Although the exact date that the property that is known today as the 1794 Watchtide by the Sea Bed and Breakfast was built remains unknown, it is documented that the Ownership of the property was transferred to Brigadier General Henry Knox (of Fort Knox fame) in 1794. History buffs will remember that the general was a trusted ally to George Washington and was the first Secretary of War for the new United States. At some point in time, General Knox sold the property after which it changed hands many more times.
In 1917 the property owner's daughter Frances and three roommates from Wellesley College opened a teahouse at the property. They initially named it the College Teahouse but it later evolved into the College Club B&B. It flourished as one of the most popular stopping-off places on the Maine coast until after the beginning of World War II when the United States restricted travel. When that happened, the Bed and Breakfast had to close its doors and it became a private home once again.
In 1994, Linn Nellis and her husband Jack Elliott purchased the property and converted it into a bed and breakfast, naming it appropriately the Watchtide by the Sea. Then in 2006, the retiring couple sold the Bed and Breakfast to Patricia and Frank Kulla, who currently are the owner and operators of this historical inn.
