A reasonable drive from nearby large cities (4 hours from Boston and 8 hours from New York City), Victorian by the Sea Is a perfect coastal New England getaway. Located just one mile south of Lincolnville Beach and four miles north of Camden, ME, the inn is secluded, yet close to fine dining, hiking, lighthouses and all area attractions. Mid-coast Maine has it all: a thriving arts scene, historic museums and homes; hiking trails including the summit trail to Mount Battie in the Camden Hills State Park: kayaking, sailing and swimming on the ocean or clear water lakes; shopping for antiques, art and crafts, wineries and local breweries; great food from casual seaside takeouts to farm-to-table cuisine and fine dining.

But don’t think you need to leave the property to experience fine dining! Innkeeper Caroline is creative and talented in the kitchen, preparing “breakfast from scratch” each and every morning of your stay. Whenever possible, ingredients from the organic garden located on the inn’s property or local fresh vegetables, berries and herbs provide truly amazing flavors. A morning’s menu may include Swiss Birchermuesli made with seasonal fruit or fruit parfait with Grand Marnier, Maine maple-glazed pears, fresh vegetable or crab quiche, spinach-feta/ham omelettes, or wild Maine blueberry sour cream coffeecake.

Victorian by the Sea is the perfect destination for relaxation, sightseeing, and enjoying a true New England escape.

Innkeeper’s Corner:

What a wonderful season it was! It’s been such a pleasure to welcome guests from around the world. Beautiful views, great conversations, celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries, honeymooners and baby-mooners….so rewarding and such FUN!  

It was a comfortably warm summer and beautiful autumn, mid 70s right through most of October. Gorgeous crimson sunrises, spectacular harvest moons and firefly nights….lobster dinners drenched in drawn butter, it doesn’t get much better than this!

Breakfast  at the Victorian was always something special, but as the new owner and innkeeper of the Victorian, I’ve enjoyed integrating my unique Swiss/California culinary skills  with the best of New England traditional breakfast fare. The results are in – its a winning combination!

Looking forward to an amazing 2018 season – we will reopen by mid April. If you’re planning a coastal Maine trip – a romantic getaway, small family reunion, special interest weekend, or an organizational retreat, we are offering some special incentives.
