Open 7 days a week in the season 0f 2018, Ironbound Inn offers a wonderful Maine lodging experience where our comfortable and welcoming rooms await you after a day exploring Acadia National Park on both Mount Desert Island, or the Schoodic Section of Acadia, near Winter Harbor.

Or if you are traveling from Canada or southern Maine, Ironbound Inn is a welcome respite from a day of traveling where our inviting inn rooms and downstairs restaurant welcome you. Our restaurant offers a wonderful menu of modern American cuisine from appetizers to small plates to full entrees. Our bar adjoins The Sitting Room which is a common room for our inn guests where comfortable couches and furniture await “your tired and your hungry”.

We are proudly associated with the airbnb community where many of our guests use their popular web site to make reservations with IRONBOUND. Our staff works hard to make our guests stay as comfortable and interesting as possible. Here is a recent email we received from airbnb:

“Hi Ironbound,
Your guests are loving what you’re doing! You’ve gotten five 5-star reviews in a row. It takes a lot of work to make such a great impression on travellers, and you’re doing it consistently. Thanks for being a conscientious and welcoming host.
Keep up the fantastic work!
The Airbnb Team”

Ironbound Inn has beautifully appointed rooms where both old world luxury and today’s casual lifestyles merge with comfortable furnishings and interesting decor. Each room has either queen or king sized beds with plush bedding and is accessed through it’s own locked door from an outside, second floor deck. All guest rooms have en suite bathroom, all of which are appointed with quality fixtures, lighting and plush towels. Our comfortable downstairs common area known as The Sitting Room – with book cases and interesting decor – is where guests can relax on comfortable couches and wicker chairs where a enamel stove heats the room on those comfortably chilly Maine evenings. It’s an inviting space to play a round of backgammon or chess, read a book or socialize with other guests.

Start your day by sitting outside on your own deck with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and enjoy a summer morning in Maine overlooking the towering white pine trees and tended, manicured gardens. Or, after a day of exploring, bask in the late afternoon sun under the canopy of towering pines with a libation from our restaurant bar. The property adjoins the Crabtree Neck Conservation Trust where a network of quiet walking trails take you into old growth woods with lush ferns, moss and an abundance of birds and is a wonderful place to begin or end your day.

Each room has private baths, thermostatically controlled air conditioning and heat, and comfortable chairs for relaxing. Interesting artwork and decorative objects adorn the walls.

A continental fare of freshly brewed coffee and quality teas, pastries, cereals, bagels, and fresh fruit is available from 8-9:30 in The Sitting Room downstairs. Maps and other information are available for our inn guests to use.

We offer personalized lobster boat excusions where guests can either hoist their own lobster from Frenchman Bay overlooking Acadia for dinner prepared in our acclaimed restaurant. Or you can get a boat ride to a quiet harbor where the BEST lobster shack prepares your dinner. Reservation only. Charged separately from room charges. Inquire on arrival.

Complimentary wifi throughout the property. No in room television.

Well behaved children and pets are welcome in designated rooms. We do not have cribs or playpens. Pets are not permitted to be left alone in the rooms during the day when guests are away from the property.
