Explore the opportunity to own and operate one of the most unique and historic properties in Dubuque, Iowa! Offered for sale is the profitable Redstone Inn & Suites at 504 Bluff Street in the vibrant lower downtown area of this bustling Mississippi River town. The Queen Anne structure was constructed in 1894 by local industrialist A.A. Cooper (Cooper Wagon Works) as a wedding gift for his daughter, Elizabeth. It is the last of three Cooper homes that remain and is recognized as an Iowa Historic Site and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
As you enter the building from 5th Street, you'll be greeted by a grand staircase, parlor and dining room for hosting guests. Stained glass, hand-carved wood details and original fireplaces are prevalent and will leave you in awe and amazement at the quality of craftsmanship in the property. Travel up the open staircase while being surrounded by original artwork, photos and other treasures that help tell the story of the building's history. The 15 guestrooms are nicely appointed with antique furniture and fixtures that will remain with the property. For the owner-operator is a private two-bedroom inn keeper's suite allowing you to be present but still being able to retire your own private space at the end of the day.
The property was completely updated in the 1980's and has received a new roof, boilers and other mechanical updates in recent years. The new owner will have the benefit of taking on a profitable turnkey business that is extremely efficient to operate.
The location of the property is a few blocks from lower Main Street, Five Flags, Port of Dubuque, National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium, Fenelon Place Elevator, shops, cafés, restaurants, Diamond Jo Casino, the downtown business district and the up-and-coming warehouse district. The Redstone Inn in Dubuque, Iowa - the dream could be yours!
