Discover the serenity and warm hospitality of our inn five minutes from Acadia National Park at Schoodic. Acadia's Oceanside Meadows Inn, an historic sea captain's home c. 1860, stands on 200 acres at the head of Sand Cove in the heart of beautiful Downeast Maine. At Oceanside Meadows your hosts, Sonja Sundaram and Ben Walter have two very specific goals; to ensure that you have an extraordinary experience staying at their historic inn which has been restored to its former glory with your comfort in mind, and to introduce you to their ever growing 200 acre nature preserve. Husband and wife team, Sonja, whose background lies in geography and teaching, and Ben, whose specialties are marine biology and ecotoxicology, are committed to the environmental preservation of this extraordinary place. Oceanside Meadows marries all that you would expect from an historic inn that has been open since 1860, with an unparalleled opportunity to explore and understand Maine's environment and its natural splendor. We welcome you to explore our inn and the wonders of our peninsula and surrounding area. Treat yourself to a relaxing respite on the ocean. Be lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf on our private sandy beach. Individually appointed bedrooms are all furnished with your comfort in mind. Ocean and meadow views, private baths, flowers from the garden and gentle sea breezes await you.

This place really blew me away! We had a comfortable 3rd-floor room in the Captain's House. Service was unbelievable, the Inn was immaculate, and the 3-course gourmet breakfast can't possibly be beat. The location was incredible, too - remote enough to be peaceful and across the street from the beach. I will definitely go back!

We really began our New England vacation when we finally arrived at the Oceanside B&B. We had thought we were staying near Bar Harbor, but were instead forty minutes away! This was my fault for not really looking at a map, but in the end we were happy to be away from the touristy area of Bar Harbor. Prospect Harbor is quiet and beautiful, although there are not too many restaurants open during the "off season". We had wonderful wonderful vegetarian breakfasts which seemed to bother a few of the other visitors, but not us. The breakfasts were truly gourmet ! A very enjoyable experience!

This B&B was great. Everything was wonderful, from the spectacular view, to the homey atmosphere in the houses, to the nice clean rooms, to the wonderful friendly staff. The breakfasts that they serve each morning was to die for and I greatly missed them when I left. I was pleasantly surprised with the location to Bar Harbor and would not have known about the fishing village in Corea and possibly Schoodic Peninsula. They were very helpful in recommending the whale watching cruise with Captn Robertson which was the hi-light of our stay even though we couldn't go because of a storm that blewn in. We toured the light houses,saw seals that we could almost touch and pulled lobster traps! I would definitly come again and stay here!

Pre-check in was flawless by which I mean prompt and informative email explaining availabilities, room info, cancellation policy (reasonable) and other details. Made us feel welcome even before we arrived! When we got there we were met by owner who provided useful info about what to see and do in the area. Laminated printed guide sheets that he prepared were excellent. Room was charming. Lovely and intimate breakfast room and living room. Friendly staff, beautiful grounds. Could not have asked for a better situation!

We wanted a special place to celebrate our anniversary, and Oceanside Meadows delivered it, and then some. The staff are phenomenal, friendly, courteous and accomodating. The view was spectacular from our room, and there's nothing like falling asleep to the water lapping on the shore. And if you don't know what to do on any given day, the innkeepers (Ben and Sonja) have a 14 day agenda already prepared! It was very truly the best vacation we've had, and will certainly be back.
