Open Hearth Inn, Down East Maine
Classic Maine Cottages with Many Pluses
Open Hearth Inn, Down East Maine, is a 17 unit complex consisting of classic Maine cottages, Inn style suites, lodge/motel rooms and two fully appointed apartments. Something for everyone!
Come and take a journey back in time. The cottages are the original authentic 1950 cottages built when the Open Hearth became an Inn, with a few modern conveniences thrown in. The Inn-style suites are in the original house, circa 1800’s which allows the traveler to experience what it would have been like to stay in an Inn in Maine back then, with modern conveniences added. If those are too far back in time, the lodge is circa 1970’s for that retro feel of the seventies. These historical accommodations are disappearing across the country, however every unit at Open Hearth is the real deal with the original buildings.
