The Fox and Owl Inn

Port Jefferson, NY   Offered for sale at $749,000

MAJOR PRICE DROP! This 1850 Victorian house offers three charming guest rooms and a large common area with kitchenette, dining table, lounge area, and small library. Guests have been delighted by The Fox and Owl for over four years now, coming to Port Jefferson for any number of reasons: weddings; the university 10 minutes away; the north shore wine trail; the revolutionary war history; the beaches; restaurants and window shopping. Easy to access by public transit from the city and points north (ferry), and letting guests walk into town to avoid busy, paid parking in the summer, this inn is one of three such accommodations in the area and as such, is in high demand.

The home has been meticulously restored by an architect and a daughter of antique dealers: every detail has been carefully executed, and guests notice. With solar panels and a brand new on-demand burner/hot water heater among other major improvements, this old house is highly efficient. The house is connected to city sewer (no cesspool) and natural gas (kitchen stove and burner for heat and hot water). There are 4 irrigation zones on the grounds, and the house is wired with an ADT fire/security alarm system.

A back patio area boasts a fire pit and Jacuzzi hot tub for guests (and owners) to enjoy, along with a BBQ, seating, and gardens.

The owner's quarters are large and entirely private. As the house is built into a hill, the second floor has its own entrance onto the second story porch, and the stairwell is closed between the two floors. Owners enjoy a private ~1100 sqft including a large eat-in kitchen, bathroom, living room, dining room, and big bedroom.

All rooms have large old windows for beautiful natural light, and many panes are still the old wavy glass. There is a large attic and unfinished basement, as well as a two-car garage.

Inn is being sold with the the contents of the guest rooms and all supplies: new owners can step into smoothly operating B&B and begin their new adventure as current owners move on to their next chapter. Good will includes LLC (The Fox and Owl Inn, LLC), pre-paid permits, email list, social media accounts, maintenance necessities, and more.

The inn has been run impeccably well in its four years, as evident by rave reviews on Airbnb, Trip Advisor, Google, Yelp, and Facebook, but innkeepers want to spend more time on their principle careers. Current innkeepers are devoted to their project and will continue running The Fox and Owl Inn to its highest standard until the handover.

Incoming innkeepers can very easily increase revenue and occupancy by serving full hot breakfast and further strategizing marketing efforts.

Price listed includes real property AND business.
