So much history! Love the old pictures. Old Millbrook Inn, Circa 1797 in Maine. $35,900

November 6, 2021

Just imagine the stories this old inn could tell! Love the old pictures they included. There is a snow mobile trail on the property that leads to Canada. The inn was built in 1797. It is located on .26 acres in Orland, Maine. This definitely needs a ton of work and a real vision on how to best restore it. There are views of Toddy Pond from the second floor of the structure. It was originally a seven bedroom inn, then became a boarding house for lumber workers. There is a stream that runs the back of the property. 2,196 square feet. $35,900

From the Zillow listing:


The Old Millbrook Inn was built in 1797 sitting on just under one acre atop a hill overlooking the tip of eleven mile Toddy Pond in the front yard with a beautiful horseshoe chestnut tree that is over 100 years old. The view out over Toddy Pond from the second story of the house is breath-taking. A stream runs through the property that once powered several grist mills leading to a National Salmon Fish Hatchery. This seven bedroom house was originally an Inn, then it became a boarding house for lumber workers, and finally, served as the town post office in the 1980’s. It is 30’x40′, with 4 full stories, and at one time had a 60′ barn attached to it. It is truly a unique property that needs lots of tlc. The wide pine flooring has been planed and redone on one floor, all the horsehair plaster has been removed. A small 2 story addition built on a cement slab was added in the 1990’s. The house was originally built in 1797 from old ships likely at least 100 years old so the framing is like nothing most have ever seen. Clearly this property could easily get historic status. The property offers a rolling stream great for kayaking directly from your backyard and in the winter a snowmobile trail passes the property that travels all the way to Canada. Toddy Pond offers summertime fun with fishing, boating, and swimming and winter beauty for the ice fisherman. The wooded acreage behind the property and stream dance with colors in the fall. The convenient coastal location is a stone’s throw from Route 1, 30 miles from Bar Harbor and 30 miles to Bangor. Property being sold as is. New metal roof was installed on the addition in 2017. House was lifted in the 1990’s and a cement foundation was poured giving the property a full basement. Home is not structurally secure for showings at this time, due to unfinished renovations and significant structural repairs that are needed.
