Scott Markwood moved to Maine permanently in 2015 where he presently owns and operates a small Inn in Prospect Harbor. As a child, Scott’s family moved all over the world but returned to their summer home in Maine each year. That land was originally associated with a family farm which dated back to the late 1700’s. As an adult, Scott settled in Northern New Jersey and raised his own family there, bringing them back to Maine each summer. After a career in energy efficiency and renewable energy, he is now semi-retired and migrates back and forth with the seasons between the inn and his family’s 100 year old cottage in Trenton, Maine. Says Scott, “I guess I will always be considered a summer person!”
As a summer person, and now a permanent resident, Scott is particularly sensitive to the needs of people seeking B&Bs, small inns, vacation homes or planning on moving into the area themselves. Also, Scott’s background in the energy field helps him to understand construction and systems. Scott designed and managed programs to drive more efficient new-construction, increase energy efficiency in existing homes and businesses and, even a program which focused on the special needs of homes on the historic register.
Scott presently volunteers with the Schoodic Area Chamber of Commerce, the Downeast and Acadia Regional Tourism Board and is on the Winter Harbor Lobster Festival Committee.
