he Manor Inn, built by a 19th century "rusticator" during an era of grand summer homes, sits on a hillside with great views of the Penobscot Bay on Maine's coast.
Castine's residual charm, with fine examples of early 18th century Federal & Georgian architecture from the prosperous era of shipbuilding, drew summer "rusticators" in the late 19th and early 20th century as it does now!
Although built as a summer "cottage" for a single family, the Manor, once called "Allview," has been a place for summer visitors since the 1940's, which makes a long history of sharing the spendor of an era with many a traveler. Converted to a bed and breakfast inn in the 1990's, all guest rooms have private bathrooms and several have working fireplaces. Most rooms have views of the bay and the inn offers very large guest rooms, complimentary full breakfast and a pub and restaurant. In Castine, you can go for long walks, kayak, ride bikes visit our museums, or find a bench close to the water and watch the beautiful boats go by.
