Become a Bed and Breakfast Owner
The Florence Rose
Located on the edge of Florence, the antique capital of southern Colorado, the Florence Rose is an established Bed & Breakfast offering excellence in service with the comforts of home. Centrally located to many of south-central Colorado's prime tourist attractions, "The Rose" is a natural for day trips to the renowned Royal Gorge Bride and Scenic Railway, white water rafting and world class fly fishing experiences of the Arkansas River and horseback riding and hiking the many trails winding through the area's scenic Wet Mountains.
Built in 1886, the Florence Rose has been beautifully restored while maintaining the B&B's architectural integrity complete with period antique furnishings and "his" and "hers" parlors that front the entry on either side of the grand hallway. Guests are encouraged to enjoy use of the common areas including the landscaped terrace and hot tub gazebo. Each of the five guest rooms are unique in theme and decor, and can comfortably accommodate as many as 10 overnight guests.
Purchase of the 1 acre property includes garage(carriage house) and historical cabin at $399,900. An additional $74,600 includes antique furnishings and turn key bed & breakfast operation; Total: $474,500.00
An excellent opportunity for very little investment!
Hello B&B Travelers -
I've been thinking about putting a blog up on ibbp.com for awhile. I started ibbp back in 1995 because I love staying at bed and breakfasts and traveling. Hotels are great, but I have found that B&Bs offer visitors a unique view of the location that they are exploring. When traveling to England, I found great pubs and historical sites that were not posted in the travel books. When traveling locally in the US, I have found the great local eateries and activities that may not be posted anywhere else. How about you? I'd love to hear your bed and breakfast experiences and any travel tips for locations that you have visited. Did you stumble upon a castle that many people would not know about? Did you visit a city that we might overlook? Let us know. I'll also post places I've visited and interesting sites that we all may overlook. Happy travels.
