Property Description

EXTRAORDINARY Opportunity… Here is your chance to own a piece of history and the opportunity to restore the classic Blue Jay Inn. This 1880’s Hotel/Inn is perfectly located in the charming town of Buffalo Creek, Colorado! The Blue Jay Inn once served as a vibrant bed & breakfast for ordinary travelers and famous guests. It sits on 2 1/2 acres which includes Buffalo Creek frontage. The Inn greets guests with a lovely wrap-around porch which makes enjoying the mountain fresh air an opportunity year round. Upon entering you will immediately notice the 2-sided fireplace and sitting area, original wood floors, high ceilings, dining room, kitchen and lots of history. The annex has bedrooms and a private entrance to the second floor. The Blue Jay Inn remains the sage green color of years past and has been approved by Jefferson County Historic Registry Guidelines. The foundation of the main building has been updated. The roof is newer on the main building and the annex , approximately 10 years old (except the porch). The opportunity to develop this captivating grand structure awaits the person with a creative desire to breathe life into her. Some of the ideas have been B & B, brew pub, restaurant, fly fishing retreat, mountain cycling retreat with repair shop, event venue… the options are indeed endless. Please note: the STRUCTURE NEEDS: plumbing, electrical, septic, insulation, finish work and a creative dedicated new owner. As part of this sale the new owner will get all of the documentation, permits, plans, etc. (a value of over $80,000) that the present owner has in their possession. This includes a business plan that demonstrates that this is a revenue making opportunity if done correctly. Don’t hesitate - this is a real gem waiting to shine again.
