Guests who have concerns about cancellation may want to consider Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption Insurance against unforeseen circumstances, including illness, airline cancellations, inclement weather, etc. Please note – because of our intimate size, cancellations affect us significantly. Once you book a room, it is held for YOU, meaning, we turn away all other requests for that room. For this reason, we strictly adhere to our cancellation policy and offer no exceptions.

Liquor License

Our bed and breakfast has a full Liquor License, which means that it is illegal for guests to bring their own alcoholic beverages into our common areas, or to the restaurant, wine bar, or terrace. You may, of course, enjoy these in the privacy of your own room. For your convenience, a full list of our available curated wine, bubbles, and craft beers is available in your room as well as at the front desk. We would love to serve you.


We are a non-smoking and non-vaping inn. Smoking of ANY sorts is prohibited in rooms, common areas, on the porches and patios, as well as on the grounds.


We love pets, (trust us!) but we cannot accommodate them at our hotel. Service dogs with service papers, leashes, and service vests are of course welcome; please let us know ahead of time if you are bringing a service dog.


Captain Nickels Inn warmly welcomes all guests, however, due to the historic significance of our 1874 Maine Coast property, the Inn is not wheelchair accessible. Removal of necessary physical barriers for accessibility are not readily achievable as such removal would threaten or destroy the historic significance of the property. These barriers include:

  • Numerous steps
  • No elevator
  • Narrow hallways and doorways

We work to ensure every guest who wishes to visit can do so regardless of their physical abilities. Among the ways we comply with ADA:

  1. We ensure that individuals with disabilities can make reservations during the same hours and in the same manner as individuals without disabilities.
  2. We have identified and described the features in our bed and breakfast and guest rooms in detail to allow individuals with disabilities to determine whether our B&B meets their needs.
  3. We ensure that accessible guest rooms are held for use by individuals with disabilities until all other guest rooms of that type have been rented.
  4. We guarantee that the specific rooms, once reserved, are held for the reserving customer. We make reasonable efforts with third-party reservation systems to make all rooms available through at least some of these services and they must provide these third-party services with information concerning the features of the hotel and rooms.
  5. Guests with legitimate service animals as defined in the ADA will be provided access to all areas of the inn afforded to those without service animals. We do ask that you call ahead so we can plan on welcoming your service animal appropriately.

For special accommodation needs, please call us directly at 207-548-1104 so we can help you determine the best guest room to ensure you have a comfortable arrival and enjoyable stay.
