A Historic Seaside Resort on Penobscot Bay

Specializing in picture-perfect Maine getaways for serenity seekers and adventurers alike

The Oakland House is a resort colony of vintage cottages, a communal guest house and 130-year old inn on 60 acres on Eggemoggin Reach, overlooking picturesque Pumpkin Island to the right and the iconic Deer Isle Bridge to the left. 

We offer a restorative haven for guests in search of breathtaking sunrises and sunsets, hikes to gorgeous overlooks, cozy nights by the fireplace and silence disturbed only by the call of loons in the nighttime.  

We’re also ideal for restless nature-lovers who come to paddle, hike, bike, fish, sail and explore Acadia National Park…or play tennis, waterski, ride a horse and climb a rock-face. 

Maine = vacation, however you define it, and the Oakland House is at your service.
