We started this business in 2007 with our first house. I grew up in and worked construction my entire life. We built many homes and saw an opportunity to move forward in a new venture that was both fun and exciting. Since then, we've never looked back.
Over the years we worked hard to build our Resort into something that would attract people from the larger cities to the peace and quiet of the lake. Being in between several large metropolis proved to make us a good central point for family events etc. Over the next 13+ years we worked to create the Resort you see advertised here. We feel there's plenty of room for significant growth with the right people at the helm.
We have built the business and created a very sound base. Our customers are tremendously loyal, well behaved and they keep coming back. As near as we can tell , our return rate/referral rate is close to 70%. We do advertise with outside agencies as well as maintaining our own strong web presence which increases occupancy yearly.
We feel the opportunities for growth are unlimited for the right person/people. We have created a sound base but have hesitated to expand the business to its full potential. Perhaps the downfall to having built the homes and living here as owners coupled with the age factor and not wanting the added work. We'll leave that to someone a little younger with a more favorable skill set. :-)
The person that buys the business will be able to hit the ground running. All the parts are in place. The equipment, tools, labor and inventory to run it upon arrival. We are more than happy to work with someone to help get comfortable with the business. The booking platform is easily learned and can be continued in current form or changed to one of your choosing.
One interesting thing about this business is the ability to operate it remotely or work from home locally, with the right setup of personnel. It is a manageable business.
