Monhegan House- A Maine island inn for Sale

July 28th, 2017 by Janet Wolf

On an island off the coast of Maine is a hotel that speaks the language of the island. Unhurried pace, simple unfettered charm and friendly relaxed ambience. From a recent guest review:

“A place where the simple island life is made memorable.”

The Monhegan House started its’ island life as a simple cape house built in the 1840s. In the early 1870’s, the owners became the first on the island to offer lodging and meals to seasonal visitors. As artists and others began flocking to the island, several renovations and expansions were completed to meet growing demand. Thus starting a long tradition of island hospitality.

Additional renovations throughout the 20th and 21st centuries now provide for 28 guest rooms and a sixty-seat dining capacity restaurant. The restaurant serves breakfast and dinner to guest of the inn, and is a favorite of the general public as well. The spacious commercial kitchen is located just off the dining room and is geared to serve appropriately.

Guests enter the welcoming reception lobby with two inviting comfortable seating areas. A mantle of smooth beach rock surrounds a propane-fired stove. A separate meeting/gathering room offers guests a quiet space to join together for small meetings or for a game of cards or chat with fellow guests with a cup of tea.

On the ground floor there are two suites with private baths and a shared deck. The remaining rooms on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors utilize shared bath/shower/toilet/sink facilities that have been recently renovated and are exceptionally clean and maintained throughout the day for guest’s comfort. All rooms offer ocean or lighthouse and meadow views.

There are accessory buildings that include the owner’s cottage, buildings for staff and a workshop. In addition the hotel includes ‘The Novelty’, a popular spot open to the public throughout the day and evening that offers delicious pizzas, fresh sandwiches and salads as well as an extensive selection of wine and beer…and let’s not forget the ice cream!

Monhegan Island is special in so many ways that draws overnight guests, seasonal residents and scores of day visitors back year after year and decade upon decades…

  • The 10-mile ferry ride is part of the total experience! Ride the classic vintage wooden mail boat Laura B or passenger ferry Elizabeth Ann from the mainland at Port Clyde, or a cruise boat that departs seasonally from both New Harbor and Boothbay Harbor.
  • A coastal village with no cars!… just a few resident’s work trucks.
  • No paved roads… just narrow lanes and footpaths.
  • Fishing and lobstering families still live and work by the tide clock.
  • ¾ of the island’s 700 acres is protected in its pristine state by Monhegan Associates, a land trust formed in 1954.
  • Beyond the village the geography of meadows, marches and spruce and pine groves with 17 miles of trails draws birders, photographers, artists and trekkers seeking solitude and breathtaking views.
  • The cliff walk takes you to a headland 160 feet above the Atlantic.
  • The island’s special light and picturesque buildings and grand headlands has inspired generations of painters including 3 generations of the Wyeth family.

But one MUST go there to really experience the magic of this place. The Monhegan House welcomes you.

The B&B Team is pleased to offer this coastal Maine summer hotel that embodies the beauty and charm of a unique place, Monhegan Island.

The Monhegan House has continued to maintain and replace systems and renovate over the years, refreshing the rooms and suites while maintaining an eye for true coastal Maine lodging and dining experience.

From a technical perspective, a new septic system was installed in 2015. An extensive list of repairs and renovations is available.

Embrace the Monhegan experience. The Monhegan House is offered for sale for $1,695,000.

All 9 accommodations include either kitchenettes or full kitchens, equipped with mini frig, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker. Many of the rooms have fireplaces and the Honeymoon Suite has a two person whirlpool tub. Eight of the rooms  feature private patios, decks or balconies.

The property features beautifully landscaped  gardens with a walking path and water feature. A fire pit and gas grill are located on a good sized lawn area where families and couples enjoy lawn games or just relaxing.

The Berkshires are a four season destination where visitors want to be out and about. Visitors love the warm days and moderate evenings in the summer and early fall. One reason why  the Boston Symphony  Orchestra made Tanglewood and the Berkshires their summer home! Tanglewood’s entrance is minutes away from the Inn. The close proximity to all the attractions in Lenox, Lee, and greater Stockbridge is a major plus.

In the winter months the Inn’s comfortable rooms are perfect to retreat too after enjoying Butternut, Catamount and Jiminy Peak Mountains for snowboarding, tubing, cross country skiing and moderate downhill ski trails.  The ‘average’ room is over 500 square feet, offering beds, sitting areas and abundant space to stretch out and enjoy your getaway!

The small historic village of West Stockbridge has some wonderful qualities. Great little places to dine and explore. How about the oldest family owned hardware store in the Berkshires, or an art gallery coffee shop owned by a renowned National Geographic photographer. The nearby Shaker Mill Tavern is perfect to walk to for a casual meal. In addition there are other village dining options plus an eclectic mix of galleries and shops. The small town qualities of West Stockbridge offer innkeepers a wonderful lifestyle.  A great town to own and grow a business in.

Guests staying at the Shaker Mill Inn enjoy their breakfast in the privacy of their rooms. The rooms are stocked with breakfast items. Baskets with baked goods, fresh fruit, quiches and tarts. Here is what one guest review said about their breakfast experience:

“…we really enjoyed having a light breakfast in our room (quiche in the fridge and bagels/muffins in a basket). The coffee was excellent, and we got to enjoy it in our pajamas in front of the fireplace!”

Current innkeepers have developed a lodging business model that affords guests to remain private, if they choose.

  • Self check-in and check-out
  • Breakfast in the privacy of their room or outside deck or patio
  • A wealth of amenities are provided in the guest rooms plus a list of ‘extras’ available on request
  • Spacious guest rooms allow guests to ‘spread out’ and ‘cocoon’ if desired

This business model also allows innkeepers more free time. Without daily breakfast prep, serving and clean up. Yet the current innkeepers are always available and in communication with their guests. The welcoming personal touch is very evident at the Shaker Mill Inn!

A recent and valuable feature was the renovation of the Owner’s Quarters. This area includes an open floor plan, living room and large eat-in kitchen with all new equipment and expansive counters. There is the master bedroom, private deck with mountain views and master bath and laundry room. The quarters are very private affording the innkeepers a secluded retreat from the Inn.

There is a ground floor utility room that houses laundry equipment, refrigeration, sink, work counter, storage area and mechanicals. There are monitored heat, smoke, CO and cold alarms for the building as a safety feature.

The B&B Team, Inn Consultants LLC is proud to showcase this unique West Stockbridge Massachusetts bed & breakfast for sale offering in concert with Piretti Real Estate Company.
