The Asticou Inn

Welcome to the Asticou Inn Virtual Tour! The Asticou Inn is located just outside of Acadia National Park in Maine, USA. Situated on Mount Desert Island in the town of Northeast Harbor, the Inn was originally built in 1883. It burned down in 1899 and the current building dates from 1901. The current Inn building survived the great fire of 1947 that burned most of the historic hotels and homes in the area. The Asticou Inn is open Spring through Fall yearly.

If you're looking for a hotel that still retains all of it's original charm, the Asticou fits the bill. Additions in the early 1900's changed the exterior slightly and added rooms to the Inn. However the Inn's exterior has changed little in the last 60 years. Interior remodeling has enlarged many of the rooms, primarily by removing walls to combine adjacent rooms rather than relocating walls. Careful remodeling and restoration have allowed the Inn to retain it's historic charm, with polished wood floors and the craftsmanship of a bygone era.

Much more detail on the history, architecture, and folklore related to the Asticou Inn will be presented on various pages throughout the virtual tour that follows. We will even explore some behind the scenes items not normally seen by the public.
