Many of us dream of owning an Inn or B&B on the Maine coast. The problem is that the coast is rife with small Inns with big prices. Here we have a real Inn that makes sense from its cash flow capability in relation to the price. Mind you; this Inn is not for sissies. If you follow the current pattern you will work very hard for six months and not so hard for two months, leaving 4 months to play.
The Inn is situated at the tip of one of the many promontories that reach into the Atlantic from Route One and comprise what we call “Down East Maine”. This one is anchored by an historic and dominating Lighthouse.
There are 16 guest rooms; 12 are in the main Inn and 2 guest rooms and 1 suite (the entire second floor) are located in the carriage barn, and 1 cottage. The main Inn has two guest rooms on the first floor and the balance on the second and third floors. There is a large great room with fireplace and several seating areas for guests to mingle.
The Inn offers fine dining and an informal tavern for their inn guests and the public. The dining room seats about 28 to 30 people with additional seats available in summer on the screened deck, plus the tavern offers flexible seating as needed. The commercial kitchen is large, well equipped and well organized.
Outside, on approximately 3 acres of perennial gardens and manicured lawns there are inviting spaces, including a gazebo, for guests to relax and enjoy views of the bay near Pemaquid Point.
For new owners of this lovely Inn there are several options for owners quarters depending on your needs, but current owners utilize part of the second floor of the main Inn for their office and living space. There is a barn with garage.
