“The Closest You’ll find To A Bed On The Ocean….!”
Cape Arundel Inn was built as a stately summer cottage in 1895. We are a unique property. Operating in a neighborhood of grand and stately summer mansions, sitting high on a knoll we are afforded breathtaking views of the sea and crashing surf.
Join Chef Pierre Gignac at Ocean, offering Ocean inspired fine cuisine, beautifully presented, and enhanced by the fresh sea air and stunning views. Enjoy early evening cocktails at the bar or lounge, followed by dinner in the dining room. Sample native Maine delicacies from the sea mingled with the freshest vegetables and local proteins.
Our views stretch from Goat Island light house to the shore line of Wells, Ogunquit and York. Off to one side sits Walkers Point and beyond it Cape Porpoise. Leave our front door to walk, jog, bike along Ocean Avenue to Colony Beach, Spouting Rock and Blowing Cave. Find a niche in the rocks and burrow in with a book. Smell the sea, feel the breeze, relax, contemplate, renew, find inspiration.
The porch is wonderful and wraps the building. It is a terrific place to settle into the wicker furniture and to take in the sights, sounds and aromas of the sea that stretches before us. Cape Arundel Inn sits high on a coastal knoll and affords its guests sweeping and incomparable views of the Atlantic. In the morning lobster boats ply their trade in our front yard. Throughout the day schooners cross before us on their scenic tours. Off on the far horizon tankers ply their route between Boston and Portland.
Pleasure craft of every description, often including “Fidelity”, the power boat of President Bush, “The First Fisherman”, fill the sea only steps away from our front porch.
OK – YES – all of our rooms but two have awesome views of the presidential estate. An oceanfront bed and breakfast and restaurant with post card views of a presidential estate. No where else in this world!
An old proverb speaks to standing on the edge of the ocean and looking out to sea. When one does Then all of one’s cares and worries are behind them.
The main house is a shingle style summer “cottage” complete with turret. Seven rooms, all large and all with sitting areas. The views from all but one are indescribable and the “all but one” isn’t bad either. Some offer ceiling fans, bedding is mixed depending on the room, queens, or kings.
