Lake Shetek Lodge and Motel sold for $540,000
By Per Peterson
Lance Rogers doesn’t have many details to share yet, but he definitely has plans.
Rogers — along with his fiancée, Tammy Brink, and Chuck Cessna and his wife, Robin, Tammy’s cousin — are the new owners of the nearly 40-year-old Lake Shetek Lodge and Motel on Lake Shetek. The business was transferred from previous owner, John Mahrt, to its new owners at auction Sunday. The business — which sits on more than 460 feet of shoreline, includes 22 units in two buildings, plus 10 campsites with full hook-ups — sold for $540,000.
“There are going to be a lot of major changes here,” Rogers said. “We may be selling some condos out of here and dividing this place up a little bit. Or we might leave it the same. We’re exploring a lot of options right now.”
He said if the decision is made to make the move to condos, that would happen in the west building — somewhere around eight or nine of them, he estimated. The building closest to Key Largo would remain a rental resort.
“Just in the last day, we’ve had four people interested in condos already,” he said.
