Phipps header1

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




Ocracoke Island NC bed and breakfast for sale

July 18th, 2016 by Peter Scherman


The Cove is a very attractive, well maintained 7 guest room Ocracoke NC bed and breakfast for sale. Originally constructed as a duplex, the building has been opened up and added on to, creating a comfortable living room, porch with dining tables, two half baths, as well as operational kitchen, office, and laundry.

The Cove B&B offers a great combination of features that are desirable to travelers. The guest rooms are spacious and the baths are almost all larger than average. All guest rooms have a private balcony or screened porch. The Cove has water views, despite the fact that in Ocracoke, everyone has to drive to the magnificent, wide open (and sparsely populated) beach. To help the guests enjoy the island, the B&B offers bikes, beach chairs and towels. There is a small beach walking distance at Springer’s Point, a 120 acre nature conservancy.

The adjacent cottage for owners or managers on its own lot has two bedrooms, a full bath, full kitchen, living room, laundry, and a delightful screened porch in front. There is also a spacious deck toward the back. A vacant lot, available for purchase separately, is on the other side of the inn’s main building. It serves to protect the view shed as well as affording possible expansion potential.

The Outer Banks of North Carolina have long been a vacation land enjoyed by people from around the country. While the northern sections of the barrier islands have been the most developed and populated, the farther south one goes the more natural the environment becomes with less traffic and fewer people. Ocracoke is a separate island accessed by a relaxing one hour ferry ride (free and operated by the state). This relative isolation is what draws many to Ocracoke. Because it is smaller, simpler, less built up, and has mostly home-grown businesses, it is a throwback to an earlier time that many people really enjoy in our hectic world.

As a wonderful Ocracoke Island NC bed and breakfast for sale, The Cove enjoys a great location with water views, a quiet street and neighborhood away from the bustle of downtown, yet it is very close and convenient to the shops and restaurants that complement a stay in this quaint village.

The bed and breakfast and the owner’s cottage are being offered for the very reasonable price of $795,000. Find additional info at the inn’s website. The Cove is represented exclusively by The B&B Team, Inc. Please contact Peter Scherman, 434-286-4600 for details.

Outer Banks Inn For Sale

May 5th, 2015 by Peter Scherman


There are places that just make you feel special. Some make you feel VERY special. The White Doe Inn is a superb example of an Outer Banks inn for sale that exudes superlatives. Not only is White Doe a member of Select Registry®, but it is also a member of the Diamond Collection®. Every year since 2011 White Doe Inn has received Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence.

With nine guest rooms, all with sumptuous private baths, many with private balconies or garden patios, and all with more than a hint of romance, this bed & breakfast offers its guests a superior experience in the quaint town of Manteo on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The inn offers a range of packages that vary with the seasons or the reasons, and a comforting massage is never far away. Downtown Manteo (Dare County seat) with restaurants, shopping, and more is just a lazy stroll down the street.

The Outer Banks of North Carolina have been a popular summer destination for over a century. The barrier islands have traditionally been the focus of tourism, while Roanoke Island and Manteo were reserved more for commerce, including commercial fishing. In recent years, however, the commercial fishing has been replaced by a recreational boating marina, Festival Park, and an assortment of shops, art galleries, and restaurants, making it a wonderful alternative to the beach. Roanoke Island is also home to the North Carolina Aquarium and the Elizabethan Gardens, both important tourist attractions.

In addition to the activities on Roanoke Island, Manteo is well positioned for guests to enjoy the beaches of the barrier island, whether in popular places like Nags Head or the wonderful natural beauty of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore where untouched beach stretches for miles.

While the area has a history of being a summer destination, people have learned that the Outer Banks is a delightful place to visit in all seasons. In short, the location of White Doe Inn is highly marketable.

One of the exceptional features of this Outer Banks inn for sale is the owner’s private 1,900 SF residence with 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths constructed in 2008 that is steps from the back door of the B&B. With that kind of privacy and convenience, who wouldn’t want to own the White Doe Inn?

The inn is offered exclusively by The B&B Team, Inc. for $1,625,000. For details, email Peter Scherman or call 434-286-4600.

Harborlight Guest House is a six guest room coastal Carolina B and B for sale located in Cape Carteret, NC. The inn of over 7,000 square feet on 1.24 acres is wrapped by 510 feet of Bogue Sound waterfront immediately across the Intracoastal Waterway from Emerald Isle, NC.
