Castine Maine Coastal Inn for Sale
Circa 1898 Historic Hotel and Perennial Gardens by the Sea
Castine is one of few destinations within Maine’s buzzing travel and tourism market that has retained its authenticity and historical spirit while continuing to develop an active following of elite guests. Few markets along the Maine coast offer the unique setting and style of Castine and the same is true of the historic Castine Inn, a Castine Maine Coastal Inn for sale, which sits at the center of the historic village overlooking Penobscot Bay.
The Castine Inn was purpose built as a seasonal hotel in 1898, which is a rarity in a market where hospitality properties have largely been converted from stately residences. The handsome Georgian Federal Revival-style Inn has a presence on Castine’s main street – just one block from the downtown harbor – as does the Inn’s mature perennial gardens which offer 7,200 square feet of “garden rooms” that were designed by previous owner and artist Margaret Parker who also painted a famous mural of the town that adorns the walls of the Inn’s formal dining room. The Inn’s capacious wraparound porch which connects to the Inn’s dining room is a favored location in summer.
The first floor of the Inn includes the formal entry hall, parlor with fireplace, window seats, and period furnishings and access to the Inn’s pub and the front desk. The dining room and an adjunct sitting room are just beyond this space, immediately followed by the fully commercial kitchen which supports an expansion of the Inn’s dining services which have been limited by the personal desires of owners in recent years.
The Inn’s 19 guest rooms are located on the two upper floors and range from quality standard style rooms to spacious and well-appointed king suites with separate sitting rooms. All rooms have private ensuite baths and many guest rooms enjoy views of the harbor and the Inn’s formal garden.
Castine, Maine, is a serene New England village set on a peninsula that reaches into Penobscot Bay. Known for its streets ‘adorned with elms and surrounded by the sea,’ Castine is far enough from Route One in Mid-Coast Maine that it feels like you have stepped back in time. Visitors to this quiet but active market come for the serenity and retreat from the familiarity of the day-to-day. Day trips up and down the coast can take you to Deer Isle, Blue Hill, and Acadia National Park. Other Mid-coast towns within easy reach include Camden, Rockport, Rockland, and Lincolnville.
