Maine country inn going to winner of essay contest

Win an Inn

LOVELL, Maine (AP) – A woman who ran a Maine country inn for more than 20 years can retire now that she’s found a new owner through an essay contest.

Janice Sage from the Center Lovell Inn & Restaurant announced Saturday that a winner had been chosen. The winner’s name was not immediately disclosed.

Sage took ownership of the inn the same way by winning an essay contest more than two decades ago.

The three-story inn has seven guestrooms and stunning views of the White Mountains in the distance.

Sage had said she expected more than 7,500 entries, meaning she’d receive more than $900,000 at $125 per entry. She says she plans to use the money for her retirement.
