the perfect spaces for guests who may want to relax outside after a day touring the local wineries, enjoying the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, or any number of other fun activities. Offered with most furnishings and equipment but the sellers are reserving some artwork and furniture. The Wilsons are willing to work with new owners to insure a successful transition after closing so the stellar reviews can be maintained with their successors. Established website, customer list, and menu concepts are a part of this offering as well. Charming vintage out buildings provide lots of storage, heated workshop, and "potential" other uses, former ice house doubles as a cute garden/storage shed, newer garage/storage building, owner's summer quarters provides additional storage and maximizes available guest accommodation in the house. Come and live the dream!
