The motel then starred on the show when it started in 2014 and still attracts fans who find the show on Netflix for the first time and then come to pose outside the building when they are in the area.

The motel is located on 6.7 acres along the banks of the Nottawasaga River.

On the show, the motel is described as having nine rooms, but in reality six units, complete with a bedroom and bathroom, make up the 4,300-square-foot property, along with a two-story manager suite with three bedrooms and a bathroom.

Also on the property is a detached guest house of 700 square meters and a barn with space for three horses.

Current owner Jesse Tipping bought the place in 2012 for $ 820,000, so he will have doubled his money if he manages to sell for the current asking price.

Tipping said he would “ like to see the next owner of the property turn it into a Schitt’s Creek themed motel as a tribute to the show. ”

The site was featured in the pilot episode of Schitt’s Creek, in which lead characters, the wealthy Roses, end up in financial ruin after falling victim to a fraudulent business manager.

The family is displaced from their mansion and forced to move into the only property that the IRS has not seized, a small town called Schitt’s Creek.

The fish-out-of-water series about a wealthy family who, during troubled times, ended up in a middle-of-nowhere town they just happen to own, started to gain steadily in word of mouth and became something of a sleeper.

The motel then starred on the show when it started in 2014 and still attracts fans who find the show on Netflix for the first time and then come to pose outside the building when they are in the area.

The motel appeared on every episode, providing a perfect backdrop for the quirky show.

‘The building itself really matched what the creative team had in mind. It was just a venue that worked perfectly for us, ” said Executive Producer Andrew Barnsley Orangeville website.

Fans of the show and potential buyers should be aware, however, that the motel world at Schitt’s Creek is nothing like that of the Hockley Motel.

All the interior scenes of the Rosebud were filmed on a set built in several studios in the Toronto area.

None of the interior scenes on the show were filmed on the 6.7-acre property
