The Blue Hill Inn, located in the sea coast village of Blue Hill, Maine at the "head of the Bay", has provided lodging accommodations and bed and breakfast since 1840.

We are close to Castine, Brooklin, Sedgwick, and Deer Isle, and 45 minutes from Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor.

Blue Hill, Maine, a place to relax, a place to vacation.

Visit a quiet & scenic place on the coast where you can sail, cruise or kayak past the lighthouses of Penobscot Bay, shop for antiques, sample food & cooking from local farmer's & fishermen, attend a chamber music concert & then return to a bed & breakfast of distinction called the Blue Hill Inn, where hors d'oeuvres & wine (Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence) are served by the fireplace & whose priority is individualized guest attention. Enjoy the special luxury of our Cape House suite, a private setting for a romantic honeymoon.

Located on an acre of land near the center of the village of Blue Hill and a block from the head of Blue Hill Bay, the Inn is one of 76 structures registered on the National Register of Historic Places. Mature trees, a perennials garden, and a small grove of apple trees enhance the grounds.

There are 11 guest rooms in the Inn including a 3rd floor suite of two rooms accommodating two or three persons.

Richard & Nancy Woodworth of INN SPOTS & SPECIAL PLACES say our "breakfast is a culinary event!" It is served each morning between 8 and 9:30 AM in our sun-filled dining room.. Freshly cut fruit, juices and just baked sweet breads accompany a choice of four cooked entrees, and or homemade, low-fat granola. Blueberry pancakes, Belgian waffles with strawberries, brie and sweet roasted red pepper omelets, and amaretto french toast are favorites among guests. Locally raised ingredients, including Maine Maple Syrup, are featured, as well as, coffee from Maine roasted coffee beans. Food allergies and restrictions are easily accommodated.

Afternoon pastry and hot and cold beverages are provided on a buffet in the breakfast room. Tea service with a freshly brewed pot of tea is prepared individually.

Hors d'oeuvres are served in the living room or in the garden from 6 PM to 7 PM each evening. Selections highlight Maine seafood, local and imported cheeses. Wines by the glass, as well as, a full line of fine liquors are available.

The Inn and its dining was featured across the country on the PBS award winning series, Country Inn Cooking with Gail Greco.

For six years the Inn received the Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence for "... one of the world's outstanding restaurant wine lists."

Selections from that list of more than 100 are still available, including some older bordeaux, burgundies, and hermitage. Wine loving guests will find treasures in the list. Recent finds included a 1998 Beaucastel, a 1990 Hermitage LaChapelle, and a 1960 Barca Vehla.

Individualized guest attention is our priority. Custom packages for sailing, kayaking, chamber music concerts, and jazz concerts, as well as, the preparation of special menus to accommodate individual food allergies, preferences, or restrictions may be arranged. Hors d' oeuvre hour, turn down services, and fresh towels twice a day are a few of the special touches offered. Adding to the attentive atmosphere, innkeepers Don and Mary Hartley personally oversee the details of each guest's stay.

"Blue Hill is the kind of coastal village - scenic and secluded, yet with fine cuisine and culture to spare - that travelers dream of finding when they come to Maine. And the Blue Hill Inn is the kind of classic New England hostelry they hope to discover once they arrive..."

-Downeast Magazine
