1884 Wildwood Bed and Breakfast Inn
Hot Springs, AR
Offered for sale at $1,299,000
1884 Wildwood Bed and Breakfast Inn is a breathtaking Victorian mansion nestled on a beautiful wooded one-acre lot located in the Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas. It is currently operating as one of the most historic and award winning Bed & Breakfast Inns in the nation. It has enjoyed a Trip Advisor nationwide 5 star rating during the 20 years that the current owners have operated it.
The property being offered includes, not only the Bed and Breakfast Inn, but three additional properties, two of which are in very close proximity to the Inn. The fourth property is only a block down the street. The owners are open to selling the Inn by itself, but the additional properties won't be available for sale until after the closing of Wildwood, due to the fact that they are historically connected to the main house.
1884 Wildwood is located in the Historic district. Only 1/2 mile from Bathhouse Row, some guests choose to walk to local restaurants, art galleries, and entertainment. The Cedar Glades entrance to the Northwoods biking trails is just a few minutes away. Oaklawn Racetrack is about a 10 minute drive and the Inn is only 15 to 30 minutes away from several area lakes.
Hot Springs is a perfect location to run a B&B because the beauty of the area and each season change brings festivals and activities that draw visitors from all over the world.
In addition to hosting guests, the current owners have generated extra income through tours, baby and bridal showers, teas, luncheons, dinners, and weddings. The ornate woodwork and stained glass is the perfect backdrop for any special occasion, no added decorations are necessary!
The main house has five guest rooms (with a possibility of adding 9 more guest rooms) and is filled with gorgeous period antiques, many of which will be included with the sale. Bedding, linens, towels and dishes are included, making this property turnkey. The vacation rental cottage across the street from the main house has two very comfortable suites, beautifully decorated with private porches and entrances.
The delicious breakfasts menus and recipes used at 1884 Wildwood will be shared with the new owner. Guests return again and again to enjoy the breakfasts and to spend a quiet time soaking in the gorgeous original woodwork and to step back in time. The history of the house is extensive (check out our website for many more details) and the historic tour given most mornings fascinates guests each and every time. Historical photos, letters and other materials will be included with the sale.
1884 Wildwood has an excellent reputation for hospitality. This, and the unique ambiance, bring guests back again and again. You will only have to read the extensive reviews that attest to this. The new owners will immediately benefit from an extensive clientele of repeat guests that come back over and over and choose Wildwood as their own special get-away location.
This is truly a remarkable opportunity to own a fascinating piece of history that you will be incredibly proud of as well as the ability to seamlessly take over a very successful business many years in the making.
Due to this property being an active Bed and Breakfast, showings will be by appointment only to pre-qualified parties.
