We are pleased to announce the sale of the former Mount Bachelor Academy facility. The transaction closed on November 29, 2016 with a transaction value of $950,000. Brokers Jay Lyons, CCIM and Graham Dent along with Jay Sholl of CBRE represented the seller in the sale of the 53.3 acre location that is 27 miles northeast of Prineville, in the Ochoco National Forest.

The property holds 40 buildings, including cabins, dormitories, lodges, a kitchen, a large six-bedroom home, a pool and a newly constructed gym. The facility was originally built for and functioned as a boarding school, however, it is a great space for a camp or resort with plenty of housing and activities on-site. The national forest surrounds the property.

Since the property is in a remote location, Jay Lyons said, it has been vacant for some time. “It’s great to see it purchased by a local investor who is interested in putting the property to good use. We were fortunate to find this buyer.”

The buyers, David and Janette Roth, were represented by brokers Stephen Toomey, CCIM and Joel Thomas of Compass Commercial. Scheduling for use of the property will be through the Christmas Valley Community Church, in Christmas Valley, Oregon. The new owners are “excited about using this beautiful and functional facility for various groups in and around Central Oregon who want to experience the transforming love of Jesus Christ in a fun and interactive environment.”
