Seller willing to carry 50% on Motel and Lodge.

This clean, updated facility has been operated as a motel, but would make an excellent Church camp or summer camp, corporate getaway, or even an expansive private residence for an extended family. This property has been successfully operated as a Motel, restaurant and resort since 1958, but there are numerous ways one could further monetize this property. This land by itself is unique and inherently valuable because this is one of the few commercial properties on the North side of the Lake that is located on the SOUTH SIDE of the Highway, thus putting it closer to the lake.  Why camp in the sand when you can enjoy a hot shower, a clean bed, and flushing toilets just a few hundred yards from the water? Possibilities are endless!

The main lodge features a full commercial kitchen with two commercial broasters, each capable of making 70 pieces of broasted chicken every 20 minutes. The current Owners have used it for special events, but it could easily be put to use as a full time restaurant.  The current Owners have done very well by focusing only on the Motel, but there is so much more that could be offered by someone with an entrepreneurial spirit and energy!

Lake McConaughy is a premier destination for recreationalists. The 22 mile long crystal clear lake boasts miles and miles of sugar sand beaches, as it sits at the base of the famed Nebraska Sandhills. Fishing is excellent, and there are many opportunities for waterfowl, turkey and deer hunting around this lake and the vicinity. This would be an excellent lodge for an outfitter. The property is adjacent to and enjoys access to Otter Creek. There is a small waterfall on the creek at this location, and the Walleye fishing is amazing. You and your guests can walk down and enjoy some fishing where the Walleyes are large and plentiful!

The property has a large and very clean fish-cleaning station for its guests.

The Owners have in place a state-of-the-art reservation system that allows people to book online or over the phone. It processes credit card payments, and produces reports for bookkeeping and tax preparations. It also has a website developed and in place (​ ). Both of these vital business tools are included in the sale of the property, as well as a full surveillance system.
