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.

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.

Our favorite place to be!!!

5 on September 02, 2018

We have returned to Oceanside Meadows Inn year after year and have never been disappointed. My husband and I love that area, love the Inn and love the friends we have made who own and run the Inn. The breakfast each morning is carefully made, carefully served and is delicious! The historic Sea Captain's home and the Farmhouse is quaint and lovingly cared for. Unfortunate for us, we could not plan the trip during the time that one of their 'events' took place. In the past years, we have enjoyed the events and appreciate the time and trouble that Ben takes to book these. Next year, I will try to plan well ahead so as not to miss that!! Every trip there has passed too quickly and I spend each winter looking forward to our next trip to Oceanside Meadows Inn. It is by far, our favorite place to be!!!


A unique way to experience Acadia!

We did not want the hustle and bustle of Bar Harbor so we went for a quiet, interesting Inn. It has its own beach, beautiful gardens and hiking paths. Friendly staff and unique breakfasts presented with edibles from the gardens.


Loved our Trip

We had a fantastic time. Classic old Maine house so you know you're in Maine, which I love. We arrived on a Thursday night to learn that the Winter Harbor Music Festival was on site with a classical music performance and the next few days just flowed from that propitious start. We were charmed by the tea and biscuits all day in the living room and a fire in the evening so even when it rained, we were happy to be there reading, chatting with other guests, or playing chess. The inn keepers and their kids were so nice and interesting - we loved talking to them. The breakfasts were truly special. They helped us find great things to do and to know where to eat - the trip was great. I recommend it whole heartedly.


Charming Inn, Beautiful Setting

4.4 on August 24, 2018

We had a lovely three-night stay at Acadia's Oceanside Meadows Inn. The Inn is quaint, comfortable, and beautifully situated, with its own nature preserve (complete with detailed brochures about the flora, fauna, and marine life) and a private beach directly across the roadway. Our room on the top floor of the Inn was a bit snug, but had a lovely view of the beach, and we went to sleep each night to the sound of the waves lapping in the cove. The breakfast portion of this Bed and Breakfast is truly remarkable, consisting of a fruit soup, homemade sweet bread, and a creative and tasty vegetarian entree, each garnished with edible flowers from the Inn's lush gardens. I would recommend Oceanside Meadows to anyone looking for a peaceful retreat in a gorgeous rural area of coastal Maine.

Our stay at Acadia Oceanside Meadows was beautiful and comfortable . The breakfast prepared every morning made the beginning of our day lovely. The sight and the sounds of ocean waves was soothing to the senses. Ben always inquired of our welfare. Gave advises and provided anything we needed. Overall a very memorable stay!


Welcoming, comfortable, extreme beauty

My husband and I enjoyed a two-night stay at Acadia's Oceanside Meadows Inn. Innkeeper Ben was enormously helpful in getting us acclimated to the area. Our first day we drove off to explore, following Ben's advice to a "T." From the bike rentals that we used to tour Acadia; to the hike on the Schoodic Head Overlook trail; to the Petit Manan National Refuge trails our experiences could not have been more enjoyable. Our first night at the Inn, we were fortunate enough to be there during a special musical performance Ben arranged in a converted barn. This was an unforgettable trip to Maine and we cannot wait to return.


Peaceful and pretty

The location of this B&B is superb, right across a quiet road from the ocean. At night with the windows open, we were lulled to sleep by the sound of waves breaking on the beach. Our room was comfortable, although the bathroom was tiny by any standard. We were greeted upon arrival and given an overview of the hiking trails and other amenities located on the property. There is hiking for every taste and ability; woods, ocean path, rocky shoreline, meadows. Beautiful gardens adorn the yard of the main building. The breakfasts were first-class. At night, because it was cool-ish, a fire was lit in the living room area where we relaxed at the end of the day. We enjoyed our stay here and only wished we could have stayed a few more days in order to take advantage of the trails. This property is also located near the Schoodic Peninsula an extremely scenic part of Down East Maine.


A memorable, restful stay

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.


A bit of heaven at the Maine shore

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!
