Youngtown Inn and Restaurant

581 youngtown road , Lincolnville, ME 04849 USA (Show map)


The Youngtown Inn is a classic 1810 farmhouse built proudly upon two centuries of New England heritage. This grand old house was the center of Young family poultry and dairy farm for more than seven generations. Our intimate Inn offers six comfortable and tastefully decorated guest rooms with private baths. Some rooms offer queen canopy or sleigh beds, balconies and fireplaces. All rooms offer the convenience of free wireless internet. Seasonal rates available. The Youngtown Inn Restaurant offers elegant dining in gracious surroundings. Chef/owner Manuel Mercier draws upon his French heritage and European training to create an array of traditionally prepared dishes. Please take a moment to review one of the restaurant's sample menus as well as their extensive wine cellar offerings. Nestled in the Camden Hills, the inn is just five minutes away from Camden Harbor. Located halfway between Boothbay and Bar Harbor, it is the ideal location for exploring the Midcoast Region.

EXCELLENT, as usual...

Lucky to get a brief second stay at Youngtown Inn this summer. The Merciers are so welcoming. They make you feel like an old friend coming home for a visit. As usual, the food is amazingly wonderful. The breakfast ( I had fresh pineapple, out of the oven croissants, locally grown blueberry & peach pancakes, fresh OJ and good coffee) will hold you for the day. Dinner offers an array of 5 star dishes prepared by Manuel in the French chef tradition....swoon worthy. (Dessert souffles are always terrific ends to perfect dinners) Gives "bon appetit" new meaning! Rooms are quaint and lovely. Marianne knows everything that is going on in the area and is a great resource for travelers. Hope I can squeeze in one more stopover this Fall. Loved my room with the porch...great retreat.

Lovely B&B. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for 3 nights and just wish I had stayed longer. Hosts Manuel and Maryann are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are beautiful. Breakfast is amazing. We also had dinner there two nights which was excellent. Rack of Lamb was especially good

Charming inn with fabulous food!

This inn was so romantic, and the gourmet food was extraordinary. Marianne, one of the owners, was very friendly and welcoming. Plus, Cellardoor Winery is just a mile down the road so we were able to walk to it and back. A memorable stay!

Wonderful Stay

Great and welcoming hostess and great food

Delightful family weekend in picture perfect bed and breakfast

This was my first bed and breakfast experience and it was wonderful! My brother and I and our spouses brought my elderly parents for a beautiful weekend in their favorite area in Maine. Maryanne was such a gracious hostess, just spoiled everyone especially my dad who has gotten a bit fussy lately!The food was wonderful, we could hardly wait to see what Chef Manuel Mercier had prepared each day. The onsite restaurant is intimate and elegant with great French menu with a local flair. Location is great- right between Camden and Belfast with good hikes available close by. I would happily recommend this lovely rustic Inn to anyone!

My husband and I were looking forward to our return trip to the Youngtown Inn and our beloved Maine. As always the room was beautiful and it felt very private. ManyAnn and Manuel were as gracious and MaryAnn even had my favorite flowers in the room upon our arrival. Our breakfasts were over the top and our dinner was top star!! We cannot wait for our visit next year!!!

Charming & Quiet

3.8 on September 20, 2016

Our stay at Youngtown Inn was restful and quiet, yet we were minutes from shops, restaurants and breath-taking views of the Maine coast. We were well taken care of and had plenty of privacy. The breakfasts were delicious and so beautifully presented. Our room was clean and tastefully decorated with a balcony overlooking the countryside, which reminded us a bit of the south of France.
