My husband and I originally stayed at Castlemaine Inn in 2012 for our honeymoon. We decided to come back this July because of such great experience the first time. We originally booked the Secret Room, and upon arrival were upgraded to the Garden Room! As usual, the accommodations were affordable, comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast was... More

I booked for 4 nights but had to split the reservation into two rooms based on availability. I messed up by not properly booking the last night. Dan (owner) gave us the last night in an upgraded room (aka suite) while only charging us the room rate for a much lessor room we had booked. The B&B is strategically located... More

We have now spent 5 summer vacations at the Castlemaine Inn. We can't imagine staying anywhere else. The Inn offers an amazing breakfast and comfortable rooms. The best part is the beautiful porch where we have coffee and happy hour every day. Just a fine-minute walk from the Village, it is the perfect getaway, quiet, but close to the hustle... More

We completely enjoyed our three night stay. We were greeted upon our arrival by Bobbie. She was very welcoming and helpful. She took the time to show us around the inn and give us a map of the area. She Also provided some information about some of the local restaurants. She personally escorted us to our room. We stayed in... More

The Castlemaine Inn has all the elements of a B&B but none of the closeness or intrusion. Our room was spacious with a private balcony and indoor hot tub. The facility was intimate and cozy but with lots of communal space, inside and out. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. And the breakfast? A choice of 2 exquisite entrees and... More

My family of five (two adults and three children ages 12, 11, and 5) stayed here for three nights. We came here after we discovered that the motel we were booked into was a mold infested disaster. Dan was very accommodating and friendly and literally rescued our vacation. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, an extremely large room that easily... More

My husband & I recently stayed at Castlemaine Inn in Bar Harbor and what a pleasure. The inn was built in 1886 and was once the summer home of the Austrian-Hungarian ambassador and his wife. Far from stuffy, it was lovely, warm, and friendly as were all the staff. Delightful Bobbie, the assistant, went out of her way to be... More

Very comfortable room with a great breakfast. Hosts keep track of guest experiences at local restaurants and provide current advice for the best places to eat. Dan has hiked most or all of the trails at Acadia and gave us a super recommendation for a day hike. The highlight was clambering up the Beehive—not a recommended trip for those that... More

The comfort, cleanliness, and romantic aesthetic of the room, the delicious breakfasts, the friendly service, and the special care shown by Dan and his staff all contributed to an extremely pleasant stay! We were there over Fourth of July weekend and Dan sent out an email early in the week recommending reservations at certain top restaurants (due to high demand),... More

My husband and I stayed at the Castlemaine while traveling up the Maine Coast. Dan, Bobbie and Emily made our stay so very special! Dan was there every morning sharing our experiences and offering tips and welcomed advice on our day's travels. We enjoyed our delicious breakfast along with Emily's warm smile every morning. The staff so graciously upgraded our... More
