                              Castine is a small historic village on Penobscot Bay, one of the most beautiful bodies of water in the world. It has a rich colonial history. Originally occupied by the Tarrantine Indians, it was first colonized by French missionaries in the early 1600s. It was subsequently occupied by the French, Dutch and British. During the revolutionary war it was the site of the greatest naval defeat in American history prior to Pearl Harbor, the Penobscot expedition, during which Paul Revere established an artillery battery on an island directly across the harbor entrance from the house. The town has a museum documenting its history. There are numerous historical markers, revolutionary war forts and other landmarks. The town is recognized as one of the most walk able in the state. Its architecture is quite varied by period and includes a number of early colonial homes and buildings as well as early twentieth Century cottage. There are a number of restaurants and shops. There is an active waterfront with town docking facilities and rental moorings. A nine hole golf course and clay tennis courts are open to guests for modest fees. Rental kayaks and guided kayak tours are also available. There are a number of surrounding towns and villages to explore and Acadia National Park is one hour and fifteen minutes away. This is a perfect place for a memory filled vacation.
