Maine Coast Bed and Breakfast
Stay Where Haute Meets Historic
Surrounded by the Beauty of MidCoast Maine
Escape to the far reaches of New England and settle in at Captain Nickels Inn for an unforgettable Maine Coast bed and breakfast experience. Built in 1874 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the inn is named after its first owner, Captain Albert V. Nickels, who resided here with his wife Elizabeth and their eight children.
The inn offers an elegant and exceptional retreat with 180-degree views of Penobscot Bay in the charming town of Searsport – just a few nautical miles between Camden and Bar Harbor. The inn has the distinction of being part of the East Main Street Historic District, a collection of five properties with Italianate architectural influences, all built by ship captains over a span of 15 years beginning in 1860.
