"the closest you'll find to a bed on the beach"
The Seasoned Innkeepers, Bob and Carole Arena, owned and operated The Ocean View Inn on Kennebunk Beach for 21 years selling it in 2005 as a private residence. Their passion for excellence in hospitality made the inn a highly successful business.

Prior to owning their own property, Carole was the business manager of the White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine; Bob had a career in human resources.

After selling their inn, Bob and Carole worked as consultants bringing their expertise to The Cottages at Cabot Cove, a unique enclave of upscale designer cottages in Kennebunkport, Maine. Beginning as a start-up operation, Bob and Carole took on the roles of property managers and hosts. After 3 short years The Cottages have become a flagship property in Southern Maine and have been featured in seven national magazines.

Having accomplished their goal of putting The Cottages “on the map”, the Arenas have turned the property over to new innkeepers for the 2009 season.

The Seasoned Innkeepers, Bob and Carole Arena, are now back to providing full-time consulting services in the Bed and Breakfast, Country Inn, and Small Resort industries – from simple inn-sitting needs including breakfast preparations, to marketing, operational and financial expertise.

Their goal is to help clients build value and satisfaction, while offering an unparalleled view on hospitality.
