This gracious farmhouse on sprawling grounds provides comfortable, friendly accommodations and exceptional dining to visitors as did the original inn in days of yesteryear. Built in 1834, the Inn provided lodging for stage and steamship passengers. Your hosts, Peter and Annelise Krinsky, provide gracious and friendly innkeeping and superb, contemporary dining in a spectacular waterfront setting.
The Inn is strategically located to take advantage of all this beautiful area has to offer. The Blue Hill/Deer Isle Peninsula, Acadia National Park, the Schoodic Peninsula and points further Downeast. Visit the many artists' galleries and antique shops in Blue Hill and Deer Isle. Or hike on Isle au Haut, one of the beautiful islands that dot the coast, by hopping the mail boat from Stonington just 40 minutes away. We're close enough to Acadia National Park for easy access yet far enough from the crowds to relax at night"
Spend a day just relaxing on our premises. The expansive grounds have shore walks and a beach with the warmest saltwater bathing in the area. Relax on the beach, read on the lawn, or go for a spin in the rowboat or canoe. You can put-in kayaks from our beach to paddle on quiet Contention Cove or venture further out to explore pristine Patten Bay. Later in the day, enjoy cocktails on the lawn or from the 60 foot glassed-in porch overlooking the Cove.
