As the longest continuously operating Inn in Boothbay Harbor, this is a rare opportunity to purchase an established and thriving business.  Built in 1869, the property has been hosting guests since 1925.  


The inn has been in the same family for the last 47 years and the current owners represent the third generation of innkeepers.


Recent renovations and expansions have added brand new guest rooms, baths, and an impressive 2500 square feet of modern, covered deck space for guests to gather, socialize, and savor the unobstructed water views. 

Guests enjoy the waterfront lawn with 80ft of tidal frontage and oversize hot tub. The dock and float provide direct water access for kayaking, paddle boarding, and canoeing from the property. 



The Manor House Inn is located in the West Street Historic District, one of Bar Harbor's most convenient in town locations. The inn is just a short stroll to all village shopping, restaurants and ocean front activities with Acadia National Park just 1 mile away. Manor House Inn consists of the original 3-story Victorian Mansion and the Bar Harbor Cottages: the Victorian Chauffeur's Cottage, 2 private Garden Cottages and Acadia Cottage.



Simple. Perfect. Luxury. is how the Inn at Sunrise Point has been described. This is the property for discerning guests and owners. Oceanside cottages, the main inn with graceful proportions, a garden house with new luxury rooms all on 5 +/- acres of waterfront manicured lawns, curated gardens and natural landscape create this highly desirable luxury campus.



Water Street Tavern & Inn is the entrepreneurial chef/hospitality professional’s dream come true.  This oceanside food and lodging business has a full service, turn-key restaurant with 48 seats in the dining rooms with 10 seats at the bar, and the deck overlooking the Narrows that seats 20.  Further, there are five beautiful room accommodations ranging from single guest rooms (each with private baths) to a one and a two-bedroom apartment, with unbelievable views.  


Located in Lubec -- as far East as you can get up the gorgeous Coast of Maine on a peninsula jutting into the Bay of Fundy overlooking the bridge to Canada and Campobello Island -- this seaside village is quintessential quiet Maine.  A popular destination for those looking for the real Maine, it is not overrun with tourists and the native Mainer flavor remains.  Bragging rights include being the eastern-most town with the eastern-most lighthouse on the eastern-most point of land in the Continental United States.


The ideal situation is to run the business for the season - May through October - and then head off for other adventures.  This opportunity offers a wonderful lifestyle for an enterprising individual or couple looking to start their own business or pre-retirement, living the dream between the obligatory career and permanent no-work zone.  


The sellers pursued the latter path and are now ready to pass the torch and settle into retirement.  In order to help someone get started in this new career, the owners are offering a generous second mortgage option to buyers with good credit but who are shy in the downpayment for a business of this type.
