Samuel Tarbox (1780-1861) became known as the Squire probably because of his wealth and stature as a business man and founding father of the Town of Westport. He was born in Litchfield, ME. In 1806, soon after marrying Mary "Polly" Brown, he bought the land on Westport from Stephen Parsons.
Yes, we do have WiFi, but due to being on an island in Maine, we often find that our WiFi signal doesn't come through all the time. We have added several Nodes to the inn to assist with WiFi. Most people are able to get work done while here.
Anchoring the line of buildings that make up the Tarbox Inn is the federal style homestead built by Samuel Tarbox ca. 1825. An expansion soon after at the back of the house served as the kitchen until 1956. The oldest part of the house is the 1763 ell, which was originally situated on a hill to the north of the property.
We gladly welcome well-behaved children! Most of our rooms, with the exception of room 7, are only able to accommodate a total of two guests max. Up to 4 guests can be accommodated in room 7 but we ask that the children are age appropriate to climb a ladder into a loft space.
Yes, we do require event insurance for private events and weddings. Policies are typically very affordable and can be added to your homeowners or renters policy. There are also third party options as well.
At this time we do not have a restaurant at the inn, however, there are several local restaurants we think you’ll love! We've provided a list of local recommendations in our local guide. Be sure to check out our events page for pop-up dinners and our summer pizza night schedule.
