The Staunton Choral Gardens is located in Downtown Staunton,
Virginia. It has an excellent location, outstanding facilities, and
a very successful business model.
The Inn is located within walking distance of everything in Downtown
Staunton. A stroll down Staunton's main street is very unique.
You'll find over a dozen fine restaurants, nine art galleries,
several specialty shops, a book store, and so much more. You
can also hop on the trolley (25 cents) which travels around the downtown
area and over to the city park and back (about a 25 minute trip).
The Staunton Choral Gardens has three guest rooms (all with private
bathrooms), plus a small 4th bedroom, and an additional upstairs
room called the "snack room" -- all on the second floor in the main inn;
and on the first floor you'll find a spacious innkeepers' quarters with
private entrance plus several common rooms and a stainless/granite
kitchen. There's a separate
two-story historic carriage house, several lovely gardens, and an additional
craftsman-style house which books as a vacation rental house. You can purchase just the
main inn/carriage house or the main inn/carriage house/craftsman-style
The gardens in the back property have been the location for many
small weddings which are held at the inn. Guests can enjoy the
European-style courtyard with grape wines all along one side, which
serves as a
back drop to the water garden and courtyard seating area.
There is also a lower garden and a private "Secret Garden" -- a
special place to spend a quiet afternoon. Enter through the
arch and sit on a bench under a very large shade tree. There is even a
covered porch swing in the lower garden.
More and more people are hearing about Downtown Staunton which has
become known as a cultural community. Staunton is now
well-known for both the performing arts (several theaters, including
the one-and-only indoor Shakespeare theater) as well as the visual
arts (nine art galleries downtown). In addition, other major
attractions (Polyface Farms, the Frontier Culture Museum, Andre
Viette's Farm and Nursery, Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library,
etc.) and a variety of special events throughout the year (the
Heifetz International Music Institute, the Staunton Music Festival,
the Fall Foliage Annual Bike Ride, the Maple Festival, the Fortune
and Williams Music Festival, the Winter Wine Festival, etc.)
consistently draw people to this area. Each of these is
an opportunity for Innkeepers to host visitors who are coming into
the area. Staunton is centrally located between five colleges
and universities as well as a private boarding school for girls, all
of which provide an opportunity for Innkeepers to host relatives for
different weekends throughout the year.
The Staunton Choral Gardens has been in operation for over ten
years and business has increased steadily each year as the inn’s
reputation has grown. In 2012, revenues increased remarkably
due to an ever-increasing awareness of the community and well
exceeded six figures for 2012 even though the B&B was closed part of
the time, providing a very tidy profit after
expenses. The year 2013 was also an excellent year. There is even ample opportunity to improve
revenues and profits as the current owners operate the inn only an average of four nights a week and often close the
B&B for several days, or even as long as a month, in order to enjoy
travel and also to spend time at a home they own in another area.
Each of the properties can be negotiated to sell with all or most of the furnishings if the new
Financials are available upon request to a qualified purchaser.
The real estate market is beginning to change in Staunton (and
elsewhere in the US).
At this time, the inn is offered for $500,000, which includes two buildings --
the main inn and the carriage house. The separate
is offered for $215,000.
