This inn is in a lovely spot by the river. Julie is very welcoming, with Dolce of course. The common areas are very comfortable and our room on the third floor was extremely spacious, even had it's own sitting area. Breakfasts were very enjoyable. Good restaurants close by, King Eider was recommended and was excellent. All in all a great... More

Dear Sharon J, Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Newcastle Inn. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your room on the third floor. The rooms up there are among my favorites because of the creative use of former attic space. Many guests, like yourselves, enjoy sitting on the deck, or in the backyard to enjoy... More

We have no family connections in the midcoast area, but were visiting for a wedding. We decided to stay at Newcastle Inn simply based on its closeness to the wedding venue. We were very surprised and happy to find the inn was incredibly welcoming, comfortable, and well-managed. Julie, the inn's owner, was consistently present (whether making and serving breakfast, gardening,... More

This was the perfect place to use as a base to explore mid-coast Maine. The accommodations were fantastic. Julie, the innkeeper could nota have been more pleasant and accommodating! Her breakfasts were delicious and sustainable into mid-day. The Monhegan Island room where we stayed was quiet and pleasant. Newly painted, it was clean (as was the entire place) and safe.

This is about as comfortable and relaxing as it gets. Just spent three nights at the Inn on business/pleasure and felt completely at home. We finished the jigsaw puzzle one night and there was another ready to go the next day. Lovely breakfasts prepared by Julie, the Innkeeper. Damariscotta restaurants all open, and very pleasant views. Rooms are quiet, commodious... More

I had to find some last minute accommodation for an Australian film crew in Newcastle and required space to film an interview in. Julie the owner was absolutely brilliant, I can't thank her enough. My crew were extremely well looked after. Julie was flexible when the crew got delayed due to the snow. It was no problem when we had... More

We've traveled to the Newcastle/Damariscotta area twice now. The first trip we stayed at another B&B nearby, but wanted to give the Newcastle Inn a try this year. Overall it was a pleasant stay, but, I'd say we liked our stay last year slightly better than this trip. Julie was kind and courteous and our room was immaculate. We stayed... More

Dear lisab8s, Thank you for your review. The housekeepers work hard to keep things in tip top shape here at the inn. I will be sure to pass your comment along to them. There are other king bed rooms on the second floor, but for many repeat guests, only the Heron Neck room will do. The Oysterfest at the end... More

Julie makes everyone feel like they are visiting family. Her interest in all of her guests does not go unnoticed. Dolce the resident pooch is a joy to be around too. The inn has the warmth of an old home but lacks no modern amenity. Don't miss Julies breakfast or here baked goodies she is a master.

Having not been to this part of Maine before, we selected Newcastle Inn based on some friends recommendations and great online reviews. When it came time for our trip in December we ended up traveling during some rough winter weather. But, that didn't take away from the great experience of staying at this inn.

There are other places to stay in the area, but we keep going back to the Newcastle Inn.
