127 East Main Street
Searsport, ME 04974

Captain A.V. Nickels Inn offers luxury accommodations in an historic setting. The Inn, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1874 by Captain Nickels as a gift to his bride. It is a breathtaking building sitting on 3 meandering acres directly on the island-studded Penobscot Bay half way between the beautiful towns of Camden and Bar Harbor. The Inn is often cited as one off the most photographed inns on the Maine coast. To "create a memory" for each guest, they are treated to a level of luxury and attention to detail usually only seen in exclusive small hotels or inns in Europe. All rooms are furnished with European and American antiques, art, china and decorative touches creating the sophisticated air of a fine country home. Roaring fires on cool evenings, wicker on the lovely front porch, and lawn furniture by the water adds ambiance that invites guests to relax and enjoy the beautiful views.

MAKE IT AN HISTORIC STAY is a human-curated, invitation only presentation of select historic lodging accommodations, including bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges in the United States.

Historic lodging facilities (Stays) are demonstrably significant to world history with respect to their architecture, engineering, archeology or culture, as well as their location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling or association.

Historic bed & breakfasts, inns, hotels and lodges offer travelers a truly unique and memorable lodging experience.

They provide visitors a genuine opportunity to connect with the past, while enjoying restful lodging, excellent cuisine, gracious hospitality and more.

Sadly, countless historically significant structures have been (and continue to be) lost forever.

Many of those that endure, do so largely because of the vision, passion and dedication of devoted and enterprising proprietors, companies and others, who (usually after great effort and expense) offer them as living, interactive lodging facilities reflecting the rich historical fabric within which they are woven.

When you travel, use to discover Historic Stays in and around your destination(s).
