The Squire Tarbox Inn is at once an iconic historic homestead and, what a former owner called, “a country inn at the end of a road to nowhere”— his way to describe a restful retreat on acres of lush country fields.
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.
Built in 1763 and lovingly restored in 2018, our historic property is a peaceful retreat into nature for guests, while situated only 15 minutes from major attractions in Wiscasset and the Boothbay region.
