Looking for the perfect gift for a Schitt’s Creek fan in your life and have a spare $1.59 million USD? Well, you’re in luck because you could be the proud new owner of the IRL Rosebud Motel.
Huge, I know.
Although the show has wrapped and we won’t be seeing Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara in the motel anymore, now is the chance for you to live out your IRL Schitt’s Creek dreams.
The property, which is actually called the Hockley Motel, is located in Ontario, Canada, and could be yours for a little over $2 million Australian dollarydoos, which is a bargain, if you ask me.
Apart from the fact that you’re buying a piece of television history (the motel was also featured in Umbrella Academy and the 2005 film A History of Violence, the motel itself is a pretty great buy.
According to the listing, it’s located just outside of Greater Toronto, so you can escape the big city but still be close enough to yeet into town when you want.
“The property is set on an expansive site with ±1,265 feet of frontage on Hockley Road surrounded by nature, including Nottawasaga River – a highly desirable fishing river for Rainbow Trout and Salmon – at the back of the site,” the description reads.
The Hockley Motel isn’t currently operating as a business, but as the proud new owner, you could spruce it up and cash in on Schitt’s Creek fans for the rest of your days.
I mean, current owner Jesse Tipping already confirmed to IHeartRadio last year that the place is a popular tourist destination for the show’s fans.
“It’s been a little bit of a circus,” he said. “There’s just car after car after car of people rolling in trying to take pictures. Yesterday I stopped by and the traffic was stopped in front of it… It’s a little bit wild.”
With 10 rooms including a 2-storey manager’s suite and a separate cottage, an active river on-site and a Christmas tree farm just down the road, this place basically sells itself.
Unfortunately, Eugene and Dan Levy, Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy are sold separately.
