Innkeepers & carriage house
residents, Frank, Buster, PJ & Chance
Your Innkeepers, Frank Isganitis and PJ Walter, are recovering corporate refugees having traded long commutes and business meetings for a much more rewarding and “hands-on” career. Both are originally from New Jersey, but now call Maine their home!
Frank was a commercial lender having worked for 18 years for both banks and commercial finance companies. The last decade was focused on assisting small business owners realize their dreams by providing financing through the US Small Business Administration programs. Working for companies like GE Capital and CIT Group fostered his entrepreneurial spirit, and an affiliation with The Cendant Corporation and Choice Hotels introduced him to the hospitality industry.
Helping people was at the forefront of PJ’s career starting as a Case Manager, then a Supervisor, for the American Arbitration Association (AAA). This AAA provided alternate dispute resolution, and PJ spent the last decade in the personal injury group. The organization’s main purpose was to provide welcomed relief for the over-burdened judicial system.
Both Frank and PJ changed jobs in early 2004 in hopes of finding better opportunities. Neither found their new position to be what they wanted and decided a bigger change was necessary. Within a few months, they were exploring alternatives. Having been a vacation choice for many years, Maine was the logical destination. In addition, PJ received his undergraduate degree from the University of Maine, and his parents retired here and recently moved to the mid-coast region.
Frank and PJ are no strangers to hard work and wanted a career that was both challenging and rewarding. After completing a substantial renovation of their 19th century farmhouse in Central New Jersey, Frank and PJ found they really enjoyed the work. They also enjoyed entertaining and the accolades they received for a job well done. Life long friends and Frank’s family (he is the youngest of seven children) provided a constant stream of evening and overnight houseguests.
It was preparing for a large family gathering that Frank and PJ realized innkeeping was their future. It was an arduous search, but fate intervened and led them to Rockland and The LimeRock Inn. With their dream realized, they look forward to providing their guests with unparalleled service in an environment of comfortable elegance.
