The Oakland House Seaside Resort

$$$ | 435 Herrick Rd., ME, 04617, USA

The coastal acreage on which the main inn, with its recently renovated rooms, and cottages are set was an original land grant by Great Britain’s King George III in 1767 to John and Hannah Billings, direct ascendants of the current innkeepers, Rick and Robin Littlefield. The property has been a working farm, a quarry, an ice business, and, for the past 130 years, a gracious summer colony boasting old-fashioned Maine hospitality. There are private beaches, access to hiking trails, and on-site kayak rentals.
