HARTSTONE INN & HIDEAWAY
Camden — $4,250,000
Sold - September 2021
While Hartstone Inn's restaurant has long been a staple in the restaurant scene in Maine, and with nationwide recognition, the lodging side of the business is very strong for the industry.
In 2019, the rooms side of the business represented nearly 70% of the revenue and their room occupancy is a near match at 68%.
The national occupancy for hotels in 2019 was 66%, keeping in mind this is driven a great deal by the large cities with national brand hotels. The typical small inn or B&B with 4-11 rooms sees an average occupancy around 45%.
So Hartstone Inn, Restaurant and Hideaway is well positioned in the market, with a strong lodging business and restaurant small enough to manage but busy enough to supplement the income and help fill rooms. The lodging side of the business has far greater margin than the restaurant side, making this scenario ideal for someone hesitant to take on a restaurant with such a reputation. Just small enough for intimate dining on a smaller scale, with the much greater bottom line on the rooms side. Any way you look at this business, it's strong.
The property is arranged with three unique buildings, housing 22 romantic rooms and suites and one apartment rental, along with beautiful gardens and their on-site 20 seat restaurant and bar, which is located in the Hartstone building. Every room is uniquely furnished and features original artwork, ﬁne linens, soft robes, down comforters and pillows, ﬂat screen TV's and heat pumps. Select rooms offer gas ﬁreplaces and jetted tubs for the ultimate indulgent experience, and several are also pet-friendly. Guests love being just steps away from Camden's picturesque harbor and Maine's best attractions. Guests can book a windjammer cruise for a scenic tour of lighthouses, marine wildlife and secluded islands, or head to Camden Hills State Park to enjoy miles of trails and expansive vistas of the ocean and unspoiled countryside. Kayaking on Penobscot Bay, playing a round at a world-class golf course or taking a ferry to the artist colony on Monhegan Island are favorite activities. The inn's acclaimed restaurant is open to guests and the public for dinner 5 nights a week. Breakfast is included with the room rates for guests. The property is comprised of 3 buildings: 41 Elm St, 12 Free St and 4 Pleasant St. 20 working ﬁreplaces total. Very strong, ﬁnancially viable business.
