Pentagoet Inn Bed and Breakfast, located in one of the most unspoiled
and historic coastal villages of the Maine coast, is just up the hill from the picturesque harbor of Castine.

The main building is a Victorian structure built in 1894.  Guestrooms are also housed in an adjacent Colonial style building, which is over 200 years old. The wrap-around porch and common rooms offer guests an opportunity for socializing or solitude.

This whimsical Queen Anne Victorian with its three-story turret, quirky gables and adjoining 18th century cottage offers fabulous weekend getaways in Maine. It has 16 bedrooms, all with private baths. There is a hint of a tilt to the floors and doors and with all the delightful nooks and crannies, each room is unique.

You will feel comfortably at home with the inns charming mix of antiques and collectibles.  The rooms are furnished with attention to detail, antiques, vintage lithographs, luxury linens, down pillows and old-fashioned floral coverlets. Most rooms have king-size beds, several have claw foot tubs and fireplaces and one has a flower-bedecked balcony. 


The sixteen guestrooms are imaginatively and comfortably decorated, and the landscaped gardens invite visitors to enjoy a quiet hour strolling, or relaxing on benches or in the hammock.

In the morning you’ll wake to the smell of fresh-brewed coffee set outside your door. A full country breakfast will follow: Maine blueberries picked at a local farm, homemade granola, featherbed eggs, baked apple French toast, muffins and scones warm from the oven. Enjoy your breakfast on the deck or sit at a table for two in the dining room. You’ll be well fortified for the day’s explorations!   The baking is done daily by the chef/owner who for twenty years owned the Pink Rose Pastry Shop, a nationally acclaimed business in Philadelphia


We invite you to dinner. It’s casual by candlelight with Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong in the background.  Our dining room is intimate, graced with floral paintings, mismatched antique china and garden flowers on every table. On warm evenings there is a table for you on the porch, under the stars. 

It’s exceptional home-cooking that honors the classics in its soulful simplicity and bow to the seasons. Our chef, Gina Melita, uses ingredients that are local, fresh from the farms and waters that surround us. The menu features lobster and local shellfish, native fish and game, New England specialties and fine desserts. There is a well-stocked wine cellar as well as a full bar. Reservations are suggested. 

" We wish our home cooking tasted like this!.....
be sure to order the exceptional bouillabaisse
