Overview

The Colony Hotel is spectacularly situated amid glorious and manicured gardens on a rocky promontory above the Atlantic Ocean. The white wooden structure was built in 1914 and spans a full 300 feet, topped by a cupola and the weather vane of a large ship. The wrap-around Ocean Porch and the gazebo offer views of the ocean and river. The Colony became Maine's first environmentally responsible hotel in 1994.

The Colony has been a family-run business since 1948, and the hotel’s amenities have expanded with each generation, from the gentile attraction of afternoon tea, fresh-cut flowers, white wicker chairs and lawn games to its heated saltwater swimming pool, private safe-surf beach and gorgeous organic gardens. The hotel’s distinct silhouette is visible from both land and sea, serving as a landmark for seafaring vessels for decades and as a benchmark for all coastal hotels in the state.

The Colony Hotel, a member of Historic Hotels of America since 1999, dates back to 1914.

Fun FactThe hotel recycles worn bedspreads and linens into handcrafted items sold in the gift shop and aprons for kitchen staff.
