Looking to make a big change in your life, but you don't want to leave Maine?  This could be just the thing for you!

According to Apartment Therapy, the owners of The Harbor Watch Inn on Swans Island are looking to get out of the hospitality business.  And, like something out of a Hallmark Channel movie, they plan to give the inn away to the person who writes the best essay.

Swans Island, located just south of Mount Desert Island, has a population of just over 300.  The island contains a half dozen historical homes, a lighthouse, and a lot of wildlife.

To enter the "Win Our Inn" contest, you have to submit a 350 word essay explaining why you are the best choice to run the inn by March 31st.  You also need to be at least 18 years old. The essays will be judged on “subject matter, storytelling impact, composition and creativity of each entry”.

The winner will be announced on May 1st.
