Welcome to the Oxford Inn and Popes Tavern. Nestled at the head of Oxford Town Creek and docks, just off the Tred Avon River and down the tree-lined street from the Bellevue Oxford Ferry, you'll discover a most amazing historic property. Built circa 1890, this colonial Bed and Breakfast and tavern is on one of the oldest streets in America. While the rest of the world bustles about elbow to elbow, this is the peaceful enclave of living you've been romanticizing about for years but in your case, it can become a reality! This grand Victorian 6000+ square foot Inn boasts a large dining room with seating for 40+, a large verdana to accommodate an additional 20 dining guests for outdoor dining, a large tavern with 12 extra patron seating and bar, full service and prep culinary master-chef's kitchen, pantry, walk-in, downstairs bath, private dining room for 10 special guests, and a retail space. The Inn has 7 large and fully furnished bedrooms and baths, plus a 2 bedroom 2 bath suite with living room and kitchenette, and a large office suite. You'll find wood plank floors throughout and original tin type ceilings. When you enter from the extra wide front veranda, your senses will tingle as though you entered a Herman Melville novel maritime tavern and inn. Your senses aren't playing tricks on you. With minimum effort, you could recreate the tradition of glamorous style or continue to operate this grand mansion by giving casual elegant comfort, food, and drink to weary and grateful travelers the world over. There are also two storage units in the rear of the property with a large enough parcel footprint to expand and there is free town parking across the street. This Inn has been operating for years and has been a destination location for decades. There's only one thing to consider- why are you waiting?
