Dust off your L.L. Bean gear and lobster cracker, your future is waiting in Maine.


Straight out of Stephen King. (via TripAdvisor)

If you've ever dreamed of owning a historic bed and breakfast in Maine, that's an oddly specific dream. But good news! Now's your chance to fulfill it, as long as you have $125, a postage stamp, and a gift for words.

Janice Sage, the owner and innkeeper of the Center Lovell Inn and Restaurant, wants to retire. Rather than sell the inn traditionally, however, she is holding an essay contest to find the person who will treat the old place right. She is charging $125 per entry, and hopes to attract at least 7,500 contestants, netting her the $900,000 estimated value of the property.
