The Inn began life as a nineteenth-century sail loft, part of a working boatyard. Occasional town meetings were held there, as well as the village's first Masonic gatherings. In the 1920s, it was converted to an inn—the Wan-e-set—where tourists from Boston, arriving by steamer, spent long summer stays.
This historic seaside inn is located in Tenants Harbor, Maine, a small, working fishing and boating harbor village on a rural peninsula. It is a perfect location to discover Maine's scenic coast, its authentic working harbors as well as the culturally rich Rockland and Camden areas, just a short drive away.
Whether guests want to explore the rocky shores, kayak secluded harbors or the St. George River, or take a nature cruise from nearby Port Clyde, the St. George peninsula has it all. Guests love to relax on the wrap-around porch overlooking the scenic harbor or enjoy the cozy pub.
The East Wind Inn is also centrally located on the extensive Maine Coast, just ninety minutes drive from Portland and 2 and 1⁄2 hours’ drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
The Main Inn has 8 guest rooms with en-suite baths, the lobby/reception, a guest living room, public restrooms, the Wan-e-Set Restaurant with a lovely harbor view and the cozy Tavern with its stone wall and fireplace downstairs. The wrap around porch is a favorite spot for guests from morning through evening.
The Meeting House offers 10 guest rooms with en-suite baths and 1 apartment with kitchen and private deck. This building also has a common guest parlor with a corner section of windows to maximize the view. The wrap porch here is also a favorite spot. And the guest parlor is large for small events or business meetings. All rooms in both buildings are painted and decorated in warm and neutral colors in both buildings.
In addition to the Main Inn and Meeting House, the property includes a wharf and "Chandlery" building right on the shorefront with about 740sf of space. The Chandlery used to be a lobster shack but hasn't been in operation for many years. It would make a fantastic artist studio, meeting room or incredible spot for a spa with a view! There isn't a bad view on the property!
