Our History

A Splendid Setting

Visualize your ceremony under our towering weeping willow, overlooking the pond on a warm, sunny day. Make your way to the back patio for cocktails, and settle down in our lovingly restored 1820s barn for dinner and dancing with loved ones.

There is beauty in simplicity, making the barn a stunning setting for an intimate weekend getaway where friends and family can gather to celebrate your love. Guests will bask in the natural light of our inviting space, surrounded by antique wood etched with history. A cozy loft on the second floor includes a large, elevated deck that overlooks the lush coastal grounds. Watch as the sun dips beneath the countryside and enjoy a peaceful ending to your perfect day.‍

"We spent the weekend at the Squire Tarbox Inn for a small family wedding. The venue was their absolutely stunning 1800s barn and the inn itself is a very cool building. From the serene pond to the hiking trails out back, the natural beauty of Maine is wonderfully showcased at the Squire Tarbox Inn. I hope we are able to return here in the future with our family for a weekend getaway!"
