Inn with Wildlife

Luxury comes naturally at Inn by the Sea with a unique approach to hospitality inspired by our natural coastal surroundings. We strive to blend luxury, service, and an exceptional guest stay with environmental preservation, minimizing the impact of hotel operations with our eco-friendly initiatives and an appreciation of all things local.

Delectable dining at Sea Glass celebrates Maine fare, vegan options, and underutilized and sustainable seafood fresh from the Gulf of Maine. Guests are surrounded by indigenous gardens that provide food and habitat for wildlife, and our rooms are cleaned with non-toxic Green Seal products.

Room amenities are natural, offered to guests in pumps , and our clean and unfiltered water from Lake Sebago is provided in reusable glass bottles. Our sheet and towel program is designed to to protect the endangered monarch butterfly and funded habitat restoration for the endangered New England cottontail rabbit.

We safeguard our earth's resources through energy and water conservation; we recycle, compost all food waste, and use post-consumer paper products. Our guests are welcome to use the complimentary EV charging stations available on property. 

For our recreational amenities, our cardio room utilizes recycled rubber floors while our outdoor pool is heated with solar panels. The SPA was designed with recycled sheet rock walls and recycled cork flooring.

We recognize the value of our community by supporting local schools by purchasing books from their library wish lists and support regional charities and organizations that preserve the natural environment. We celebrate and share the soul of our location through guest-centric programs and packaging while working with local producers, growers, and fishermen who all share our appreciation for all things Maine.
