Captain Nickels Inn ~ Summer 2020

We are so happy to welcome our guests to the inn again!

 

We are extremely thankful that our fabulous restaurants and our gorgeous National Parks have been opening!  It is starting to look a lot like a summer in Maine!  Maybe we have to stay just a bit farther away from everyone than we would like – but hey!  it is Maine… we like to spread out a bit anyways.
