The Carriage House Inn is considered one of Maine's most photographed homes and is a genuine historic landmark. The Inn is surrounded by 2 acres of gracious, park-like grounds with ocean views. The Inn has stalwartly stood by the Bay since 1874, and has been home to a wealthy sea captain and his ancestors; a legendary Impressionist painter named Waldo Peirce; and served as a garrison for army officers during WWII.
Located in the quaint town of Searsport known for it's wealth of antique shops, a gorgeous State Park, and the awesome Penobscot Marine Museum, it is the ideal Mid-Coast location from which to take easy day trips along Route 1 to Camden or Bar Harbor. We also offer our guests exclusive Packages with Old Quarry Ocean Adventures, one of the best ocean recreation facilities in Downeast Maine. Come escape and rejuvinate in a truly stunning setting.
To create a very personal and private experience for our guests, we have chosen to limit the rooms we rent to three. Each of these guest rooms is tastefully decorated with antiques and artifacts of the 19th century. Each offers a very different feel, but all offer comfort, intimacy and a sense that you have stepped back in time. The rooms have 12 foot ceilings and spacious private bathrooms.
Are you looking for a paranormal experience? The Inn is most definitely spiritually inhabited as validated by the paranormal experts the East Coast Ghost Trackers who did 4 investigations of the Inn. Our spirits are friendly and fascinating.
