Sandcastle Hotel is put up for sale

There are reports on the leading travel website www.twcrossroads.com that ‘The six-room Sandcastle Hotel, home of the legendary Soggy Dollar Bar and birthplace of the lethal rum-based concoction known as the Painkiller, is up for sale with a starting bid of $3 million.’ It is suggested that prospective buyers “will be carefully evaluated”. In accordance with this the buyers must ‘agree to preserve and protect the hotel’s natural setting and personality.’

According to Gaye Myers of Travel Weekly the ‘four-square-mile island, with 211 residents, got electricity and phone service only within the last 10 years. Guests arrive at Sandcastle by boat; drop anchor in White Bay and wade ashore as there is no dock. How do you think the Soggy Dollar Bar got its name?’
