The Prospect Historic Hotel Bed and Breakfast Inn – Motel and Dinner House has become available for sale. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a Southern Oregon Icon. The hotel has been a part of the economic and social fabric of Oregon’s history since it was first built in 1888-89. This was the only lodging and dining establishment for many years along the Upper Rogue for travelers visiting Crater Lake. It began as a stop for people traveling from all over the world to visit Crater Lake, eventually becoming a Stage Coach stop. From its humble beginnings as a rough hewn timber building to its current status as an elegant, yet comfortable Bed and Breakfast, the hotel has been providing rest, relaxation and sustenance to weary travelers for over 130 years! Its reputation as a world class facility is known far and wide.
The Prospect Historic Hotel is listed as the A. H. Boothby House on both the National and State Historic Registers and is featured on the state and national scenic byways. Crater Lake National Park is the initial draw for tourism and is a lovely forty-five minute drive away. Once travelers have discovered the region, they realize there is much more to see and do in the region, requiring multiple days to enjoy the sites.
The 5.6 acre property includes the ten room Bed and Breakfast Hotel, the fourteen unit Motel, the fifty seat Dinner House and gorgeous park like grounds. All of this is bordered on one side by Mill Creek, which leads to Mill Creek Falls and the Rogue River. There are numerous Douglas Fir trees, many pine and cedar trees as well as blue spruce and one amazingly tall Giant Sequoia which anchors the property on the front corner. It has long established water rights to Mill Creek.
There is a beautiful 2700 sf log house included which has three bedrooms and two baths. This has functioned as a manager’s residence but could easily be added to the rental inventory. There are numerous out buildings and a reliable and very pure well.
The owners have established strong partnerships with Travel Oregon, Travel Southern Oregon, The Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild, Crater Lake National Park and many International Receptive Tour Operators from all over Europe, Asia and Australia providing professional marketing representation all over the world.
