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.
Our boutique inn is surrounded by 12 acres of pastoral farmland, heritage woods, and a tranquil salt marsh. Built in 1763 and lovingly restored in 2018, our historic property is a peaceful retreat. Situated only fifteen minutes from major attractions in Wiscasset and the Boothbay region.
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.
