Montanans with more than $20,000 in cash could be allowed to buy a graystone in Montana, a popular outdoor attraction.
Montana’s Graystone Lodge opened in 2015 and now hosts more than 2,500 people.
It’s owned by a couple from St. Helena, Montana.
The lodge sits on a bluff overlooking the Black River.
Montanans who have less than $50,000 can buy the lodge, which will include a large, outdoor pavilion, a small pool, and a private restroom.
The property is located in a wooded area.
The state has set aside $15 million for this project.
The state’s Department of Tourism said the state is looking at “new and innovative ideas” to help with its preservation.
“We are currently looking at a range of ideas to preserve this property in a way that’s economically sustainable,” a Tourism spokeswoman told NBC News.
The resort is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
It has hosted weddings, baptisms, family reunions, and the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.
The lodge is popular because of its small size, and visitors pay $50 a day for access to the water.
The owners hope to sell the property to help cover costs.
“It’s not just about money.
It is about keeping this place going, and maintaining a community,” John Brown, the lodge’s owner, said.
Brown and his wife, Mary, said they are “100 percent committed” to keeping the lodge open and maintaining the tradition.
They are also “extremely excited” to see what kind of economic impact the sale will have on the community.
“This is a place where people come to come, and it’s a place that is open 24 hours a day,” Brown said.
“This is just a part of our heritage.”
Brown and Mary also want to preserve the lodge as an attraction for tourists, who flock to the area year-round.
“I think people should come here and do what they do.
It would be nice to see it become a tourist attraction,” Brown added.
“We’d love to see people come in here and stay and have a good time.”
