McCORMICK, South Carolina – The conference center once known as Savannah Lakes Lodge will sell at auction Wednesday, April 4, with John Dixon & Associates conducting the auction.
The auction will include the 22,000-square-foot conference center, the 80-room lodge, the 5,000-square-foot lakefront restaurant, the pool, two tennis courts, an 18-hole miniature golf course and approximately 514 acres of land.
“The conference center and lodge have been closed for a few years, but they can be updated so that the resort can once again become a popular destination for vacationers. All of the land will sell absolute, with no minimum or reserve. As we see our economy growing stronger by the day, this is a great time for someone to obtain a resort and land that could become a very profitable vacation destination,” said John Dixon, president of the auction company.
The conference center, lodge, restaurant, pool, tennis courts, miniature golf course and other structures will sell as an entirety. “The buildings are furnished, right down to the guest rooms, and there’s some nice furniture in there,” said Dixon.
The 514 acres of land will sell in 10 tracts, ranging from two acres to 214 acres. The land fronts on paved roads and has sewer and water service, as well as underground utilities, including fiber optic cable in front of all the tracts.
The auction will begin at 11 a.m. Wednesday, April 4, at Hickory Knob State Park, 1591 Resort Drive, McCormick, South Carolina, 29835.
Auction personnel will be available at the conference center to accommodate inspections and provide detailed information on March 28-29 and April 3-4. Individuals seeking times and information about the land and facilities may visit www.johndixon.com or call 800-479-1763.
