Kansas City, MO (Vocus) June 10, 2010
A piece of history – a community’s history and a family’s history – will be sold on the auction block next month. Lindsey’s Resort on the Little Red River will be auctioned on June 25 in Heber Springs, Ark.
Conducted by Brad H. Wooley, CAI, auctioneer and president of United Country – Brad Wooley Auctioneers in Little Rock, Ark., the live auction will take place onsite at 350 Rainbow Loop in Heber Springs, Ark. Registration for the event will begin at 12 p.m., and the auction will take place at 1 p.m.
“Bill and Mavis Lindsey opened this resort in the late 1960s, and now that they’re looking for a new owner to purchase and operate the resort, they’ve decided to use the accelerated method of marketing – in other words, an auction – to sell their property,” said Wooley. “What does this mean for buyers? It means they have the opportunity to purchase an incredible waterfront business at an affordable price. Today’s market conditions and the auction format allow sellers and buyers to come to a meeting of the minds quickly with a competitively achieved fair market value.”
Spanning 14.67 acres, this property offers an array of opportunities. Lindsey’s Resort features a small motel, campground with full RV hookups and hot showers, cabins that each contain a bath and kitchenette, and honeymoon cabins with a fireplace, Jacuzzi and river view. The resort also has a modern dock, fishing pier, guide services, boat rentals, gift shop and swimming pool. Offering riverfront dining, the resort’s Pot O’ Gold Restaurant is currently operated seasonally, serving steak, fish, sandwiches and more.
Lindsey’s Resort functions not only as a vacation getaway, but also as an excellent corporate retreat. The facility includes a conference lodge with space for up to 150 guests. Audio and visual equipment is available to rent for meetings, but this space could also serve a more personal function, such as weddings or family reunions. The property also offers vacation cottages for sale that boast all the amenities and security of the resort.
“This auction is the chance of a lifetime. Buyers have the rare opportunity to buy a fantastic family resort in one of Arkansas’ most beautiful places,” said Wooley. “This resort has been a family tradition for more than just the Lindseys. Now you have a chance to make it a part of your own family history.”
