WANTED: RESORT with CABINS

Recommended Posts

Guest

I've got a buddy looking to purchase a resort. He's been looking for the past 2 years and has made a couple reasonable offers, but hasn't been able to seal a deal.
I thought I would throw this out to you folks, hoping someone would have info on a resort SOON to be put up for sale.

Here's what he's looking for:

Resort with small lodge (bar & grill), 2-6 cabins, 20-40 seasonal RV sites, must be on fishing lake, Wisconsin or Minnesota.

I believe he's in the UNDER $1,000,000 range. I know he'd like to buy in the next year, but I'm sure he'd wait for the right place.

Can anyone help?

HANGBELLY - I guess it depend on how much under a "mil" he's looking at? If he's as serious as you indicate, within Wisconsin anyway I'm surprised he has not sealed a 'deal'. The trailer parking is the environmental killer for most properties in northern Wisconsin .... resort, cabins, but lots of restrictions on the trailer parking coming up also. He's going to be lQQking at $700 to $800k easy.

Have him send requirements to

I was in the business for years to finance real estate and would simply say he best make **** sure it cash flows. I have seen so many people come from Illinois etc, sell their home, use their savings to buy a resort (often on a contract for deed) and think now they can both earn money and enjoy the north country. Most find they are constantly repairing etc and hardly get to fish.

Then too, they find they are losing their shirt and the contract holder forecloses and poof....there goes all the equity in their home and their savings. Trust me...I have seen it a number of times.

With all the regulations on fewer fish, gas prices high, no snow and whatever you can think of, many resorts cannot make it as they are not always full. Anyway, thats my 2 cents worth....just be very careful!!!

I agree with Steve about the pitfalls. Have known several resorters and resorts.

The best of them provide excellent customer service, with plenty of things for the kids to do, and are located within a fairly short drive of a decent-sized town, in case a little shopping/restaurant/casino is in order.

Unless the resort is on a fantastic fishing lake (the huge majority are not), fishing is a small part of what a resort must offer to be successful.

    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.

      Its under e bay listing 292931561061
    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
