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.

Enjoying the scenery and charm of this unique inn was a wonderful way for us to celebrate a special anniversary. We loved that it is located in a quiet area with the ocean across the street. We had a front room, so listening to the crash of waves every night was fantastic.

Our stay at Acadia's Oceanside Meadows Inn was wonderful. The Inn brings you back to a time gone by as you view the sea from its windows. A respite from today's hustle and bustle world!

Ben is the ultimate host and tour guide, providing a personalized experience of this beautiful area. Breakfasts are delectable, with herbs and garnish straight from his garden. Breathtaking views, sounds and smells of ocean, meadows and wildlife are right outside your window. Expect accommodations to be quirky and quaint, characteristic of an older home, but loaded with charm and ambiance. Take the ferry to see the rest of Acadia National Park and you will be wowed with more views and wildlife without the traffic. A memorable and lovely stay!

A beautiful old house close to the silent bay with very nice and big rooms and outstanding breakfast. Interesting surroundings with good possibilities for easy hiking and a ferry to Acadia national park.

We enjoyed the calm and originality of the location on Schoodic Peninsula. We took the boat from Winther Harbour to Bar Harbour - so fine, and rented bicycles. We also had a fine day exploring Schoodic.

My stay at the inn was wonderful. Beautiful surroundings. The ocean view from my room was spectacular - the sound of the waves each night - so perfect. Ben was a gracious host - the staff was very friendly - all of which you made you feel welcomed.

Very quaint but lovely rooms. Loved the view from the rocking chairs in our room. Fabulous breakfast. They even made a special breakfast for my husband who refuses to eat vegetables. Would absolutely stay there again1

The proprietor (Ben) started us off right by giving us a great summary of the events in the area. The staff (Dolly in particular) was very friendly and helpful - she really set a nice tone. The home/room we stayed in was perfect - overlooking the ocean. Just hearing the waves crash against the shore at night made for two great nights of sleep! We also loved the trails that were part of the property - what a nice touch! We definitely enjoyed our stay and would stay again in the future if we had the opportunity.
