About

In a setting reminiscent of the casual, relaxed summers of yesteryear are ten distinctive, one-of-a-kind oceanfront vacation cottages. The cottages stretch along the shore of East Penobscot Bay and are located centrally to the Blue Hill Peninsula's activities, restaurants and attractions. On site are acres of woodlands and trails, beaches on lake and ocean, mowed fields, and magnificent overlooks. Cottages are sized for 1 to 6 people. Housekeeping and laying logs in your fireplace is provided on a daily basis. Welcome Breakfast Basket available. In the style of "Old Maine", we've been welcoming guests since 1889.

About the innkeepers

I am a designer who married into this innkeeping family. With me came creativity and design talent to bring revitalized life to the existing period cottages. I am keeping our family's innkeeping tradition alive with the help of our children, staff, and friends. They have worked in the business for many years, and while not on site all the time, share an active part in the operations. Our new staff is wonderful too and you will find them most hospitable.
