so..tell us something we don't know...that is why the owner finally closed the business and is just selling the property with a realtor  now.  Lot of possibilities for a group home or even say law offices etc.

Saturday of Easter weekend at local auction house (without spelling it out), the auctioneer could not believe all they had. Filled the warehouse, usually they combine estates for auctions. The innkeepers were just giving it to the new owners, and no one appreciated it.

The new owners could have had $30,000-40,000 in furnishings, and business with excellent website/blog/social media as well as a beautifully maintained and updated 5100 sq ft home.

Those who want to build and furnish from scratch have no idea how much it costs to finish off a B&B.

(Trivia: Gregg Allman played a couple blocks from there last year to a room of 400, his drummer the orig from Allman Brothers Butch Trucks played there this month and died this past week. Just sharing the value found in that little town. A music lover or performer would be in like flynn if they bought that house.  They could meet so many performers and really have alot of fun! And they could use it for whatever they wanted). Yes this is the innkeeper below with "Bud" Thornton.

More about the estate auction Saturday of Easter Weekend April 15, 2017

here is a link (nothing is there yet, but check back end or middle of March) it took a team of 6 adults x 9 hours one day, 10 hours the next, then another team of 4 to do 3 more hours that they couldn't fit in the truck the second load.

They never stopped, I cannot even begin to imagine having to move all of this. In reality if we did we would being paying them (mentioning this for anyone who may be closing their inn, not changing hands in the near future).

Then unload it all at the warehouse (each day) and further inventory it, tag it, photograph it, advertise it, then sell it.  He will stage the bedroom furniture with quilts etc before the date for current auctions with a rope around it for them to "preview" the biggest auction ever.

He expects people far and wide and this to be the best auction yet, from nosey parkers to collectors. He is also adding some guns to draw the men who bring their wives, and jewelry to draw the woman who brings their men. So if you see a boat load of weapons online (just saying in case anyone thinks we hoarded guns and jewelry).

This is by far the best auctioneer, the ladies serve fried chicken and handpies in the back all day and late into the night. They have a team of helpers who yell out each time you make a big, carry it to your car, etc.  (1/4 of what we had we bought from him to begin with!)

People go for the fun of it, we did, and look what happened! He planned it on a holiday weekend when people will be with family and want something to do, he does 100% more $ on holiday sales.  And we also let them take EVERYTHING, mirrors, mats, towels, dresser scarves, vintage medicine bottle collections, bric-a-brac, junk and more junk. He said someone WILL buy a box lot of old router cables (DH). That sort of thing.

   Fall is coming and probably the best time of the year to make a switch to being an innkeeper!  After the rush of summer to get to know the ropes of the business and all.  And when the snow is drifting down, no worries!  Work is just on the other side of the door….  Check out this beauty!

The link above works, but it is no longer listed on innsales (so you can't find it without that link) and there is no longer a finder's fee as a realtor is now listing the inn.

When I shared it on FB, I said MY Finder's fee would go to the buyers. Hoped that would help. Sorry.
