Sign of the Dove is For Sale
This is a turnkey investment, with all furnishings included. The inn has been in continuous operation for 24 years both as a bed & breakfast inn/restaurant and as a bed & breakfast inn only. During the last 8 years it has been a bed and breakfast inn only. However, the dining area and kitchen have been rented for occasional functions by caterers, including weddings, reunions, showers, and other functions. The current owner has maintained a 25% to 40% occupancy rate without ever advertising, except for the web site. If advertising was implemented, especially for Ft Benning weekly graduations, which are 25 miles away, the occupancy rate could be increased. The recently restored visionary art site, Pasaquan, which opened in October, 2016, is now bringing visitors from all over the world to Buena Vista. A new school for Chinese and American students, grades k-12, is now open just 7 miles from the inn. Chinese parents are expected to begin their first visits in the Spring of 2017. The inn also attracts guests due to its central location among several Georgia tourist sites, including Plains (President Carter’s home), Andersonville Civil War Prison, Providence Canyon, Ft Benning’s National Infantry Museum, and the Roosevelt Little White House at Warm Springs, GA.
The very progressive Buena Vista Marion County Chamber of Commerce is active in driving plans to bring new businesses, improve the town square and to implement several new festivals in order to increase tourism.
