 1794 Watchtide... by the Sea
Searsport, Maine
Web Site: www.watchtide.com


The oldest operating Inn in the area , “Watchtide” was  established in 1917 as the College T House - and then was the College Club Inn, (as  listed on the National Register).

Many Presidential wives were guests in this charming Inn , including Eleanor Roosevelt who was a frequent visitor .  Written in the annals of the family album, Eleanor liked  “the cleanliness, the good food, the magnificent view of Penobscot Bay and the lack of publicity”

Hospitality traditions which we are pleased to continue to this day.

Situated  in the country near Moose Point State Park - 1 mile from the village of Searsport and 3 miles to Belfast - away from tourist & town congestion -  making us the perfect spot for interesting and easy day trips to most anywhere  from Pemiquid Point to Schoodic Point - and inland to Bangor & Augusta.

All bedrooms are air conditioned and have private baths, most with king beds.

The Eleanor Roosevelt Suite on the 2nd floor, with a grand view of Penobscot Bay, a king bed, and a 2 person Jacuzzi with skylight.

The grand first floor General Knox Suite features a magnificent antique mirrored backbar as the headboard for this high king bed, a fireplace;  a sitting/dressing room   and  whirlpool tub with unique shower in the charming bathroom.
 
Our unique breakfast fare is next to none  and  we try to facilitate special diets , including vegetarian and vegan.

We’ll help plan your day - be it shopping  in the area - antiquing (Searsport is the antique capitol of Maine)  , hiking or kayaking, sailing on the bay or the ultimate romantic day and finishing at one of our many unique & fine restaurants .

Come, watch the tides,  let us indulge you in life’s little luxuries because...we love to spoil our guests!
