This place is a true gem. Nestled on a picturesque street in a quaint town by the water, the Pentagoet is full of charm and warmth, not to mention first rate food. The menu always has a wonderful combination of local Maine greats like lobster, crab cakes and oysters (always presented creatively), and exquisite meats like steak and lamb chops... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. This is a quaint little town. Beautiful harbor. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was different in that there was yogurt, fruit, muffins etc as a buffet but then a few entrees to order from the menu. I wasn't a fan of the French toast but still good food. Julie and... More

This is a delightful small hotel in the heart of Castine. It's comfortable, pleasant and full of treasures from the town's rich history. The staff is wonderful - helpful, attentive and knowledgeable. Don't sleep in, you'll miss the amazing breakfasts, with home-baked goodies.

We were attending a wedding on the coast of Maine and looking for a place to stay and make it a weekend trip. The Pentagoet was by far the best inn for the area with a WiFi, amazing breakfast, hor d'oeuvres, and a cozy retreat in a historic Victorian hotel. It was a great launching point for each of our...

We wished we were there longer to spend more time in castine and with our hosts, Julie and Jack(especially when we... More

We have stayed at the Pentagoet Inn on at least 4 occasions, most recently in July. Located in quaint Castine, a town with a fascinating history, it is just a short walk to the harbor, local shopping, and restaurants. We have stayed in the main inn and the cottage house. Both locations are clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast is a... More

Beautiful Inn, excellent food, reasonable wine list, attentive staff. We were fortunate to have stayed over a Tuesday night, where on their lovely wrap around porch, a terrific Jazz group preformed. The Innkeepers, Julie and Jack go out of their way to make the Pentagoet a memorable stay!

If you're the type to saunter on out to a remote location in Maine (like me) and find a nook to write in a for a few days (like me), consider Pentagoet Inn. The place is practically in a dream world of unique natural settings without any fuss of dense populations, inconveniences, and lack of services. Located in Castine, a... More

Second trip here. Breakfast is included. Restaurant is open in the evening. Nice wrap around porch. Easily walkable to the harbor. Room #3 has a small deck overlooking the Main Street. No AC, but fans are available.
