BAR HARBOR — A Maine hotel owner is adding to his property list in Bar Harbor.

David Witham, who bought four other local lodging properties in 2008 and 2009, recently became the owner of the Rockhurst Motel. Earlier this year, he bought the Villager Motel.

The Bangor Daily News reports Witham’s acquisition of the Rockhurst Motel follows the recent purchase of the adjacent Ledgelawn Inn by rival Thomas Walsh of Ocean Properties Ltd.

Witham now has ownership stakes in nine lodging properties in Bar Harbor and a total of 13 in Hancock County.
