The Pentagoet Inn offers romantic rooms and exquisite dining. Nestled on a seaside bluff, graced with majestic elms, it overlooks the village and harbor of Castine, Maine. Built in 1894 the inn is Castine's oldest, original "summer hotel" still welcoming guests of Penobscot Bay. This whimsical ME bed and breakfast has a prominent three story turret, gables and a delightful wraparound porch lined with lush window boxes and wicker rockers, flowers are for sale by the honor box.

We decided to visit Castine on our way North to Bar Harbor and stopped at the Pentagoet Inn. It was a good idea. The location was ideal, right near the wharf. Good bed. Good night sleep, nice private bathroom across the hall, and a nice buffet breakfast. Julie was everywhere all the time and paying attention to every detail. (I got tired just watching her...) We had an outstanding dinner (the bouillabaisse was outstanding, and I come from bouillabaisse country) and Jack was very worldly : ). Great Inn and great Innkeepers! We will definitely visit again.

We were headed to a nearby town, but decided on the Pentagoet. It was a decision I do not regret. The Pentagoet Inn and Castine are like stepping back in time. I cannot say enough good things: warm, friendly, welcoming, comfortable, relaxing...it all fits! Jack, Julie and staff are really focused on making sure you have an enjoyable stay. We stayed in a king room in the separate house behind the inn. It was a sizeable room, well furnished, with an ensuite bathroom. This is an older historic place with all the associated charm but the cleanliness and comfort of a new place. Our experience the third night typifies how they go the extra mile. Tired from a day at Acadia, we arrived back at the inn shortly after closing time for the restaurant. We really wanted some dessert but thought we were too late and under dressed. Jack could not have been more welcoming, ushering us into the bar and making sure that we were served drinks and dessert, with a good side of conversation and advice on what to do the following day. Castine is a wonderful hamlet. Close enough to tourist filled places like Camden and Bar Harbor, but far enough away to really make you feel like you have gotten away from it all. Ride the free bikes, enjoy a great breakfast, read a paper on the porch, walk around town, experience the nearby beauty of the coast, savor a great dinner at the restaurant downstairs...this is a true vacation.

I stayed at the Pentagoet last summer with my husband, our second visit in five years. The Victorian era that marks the hotel's beginnings are subtly evoked in the furnishings, linen, flowers, and courtly service. The food was as divine as we had remembered, and the wraparound porch is comfortably furnished with comfortable wicker for a quiet newspaper in the morning, or drink with a companion. Really heavenly!! Jack and Julie know how to make a visitor feel welcome, and their bar, Passport, is a window into another world. Jeannine

We booked one night at the Pentagoet Inn and ended up staying for three. It was wonderful. The Inn is beautiful, well appointed, very comfortable. We love old historic buildings, and the Pentagoet is a classic. Jack & Julie are wonderful hosts; Jack spent time telling us about places not to miss (and some to miss!) which helped us make the most of our time there. The food at the Inn was great. Breakfast offered a variety of options, and we thoroughly enjoyed dinner there. It was delicious! We went in mid Oct, and it was obvious that this is very much a summer town. It was very quiet, and when walking around the town at night, most of the homes were dark. I imagine it's a lovely town all lit up on a summer evening, but it was like a ghost town when we were there. Just an aside, not anything the Pentagoet could do about it :)

We traveled in Maine for 1 week and stayed in 6 different bed and breakfasts. Pentagoet Inn was our favorite. The atmosphere was charming, the furnishings appropriate for a Victorian establishment. We especially enjoyed talking with Jack, the innkeeper. He was very helpful in planning our day trips. We dined at the onsight restaurant two times, and we were very pleased. The breakfast was delightful as well. Try to stay in either the room with the turret or the balcony-wonderful!
