The Alamoosook Lakeside Inn has been the Downeast Maine vacation, event and reception venue for over 50 years. Serving Bangor, Bar Harbor, Belfast and Ellsworth Maine, the Inn is truly a fixture in the community having played host to hundreds of weddings, parties, and retreats over the years. For couples seeking a wedding reception venue, or visitors from around the world, the Inn provides a warm and cozy atmosphere and a unique opportunity to experience the real Maine.
The Inn’s location on the shores of Alamoosook Lake lets our guests enjoy nature at its best. We have crystal clear water, beautiful native pine trees and an astonishing array of wildlife. We have no light pollution, so you can see more stars than you ever thought existed.
We are proud to be a Silver level GreenLeader in TripAdvisor’s GreenLeaders program, which helps travelers plan greener trips to environmentally-friendly accommodations in the U.S. We are also proud to be recognized by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection as an Environmental Leader.

Loons, osprey, and bald eagles all contributed to making the inn a “Best Nest” accommodation by the Maine Birding Trail association. The Trail follows 82 prime birding sites throughout the state. Alamoosook Lake is a central location for visiting several of the top sites along the Trail.
Grab a paddle, it’s on us!
Complimentary use of our canoes and kayaks is extended to all guests! So grab a paddle at our boathouse and experience firsthand the pleasures of our gorgeous lake and its surrounding area. Adventurous guests would want to kayak up to the Craig Brook Fish Hatchery and take a tour of the oldest hatchery on the East Coast!
Lots to Do
Our recreation room and the large stone fireplace is the ideal place to relax after a day spent taking in the pleasures while visiting Maine! Curl up with a book from our library, or kick back and enjoy Direct TV. For the young (or young at heart), there is also foosball, Ping-Pong, and board games to keep them entertained. Outside the Inn, the lakefront stretches for a quarter mile — the perfect place for a stroll! Lakeside picnic tables offer the perfect opportunity to try lobster rolls from Crosby’s, a local specialty.
