We have traveled up and down the coast of Maine for years, and the Newcastle Inn is the perfect mid-coast location. Our room was lovely and well-appointed with a separate sitting room and spacious bathroom. The Inn has numerous common spaces to get away and relax - there's a great screened porch (our favorite), a pub room with fireplace and... More

Dear Margie H I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Newcastle Inn while exploring the area. There is so much to see and do in this little corner of the world. Like you, the screen porch is my favorite room, and that of many of my guests. I couldn't agree more that the Coastal Maine Botanical... More

Our stay at Newcastle Inn was lovely. Great details in our room, delicious breakfast and super friendly host. The inn and surrounding grounds are very well taken care of. We stayed in one of the bigger rooms and were very comfortable.

Delightful traditional New England Inn, big spacious accommodation and in a gorgeous waterside setting. Staff are really friendly and welcoming and breakfast specially cooked and very tasty. Not your standard hotel breakfast. We were very comfortable.

Pros: Lovely B&B with a warm welcome, fine breakfast and excellent quiet location. Lovely grounds with view of river; Wifi excellent Cons: On day after Columbus Day weekend, hard to find an equally classy place to eat. But this seems to be a problem all over Maine. Maine is not Vermont for foodies!

The Newcastle Inn is immaculate and quiet -- but not formal. The owner is friendly but not overly so (you'd be surprised at how quickly we've at times had to eat breakfast due to hovering innkeepers!) and very knowledgeable about the Bristol area. On a quiet road with tall trees, the Inn is a short, pleasant walk to town and... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Newcastle Inn last weekend to celebrate his birthday. We stayed in the Monhegan Island room, which was extremely comfortable and recommended by Julie, the owner. Our room had recently been redecorated, and was lovely.

Comfortable,charming,cozy.clean. Terrific location for mid coast. Julie and her friendly staff run a first rate Inn. All the old world charm has been kept intact while modern updates to the baths and very good beds give you all the comforts of home. Breakfasts are delicious and hearty. Wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to visit again.
