THE BROSS HOTEL BED-AND-BREAKFAST INN FOR SALE, PAONIA, COLORADO

Colorado Bed-and-Breakfast Inn, B&B for sale in Western Colorado

A favorite destination inn for Western Colorado tourists, travelers, and vacationers is the historic Bross Hotel in Paonia, Colorado, a 10-room bed-and-breakfast inn. Built in 1906, the Bross has served the Paonia community for well over a century, providing a comfortable and relaxing environment for its guests. Its exterior walls are solid red brick, giving it a sturdy and appealing appearance. Inside, the main floor has an entryway and reception area, a breakfast room capable of serving over 20 people, a commercial kitchen, and office. Downstairs is a TV room and meeting room, two ½ baths, laundry and utility room, and the owner’s accommodations. Upstairs, on two more levels, are 10 spacious guest rooms, each with its own modern bath. The property has an adjacent parking lot dedicated to the building. The hotel’s plumbing, electrical, and heating systems have all been updated.

Excellent bookings in Colorado B&B for sale, income-producing property

The Bross Hotel was acquired in 2017 by Kevin and Karen Kropp, a well-known couple in Paonia. The inn was in need of modernization with its booking, marketing, and management systems. Amazingly enough, just days after signing the contracts on the Bross, Kevin and Karen’s house burned to the ground, with their daughter barely escaping the flames. Now they were committed! While Kevin is a full-time orchardist, growing apples, cherries, peaches, plums, and apricots on several different orchards in the North Fork Valley, he and Karen put their full efforts into improving the Bross’s bookings, systems, facilities, and reputation. Their efforts have been very successful, as they built new manager’s quarters, installed a new modern booking system, marketed the property on a national basis, and doubled the occupancy rate. Despite closing the inn for December, January, and February, the Bross is showing good returns. Karen and Kevin think it’s time to enjoy the rewards of their hard work and start traveling.

Paonia, Colorado—organic farms, orchards, vineyards, hemp farms, mountain views, festivals

Paonia is a happening little town of about 1,000 people located about an hour and 45 minutes southwest of Aspen, an hour from Glenwood Springs, and an hour from Crested Butte in southwest Colorado. The town is known for its excellent climate, beautiful environment, with prominent peaks overlooking the town, lively small-town atmosphere, and productive growing environment. There are many orchards, vineyards, organic farms, ranches, and even hemp farms in the surrounding area. Paonia is famous for its produce, much of which is grown Kevin and his brother, Kris, at their First Fruits Organic Farms. The local “Pickin’ in the Park” music series attracts hundreds of fans every week during the summer. Cherry Days, which takes place on the Fourth of July, is a favorite draw.

Car clubs, motorcyclists, hikers, hunters, adventurers, bicycle riders, travelers, wanderers—the Bross Hotel Clientele

Paonia is uniquely situated at the convergence of several of the most popular driving routes in one of America’s most beautiful states. Highway 133 over McClure Pass is known as the West Elk Scenic Byway, and car clubs and motorcycle enthusiasts come from all over the world to drive that route. To the south, Highway 92 over the Black Mesa hugs the rim of the world-famous Black Canyon, and it is a “must ride” for Moto Guzzi, Harley-Davidson, Ducati, and BMW riders, as well as drivers in Porches, BMW’s, Corvettes, and other sports cars. The Bross Hotel is a natural place for them to stay. In fact, the BMW Club of America stays in Paonia every June and the Bross is completely booked during that time frame. Colorado’s famous “Ride the Rockies” bicycle tour has routed through Paonia on several occasions, with the Bross as a favorite lodging. In the fall, the hotel is at the heart of “color season” as the aspens and Gambel oak turn yellow, orange, and russet colors, and hunting season always brings some travelers, as local elk and mule deer hunting is excellent.

Paonia’s sensibilities—green energy, organic, natural food, low impact, self-sufficiency, CBD hemp

The business environment in Paonia is excellent, with a happening downtown scene. New restaurants, shops, and enterprises are constantly opening, with a vibe geared toward a younger, hipper, eco-friendly crowd. Paonia’s sensibilities are geared towards green energy, natural food, organic, low impact, and self-sufficiency. CBD hemp production is a big endeavor in Paonia. Real estate prices have escalated in Paonia over the past several years, and it’s known as a favorite retreat for Aspen, Telluride, and Vail residents.
