New Website for Captain Lindsey House Inn

New Captain Lindsey House Inn websiteNew Nautical Style & Fine Art Gallery

The Captain Lindsey House Inn is brandishing a new nautical style and I was asked to redesign their website to reflect the new owner’s taste and vision.

In 1835, Captain George Lindsey decided to turn his newly built Federal brick building on Main Street in Rockland into an inn and tavern. This inn, The Lindsey House, lasted until 1924 when the Camden/Rockland Water Company bought it and, after an extensive renovation, turned it into their labs and offices. During this renovation, the front door was moved from Main Street to Lindsey Street, the top floor was removed and a flat roof installed, and a small portion of the property facing Main Street was sold.

Three months ago, after 19 years as owners and innkeepers, they sold the inn to friend and respected entrepreneur, Kim Swan to the delight of all involved. The Inn has received refurbishing and a new nautical look. Kim has made the inn sparkle in navy blue and white.  Also new is the addition of fine art work exhibited in the inn’s common areas provided by Gleason Fine Art. Maine artists are highlighted and their work is available for guests’ enjoyment and as potential acquisitions for their personal art collections. Gleason Fine Art, based in Boothbay Harbor, is delighted to have a Rockland home at the Captain Lindsey House Inn.

The furnishings may be new but the Captain Lindsey House Inn’s superb hospitality and attention to detail remain intact.  It was a pleasure to help Captain Ken and Ellen Barnes to promote their inn for the last five years.  Kim Swan has been a dream to work with.  I look forward to continuing to help her and the inn’s staff to invite visitors to make Captain Lindsey House their get away destination.
