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!
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!
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. 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.
