“Incredibel common rooms, great chocolate chip cookies”
Reviewed August 6, 2008

I had the chance to visit the Newcastle Inn yesterday and just loved it. I've never been to an inn that had so much common space. I think there's just about a living room for each guest! The sun porch has a great view of the water. The pub with its adjoining living room is really welcoming, and how nice to have a pub right on the premises. There is a parlor with a hand painted floor and not one but two dining rooms too. The deck has the best view of the cove, and is a great place for breakfast in the morning.

I had a chance to see a number of the guest rooms, which were beautifully decorated, in keeping with the historic inn, but still offering great modern amenities like gas fireplaces, TVs and AC. I think I liked the cottage suite the best - it's multi-level and so cozy, and pet-friendly too.

Julie, the new owner, is wonderful. She makes the very best chocolate chip crunch cookies I've ever tasted. She understands the need among we cookie monsters for BIG cookies. You must try one.

My wife and I stayed at The Newcastle Inn in June, 2008. The Inn is located in a quiet area close to town. The accommodations are very clean, charming and comfortable. Julie and her dog, Dolce, are wonderful hosts. Julie makes an omelet that is to die for. The deck and beautiful gardens have river views and provide a wonderful place to relax with a good book or just enjoy the quiet setting. The location is a short walk to town and some nice restaurants and shops. Try King Eider’s Pub. The Damariscotta River oysters are fabulous and they serve one of the meatiest and best BBQ rack of ribs that I’ve ever had. The location is also a great jumping off point for day trips to explore Boothbay Harbor, Camden and many other wonderful spots along the Maine Coast. I read a negative review posted in 2005. However, it is important to know that the Inn is under new management since then. We plan to return later this summer for another visit.

This is the best kept secret on the coast of Maine! Just spent 3 days at the Newcastle Inn -- all of the rooms are so cozy, spotless, and welcoming, the public rooms are elegant but comfortable (great deck for sunny days and a great screened in porch for curling up with a book), and the breakfasts are scrumptious. Julie, the new owner, is so helpful and will make your B&B experience complete. Don't pass up a chance to stay here if you are in this part of Maine. Great location -- and the town of Damariscotta is adorable!
