Dream Job Alert: This Gorgeous Farmhouse-Style Inn on the Coast of Maine is Looking For a New Keeper
Prepare to fall inn love.
An overnight stay at the Inn at Sunrise Point goes something like this: Watch the sunrise in an ocean-facing Adirondack chair; sip coffee in a sunlit conservatory; swing on a seaside hammock on a brisk Maine afternoon; clink wine glasses from your private terrace while watching sailboats drift by in the fading evening light.
It’s the kind of heavenly existence that makes you wish your length of stay was forever. And if you happen to have some extra cash, it just might be.
The 12-room boutique B&B, perched on 5 acres overlooking Penobscot Bay near Camden, just hit the market for a grand total of $3.9 million.

The property includes a main building, which houses three guest rooms in addition to a cozy library, dining room, and window-wrapped conservatory, a garden house with four lofts and suites, five stand-alone guest cottages, and a separate innkeeper’s residence.
Most rooms are situated to take full advantage of the inn’s bayfront location and are outfitted with hardwood floors, nautical-inspired décor, wood-burning fireplaces, and private terraces.
Outside, the inn’s five acres boast meticulously manicured lawns and gardens peppered with pairs of water-facing Adirondack chairs. And if you get the urge to dip your toes in the icy saltwater, a private staircase leads down to the Bay’s rocky shoreline.
If the property’s nautical flavor and serene seaside setting haven’t sold you yet, consider the Inn’s solid rep and band of loyal followers that frequent it for vacations. While you might be shelling out a hefty sum, you’re also bound to get some pretty steady cash flow in return.
Sounds like an obvious win-win to us.
(And PS: If the Inn at Sunrise Point is slightly outside your budget, head south to Kennebunkport, where the Edgewater Inn, a 12-room retreat with equally as peaceful water views, is also up for grabs for a mere $1,950,000.)
