A Lovely Retreat Close to Many Fun Lobster Activities!
Located on an acre of land in the center of the village of Blue Hill and a block from the head of Blue Hill Bay, the inn, built in 1835, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Innkeeper Sarah Pebworth and the staff of the inn will make suggestions, assist with itineraries, help with directions, and make reservations. They are familiar with the area and can direct guests to great boating, live music, beautiful picnic spots, husband-friendly shopping, and delicious lobster rolls. A Federal period building, the Blue Hill Inn has eleven guest rooms, a sun-filled dining room, and two comfortable parlors. It retains many of its original features, including clapboards, nine over six windows, wide pumpkin pine floor boards, and six fireplaces.
This charming inn is perfectly located to explore seaside villages like Castine and Stonington. Plan a wonderful lobster adventure and cruise the islands and bays of Downeast Maine with aboard Miss Lizzie, offering scenic excursions, Monday through Saturday during the summer season. You’ll learn about Maine’s lobster fishery as crews haul our string of lobster traps. The Captain will explain the techniques and a few of the secrets of the men and women who earn their livings on the waters of coastal Maine. Cruises last for about one hour and fifteen minutes, leaving from the Isle au Haut Ferry Company on Sea Breeze Avenue in Stonington.
Why we love it: They offer Winter lodging!
