Back in the day, there were many inns and hotels along Maine's coast. Unfortunately, we're one of the few that remain. As a nod to our history, which dates back to the 1880s, we have thoughtfully restored the Inn to recapture its classic beauty and special place in the island community.
Chebeague Island is the largest island in Casco Bay. At 3.5 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, running the island’s outer loop makes for a great morning workout.
The Inn sits on 2.5 acres of oceanfront land. Facing Casco Bay to the west, we promise you’ll experience some of the best sunsets you’ve ever seen. Located within the surrounding grounds of the hotel, you'll find much to enjoy.

The Inn was built in the 1880's and was originally called The Hillcrest Hotel. In the early 1900s, the hotel burned down (ask us about The Legend of Charlie) and was rebuilt in the 1920s. The name changed to Chebeague Island Inn in 2000.
Over the years the Inn has played an important role in the island community and takes pride in being part of the island's storied history of sailing and architecture. Many of the Greek revival homes on the island were built by stone sloopers, men who carried ballast for the sailing ships of 19th century America and later granite for many of the country's most spectacular buildings, including the Washington Monument.
Chebeague (pron: shuh-Beeg) is one of Maine's most beautiful islands, currently home to 400 year-round residents, many whose families have been here for generations and many summer families.
