Featured in Maine Biz, "Buyer of Kennebunk B&B brings previous hospitality experience"

By Laurie Schreiber

The buyer of an inn in Kennebunk’s Lower Village neighborhood brings previous experience from properties she’s owned in Portland, East Boothbay and York Beach.

Diane Pace, with her brother Jack Pace and Jack’s wife Jane, bought the Inn at English Meadows, at 141 Port Road, from Elizabeth Arruda for an undisclosed price.  

Dana Moos and Diane Pace of Swan Agency brokered the transaction.

“It’s a stunning historic farmhouse that’s been very well-maintained,” said Pace.

The inn is a former Greek Revival style home built by local farmer Asa English circa 1860, according to the inn’s website. The home was one of the first in the area to incorporate indoor plumbing. 

The English family began a dairy business after the Civil War, keeping the cattle in the attached barn and renting rooms in the main house. Later, the barn became a carriage house, which was eventually divided into seven guest rooms. 

The hayloft inside the old barn became the second floor of the inn and the uppermost part was converted into a large suite that spans the entire third level and is now called the Carriage House Suite.
