Beaver Springs Lodge….expanding possibilities

See blog post from September 2014 about this possibility

Late spring 2015 update:

To my surprise, Robert has not yet sold this property.  I continue to look for partners to buy it and/or run it. When we visited him in early June, he was remodeling the small mobile home he had purchased to complete his ADU permit.  Water, power, and septic were already in.  Certainly I would expect anyone who bought the property to build a new house there, but he did not want to lose the permit.  Until he sells, he will rent it out and hopes to rent it to people who will help him with work around the property. Like the rest of us, he is beginning to feel his age…he is six months older than me, and really wants some help.  Well, actually he really wants to sell.

He started talking about how he might have to raise the price as he has continued to put so much money into the property.  I know some local folks think his price is high, but certainly for anyone from California…or even the Seattle area, the price seems reasonable.  I know that you could not build that lodge for the price of the property.  I really want to see this happen.  We never wanted to buy it by ourselves as we do not have the energy to do everything that is needed there, as well as at Dragonbelly and San Mateo Ecovillage.  If we had cashed out our building that we sold in San Mateo, we could have had the money to buy it and rent it out while waiting for the right people to co-own, but we are “holding paper” so do not have the cash.

The vineyard picture looks like it was taken years ago.  The vines are lush and productive with two types of wine grapes.  Zillow listing shows a lower value, but I don’t think they understand what is there.
