The Oddfellow Inn and Farm and Maison just north of Helena has gone on the sale block with its co-owner saying Friday that they had a good run during his nearly three years of ownership, but never really completely recovered from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The sale price is $2.89 million and includes the 20,288-square-foot inn on 41 acres, 30 bedrooms, four kitchens, four wells, surface water rights to Seven Mile Creek, a wine cellar, a pond, an orchard and livestock.
“Everything is available,” said Jared Engels, who has co-owned the 30-bedroom inn along with husband Paul Mabie and Mabie’s parents since 2019.
He said they’d like to see it continue with someone else at the reins.
“We poured everything into it,” Engels, a real estate broker, said, adding they opened the business just as the pandemic surfaced. “We hit the ground running, but we never got over the hump due to COVID.”
