A Little Cold Right Now? Well, Have We Got Some News For You! Palm Gardens For Sale!
Feeling a little nippy out today? Today you can start your fantasy Florida move. The Palm Gardens is for sale, and you now could own a real hot spot of Lake Dora Chain Of Lakes Magic. Now, if you are like me, all you know is the restaurant and glorious bar.
BUT? who knew it was a massive fish camp? Not me.
Now of course you are starting your day dreaming, Owning a bar, being a fun local down around the lake. So lets see you we are not the only ones dreaming today. ONLY 80ish Days til the Big Lake Dora Show! Woohooo. Just enough time to close and move in…. to a trailer.
I went there by land. Got lost and toured the property. Much nicer approach by water. Wonder if the pre purchase inspection will mention the trees inside the bar need trimmed.
WOW! With land on both sides of the river and road frontage on 441 that place could be a real Gold Mine.
In the mean time I hope the recipe for the Onion Burger is part of the purchase agreement.
One of my favorite headers Troy. I recall that moment. Bay Horse battery was dead, and we paralell parked WECATCHEM between two woodys. Scared the crap out of me. Thats Al Benton at the table with the Boatress and full WoodyBoater gang eating our hearts out.
Good Food, Good Beer, Great Friends and Great Boats!
What more could a person ask for?
Ad mentions pontoon boat rentals…what would you do about that ?
Hand out pamphlets offering help and recovery services? Who knows how many pontoon renters could be saved?
I say we all go in together…throw in 10 grand each and form WOODYCORP….and go on from there!!!!! World domination!!!!
Sad news; more of the passing of old Florida. You don’t have to be Nostradamus to see what’s next. A developer will buy it, flatten it, and build upscale condos. The middle class fishing families will be pushed out. The restaurant’s prices will be doubled, and the menu filled with tofu cakes and soy burgers. Yuk!
When my boat conked out there three years ago, the folks running the place kindly towed me all the way back to the show docks. Think the new corporate owners would do that?
MooseMeat you should buy it!
We will all be glad to spend our money with you.
Nothing better than lunch by the lake at a resort and finding other wooden boats at the dock.
C’mon now Matt — stay focused! Your’e going to need almost that much $$$’s to keep that ‘new’ cruiser maintained/updated.
… from someone who’s been there.
Hate to admit it …but I fear Moosemeat sees the future.
What a cool place….rivals Alabama Jacks on Card sound at the top of the Keys….where I will be hangin out 3 weeks or so!!!
With my girlfriend …on our way to Key West.
Reality is though that a/the hurricane could have leveled the place (as we feared) and then the developers would have been spared some expense but still been on it like the sharks they are.
As to price….well, like some woodyboaters I know…they have one too many zeros at the end…so the commas are misplaced too. imho
John in Va.
Hate to say it, but guessing on the rentals, bar, etc income couldnt be a third of that price, somebody will doze the place for some sort of cluster development.
Gross $1MM? Who cares. Net man. It’s the net that matters. Great memories there.
