Minnewaska Bait and Tackle is For Sale!

Minnewaska Bait and Tackle is For Sale! (by owner)

It’s been a great run!

For 30 years, Diane and Larry Jensen have owned Minnewaska Bait and Tackle. They’ve built a successful business, raised their two boys here, and become active members of the Minnewaska area community, serving in the schools, Minnewaska Lake Association, Glenwood Chamber of Commerce, and in their church. But it feels like it’s time to retire and pass the business on to someone new, who will carry on the legacy of Minnewaska fishing for another 30 years.

The business is located on MN Hwy 29, a block from Starbuck Marina and Hobo Park. High visibility! The business includes an attached 3 BR residence with hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, skylights, remodeled bath with Jacuzzi tub. In 2004, we built a huge garage that will fit 2 cars plus your boat, toys, and inventory storage. The large corner lot includes 2 patios, pergola, easy care flower garden, and a vegetable plot. We’ve made many recent updates, including a new roof, interior and exterior painting, newer furnace,  and new energy efficient lighting and display shelving in the store. All current inventory is included as well. A turn-key operation – move in and start generating income!

Starbuck is a family friendly community with a lot to offer. Great schools are the centerpiece of the area, with Minnewaska Area High School providing a great education. We are located only 2 blocks from Starbuck City Park and Starbuck Beach. The bike trail across the road goes all the way to Glacial Lakes State Park to the south, and all the way to Glenwood to the east. We are about a mile to the Starbuck Municipal Airport, where fishermen from all over the country fly in to fish Lake Minnewaska and attend the annual Fly-In Breakfast over the 4th of July weekend. Starbuck’s Heritage days, held over the weekend closest to the 4th of July, draws crowds to the community that greatly boosts the local economy. It’s a HUGE weekend for us, and we offer a sidewalk sale that our regular customers are excited about, and brings in a ton of new customers, too.

If you are interested in the opportunity to be your own boss while making your  passion and hobby your life’s work, we would be delighted to tell you more.
