Are you sick of being chained to a desk and yearn for the great outdoors? If you love skiing, mountain biking or hiking in one of NZ's most stunning landscapes, then we have the business for you.
Station Lodge is a hostel that looks out over Mt Ruapehu in the Central North Island. It looks after a wide range of skiers in the winter months when the town quadruples in size thanks to its three nearby ski fields.
In the summer months it is blessed by being located near NZ's most popular day walk, the Tongario Crossing, which has 120,000 walkers annually. There are other stunning walks and mountain bike tracks right on your doorstep, and more to come with further tourism opportunities being developed in this unique setting.
The lodge business offers a good mix of backpacker accommodation, right through to self-contained apartments, and is easily handled by 2 working owners and a couple of additional staff. The facilities are fantastic, have been very well maintained, and offer a quality not often seen at back packer level.
There is sufficient land to grow the accommodation business if you wanted, as well as scope to add more value with ski or mountain bike hire, convenience store goods, or cooked meals on site.
The current owners have enjoyed this business for the last 8 years and their kids have been born and raised here. They have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and from all walks of life. A dream opportunity for someone seeking a rewarding adventure.
Price $880,000 including freehold $790,000
