The Pentagoet Inn has managed to make pandemic adjustments with aplomb, without sacrificing service and great taste. The lobster linguini is one of my favorite meals in the world! When that is on the menu, I am beyond thrilled! It is such a memorable dish and I am always tempted to order two. Salads and starters are always the freshest inventive choices and desserts are always exceptional. The charming atmosphere also never disappoints. We are frequent visitors and as usual, everything was exceptional and delicious, with attention to every detail. Be sure to enjoy a cocktail on the wrap around porch or in the parlor or pub before or after dinner to complete your experience. It will be an evening to remember!

We stayed in Room 1, which is very nice except the shower/tub combo is tricky as it is a claw foot tub with a modified shower so the shower curtain billows inward and there is nothing to hang on to. The room has a nice bay window with two chairs which is especially good during Covid times as breakfast is delivered to your room in a box (or you can eat on the porch/dining room but it still comes all prepared in a box). We had dinner the first night and again because of Covid it was a limited menu (tapas style menu). It wasn't outstanding but it was good. The staff was friendly and nice however I would guess they are shorthanded as they were advertising for help.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was large, clean and very homey. The bathroom was large and amenities were good. The only warning is if you have trouble climbing stairs, watch out. Our room was on the third floor and no elevator. No problem for us but might be for others.

This Victorian mansion is a real gem. It was very peaceful with outdoor porches + comfortable chairs. The gardens are lovely along with morning glories winding up trellises. Very picturesque. The bar is very unique with framed photos everywhere of Ghandi, Queen Elizabeth, Gaddafi, Imelda Marcos, Muhammad Ali, etc. at least 14 dimly lit. 3 disappointments: room was not cleaned-bed not made, boxed breakfasts + when I made the reservation was not told they do not serve dinners on Sunday + Monday. The staff was very accommodating. There is a lovely gift shop where the items are reasonably priced. We'd come back again when they serve their gourmet dinners.

Room number 1 was bright and spacious. The tub/shower is a bit tricky and not great if you lack balance. Lots of windows, nice area to sit and watch the "town" and plenty of fresh air. Could be a bit noisy at night if the traffic was bad but a fan in the window covers a lot of that.

We were here in 2013 and were utterly charmed. The inn earned our 5 star rating. We looked forward to returning after 8 years and booked a week long stay. Whimsical interior touches, its unique pub with a collection of notables’ portraits on the walls, and thoughtfully done rooms/bathrooms stood out. Covid19 adaptations are understandable (breakfast is left outside your door, rooms are not serviced daily). The wonderful jazz music is still being performed. Sadly, overall maintenance has declined. Everything felt fresh and tastefully designed 8 years ago but since then, hallway carpets have become worn and dirty, housekeeping in the common areas seems spotty. Flower boxes have disappeared, and generously available wicker seating on the porch is gone. The broken window glass in the main sitting room and decline in the condition of Perkins house exterior are further evidence of inattention. There is deteriorating grout in the shower stall and obvious brown stains on the marble bathroom floor. The screen door to Perkins House slams for lack of a proper opener. We understand Jack, sadly, passed away, and covid19 has required certain accommodations. But it seems like the inn needs a proper refresh to bring it back to former standards.

Response from Julie Van de Graaf, Owner at Pentagoet Inn
Responded Aug 19, 2021
Hi Alicia, Thank you for returning to the Pentagoet Inn. I am sorry that your experience here this time was not all that you remembered it to be from your first visit. We’ve had to make necessary changes due to the pandemic and the unforeseen consequences of the subsequent labor shortages. I am now the sole owner and with my small but very loyal staff are doing everything in our power to move forward in a positive way, providing the best possible guest experience. As one of the original steamship hotels built in 1894, maintenance and the upkeep of our buildings is a priority. As the steward of this historic building, caring for it is something we have always taken very seriously. We actually did a tremendous amount of work on the property during the pandemic as the main inn was closed for all of the 2020 season. We replaced the roof, the exterior of the inn and its porches were repainted, the deckings redone, the fire escape rebuilt. The Perkins House was slated to be painted this spring; we removed the large tree by the front steps so the painters could work and we would then re-landscape as part of the plan. Our painter got very sick from Covid in the spring and our project has been moved to the end of August, we’re hoping. The window boxes and the additional wicker seating (half is still there) fell to changes because of Covid and the lack of staff. We have been trying to focus instead on our extensive perennial gardens this year. We hope you will consider visiting us again in the future as our lives return to more normalcy, Julie

Excellent service, wonderful staff, great breakfasts, a variety all week. Stayed in room #3, which has a balcony on the front. Great place to eat breakfast and have morning and evening coffees. Central to most everywhere. 30 minutes to Bar Harbor, 30 minutes to Bangor, and 30 minutes to Stonnington, Maine.

We loved this inn. The rooms are very cute and the builds are on picturesque streets in a wonderful seaside town. My girlfriend loved loved loved the baker that makes us treats and breakfast daily, she was so excited to get to our room each night and for breakfast in bed each morning. We stayed in this inn to explore Camden, Bangor, and Acadia. The location worked out great we enjoyed driving through the area to explore.

Visited for 2 vacations.The rooms are lovely. Breakfast is light fare and a selection of hot also. We enjoyed eating on the porch in the mornings. The restaurant on the premises is noteworthy. The owner, Jack will personally guide you as concierge in the morning to great places to visit. If you like history Castine has plenty including a lighthouse. Julie's Bird Song garden is a pleasure to stroll through. Bikes are also available. A gem!
