Timeless Maine at its Finest 

Experience the authentic charm of Tenants Harbor. Our historic seaside inn is located in a small fishing and boating village on a rural peninsula. It's the perfect location to discover Maine's scenic coast, working harbors, and culturally-rich Rockland and Camden areas. 

Whether you want to explore the rocky shores, visit art galleries, kayak secluded coves, head to Monhegan island for the day, or search for the best lobster roll, the St. George peninsula has what you are looking for. Start your day watching the sunrise over the water and enjoying our locally-inspired, renowned breakfast on the porch. Wind down overlooking our picturesque harbor or dining at our cozy pub. 

The Sail Loft and the Captain's House have glorious views of the ocean and outlying islands. All rooms have comfortable furniture, charming/nautical decor, a private bathroom, and modern ammenities. Guests are invited to relax and spend time in our common areas - the deck, wrap-around porch, spacious lobby and lookout room.

With its simple elegance and warm hospitality, the East Wind Inn is a natural choice to host retreats, classes, meetings and special events. Our spacious lawn faces a breathtaking harbor with unobstructed views. The Lookout, Wan-e-set Restaurant and Quarry Tavern offer flexible indoor and outdoor options for events.

The East Wind Inn is centrally located on the extensive Maine Coast, just a 90-minute drive from Portland and 2 and ½ hour drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Whether you are working your way along the beautiful coast or looking for a central location to explore Maine, the East Wind team is ready to welcome you.
