We come to the Pentagoet every year mid October and thoroughly enjoy our short stay(usually just before they close for the season!) Jack and Julie are always so welcoming. The rooms are charming and wonderfully furnished. We have an excellent dinner and yummy breakfast. What more can we ask for!

This place gives the real feeling of the east coast. The atmosphere was amazing. The rooms are superbly comfortable and quiet. You feel like you are in your own home. Jack Julie and the staff are extremely helpful and guaranteed you will not find nicer people at any hotel. They do everything to make your stay the very best. LOVE... More

Based on some friends recommendations and the TA reviews, we thought this would be the highlight of our B&B experiences on our trip. Wrong! It was probably the least impressive ()but most expensive) of the whole trip. Just OK and disappointing room. Noisy street as people exited the bar & restaurant. Just OK breakfast. The staff were not especially attentive... More

We (the Carman family of five) spent four nights here in late August 2014 attending our nephew/cousin's wedding in the Blue Hill area. A large gathering of family and friends from around the world, three wonderful days of festivities, and then the luxurious haven of Pentagoet Inn, and the peace of Castine, at the end of each day. Our rooms... More

Loved the charm of the Inn! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Dinner was a bit overpriced but there is nothing else around. Breakfast was amazingly delicious! Castine is a very historical town with amazing water views but all of Maine seems to have amazing water views, therefore Castine doesn't have much to keep someone entertained for many days. It...

What can I say? Another 5* experience under the dedicated hands of Jack, Julie and the rest of the staff at the Pentagoet. This was our first time going up to Castine in September. The weather was fall perfect. We took a new room, 5C in the Perkins House. The room was enormous with 4 windows bringing in the light.... More

The Inn is charming. The Inn keepers are warm, entertaining and comfortable in their roles. You can snuggle up and look at the beautiful harbor while reading their ample supply of books and magazines while enjoying a crumpet and tea. The dining room is lively and the food is delicious. Do not miss a visit to the bar. Walk all... More

The Pentagoet Inn in Castine, ME is a place to relax and enjoy coastal Maine in a well-preserved inn and an interesting and picturesque setting. Not fancy but very welcoming, the inn is a well-run Victorian B&B with a caring staff, charming little bar, excellent dining room, comfortable rooms (but narrow stairways so pack light), and in a perfect location...

Lovely Inn, interesting host, wonderful position and great breakfasts. Lots of nice touches like complimentary tea and cakes mid afternoon and pre dinner snacks served in the bar. Free use of bikes for exploring. Castine is a really beautiful spot, well worth a visit.

We stayed in 5 different inns on our trip to the mid-coastal area of Maine this fall. The Pentagoet was my favorite! We had a charming gabled room on the third floor with a king size bed. The bedding was lovely, the bed comfortable, and the furnishings in the room (antique dresser, leather chairs) all very nice. The bathroom was... More
