Bear Mountain Inn, Maine

Total renovation of an historic inn in the lakes district of Maine. The Bear Mountain Inn is located in Waterford, Maine on the edge of a beautiful lake and hundreds of acres of forest and trails. The new owners, Julie and Brian Sullivan, wanted to update the inn and surrounding spaces to give it a more cleaning, chic, cozy space with character. This renovation project — a combination of simple decorative changes to some structural changes and additions is now approachable, hip, and a relaxing place for today’s modern traveler while still keeping the charm of the country inn. With Maine and the natural beauty of the surrounding area at its central theme, this clean/minimalist unique lodging experience will accommodate families, couples, friends, and the younger crowd alike.

To start the “refresh” changes, Joanne created a concept that would not only change the design, but also speak to the branding of Basin Harbor Club while understanding the needs of the guests, facility managers and housekeepers. Goals: the fixtures, wall coverings and furnishings speak to the history and depth of character of the Club, while feeling comfortableand clean. Updated lighting and structural elements create a safe environment that flows from space to space, cottage to cottage, room to room, while allowing for individuality of each space.

From the inception of the project, Joanne was extensively involved, managing every aspect of the design. We are astounded by the results Joanne has produced. Since we had seen pictures of her previous work, we expected we would be happy, but she has far surpassed our expectations. In the weeks we have been open following renovation, we are averaging 15-20 tours a week. People who have heard about the renovation are stopping in to tour the property and to view the renovations for themselves. Our pub and restaurant business has exploded – growing far faster than our plans had projected – and we are rapidly growing our Inn customer base. Our existing guests have been our largest supporters, noting that we hit the perfect balance between retention and modernization.

From a financial perspective, Joanne also exceeded our expectations. Not only did she complete the project under budget, but she also passed along her designer discount on purchases, thus saving us substantially on the cost of materials.

Simple, yet interesting design ideas make this small and narrow space work well.  The ice cream scoop wall vinyl was custom made by Joanne Palmisano and Susan Teare, using vintage ice cream scoops and the shop's own ice cream. Local wood, painted in shades of white, black and natural tones, and the extra large "old school" floor vinyl tiles add some fun. Metal stools and a narrow table made from reclaimed wood are just enough space for customers to enjoy their cones, while allowing others to order up at the counter.

Affordable solutions were created when it came to designing the spaces. In this lobby, the counter was made with vintage doors, and a chicken coop serves as shelving. A ladder for magazines and "take and leave" bookshelves are a huge hit.  All budget-friendly accommodation design ideas that made for fun, interesting and unique spaces that the guests love.

With moderate changes to the cottages, they look fresh and inviting––perfect for today's traveler.  Keeping the design inline with the property’s architecture, history and its surroundings, Joanne Palmisano is designing spaces that the guests will enjoy for years to come. Updated paint colors, frames, oars, tennis rackets and vintage trunks, all found on the resort’s numerous attics, have been incorporated into the spaces to bring some unique design as well as a nod to the property’s history.
