We have dramatically reduced our 2014 rates!  However, we no longer provide a continental breakfast!  We will open May 16, 2014


 The Open Hearth Inn was originally built by a member of one of Trenton's earliest families, circa 1820. Many of the original architectural details have survived, including the pumpkin pine floors, paneled wainscoting, and the large open hearth fireplace, complete with oven and iron crane. As motorists took to the roads after World War II and the popularity of Acadia National Park developed, the demand for tourist

lodging grew. The early Cape Cod style house was converted to a lodging business in the mid 1940s.The first cottages were constructed in these early years and thereafter each consecutive innkeeper added a new facet to the accommodations. More cottages were built in the 1950s, motel rooms in the 1970, apartments in the 1990s, and original rooms in the house were converted to suites in 2004. 


    Welcome to Maine!  The Open Hearth Inn features many overnight options at reasonable rates.  We are perfectly located, 8 miles to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor; convenient access to Schoodic, Southwest and Northeast Harbors, Swans Island and Frenchboro, and other shore locations.

"We want to offer you clean, comfortable, and affordable overnight accommodations so that you will enjoy a beautiful, downeast Maine vacation."  Thank you for choosing the Open Hearth Inn.  Sincerely, Chuck and Sue Starr ...
