Migis Hotel Group Acquires the Historic Higgins Beach Inn in Scarborough



(Scarborough, Maine) Migis Hotel Group welcomes the Higgins Beach Inn, a historic ocean view hotel in Scarborough, Maine, into its collection of nine exclusive boutique hotels and destination resort properties along the East Coast. The exquisitely renovated Higgins Beach Inn will reopen to guests on Memorial Day weekend 2017.

The Higgins Beach Inn, a three-story colonial revival structure whose origin dates back to 1897, is within a stone’s throw of the unspoiled, sandy Higgins Beach. Nestled between Prouts Neck and Crescent Beach State Park, the Higgins Beach Inn is ideally situated for a leisurely vacation on one of the finest beaches in Maine. Beautifully renovated by Caleb Johnson Studio and Woodhull Construction of Maine, the 23 newly designed rooms will have a modern feel with stylish furnishings. The Inn’s new eatery, Shade, will feature a re-envisioned menu of fresh, locally sourced seafood, including Maine lobster and raw oysters. Guests can enjoy a specialty cocktail or craft brew while taking in the warm ocean breezes from the newly covered deck or in the tastefully decorated dining room.

Phil Kronenthal, Director of Operations at Migis Hotel Group says, “We are delighted to bring the Higgins Beach Inn into our portfolio of properties. This unique Maine beach hotel has a rich history and deep connection with the Higgins Beach community, which makes it the perfect fit with our core mission and values. It’s with this premise of creating a sense of place that we chose Caleb Johnson Studio and Woodhull Construction to fulfill our vision of a transformative renovation that will result in a memorable experience for our guests.”

"The Higgins Beach Inn renovation is an exciting project for Caleb Johnson Studio and Woodhull Construction,” said Shannon Richards, Managing Partner of Caleb Johnson Studio. “The Migis Hotel Group is managing a beautiful revival of this historic inn, which will complement and enhance the surrounding community. We are motivated and on track to be ready for the Inn’s opening in May.”
