This is the place to stay in Castine! The inn is located on a street lined with lovely old homes overlooking the harbor within an easy stroll to the waterfront. Our room was comfortable and attractively furnished, and spotlessly clean. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful. Best of all was the breakfast. We helped ourselves to fresh fruit and...

This historic inn is a relic of days gone by. One can imagine how wonderful it would have been in it's day. Nestled in the village, it is a short walk to the harbor. We passed on their $9 breakfast and went to Markel's and had a great breakfast with the locals who gather there every morning.

Love The Castine Inn. Comfortable and attractive décor. Nice overall vibe. Great location for exploring the area--wonderful hiking and walking excursions near by. We also rent bikes and sea kayaks. Simply put, a great place to go to relax and enjoy Maine's outdoors.

The Castine Inn is an utterly charming place in a town of equal charm. The current owners have done a nice job of updating the decor without losing the core character of this historic proper--which is no small feat. The gardens are lovely, as is the deck overlooking them. For those bemoaning the lack of "remodeling": if by remodeling you... More

I've been going to Castine for years, and this is one of my favorite places to stay while I'm there. It's right in the center of their quaint and small downtown area. It's an older building that has been lovingly converted to an Inn. During the summer you will definitely need a reservation as it's usually completely booked.

The town of Castine is very small and historic. I was expecting an old hotel. Not much remodeling has been done, hard bed, no television in rooms. It was clean and had an outdoor dining area. Community television and computer room. Small bar with character inside but you will be the only guest. Good option for available lodging.

My family stayed just for one night and it was perfect. What a nice gem. Our room overlooked the town and waterfront and the staff were kind and friendly. It's a charming place and I would love to go back when I had more time to just sit on the porch and rock. Beautiful gardens as an added bonus. I... More

Just had a lovely overnight stay at the Castine Inn with my 2 daughters. Room 11 is a nice, big room which faces east with a view of the water, and large bathroom with plenty of towels. There was a queen bed and a cot was made up and ready for us upon arrival. Enjoyed a delicious breakfast the next... More

Love, love, love the Castine Inn. We've been there a few times and the staff is tremendous, the location perfect, and the sleeping arrangements - the staff went out of their way to accomodate! Breakfast with the room and a bar in the evening. Hoping a dinner option comes to fruition this year. Can't wait until they reopen in the... More

I was more than pleased with this lovely inn. Our room was very clean and the grounds were beautifully maintained. The staff went above and beyond with their customer service and met our requests with a helpful, can-do attitude. I highly recommend The Castine Inn.
