Few places in America are as evocative as coastal Maine. The words alone conjures images of white sea spray shooting over tall bluffs and of stoic lighthouses standing guard over rocky beaches and waves. The two Inns for sale featured here reflect coastal Maine’s classic portrait with modern comfort and style.
Though these two Inns lie about an hour apart along Maine’s coast, they are both in the region of the state known colloquially as the “mid-coast.” This area is known best for its long, finger-like peninsulas that stretch from the mainland out into the Atlantic. The region is filled with small coves, sandy beaches, and quintessential Maine scenery. Plus, the city of Portland is only a short drive away, making its indie culture and burgeoning arts scene easily accessible.
Our first Inn is about halfway between Brunswick and Rockland and right in the heart of the mid-coast Maine region. This property combines antique charm with modern comfort, and offers enough room to hold an entire summer season’s worth of guests. Sixteen rooms – 12 in the main building, three in the carriage barn, and one cottage – give you plenty of space. Most have garden views, though four offer picturesque views of the sea. Several also have fireplaces, one suite features a full kitchen (perfect for families!) and another a jacuzzi.
In addition, this coastal Maine Inn offers both a full-service restaurant and an informal tavern to guests and the public. The Inn’s expansive gardens and its proximity to the coast, including a historic lighthouse on the property, also make it ideal for Maine weddings. In short, this is a full-service Inn for an unbeatable price and in an amazing location.
An hour to the north, a classic Maine bed and breakfast overlooking the beautiful Penobscot Bay is also for sale. Originally built as a private home in 1889, the Inn exudes classic Victorian style and stately comfort. Seven guest rooms complete the Inn, each with private baths, fireplaces, wireless Internet, and unique furnishings. Several of the rooms have water views, and rooms with balconies and private entrances are also available, while every guest is welcome to enjoy the sweeping views from the inn’s wrap-around porch.
Both of these Inns draw strong seasonal business, making them perfect for owners who want to be able to travel or take occasional time off from running their business. And since both are just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic, they also offer all the advantages of seaside tourism, including fishing and lobster tours, water sports, and the freshest seafood, not to mention incredible views.
If you’ve ever dreamed of living by the ocean and waking up to the fresh scent of salty sea air, either one of these two inns could be perfect for you. Contact Inn Partners to learn more about buying an Inn and start living that dream.
