This Maine Inn & restaurant, a charming Bed & Breakfast listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a quiet country Inn in the center of Midcoast Maine. It is surrounded by fields, stone walls and woods. A peaceful salt-water marsh with rowboat and dock beckons beyond the pasture while several barns house goats and chickens. The Inn is located away from tourist crowds but situated conveniently for coastal adventures. Our Maine lodging is also pet friendly and we love to have other dogs visiting. This Boothbay Harbor area Maine bed & breakfast combines the best of 18th- and 19th-century characters. The original house was constructed in 1763, and the original boards and timbers remain today. The newer addition goes back to 1820 and houses the parlor and the 4 larger more formal bedrooms, all with working fireplaces. The Midcoast Maine Inn & Restaurant has eleven guestrooms, each with a private bathroom. Combining the charm of antiquity with modern comforts, each of the rooms is adorned with handmade quilts and antiques, all reflecting New England style and tradition. The main house rooms, where the Squire lived, are more formal, with high ceilings, decorative moldings, and wood-burning fireplaces. The Carriage Barn sitting bedrooms in the attached 1820s barn are more rustic, with exposed beams and a cozy, country feel.
Breakfast is served each morning in the 1763 dining room, or you can move out onto the screened in deck, and includes freshly baked scones, home made bread & yogurt, fresh fruits, juices, cereals, freshly brewed coffees, a variety of teas. In the evening, linger over a cocktail or a glass of wine on the screened-in deck while watching the sun set over the tree-tops, or enjoy making new friends in one of our cozy public rooms.
Activities at The Inn
At The Squire Tarbox Inn & Restaurant, you can be as busy or as relaxed as you like. The Squire Tarbox Inn offers a wonderful journey into countryside simplicity. There are 2 preserves on Westport Island open to the public where you can go for a good walk. The Inn's extensive grounds are perfect for birding, and on rare occasions you might even spot a moose, deer or river otter.
During your stay, take some time to look around the Inn’s farm. We also still get additional items from The Tarbox Farm which is nearby. A brood of chickens lay the fresh eggs for breakfast.
