This midcoast Maine waterfront inn for sale is set on 4.44 acres on the Kennebec River. Built in the 1770’s, a glorious example of pre-revolution Georgian-style architecture. There are 8 guest rooms (6 guest rooms and a 2 room suite) with 7 baths, all located in the main house and adjoining addition built in 1870.

The Inn is well established as a prime wedding destination. The historic and spacious barn (with level floor and ceiling!) has been renovated and offers a wonderful rustic space to become beautifully transformed for events and weddings.  The spacious gently sloping lawn also offers options for tented or open-air events as well.  And the setting in front of the water is just beautiful!

As you enter the Inn you gain an immediate sense of the gracious lifestyle of times past. From the heavy front door with its bulls-eye glass panel to the wood-paneled grand staircase, the rooms retain most of the original 18th Century touches. The formal first-floor rooms and the four guest accommodations above allow guests fabulous views over the sweeping lawns and Kennebec River.

The adjoining 1870 ‘Ship’s Carpenters’ Quarters’ houses three second-floor guest accommodations and the first-floor Woodshed room with its own private verandah – perfect for romantic getaways and honeymooners.

Owner’s quarters is a 2-3 bedroom, 1 bath two-story space in the barn with open floor plan, kitchen, living room, dining room and picture windows looking out towards the water.

Location is key. Situated just 15 minutes down a quiet peninsula from Bath and just 45 minutes north of Portland, the location offers a perfect secluded spot to use as a home base to explore much of coastal Maine.  Nearby charming villages include Freeport, Brunswick, Georgetown, Boothbay, Wiscasset and Damariscotta. Kennebunkport, Camden and Rockland are just over an hour away. Popham Beach is just a short ride down the base of the peninsula and offers a beautiful spot for sun and relaxation.

This midcoast Maine waterfront inn for sale is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as the McCobb-Hill-Minott House. Many original details remain visible in this outstanding pre-revolutionary mansion. Today the main house is recognized as “an outstanding example of a pre-revolutionary mansion, exceptionally well-detailed and finely proportioned”, according to the 1962 Historical American Building Survey. Most of these original details are still evident in the general construction; window shutters and window seats; wood floors and paneling; grand open fireplaces; and the fascinating ‘witch’s door’ with its Roman and Greek crosses to ward off evil spirits!

This elegant historic midcoast Maine waterfront Inn for sale is offered at $1,350,000. Contact Dana Moos, 207-266-5604 of The B&B Team, Inc

A city of culture with many great restaurants and shops, Ashland has lots to offer a wide cross section of the population. This Ashland Oregon inn for sale is ideally situated just a couple of blocks from the Plaza, the heart of activity in Ashland.
