While we do not boast an ocean view, we are located 150 yards from the rugged Pemaquid coast and lighthouse. Pemaquid has a pine-treed sandy beach located near the old fort and restoration area (the site of three of the most ancient forts in the country). We are a 45 minute drive from Boothbay Harbor's shops and one hour from Camden's scenic harbor. There are a variety of restaurants in the area (one next to the lighthouse serving breakfast, lunch and dinner). New Harbor (5 mins. by car) offers dine-in-the-ruff seafood restaurants and daily boat excursions to Monhegan Island. The Hotel (converted from a farmhouse) was opened to guests on July 4, 1888 and you are welcome to browse through our complete set of Guest Registers.
We love old things, and take great pleasure in salvaging them. Few can walk through the lobby without being drawn into a comfortable old chair... come early, if you want the two seats in front of the fireplace! All our rooms have private baths, with the exception of four rooms on the second floor of the Hotel that share two baths. The Hotel offers a large stone-fireplaced livingroom/lobby, separate library room, enclosed sun porch (coffee served on this porch daily between 7-10:00 a.m.). If you are planning a 'first' trip to the Pemaquid area, we can guarantee... it won't be your last! Come take a step back with us... somewhere in time.
