“Schitt’s Creek” may have aired its final episode almost a year ago, but the Pop original series is still attracting leagues of new fans (aka Schittheads) thanks to its availability on Netflix, as well as continually racking up awards (it is nominated for five at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards, including Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series). And now, the property that masqueraded as the Schitt’s Creek Motel/Rosebud Motel throughout the show’s six-season run has hit the market! For a cool $1,591,561 (CAD 2,000,000), you, too, can make like David (Dan Levy), Alexis (Annie Murphy), Moira (Catherine O’Hara) and Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) by forever checking in to the moderate digs. (Business center, hammam spa and extra towels not included.)
Located at 308399 Hockley Rd. in Mono, Ontario, about 50 miles northwest of downtown Toronto, the property’s listing is held by Robin McLuskie of Colliers. Known as the Hockley Motel, the structure was operating as housing for Canadian basketball recruits when it was pegged for its starring role on “Schitt’s Creek” in 2014. (Denver Nuggets’s player Jamal Murray and the Spanish Liga ACB Fuenlabradas’ Kyle Alexander both lived on the premises for a time!)
Built in the 1960s, the lodging sits tucked away on a 6.7-acre parcel that abuts the Nottawasaga River. Said to consist of nine rooms on the show, the 4,300-square-foot property is actually comprised of six apartment-like units with kitchenettes and baths, as well as a two-story, three-bedroom, one-bath space that serves as a manager’s suite.
There is also a 700-square-foot detached guest cottage, a mobile home with a Florida room and a three-stall horse barn on the grounds. Per Redfin, the site includes an upgraded septic system, as well, so feel free to insert your own “Schitt” jokes here.
The listing describes the place as being “non-operational,” but, according to iHeartRadio, current owner Jesse Tipping, who snapped the place up in 2012 for $820,000, “would love to see the property’s next owner turn it into a ‘Schitt’s Creek’-themed motel as a tribute to the show.”
Details about the site’s history are scant, but Tipping told Orangeville.com he thinks the structure initially operated as a “party spot” or a resort and that at one point the grounds boasted a swimming pool that has since been filled in.
