Freeport, Maine...Did You Know?

While we all know that L.L. Bean and the outlets have long been anchors for Freeport, the village has evolved into so much more!

Did you know....
There are concerts in the park all summer?
There's an annual winter festival in the park sponsored by LLBean?
There are 2 state parks nearby?
You can go fishing from Winslow Park?
There are 3 new breweries coming to town?
There are already 2 breweries in town?
You can canoe and kayak?
You can take a scenic nature cruise or sailing trip from town?
Pineland Farms is only 10 miles away?
Portland is only 20 minutes away? (and can often be more expensive than Freeport)
There are a number of new small, specialty shops in town?
Bow Street Market (a wonderful small specialty market) in town offers items farmed, fished and made by locals all over Maine?

I haven't even mentioned the booming food scene which has reached Freeport too (not just Portland)!

See why we say Freeport is so much more than shopping?

James Place Inn is situated in a lovely residential neighborhood, just a side street off Main Street. Close enough to walk everywhere, but removed enough to enjoy the quiet. And with sidewalks up and down the entire length of Main Street, it makes walking around a pleasure. And the inn is just 3 miles to the waterfront.

With 7 rooms and a gorgeous 3 bedroom owner's house, this beautifully maintained inn checks off a lot of boxes for buyers. Check out the property offering below and contact me with any questions!

The Limerock Inn is motivated to sell?

Yes, the Limerock Inn is motivated to sell….

Why, you ask? What’s wrong? Why are they anxious to get out? These are common questions from prospective buyers when they hear a seller is motivated. But in this case, there’s no negative reason. The owners Frank and PJ are 13 years in. That’s a pretty good stretch. And they’re definitely too young to retire. So they started thinking about what they’d do in the next phase of their lives. For Frank, an opportunity to get back into business lending fell into his lap. Too ideal to pass up, he accepted the position in 2017. Because Frank’s job requires some travel, that often leaves PJ to run the inn solo which can be pretty difficult when it’s busy, even as good as PJ is. So are they motivated to sell? Yes! It’s not really possible to fully devote yourself to two jobs and do them both really, really well. And Frank and PJ don’t want to offer anything less than 100%. 

So it’s time to hand over this grand Victorian inn to new stewards sooner rather than later. Check out this gorgeous painted lady Victorian. It checks off a lot of boxes.
