The Lodge at Painted Rock is a picturesque 70-acre outdoor hospitality property along the scenic Kern River in California's Sierra Nevada which has been operating as a premier Western-style event center. It has now received approved entitlements to begin operation as a year-round destination retreat and is just awaiting a buyer to add the overnight accommodations according to their own specifications. Infrastructure has already been completed in several areas on the property to allow quick addition of modular cabins or glamping accommodations for the upcoming summer vacation season.
The property currently contains a spectacular 7,200 square-foot timber lodge used as a community event and dining center, and also boasts outdoor event areas such as a pond-side wedding trellis, expansive lawn, and dramatic staircase. Landscaping, electrical and security systems have been completed within the main public areas of the property. Septic, water, and fire systems have been pre-built for adding the accommodations. In place are graded roads throughout the property, parking lots, and an emergency helipad. The full perimeter of the property has been fenced. An adjacent 2-bedroom/2-bath home/manager's residence is available for separate purchase.
The property holds a fully approved conditional use permit for a retreat with 50 lodging accommodations, with the ability to make changes to quantity or type by amendment to the existing permit. Recreational facilities such as a pool, fitness center, amphitheater, and horse corral/riding trails have been pre-approved and could be added if and when the buyer desires. Changes and expansion to the property can be made in phases as needed with no deadlines for final completion.
The Wild and Scenic Kern River flows through the property and the Lodge is just two miles from Lake Isabella, one of the largest freshwater lakes in California. It is a perfect location for sports and nature enthusiasts to enjoy whitewater rafting/kayaking, fishing, windsurfing/sailing, horseback riding, mountain biking, and hiking. In addition, cattle ranching, rodeos, and gold prospecting are still active in the valley so visitors can enjoy traditional Western culture. For a video review of the sports and activities in the Kern River Valley, see www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WVTh4rFfPs.
Because of its advantageous southern location in the Sierra mountain range, the Lodge is within a 3 to 4-hour drive for 22 million people in Southern California and is only 2-1/2 hours from Los Angeles. It is well-positioned to meet the demand of this large metropolitan market for retreats and unique family experiences that only natural surroundings can provide.
The owners are retiring and are seeking a purchaser to take the property to the next level. It is privately held, so they are able to negotiate sales terms and conditions to meet individual buyer needs. Site visits to the property are encouraged; until then a drone video can be viewed at www.vimeo.com/298477102.
