Unique Opportunity

The Edgehill Manor Guest House on Rosemont Avenue in Pembroke is a beautiful and successful guest house — and a truly unique opportunity. Edgehill Manor still enjoys high occupancies year-round both from tourists and business travelers, and is being sold as a going concern. This highly lucrative business has been owner-operated for decades, and 95% of the guests are repeat visitors who have enjoyed

“…the excellent service that is so important in the hotel industry, meticulously cleaned rooms and that the staff go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable…”. On .32 acres, with two substantial water tanks plus Watlington water and a well to supply the toilets, Edgehill is located within walking distance of Hamilton. All fourteen rooms enjoy bathrooms en suite and some have kitchenettes and private balconies. This established property, which also includes pool and staff rooms with en suite bathrooms and kitchen, has enjoyed an excellent reputation for many years and benefits from a devoted clientele who return again and again to enjoy the comfortable and tastefully decorated spacious rooms, delicious breakfasts and friendly, helpful staff. Offered for sale at $4,500,000 with Joy Lusher Real Estate.
