Unique Camden Maine Boutique Lodging and Farmette
Unique, meticulously-maintained Camden Maine Boutique Lodging property is a 17 unit property, set back off of Route One on 3.5 acres, with beautiful views of Penobscot Bay. Described as a ‘vintage roadside lodge that is more agricultural bed & breakfast or European-style guest house than a typical motel, hotel or inn.’
Birchwood is a known, established brand with a solid foundation of return guests and new business. This turn-key property has spacious, private, modern owners quarters; a new, sound infrastructure; simple, smartly-appointed units; solar-thermal hot water system; nearby access to the state park; and gardens of established perennials fruits and vegetables that reliably produce for guest and owner consumption.
The first floor in the main building is guest reception with 1/2 bath, laundry and utility rooms, solar thermal system with 360+ gallons of hot water storage, radiant floor heat, pergola, stylish clothesline and brick patio; oil furnace (offset by solar thermal and second floor wood stove in winter).
The second floor houses the owners quarters with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, radiant floor heat, wood stove with stone surround, stainless appliances, granite counter, private entrance, expansive deck overlooking Penobscot Bay and bluestone back patio; third floor – vacation rental apartment with 2 bedroom, 1 bath, private entrance and bay view deck. Note: first and second floors could convert through closet wall of back bedroom into existing staircase to make one two story unit. This is fully insulated and suitable for year round living.
The cottage is a stand alone unit with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, bay view deck. This is fully insulated and suitable for year round living.
The two lodging buildings house 15 guest rooms united by a covered 200 foot long porch overlooking Penobscot Bay. All units with private entrance, private baths and modern conveniences (A/C, heat, telephone, cable). Also includes large full foundation workshop/storage space; year-round solar thermal panels. These buildings are for seasonal use only.
The property includes a new barn with a covered patio and storage area; fixtures and utilities; rough plumbing; and a top floor suitable for expansion. The barn, with electric service, roughed in plumbing, windows, skylights and wood stove chimney, offers plenty of expansion potential either as an additional rental unit, another business use, other quarters or events.
But wait there is more! A gorgeous new wood-fired sauna (suitable for up to six) with benches, thermostat, water bucket/ladle, steel stove and sauna rocks. And…a chicken coop: well-designed with nesting boxes, roost, waterers and feeder, and happy flock of dual purpose (both meat and eggs) hens. NOTE: if buyer has no interest in continuing flock, current owner will be happy to take chickens and/or coop.
Open seasonally May through October.
