Details

The historic (circa 1852) White Sulphur Springs Hotel/Resort, with its valid 33 hotel key entitlements, was built in 1852 and designed to cater to the SF elite who traveled by ferry and stagecoach to reach this country oasis with its unique medicinal sulphur springs. The facility was operational through 2020 when all but 3 buildings were lost in the Glass Fire. Two of these remaining undamaged buildings contain 25 functional guest rooms, which could be immediately put to use while a new high-end “wine camp/retreat” with hotel accommodations was being redesigned and redeveloped to offer, in part: a fun, unique and educational winemaking/wine production experience at multiple vineyards and winery’s to include wine reception, lunch and dinners presented by fine chefs, culinary teams and winemakers looking at the cause and effect of food to wine and much more. This property is located in a private forested canyon approx. 5 minutes from St. Helena’s famous Main Street. A year round stream runs down its center allowing development on both sides. The entitlements also allow redevelopment of a restaurant/spa/events/weddings plus the possible development of a hospitality and/or wine cave subject to County approval. A trophy investment opportunity any way you look at it!
