It Looks Like An Ordinary Inn, But Why Is She So Eager To Get Rid Of It? WHOA…

My ideal getaway is pretty simple: I just like hopping in the car and driving a couple hours to a nice inn or bed and breakfast.

Once there, I turn off my cell phone and just relax and enjoy nature.

I’ve seen very interesting bed and breakfasts and inns, too. I’ve seen cabooses converted into luxurious hotel rooms, floating cable car bed and breakfasts, and an inn shaped like a giant dog!

Even though they’re all unique, they can’t make up for the simplicity of an old-fashioned inn — like the Center Lovell Inn in Maine.

If you’re someone else who loves visiting inns, maybe you’ve also thought about owning your own.

If so, this is your chance!

And you don’t even have to take out a loan or mortgage your house to do so. You just need $125, a pen, and a way with words.

Please SHARE this amazing secret. Maybe someone you know will be the new innkeeper!

Innkeeper Janice Sage is retiring. Rather than sell it traditionally, she's holding an essay contest. Enter for only $125 and write a 200-word essay, and the inn could be yours!

The essay needs to be in English and be on the subject of why you are the right caretaker for the inn. All entries must be in by May 17th.

By charging $125 per contest entry, she hopes to attract at least 7,500 contestants so she can net the estimated $900,000 that the property is valued at.

The inn features 10 guest rooms and a 40-seat dining room.

If it seems like a crazy way to own an inn, Janice would disagree — because that's how she took ownership of the inn.

Janice won the inn in 1993. She paid $100 for the entrance fee and her essay won her ownership of the entire place!
