The Tides Inn is a cozy A-frame cottage on a private beach overlooking Penobscot Bay, just eight miles from downtown Castine. Relax on the private deck and view stunning sunsets or fall asleep to the rhythm of the waves. Spot seals, osprey, eagles, porpoise, and more. The view includes Camden Hills, Sandy Point, Hersey Retreat, Isleboro, and Penobscot Bay.
We’re located across from Fort Point State Park and Fort Point Lighthouse. Just seven miles away, historic Castine is a charming waterside town with restaurants and shops. Drive to nearby Acadia National Park, Blue Hill, Ellsworth, and a number of other popular destinations for outdoor activities, shopping, or dining.
Ideal for a family with two children or a romantic getaway, this rustic retreat has a fully supplied kitchen, a small bathroom, and a living room with sofa bed.
We love animals but regretfully cannot accommodate pets. The cottage is smoke-free but guests are welcome to smoke outside.
As we open up the cottage for another year, we wanted to thank each and every one of our guests who took time to give us feedback, both here and personally. We have incorporated virtually every comment in our plans: we have new steps to upstairs, have added a wall and door between the rooms upstairs, and have even added the cheese grater and teapot.We thought of enlarging the space, but zoning and our concern of loosing the cozy feel limit us.Thank-you all again.Jeff & Nancy
