Located on Main Street in the center of Castine’s historic district, the Jonathan Lowder House is only two blocks from the harbor. Built in the late 18th century, the house has been renovated and furnished to maintain its historical character while offering the comfort of modern conveniences. It stands on Main Street between the U.S. Post Office and the Castine Inn.
With 4 bedrooms and 2½ baths, it can very comfortably sleep 6 people. The house has a fully-stocked kitchen (oven, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, dishes, silverware), a dining room with seating for eight, reliable Wi-Fi, TV with internet access and DVD player, washer & dryer, outdoor deck, and off-street parking.
Castine has a number of historic sites and parks including the ruins of British earthworks at Fort George that was the site of an important siege during the Revolution, a deep water harbor (with moorings for small boats beyond the current of the Penobscot and Bagaduce rivers). Attractions include a nine-hole golf course (laid out by Willie Park, Jr. in 1921), tennis courts, kayak rentals, a nature preserve with trails, beaches, shops, and restaurants. In addition, the town has a public library, an active historical society, the Wilson Museum, a weekly farmers market, and a charming lighthouse. Castine’s streets are lined with 18th and 19th century houses, and shaded by large elms. Next door to the Lowder house is the Castine Post Office – opened in 1814, it is reportedly the oldest in continuous operation in the United States.
