We are Barbara "Bran" and Kevin Buza, innkeepers and professionals. Bran is an RN and an artist. Kevin is a CPA with an office on site. We have lived in Ellsworth for about 17 years.
Our story starts with a vision
Many years ago Bran had a vision to provide a place for artists to create and display their work without the need to rent display space. "Struggling artist" is a well known concept and Bran wants to make it easier for other artists to get noticed. While The Sanctuary Inn and Art Gallery may only be an initial step toward that goal, it is a step.
We provide lodging near Acadia National Park, close to downtown Ellsworth, Maine. Our inn provides comfy rooms at a competitive rate with breakfast included.
We provide opportunities for artists to display their works in our hallways, and perhaps eventually in guest rooms too. Although we reserve the right to accept or reject any particular work for display, for any reason, we happily call on area artists to take advantage of this opportunity to display their work.
Although we have significantly upgrade the facility, there is still much more to come. We have substantially completed our interior renovations of of second floor. It may be another year before we can start the exterior upgrades. We will do everything we can to minimize the impact of our continuing renovations and maintenance on your stay and invite you to provide feedback while you are with us.
