Lady Amelia Bed & Breakfast Inn & Restaurant
TURN-KEY OPERATION MEANS YOU START EARNING IMMEDIATELY! Unique opportunity to run a working Bed & Breakfast Inn AND successful Fine Dining Restaurant business in the beautiful upstate area of South Carolina, near 11,400-acre Lake Greenwood. This elegant historical house was built in 1894, has gorgeous hardwood floors, character FP mantels, 10-13’ high ceilings, & has been carefully restored w/ updated electrical, plumbing, sheet-rocked walls, 4-5 ready Guest Bedrooms, & spacious, private Owners Quarters. The Restaurant is a character Red Barn directly behind the B&B, where guests enjoy gourmet breakfasts, & the doors open to the public for lunch & dinner, Wed- Sat., supported heartily by local residents. Nicely landscaped property of approx. 3.5 acres is surrounded by privacy trees & contains the main House, Restaurant & 2 support Outbuildings. B&B has 4212 sf. on 2 floors. Guests will enjoy the wrap-around Porch in front, while owners relax or grill on the private Back Porch w/ covered deck & pergola. Two traditional front Parlors- one to serve continental breakfast where guests can wander out to the Porch. The other Parlor, distinctive red w/ its sparkling ceiling, can serve as a guest lounge (seller has display table instead). Traditional 1st & 2nd floor wide welcoming Foyer spaces. Staircase showcases the home’s wonderful craftsmanship & leads to the 2nd Foyer Seating Area w/ warm bead-board ceiling, 2 fully updated Full Baths & 4 welcoming Bedrooms named Miss Daisy (1 Queen + 1 Double), Miss Rose (1 Queen), Miss Violet (1 Queen) & Miss Iris (1 Queen + 1 Day-bed), all beautifully appointed & colored accordingly. There is another Ensuite Bedroom (1 Queen) on the Main Floor w/ a claw tub (& room for a shower if new owners desired to install), used for personal guests, live-in temp help, or as a back-up Guest Rm as needed. Guest Rooms range from $115 to $150 a night. For everyday personal use, the owners claim the entire back of the 1st floor for ample comfortable living quarters. A large pretty Bedroom, offset from the Foyer for privacy, has a gas-heater FP, double closets & lots of space for a sitting area. Owners enjoy a private exit to outside, & a private entry into a bright Kitchen/Family Room. The Kitchen offers space at one end for a sitting area & big screen TV, plus impressive cabinetry storage, ‘farm’ porcelain-topped sink, loads of counter working space, a super-handy worktable-on-wheels, natural gas stove & a window-lit walk-in Pantry Room w/ 3 walls of built-in shelving & freezer. The Back Foyer adjoins the Kitchen, serving nicely as the B&B Office area. Private Quarters also include a Full Bath (shower only), Laundry Room, Utility Rm w/ another porcelain-counter sink, & a large “decoration” Storage Room - a must-have for B&B holiday décor! Love the deck around the home- in great condition & all non-slip w/ nice wide steps in the back. B&B will come fully loaded with all accoutrements needed to run the inn: linens, cook/serving ware, furnishings, décor, but contents are not included in sale price & must be on a separate bill of sale. Inventory list available. Newer French drain system surrounds the home. Newer gas hot water heater w/ instant hot water. Roof - 2000. New HVAC upstairs (2018), and downstairs still working efficiently. All meticulously maintained and ready for easy take-over. The Restaurant: This popular fine dining establishment is unique on the east side of Lake Greenwood, offering French-style cuisine that includes delicious appetizers, salads, a variety of fondues & raclette, selections of pasta, seafood & filet dinners, & nightly specials along w/ a respectable wine & beer selection. The nostalgic Red Barn setting is concrete-floored, w/ rustic beams across the center, inset lighting, His & Hers off-set Restrooms, a wine station alcove, & designed w/ electrical outlets at each of the 9 tables for the fondue & raclette menus. The Restaurant comfortably seats up to 50 guests in large DR, its open plan conducive to both intimate meals or friendly chatter among diners. Professional working Kitchen has all newer equipment & a “Walk-in” Cool Storage/Staging outbuilding just steps away. Charming antiques & gift shop is a separate operation in an adjoining room off the Dining Rm. The entire upstairs is cavernous for fabulous storage or could be remodeled into ample additional quarters. The Restaurant operation is TURN-KEY READY & price includes menus/recipes, tables/chairs, most DR décor (not gift shop items), kitchen equipment/appliances/tools, & “Walk-in” freezer/fridges. Food inventory is independent. Owners built/created the Restaurant & its business from scratch in 2013-14 w/ everything new: electrical, plumbing, central A/C, walls, décor & equipment. It quickly became one of the area’s favorites and earned its 5-star rating on Trip Advisor.
Both outbuildings on either side of the Restaurant have gas & water connections for versatile options. Two septic tanks (one for house, one for Restaurant, which has 2 traps). Separate electric meters; both buildings share gas & water meters. Monitored security system has owner-owned equipment. Sprinkler system in place for landscaping. Attic fan & 6 thermostats to keep comfort & expenses under control.
The property is being sold fully furnished, but sale price does not reflect B&B contents/furnishings, or misc. outbuilding contents, which can stay but must be via separate Bill of Sale. Inventory available. The Gift shop operation, contents & items on display for sale in the DR are independent of the B&B/Restaurant, & may be negotiated separately or the operation possibly continued. Owners say they operate B&B on word-of-mouth without advertising (just a website)- guests & special events easily dot the calendar year-round. New owners could greatly increase income stream if marketed (& desired). The Restaurant business is booming. The overall 2-fold operation provides owners a comfortable living- covering operating & most living expenses. THIS IS A COMPLETE TURN-KEY OPERATION WITH ONLY A VERY FEW PERSONAL ITEMS NOT CONVEYING. Website, goodwill & name included. Owners can assist in training & transition as agreed/needed. They remain committed to the business’s ongoing success, but have the eye looking forward to selling a vibrant business and pursuing travel. BUSINESS IS NOT CLOSING. Residents who live around Lake Greenwood have proven loyalty to keep this unique Restaurant alive and thriving, but the establishment also attracts repeat guests from a multi-county area who come for the Red Barn experience. The Inn is near a variety of recreational venues, including boating, fishing, jet-skiing on Lake Greenwood, numerous golf courses, cultural venues & special events all over the upstate. Nearest city is the micro-metro City of Greenwood, about 20 min. away, known for its festivals, uptown charm, quality healthcare & service amenities. Discover your new life in the beautiful lakelands area of upstate South Carolina, with four distinct seasons, super-mild winters, low taxes & low cost of living. TURN-KEY OPPORTUNITY!
