From grounds maintenance, to equipment, to client service, golf course businesses have unique property needs and expectations. We have the expertise to truly understand the complexities of the golf business and provide the right solution at the right time.

Outdoor Recreation Businesses

Outdoor Recreation businesses often have very specialized real estate, and therefore need specialized expertise from their lender to match their unique business models. We can evaluate these businesses and their real estate fairly and accurately so you can get the financing they need.

Small and mid-sized franchised and independent hotels are the lifeblood of the hospitality industry in many parts of the country. Northeast Bank understands the unique challenges of these properties and can help tailor the right loan for your needs.



In today's strong hotel market, keeping up with renovations and improvements is essential to competing for customers. An SBA 7(a) loan is an especially popular way to finance a property improvement plan (PIP) or other upgrades.



Refinancing is a decision that can heavily impact your ability to complete a property improvement plan, which helps keep occupancy up and positive reviews rolling in. If you’re planning to expand or improve your hotel, or perhaps are facing yet another refinance after 3 or 5 years with a conventional loan, an SBA 7(a) loan from Northeast Bank might be the right match for you.
