Located on just under 40 acres and only 11 miles from the light sands of Pemaquid Beach, the historic Down Easter Inn, with roots dating back to 1790 and its Greek Revival completion built in 1850, is a part of the National Register of Historic Places. This stunning inn was run by the same family who welcomed and hosted guests for 50 years, from 1968 until 2018. The lush expanse of lawn is perfect for large wedding tents, summer games of croquet, or relaxing in adirondack chairs. As you enter under the impressive colonnaded porch that runs the length of the front of the inn, you step into rooms with high ceilings, harmonious and serene colors, and period furnishings that transport you to the Victorian era. The inn boasts 3 floors of 9 beautifully decorated bedrooms, with 5 full bathrooms, and 7 fireplaces. Through the kitchen, complete with a butler's pantry and large laundry room, you enter the reception area with a spacious 500+ sq ft screened porch, overlooking the back lawn, apple trees, and forest. Beyond the reception area are the 22 newer inn rooms that were built in the 80's, each with its own bathroom. Just across the curving driveway, beside a detached 2 car-space storage garage, is the 2 bedroom owner's-quarters cottage with a living room with a cozy propane stove, kitchen, full bath, lovely porch, dining area, and spacious full basement. The inn and cottage share access to the common area waterfront on the Damariscotta River, just across the street on the point on Westview Road. The possibilities are truly endless with this enormous property. 1 hour and 10 minutes from the Portland International Jetport, 26 minutes to the gorgeous Boothbay Harbor peninsula and the gorgeous botanical gardens, 5 minutes to our local golf club, 28 minutes to the Brunswick Amtrak station to catch a 3 hour train to Boston. The area is known for its world-famous oysters, restaurants, lighthouses, sailing, lakes, campgrounds, art galleries, cultural experiences, to name a few.
