A truly unique opportunity to own a business that has been transformed into a British Tea Room, while having the benefit of a house all in one. This business has it all- with a thatched roof cottage designed from the original Anne Hathaway Cottage in Shottery, England. The business was originally built in 2008 as a Bed and Breakfast, however, the current owners had a dream of a British Tea Room, with a $60,000 renovation providing a commercial kitchen, total electric rewiring, parking lot installation, and much more to provide the perfect opportunity for a special event venue, bed and breakfast, bistro, a future tasting room; which could also provide for wine dinners and so much more opportunity that can be gained from the upgrades provided.
The business has a full basement for storage, 3 bedrooms, a small private dining area, a large quaint dining area with a fireplace, stainless steel commercial kitchen, 2 decks for additional seating, 2 storage sheds, and a beautifully landscaped outside with a private sectioned area providing the perfect location for weddings and special events. A bragging right for the business is that it has been featured on the CNN Travel as one of the 11 best tea rooms in the world, boasting elegant china, silver flatware and eye catching décor.
The dynamic City of Staunton is located at the crossroads of Interstates 81 and 64 in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley. With a population of more than 24,000, Staunton boasts a laid-back, welcoming atmosphere signature of a small town, but also offers one-of-a-kind cultural amenities that you're more likely to find in a larger, metropolitan area. With a relatively low cost of living and close proximity to the Virginia cities of Waynesboro (15 mi), Harrisonburg (29 mi), Charlottesville (40 mi), Richmond (108 mi) and even Washington, D.C. (157 mi), Staunton is the ideal place to visit or call home.
Consider the following when you think of Staunton, VA:
• Affordable housing with the average home price in Staunton a fraction of those in major cities such as Washington, D.C, Philadelphia, or New York City

• Beautiful parks, a municipal golf course, nearby hiking and biking trails, mountain views and 2,000 acres of protected open space
• A choice of two airports (Shenandoah Valley (SHD) and Charlottesville (CHO)) within a 45-minute drive that offer commercial service, easy parking, and convenient connections to international airports
• Restaurants at all price points, ranging from artisanal pizza to fine dining, from sunny cafes to home-style Southern cooking.
Staunton was named one of the best small towns in America by Smithsonian magazine, one of the great small towns near D.C. by Washingtonian, and one of America's greatest main streets by Travel & Leisure.
The Staunton Downtown Development Association,a nationally accredited Main Street program,works in tandem with the City to enhance downtown Staunton's economic environment as a center of commerce while maintaining the character and integrity of the city's Central Business District. This non-profit volunteer-based association receives some of its funding from the City. SDDA has been serving the Staunton since 1995. The city planners in Staunton, Virginia, were very careful to preserve the town's heritage, keeping power lines and cell towers out of view in the historic districts, allowing nothing to interrupt the charm of local restaurants and shops operating out of original Victorian storefronts. Staunton is also the home to the Frontier Culture Museum, The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and the American Shakespeare Center, staging plays at the world's only replica of the Blackfriars Playhouse.
The location for this business is ideal to capture all of the splendor that the Shenandoah Valley has to offer; located near the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway just off of I-81. Beverley Street is the main commercial thoroughfare through the historic district of Staunton, VA. The Cottage is within the Newtown historic district. This business is a must see as the landscaping has provided for a very private feel, upon entering the drive it will transform you into an English setting making you feel like you are on vacation and experiencing something magical!

|Competition:||The Tea room has no direct competition in this area. The City is very supportive of this business and works hand in hand with marketing. Currently the Tea room is partnering with the Shakespeare play to bring busloads of out of town guests into Staunton for the play and High Tea at the cottage after the performance.|
|Growth Potential:||The owners currently operate 8 months out of the year for lunch, you can expand the dining hours and do a 12 month business. Bed and breakfast potential, wine and/or beer tasting room, private wine dinners, and the biggest opportunity is to market more on the special event side to secure more wedding and private party listings which are sought after currently for this location. The eclectic mix of entertainment in the area draws tourists in the arts and music community with theater which provides much support to this business in it's location, and for years to come.|
|Training/Support:||Owner is willing to stay and train a new buyer as needed.|
