"Best of the Region"

"Away from the throngs of tourists, the eastern shore of Penobscot Bay offers stunning views..."

Metroland, August, 2002

A warm tradition in Down East hospitality for more than 100 years! Oakland House Seaside Resort is a handsome 50 acre compound of family-sized cottages, bed and breakfast styled Shore Oaks Seaside Inn, and a fine dining restaurant stretching along a half-mile of peaceful Eggemoggin Reach shorefront. What an idyllic location for this Century-old retreat. The views are spectacular!

The Century-old Oakland House hotel houses the 4 dining rooms, including one for families with children.
One of 15 cottages, Boathouse Cottage was once the boathouse for Shore Oaks.Just as guests did a hundred years ago, so do guests today enjoy the same privacy, trails for hiking, ocean and lake beaches from which to swim and kayak, and space to dream...to say nothing of the sheer delight in the scents and feel of this coastal paradise.

A Five-course dinner awaits you at the Oakland House Restaurant.Today, the 250-year-old Oakland House Hotel houses a restaurant where guests are served wonderful five-course dinners on some of great-grandmother's antique china. It is a fine dining experience with bouquets of fresh flowers from the garden. The daily menu has a selection of entrées with choices from both land and sea. Fresh produce and herbs from our own as well as local gardens complement every meal. Fine wine and beer are available as well. The food is exceptional! Click through to see a sample menu which changes on a daily basis.

Shore Oaks Seaside Inn is dressed in the vibrant colors of fall.

Shore Oaks Seaside Inn is a ten bedroom inn just 50 feet from Eggemoggin Reach. Built in 1907, it exudes authentic Arts and Crafts elegance and simplicity. Its little gazebo has been beckoning guests to "get married here" for nearly a century. It is one of the most romantic spots along the coast of Maine!

Romantic and cozy living rooms with woodburning fireplaces.The fifteen cottages vary in style; some are true log cabins with open rafters, others are refined yet relaxed. Most have real wood-burning fireplaces. They are furnished with comfortable "cottage" antiques and most have kitchens or kitchenettes.

Quiet tidal pools grace the shore, complete with starfish and other residents, and seals and loons vocalize offshore.Each season brings beautiful tones to Oakland House and environs. Nearby Walker Pond in fall colors! The flowerbeds are lush with perennials and the fields are peppered with a barrage of wildflowers. Blueberries can be gathered as they ripen. In fall, the local blueberry barrens turn vibrant red! The bald eagles flock to our shores in winter, the days get shorter, and the fireplaces cozier. Spring creeps in with a burst of delicate blooms everywhere, and seals return for their summer playtime in Eggemoggin Reach.
