Middle Street Inn
888 Middle Street
When did you begin the enterprise?
This is a new venture for us. Our search began in 2015 and we purchased the property in Bath in 2016. Soon after, we worked with our agent and hired a contractor. We began renovations in early 2017 and opened in September.
We have been thinking of owning an inn for several years. We knew we wanted to change our careers and we wanted to have a business that people can enjoy and leave with a great memory.
What do you offer?
Comfortable accommodations in an historic home that have been updated for today’s guest. The décor is upscale but not pretentious; The inn features a complementary blend of old and new, so all guests feel comfortable. All our rooms have new or updated private en suite bathrooms and individual climate control.
Why do you love Bath?
We chose Bath after looking at other towns along the Maine coast. Bath has a lot going for it and is a town that is attractive and livable. It’s location on the coast is great. And the people are so nice!
What might surprise someone about you or your business?
We are getting great reviews and compliments. Many people are surprised to learn that it is our first venture into owning an inn. We are also getting asked if we hired an interior designer for the inn which makes us feel great because we did the designing ourselves.
What are you excited about in the coming year?
This will be our first full summer season. We are looking forward to meeting more people and we would like to get more involved with the community.
In conjunction with a new initiative, we’re also asking: What favorite local non-profits do you support?
One of our first connections is Main Street Bath and we plan to support other local non-profits both through the business and personal interests.
