The Continental Divide Lodge in Canada’s Yukon
Considering Lodge Ownership in the Yukon?
This Lodge / RV Park/ Restaurant is a great offer for a young family or semi retired couple who are thinking to move to the Yukon, aside from the Winters.
Work six month and relax the other six months in Mexico!
That’s possibility with this investment!
Located on the north bank of the Rancheria River with great views of the Swift River Mountains you will find the Continental Divide Lodge. An excellent location for year round travelers.
The offering includes R.V. Park, Gas Station, Motel and Restaurant income! And of course a Residence for the Owner/ Operator.
THE RV PARK
The RV Park with a possible 42- 44 RV ranging from no services to sites with water. Hydro is available for 30 stalls with 30 amps and 12 stalls with 15 amp. There is also TV and the Internet hook up available.
The Motel which was prebuilt by Atco in Calgary and transported to the Yukon in the year 2000, consists of eight spacious rooms, two big group accommodation rooms, laundry, office, managers suite and washrooms.
The Motel itself is set up as a self-check in operation and requires low maintenance and operation cost.
The Pub is approximately 1200 square feet and seats about 20 people. Equipped with coolers, serving equipment, a big screen TV and a stereo. Everything to make your guests visit as comfortable and enjoy it to the best as it can be.
The restaurant has a warm and colorful atmosphere and has a wood-burning stove. Approximately 1200 square feet and licensed to seat 40 people.
At this time Pub and Restaurant are leased out to a third party operator.
The Gas Station is a contract free service station with a 40% profit margin. It delivers high yields and could be run year round to improve the income.
Besides the buildings mentioned earlier, there is an older 5000 Square ft Log Building on the property, which currently is used for storage. This building could be remodeled to a lovely Guest House or Lodge Building. It offers an open floor plan and an impressive open fire Place.
Three log cabins are also on the property. Their main usage comes into place at the fall season of the year, when they are rented out to hunters.
The owner's residence is the newest building on the property.
It is a solar powered (100 amps, 12 volts, 3 kilowatts solar, two-bedroom home, with open kitchen and living room.
A generator for back up power is in place together with a well and a big fresh water holding tank.
As this property is remote and away from any infrastructure, it generates its very own electricity with one of three modern diesel generators.
In 2002 there was a new septic system installed in the R.V. Park, Motel, public laundry, washrooms, and managers suit. This system is big enough for a significant larger operation.
This property sits in a great location on the Alaska Highway. There are no full-size trademarked service stations available in any close distance. If you have the funds to change this property into one of the big player trademarks like Shell, Esso or Husky you will have a real money maker.
The Seller is willing to consider another property as a down payment and may carry some financing!

From Prince George in Northern BC, the Alaska Highway (Highway 97) stretches north to Watson Lake and the British Columbia-Yukon border, including Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson, and Monkman, Stone Mountain, Muncho Lake, and Liard River Hot springs Provincial Parks.
The highway is one of Canada's most memorable driving routes to explore. This route that is as scenic as you can dream of is filled with wilderness beauty and roaming wildlife. At any given moment, on any given day, the local wildlife may appear on the side of the road.
Some of the wildlife seen along the route include deer, caribou, bears, wolves, moose and more. The entire course includes trips through deep valleys, over mountains, around lakes and over hundreds of rivers and creeks.
There are over 100 major bridges and over 8000 culverts located along the historic route. Pink Mountain at "Mile 143" is one of the highest points along the BC section of the Alaska Highway.
The highest point is Summit Lake located along one of the most scenic parts of the Alaska Highway from Fort Nelson, BC to Watson Lake, Yukon.
Whitehorse, the capital of Canada’s Yukon Territory, is a major stopover point along the Alaska Highway. From historical sites, to live entertainment and beautiful scenery, Whitehorse is a must stop on your vacation. The 20 hours of daily summer sunshine allow you plenty of time to enjoy yourself.
Whitehorse is laid out on a level river shelf of land bordering a full bend on the Yukon River. The town is 1471 kilometres/914 miles northwest of Dawson Creek, British Columbia; 980 kilometres/609 miles from Fairbanks; and 1165 kilometres/724 miles from Anchorage.

ABOUT THE SEPTIC:
New septic system installed in 2002
In 1942, the Canadian and US Governments teamed up together to construct a transportation and military route connecting Alaska with the rest of the USA. A move that came about because of the bombing of Pearl Harbour in 1941 forcing both countries to tighten up their North American borders from future attacks by the Japanese.
Because of the harsh wilderness country, the construction of the massive transportation route was no easy task. It took over seven regiments of American engineers 11,000 men, 16,000 Canadians and American civilians and over 7000 pieces of equipment to successfully carve a route through some of Canada's toughest terrain exposed to some of the harshest elements.
On November 20th, 1942 both governments met at Soldier's Summit located at "Mile 1061" on the Alaska Hwy to cut a ribbon officially opening the highway.
