Set along Washademoak Lake in beautiful Cambridge Narrows, 1262 Bridge Drive is all set up for business and comes complete! The restaurant area has tables and built-in booths. There’s a handsome bar with seating for 25. The pizza oven and deep fryers in the full, commercial kitchen are ready to be fired up. And the three tastefully decorated and fully furnished second-floor suites are waiting for eager guests.

Everything you need to open up your own waterfront restaurant and inn is included. You just have to hang up your sign!

This is prime boating area with boaters having easy access from Saint John, Fredericton, Rothesay, Quispamsis, Hampton, Gagetown, Grand Lake, Minto, Belleisle Bay, Long Reach, Grand Bay, South Bay, Westfield and beyond!  Boaters long for a lovely stop like this for a lovely dinner, refreshing drinks and even a weekend stay.  The Washademoak Lake is connected to the St. John River, Grand Lake, Belleisle Bay, the Kennebecasis River and the Saint John Harbour leading to the Bay of Fundy!

Formerly a successful restaurant, bar and inn, this property is ideally located in a tourist area close to three campgrounds, a popular antique shop, and next to a community wharf where boaters can moor and come to shore for dinner and drinks. It is also an easy drive from the cities of Fredericton and the villages of Gagetown, Sussex and Jemseg.

The property has been exquisitely maintained and updated by Glenhar Builders, renowned across NB for a higher standard of excellence and quality!  It features a new roof and has been freshly painted throughout as well. Everything from the reception desk cash register, to the restaurant utensils and guest suite linens is included. This is an outstanding business opportunity.  If your dream has been to own and run an Inn, Restaurant and Bar, this is as good as it gets!

With a covered verandah, lovely side gardens and extensive decking, there is no shortage of curb appeal. Come inside to a very welcoming reception area with double French doors opening to the main-floor restaurant. Here you’ll find tables and booths to seat 56 guests, as well as a cozy propane fireplace and a bright, water-facing sunroom with space for another 24 diners. The restaurant has its own washrooms and flows to a beautiful bar area with built-in seating for 25. The bar is fully equipped and includes an espresso machine, coffee bean grinder, sinks, ice storage, oversized beer coolers, and more. Stairs conveniently lead to separate men’s and women’s washrooms for bar customers.

Also off the restaurant is a fully equipped commercial quality stainless steel kitchen which includes fridges, a commercial dishwasher, warming racks, a pizza oven, deep fryers, microwaves, plus, plus, plus. The list is long!

An attractive turned hardwood staircase off the reception area takes guests to the second floor where they’ll find three suites, each with its own private four-piece ensuite bathroom. The hallway has large linen closets to house everything needed to keep guests happy during their stay. There is an emergency exit for safety.

Guest suites #1 and #2 are single rooms with a queen-sized bed, while the second guest suite has two beds (a queen and a double). Each room has two night tables, two dressers, a coffee maker and a television. Suites #1 and #2 also include a table with seating for two. All ensuite bathrooms have a pedestal sink and a tub/shower. The rooms are very clean as is this entire property. Guests could check in today!

Staff or owners quarters are found in the basement level. The staff/owner suite includes two bedrooms, a propane fireplace, a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub and a second bathroom with a separate shower. The lower level also houses the laundry room with a washer and two dryers.

This interesting property could also be converted quite easily to a year-round upscale waterfront cottage or vacation.  The dining room would become the great room, the sun room a den and the commercial kitchen would require kitchen cabinetry to make this the crème de la crème of summer cottages with plenty of room for visiting family and friends!

Open your own restaurant, bar and inn on the beautiful banks of Washademoak Lake. This is a turn-key business waiting for you.
