Robert Sanborn, the town’s former tourism director, combined abutters in 2008 to create the Prince Albert Guest House, with 18 rooms. No. 164 is a Second Empire-style treasure, built for Capt. Abner Rich, president of the Central Wharf. It was known briefly as Roses of Charron under Bob Charron, who sold it to Donald Vining and Arlan Doughty in 1975. Marvin Coble and Thomas Higley bought it in 1980 and renamed it Captain and His Ship, which it remained under Jim Baer, who owned the building until 2003, after which it was Officers Quarters. The Italianate-style No. 166 dates to the 1870s. Alan Wagg owned it from 1972 to 1993 and ran it as the Casablanca Guest House. Other names for Nos. 164-166 have included Atlantic Shores, Four Bays Inn, and Captains Inn. In 2015, the properties split again, with No. 166, under Stan Cottner and Josh Scaturro, rechristened the Queen Vic Guest House.
