Spring in Castine

Spring

May is a quiet time to visit before the summer season officially kicks off. The shops and galleries are brimming with new and wonderful treasures, and area inns offer value packages with delicious dining options. All the outdoor activities  — golf, tennis, sailing, kayaking, biking and strolling the beaches — await your active enjoyment. 

June is a great time for family reunions, weddings and just getting away to enjoy nature. Restaurants, bakeries, pubs, lobster shacks, ice-cream stands and farmers markets are geared up for just about any culinary experience that you can imagine. The historical society, the library and the Wilson Museum offer amazing exhibits, lectures, demonstrations and tours starting in spring and throughout the summer.

With three charming inns, cottages and beautiful rental homes, you’re sure to find a place that will exceed your expectations. So, we invite you to discover a place that is calm and peaceful, where the pace slows down just a notch. A place where you will see people smile, enjoy an ice-cream, and relish being part of a community with an old-fashioned American vibe.
