About

This quiet corner of Maine's Midcoast is just enough off the well-trodden path that you'll have the pleasure of discovering your own special hideaway, the Newcastle Inn. Guest rooms have private bath and air conditioning and features vary and might include: gas stove or fireplace, or a private porch. Free WiFi access is available throughout the inn. Two rooms are “dog friendly”. While at the inn, relax in the common areas which include a three season porch with wood stove, living room with gas fireplace, parlor or weather permitting, outside on the deck. After a day spent exploring, enjoy the charms of our own little pub with a glass of wine or a Maine micro-brewed beer.

Wonderful Maine B&B

4.2 on January 05, 2014

Having not been to this part of Maine before, we selected Newcastle Inn based on some friends recommendations and great online reviews. When it came time for our trip in December we ended up traveling during some rough winter weather. But, that didn't take away from the great experience of staying at this inn. Innkeeper Julie is a wonderful host, helped us navigate some travel decisions before arriving, and made our stay fabulous! The inn itself was beautifully decorated for Christmastime, the room was very comfortable and immaculately clean, and the breakfasts that were prepared for us were simply delicious. I would certainly return to this inn again in the future!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at Newcastle Inn. We have had some challenging weather so far this winter and I'm glad that you were able to make it here. If that hadn't been possible we would have worked something out. My goal is to have people stay here and experience Newcastle Inn and all that this area has to offer. I hope that you are able to return at another time, perhaps when the weather is a little less "snowy."


Home away from home!

4.8 on October 02, 2013

A stay at the Newcastle Inn is like treating yourself to a home cooked meal made up entirely of comfort food. The innkeeper, Julie, is warm and welcoming and very helpful with many suggestions about what to do and where to go in the area. The inn itself is absolutely beautiful and comfortable -- and well worth whatever drive it takes to get there!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay at Newcastle Inn. I want all guests to be comfortable while they are here at the inn and to feel as if this is their "home away from home" while traveling. Thank you again.


Rest for the weary.

We were on our way to Canada for our vacation to break up the driving. Newcastle Inn was chosen as a convenient stop. But when we got there we found a beautiful inn, a lovely room and wonderful owner. Julie was awesome. There's a view and the property is gorgeous. We love to do "walk about" in our own garden and when we're away, we always try to find a garden to wander and enjoy. Newcastle Inn had that too. Breakfast was delicious and Kath-a-rine was terrific too. We might well make Newcastle Inn a final destination next time! Thank you to Julie and Dolce.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to share you thoughts regarding your stay at Newcastle Inn. I am glad that you were able to enjoy the gardens, and the lovely view of the Damariscotta River, while you were here. I, along with Dolce, look forward to your return when you are able to spend a little bit more time in this special part of MidCoast Maine. Thank you again.


Extremely Comfortable

5 on August 08, 2013

I stayed at The Newcastle Inn for one night while I was on my way to Bar Harbor. I was very happy with my choice. Julie greeted me promptly and cheerfully showed me around. I immediately felt welcome and comfortable. It was especially important to me to feel safe since I was traveling alone. Not only did I feel safe, but after seeing my pretty room I knew I was in for a special treat. The room was immaculate and the bed was beautifully appointed with crisp cotton sheets, lots of comfy pillows, and a very pretty coverlet. I slept like a little princess. Breakfast on the sunny deck was scrumptious ~ fruit juice, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, sausage and two slices of delicious homemade bread. I hope to return to the inn next summer. I highly recommend The Newcastle Inn.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review regarding your stay at Newcastle Inn. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and felt safe while here at the inn. I hope that you are able to return to the inn next summer and stay a few nights so that you are able to explore and enjoy this very special part of Maine. Thank you again, Julie Bolthuis


A Great Stay as Always

4.4 on August 06, 2013

We are a family of four who have stayed at the Newcastle several times in recent years. We most recently spent three nights in July. Our experience has always been positive & enjoyable. Julie always extends a warm welcome and is wonderful at keeping track of her guests’ interests & activities. She is also very conscious of the fact that some people may be less than comfortable around, or have allergies to her dog, Dolce, in which case Dolce stays out of the inn. Rooms at the Newcastle Inn are impeccably clean and comfortable. We have stayed in a wide selection of the rooms. The majority are very spacious, with sitting areas. Bathrobes, fans, hair driers, and re-usable water bottles are among the amenities provided. Julie has been gradually renovating rooms, giving them a fresh and updated look. The front rooms are on the street, which is fairly quiet, especially at night, but do experience some noise, particularly in the morning. As with any older building, you may hear the odd nearby floor squeak or bathroom fan, but overall it is very quiet. Breakfasts are delicious. The fruit “course” that usually starts the meal is always fresh and tasty. The breakfast menu is always posted the night beforehand, but Julie will work with guests to find alternatives or to adjust portions. Guests have the option of enjoying breakfast on the deck, with lovely views of the garden and water. Various common areas are available for guests. We especially enjoy the screen porch, which always has a jigsaw puzzle set up and which offers views of the water. There are also Adirondack chairs scattered throughout the garden. The Inn retains much of its original architectural charm. It offers convenient access to, and a quiet respite from, the many activities and attractions of mid-cost Maine and the charming Pemaquid peninsula in particular. Being able to walk into town is an added bonus. We look forward to our stays at the Newcastle Inn - it feels like coming home.
