Approachable Luxury

Inn by the Sea was designed as a four season coastal destination, with approachable luxury as the design ethos.

Development was started in 2007/2008 as a multi-year, multi-phase project. The Olympia Company's efforts on this project focused on the repositioning of a successful but tired traditional resort hotel into a world class, award-winning resort hotel, focused on sustainability.


Significant entitlement hurdles were encountered when working with community and town to continue to protect shoreland & wetland areas, while maximizing revenue potential for the hotel.

While it would have been easier to raze the building, the Team instead elected to retain authenticity of the coastal architecture that lent Inn by the Sea its unique charm, while modernizing and updating every aspect of the interior.

Development & Sustainability


An aggressive schedule was set in place for commencement in October and completion in June that included much winter work. Space was expanded from 37,610 to 51,465 square feet, an increase of nearly 15,000 at a cost of $13 million. The addition was made to match existing architecture.

The project was completed on time and on budget.
