About Lakeview Inn - a bed and breakfast in Maine
Originally built in 1906 as a four-story boarding house for young ladies that worked at the lakefront resorts next door, the building was converted to a bed & breakfast in the 1980’s and began operating as the Inn at Long Lake. The inn was well known in the lakes region and operated as a year-round lodging facility for almost 25 years, changing ownership/innkeepers several times before closing its doors in 2013.
The empty old inn was purchased in the spring of 2014 and extensive renovations began on the 16 guestrooms and baths. Frozen pipes were repaired, layers of wallpaper were removed and everything received several coats of paint. To our delight, when the carpets were lifted we found the original wood floors that were sanded, polished and returned to their natural beauty.
New furniture, plush mattresses, linens, and window treatments were purchased for the guestrooms as well as dining and social areas. A convenience center with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and beverages was added on the 3rd floor, available to guests 24 hours a day. All this was completed in 3 month’s time and the B&B opened in July 2014 as the Lakeview Inn.
Renovations have continued during the last two winters. A new exterior was installed in the spring of 2015 and a new kitchen was finished for the 2016 season. Work in the flower gardens is on-going and the results of labor are beginning to show. Lakeview Inn still has the classic sag that only large, old buildings uphold the right to have, but it’s been brought back to life with fresh paint, new furnishings and beautiful flowers in the gardens.
Check-in to one of 16 newly renovated guestrooms, complete with private baths, air conditioning, flat-screen TV’s and WIFI. Relax in our great room with the original huge stone fireplace or on our expansive covered porch overlooking the activities on Long Lake and the beautiful new causeway. Take a short walk to a variety of restaurants and shops located in the village or grab a towel to take a dip in our clear lakes. At the end of your busy day, retire to a comfortable clean guest room for a good night’s sleep on a plush new mattress.
Awaken to the aroma of locally roasted Wicked Joe’s coffee and fresh baked breads. Join us for a full hearty homemade breakfast before heading out to explore the Sebago Lake region for the day. Activities abound steps from our door - walking, boating, kayaking, skiing, swimming, fishing – bring your own or rent right at the causeway. Take a seaplane or riverboat ride to see the colorful fall foliage. Just want to relax? Grab a book (there’s a supply in our library) and claim the hammock in the gardens for the afternoon. Be sure to ask your innkeepers, Mike & Patty, about their favorite hiking trails and day trips that include Portland, Mount Washington and Monhegan Island.
