Owner of Real-Life Schitt’s Creek Motel Plans to Sell Property

Fans of Schitts Creek, rejoice! The real-life motel where the Emmy Award-winning Canadian series was recorded will strike the market, according to the Simcoe County News. Jesse Tipping, the longtime owner of the residential or commercial property, informed the local publication that he prepares to note the Orangeville, Ontario, motel– better known to Schitts fans as the Rosebud Motel– next month. The asking price for the building, initially constructed as a “celebration spot” in the 1960s, was not readily available.Though much of the series occurred in 2 motel spaces– one inhabited by Moira and Johnny Rose, the other by their kids David and Alexis– and the lobby, the entirety of the motel really consists of eight apartment-style rooms and a three-bedroom unit. Prior to Schitts Creek, it functioned as the background for a number of other films and miniseries, consisting of 2005s A History of Violence, the 2016 Hulu series 11.22.63, and The Umbrella Academy.The Orangeville, Ontario, hotel where the series was recorded..

He was informed that the crew would be shooting a pilot for an upcoming series called Schitts Creek; Tipping has consequently rented his motel out to the cast and crew for a month each year for the last six years. Fans of the show, which aired its final episode in April, frequently show up to the motel from as far away as Australia just to snap photos or ask about the series, which Tipping discovers amusing.
