WASHINGTON — The historic Kent Manor Inn, built in 1820, will be sold in a sealed-bid auction as part of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The Kent Island property is being sold by Century 21 Millennium, and has a list price of $6 million. Bids are due by Oct. 31.
The Kent Manor Inn, a popular venue for weddings and other events, includes more than 226 acres and shorelines along the Thompson and Cox creeks.
“The property has been a popular escape for nearly two centuries. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind parcel that has development potential as well,” said Lori Willis, the co-listing agent with Century 21 Millennium.
The property’s sale will not affect any currently-booked events at the resort.
“The seller will only entertain offers that commit to existing contracts,” said Stephen Karbelk, of Realty Markets, which is managing the sale.
Kent Manor Inn, which hosts weddings, family reunions, yoga retreats, corporate meetings and other events year round, includes luxury accommodations, water views, an outdoor pool, two banquet spaces for up to 450 people and a dock.
The sale includes the ongoing business assets and its branding.
The property is also approved for new development, including up to 600 single-family homes.
