Property Description

The Jensen Inn

The homes original owner has built a successful Bed and Breakfast over the past 12 years and is now ready to retire. Price just reduced.

The Jensen Inn is a 5,150 square foot home with 6 bedrooms and 7 baths and it sits on 2.5 acres of finished landscaped property with additional land available for purchase up to a total of 26 acres of land in Jensen Utah, about 11 miles east of Vernal.

The Inn is located just 1 mile north of US Highway 40 and is 4.6 miles from the entrance to Dinosaur National Monument’s Dinosaur Quarry Exhibit Hall in Jensen Utah. Over 300,000 visitors annually pass right by the Jensen Inn, as they enter The Dinosaur National Monument, making it an ideal location for many tourist businesses. This steady stream of visitors could be a huge source of income. The Green River is about a mile away, where you and your guests can ride the rapids with one of our local adventure rafting companies, take in some great fishing or hunting in the area.

Although the Inn has a great reputation and history (and a 5-star rating from TripAdvisor with over 100 guest reviews, a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and rated as one of the top 25 values in all of Utah) that does not mean it has to stay a bed and breakfast if you purchase it.

This is a great property with lots of possibilities. Of course, you can keep it a bed and breakfast and expand the business with camping and glamping (Google “glamping” if you aren’t familiar with it as it becoming very popular and profitable). You could just make it a wonderful big single-family home or a home and family farm with the additional land. With the green river just down the road and the close proximity to Dinosaur National Monument and the Colorado state line, you could run many other businesses on the property as well; like a fishing guide, river rafting, tour guide, rehab, camping, or with up to 26 acres of flat and fertile land…the possibilities are endless. The Vernal regional airport is only 13 miles away if your guests will be flying in.

So, although you may decide to make changes to fit your plans; let me tell you a few things about the existing property and its current use.

The Inn is used year-round as a bed and breakfast, with the busy seasons in the months of May through October. The guests, many of whom return time and time again, come from all over the world to visit Dinosaur National Monument which is just up the road a few miles. Some of the guests come to ride the rapids with the local rafting companies or they are here to enjoy fantastic fishing on the green river. There is an outdoor fire-pit where guests can get together and roast smores, tell stories and make new friends.

The farmland that can be purchased with the property is very fertile, has just been rotated and growing alfalfa and is being leased on a year to year basis to local farmers (with no long-term contract) who then split the profits with the owners. There are more than enough water shares to use for agriculture and others for additional homes if you ever decided to subdivide.

The 5.150 square foot, 6 bedrooms and 7 baths home is built with high-quality standards like 2x6 construction, flagstone extracted from a local stone quarry, a large open kitchen with a butcher block island and plenty of seating areas, lots of storage, a relaxing patio with views of Split Mountain and the Dinosaur National Monument, and a peaceful, quiet and relaxing atmosphere.

Some of the extras are; 2 workshops, 3 laundry areas, 2 water heaters, a new roof, the property is wheelchair accessible and there is more water than needed (with separate water shares for the back 8 acres).

Look at the photos and give me a call. Get answers to your questions and let’s talk about the possibilities. This is a rare and wonderful place, and it is just waiting for you to come explore and take this property to a new level of use and enjoyment. Come see it and enjoy all that this beautiful land and its surroundings have to offer.
