About Lindenwood Inn
A Century-Old Sea Captain’s Home Turned Inn.
Lindenwood Inn is a bed and breakfast near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine. This former sea captain’s home was built in 1904 for Nettie and Otis Mills. Located near the ocean, just steps from the harbor in the quiet village of Southwest Harbor, this grand historic home is filled with stories. It has served as a place for travelers to call home for more than a century, first as a home, then as an inn beginning in the 1970s. While countless stories have been shared within its walls over the decades, one highlights the Inn’s life as a family home turned inn.
The third floor (now the sought-after Penthouse Suite) once served as the widow’s walk where Nettie Mills would watch for her husband to come home from his seafaring adventures. Just as Nettie welcomed her husband home over the years, eager to discover what worldly stories and treasures he returned with, owners Milan and Jim look forward to welcoming you to the Inn and hearing your stories. They invite you to carry on the home’s tradition by considering It your home away from home in Maine.
The ”New” Lindenwood
As Jim phases out and Milan phases in, together, they have worked hard to create the “new” Lindenwood. Staying true to the Inn’s charm as a sea captain’s home, Milan and Jim have lovingly filled the Inn with art and furnishings from their journeys around the world. They welcome you to retreat to Lindenwood and consider it your home away from home as you pass through on your journey. They hope you, too, will feel the pull of the island that has brought them back year after year. They look forward to welcoming you to the Inn, whether it is your first visit, or you are returning to ‘your room’ as a long-time member of the Lindenwood Inn family.
