The Oakland House is a resort colony of vintage cottages, a communal guest house and 130-year old inn on 60 acres on Eggemoggin Reach, overlooking picturesque Pumpkin Island to the right and the iconic Deer Isle Bridge to the left. We offer a restorative haven for guests in search of breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, hikes to gorgeous overlooks, cozy nights by the fireplace and silence disturbed only by the call of loons in the nighttime. We’re also ideal for restless nature-lovers who come to paddle, hike, bike, fish, sail and explore Acadia National Park. Or play tennis, waterski, ride a horse and climb a rock-face.
The Oakland House’s new owners are thrilled to announce that for the first time in more than a decade, there are now (newly renovated) rooms available in the historic inn. Each is unique with a view of the ocean or the gardens, in varying sizes to accommodate the single travelers to a family of six.
Complimentary daily breakfast is included (for inn guests only), as is newly upgraded internet service. Guests enjoy all the amenities of the seaside cottages, the hiking trails and private beaches, and may also enjoy the inn itself: relaxing in the porch rockers or studying up on local history in the peaceful library/lounge. Second-floor rooms are available for booking now. The third floor is still under renovation.
Each of our eight cottages has its own personal charm. Some sit right on the shoreline, others perch overlooking the Reach, two are dog-friendly, all have cozy granite fireplaces and vintage Maine appointments.
Our communal guest house has a following all its own among travelers seeking no-frills but comfortable visit in which they are likely make friends among fellow guests. The broad porch overlooking the lawns and gardens are especially welcoming, and the well-appointed shared kitchen encourages home cooking.
