-Original cottages built circa 1915 (closest we can find through research), some were moved 1950 to another location and then moved to this site in 1975; the motel and main building were built in 1971 with a second story added in 1972. At some point during the 1990s, the owner at the time moved the individual cabins onto shared foundations with a common roof, and at the same time added the two story picture window addition. In May 2017, the current owners finished the 6 cabins that were unfinished at the time they purchased, and turned them into 4 beautifully designed cabins.

This boutique motel in Wiscasset, Maine has owner’s quarters located upstairs in the main lodge and offers a spacious 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment with huge open living and dining room with wood burning fireplace and a brand new kitchen in 2016. There’s a lovely sitting room where the two story windows are in the front. A bit reminiscent of a treehouse perched high up. It’s a magical place to watch the snowfall while curled up with a book, relaxing in the off season!

Located just 2 1/2 hours from Boston, 45 minutes from Portland, 30 minutes from Boothbay Harbor, 30 minutes from Popham Beach State Park, 50 minutes from Camden, and just over 2 1/2 hours form Bar Harbor, The Lodge makes a great home base for exploring.

This is a very well maintained property and very strong, financially viable business. This boutique motel in Wiscasset, Maine is currently a seasonal operation, May-October, but could remain open year round. Wonderful TripAdvisor reviews.  Financials provided with signed non-disclosure agreement to qualified buyers.

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.

Chalet Moosehead Lakefront Motel for Sale

June 3rd, 2017 by Janet Wolf

The Chalet Moosehead Lakefront Motel for sale is a 26 guest unit motel on 2.13 acres. The acreage includes several hundred feet of frontage on Moosehead Lake. The motel units are in two buildings, total of 9,180 sf. There is a spacious 2,120 sf owner’s house built in 1890s, a lovely Victorian. On the side of the house is the reception area and office conveniently located off the parking lots. The property also includes a 1,170 sf garage and a storage building.

Location is key and the Chalet Moosehead Lakefront Motel for sale has a prime spot! Just up the street from the heart of the town of Greenville and just a short stroll down to the iconic steamboat Katahdin, shops and restaurants.

A sense of community is one of the main reasons people live in a small town and Greenville, population just under 1500, is an exceptional Maine small town community. The town is on the edge of Maine’s North Woods, a place for tourists and residents who love peace, quiet and year round outdoor adventure. The business is currently open May through October, but could be operated year round (and was by the current owners for many years). Winter activities on the lake could certainly keep new innkeepers busy year round.

Tourists come to Moosehead Lake from America’s major cities in the Northeast and nearby Quebec City (just over a three-hour drive), but also from places like Germany, Switzerland, and Japan. The beauty of the lake is something to behold and experience.

“…despite how hard it is sometimes to believe that places as beautiful as Moosehead Lake exist, from anywhere in Maine, this place is at most just a few hours away.” Sophie Nelson, Maine Home & Design Magazine.

The guest units include balcony and standard rooms at Chalet Moosehead. They are all spacious, light and neutral in color, with windows and/or sliding glass doors in front and back. Those without balconies still have a view, and all can sit on the waterfront in Adirondack chairs for hours and hours! There are grills and an outdoor fireplace for guests to enjoy.

Guests can boat and hook up to a slip or snowmobile right up to the property (and there’s plenty of space to park the sleds and trailers). Or how about being dropped off by seaplane?!  Chalet Moosehead offers paddleboats, canoes and kayaks to guests to enjoy the lake.

The Chalet Moosehead Lakefront Motel for sale is a financially viable property with strong numbers. A strong business with the bonus of a separate owner’s house offering privacy for innkeepers, a much appreciated amenity.
