Originally built in 1832 by the Hallet family, the Spouter Inn’s main building was created as a summer home to escape the everyday routine of life in upstate New York. Not only a place to relax and enjoy the summers, but their home also helped to create memories for many in the community as they held concerts and dances in the second-floor dance hall. The decades of fun and frivolity were many and the home evolved over the years. At times it was a place for migrant workers to rent rooms while harvesting local crops or working in the fishing/lobstering industry.
In 1986, the building was renovated, updating the structure, upgrading its function, yet keeping the feel of its “golden days” of old. A beautiful carriage house was added with the custom design of artistic post & beam woodwork. With ceilings of Maine Hemlock and floors of Ash, each guest room and private bath has its own personality demonstrated by the use of wood finish: Mahogany, Bird’s Eye Maple, Cherry, Pine, and Oak.
In the summer of 2018, Linda and Marc Impagliazzo became the owners and hosts of the Spouter Inn. After much searching, they came upon the Spouter Inn and loved it immediately. The beautiful view of the Penobscot Bay across the street was breathtaking and too hard to pass by! Like the previous owners, Don and Erin Shirley, said, “Everyone has a reason for being called to the shore.”
Linda worked as an executive in the nonprofit field and Marc worked in both the construction and lumber retail field for many years. They thought their different skill sets would complement one another and give them an opportunity to work together, starting a new adventure!
We hope you come to enjoy the beauty of the Spouter Inn and mid-coast Maine!
