George A Wheeler House


This beautiful historic Colonial was built in the late 1700’s and has an interesting past. The home once serviced as the residence for the British Paymaster during the War of 1812. Subsequently the home became the home and office for the town’s doctor, George Wheeler.

With beautiful water views and conveniently located in the heart of Castine Village, this home is the perfect place for your family vacation, wedding, reunion or home base as you explore Down East Maine.

Our Home has 8 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2 kitchens, a formal dining room and multiple gathering places for you and your extended family. The porch offers the perfect place to enjoy a book, the beautiful Maine summers or enjoy your morning coffee. A short walk brings you to the towns Main Street shops, dock or restaurants. Maine Maritime Academy is nearby as well as the town’s golf and tennis courts.

Our home is available for rent from June thru October and the rate varies from $1000-$1200 per week and includes all linens, local phone, garbage pickup and utilities. Our rentals are handled thru Oakum Bay real estate.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home and sharing the beautiful Village of Castine with you and your family.
