Maine BnBs, Inns and Hotels are essential too

VisitMaine.net – Maine’s Unofficial State Web Site Since 1998

lighthouse portland head3Maine welcomes 37 million people a year. 2/3 of those visit between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Maine’s tourism contributes over $6 billion annually, more than 10% of our State’s entire economy. Tourism supports 110,000 jobs—that’s 1 in 6 JOBS in our state. These jobs, in turn, support thousands of other year-round businesses, from independant shops to the fishermen and farmers,  to web marketing companies like VisitMaine.net. Our small business as Maine’s #1 Hotel and Lodging Guide since 1998 does not exist without you!

Ever since Governor Mills’ dramatic closing of Maine to out of staters  during Covid, we have been hard at work …writing letters the Governor, Heather Johnson at DECD (heather.johnson@maine.gov), Editors, State and Local Legislators, Senators, and our advocates at Hospitality Maine and Maine Office of Tourism, . We’ve been shouting out to National and Local Media (with significant success) to bring attention to our concerns for the future of tourism in Maine and the struggles of your small businesses and the Maine Tourism economy.

We are working for you, tuning up our dynamic responsive Maine Lodging Guide to bring visitors to you now – virtually for the moment– and live and in person as soon as State and Local representative allow you to welcome your guests back.

ogunquit shopsWe trust  Small Business Owners will do all the right things to provide a safe wonderful experience to their guests, from in and out of state. Please trust us that we are fighting for your business rights, and will continue to be vocal on behalf of the Maine Tourism industry – small hospitality businesses like yours that have been overlooked, considered “not essential.”

Like you, we want to save our precious summer commerce in Maine. Please reach out to us with questions or concerns, tag us on your social media if you’d like to share your story!
