Breakfast at Wiscasset Woods, Pet Friendly

Famous for our Free, Hot Breakfast

Our customers continue to rave about our hot breakfast.

If you’re looking for the cookie cutter experience of a chain motel – keep on driving. Wiscasset Woods Lodge is one of a kind and from our perspective – hard to beat. There’s not a thing we would change. Affordable accomodations, effective heat and AC, free parking, free wifi, comfortable bed, in room refrigerator, clean units – this has them all but the bonus is what sets this apart…. congenial staff, charming rooms, a trail through the woods loaded with birds, trees, and wildflowers, and BREAKFAST!!!!!!!! The free homecooked breakfast that comes as part of the cost is worthy of a 5* restaurant. We’ll be back next time we’re passing through.

We change our menu every day so if you stay with us for several days or weeks there’s always something new to try.

We always try to have something new and something familiar on our free, hot breakfast buffet.

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay. Wasn’t sure what to expect – one description I read was the rooms are “rustic” which we have found can sometimes mean uncomfortable or not tidy. Our room (second floor) was attractive, comfortable, cozy and exceptionally clean. We, too, loved the delicious, something-new-every-day breakfasts. But, the friendly owners and staff are what is best! Thanks for all of your helpful suggestions and for treating us like family.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality in regards to my stay at Wiscassett Woods this weekend.  My room was so modern and clean and perfect and I love that you welcome dogs.  Breakfast was so good and thank you for making me the gluten free muffin and offering to make me GF pancakes and French toast too.  I look forward to coming back sometime.

A Love of Historical Buildings

Sarah Castro has always loved architecture. Growing up in North Carolina she always drawn to Maine because the architecture is so approachable. “You don’t have to be a millionaire to own an historical house here.”  In fact her mother, Mary Castro, bought an older house in Wiscasset after retiring 4 years ago.

With her love of historical buildings, Sarah picked the right place for her store. Little Maine Mercantile is located at 49 Water Street, just down the road from Red’s Eats. Her store is in Wiscasset’s oldest commercial building, built in 1797. Over the years it’s been a hardware store, general store, and toy store. The building has charming remnants of its days as a hardware store. Behind the front counter are cubbies where bolts were once stored, the size markings can still be seen on the face of the bins. Cut into the floor towards the back of the building are different sized holes used when selling rope. The bulk of the rope was stored underneath the building and was threaded up through the holes where it could be cut to length depending on the buyer’s needs.  

Little Maine Mercantile shares the store space with Spruce – a coffee and smoothie bar run by Julie Ambrosino. The two met at their full-time jobs in Portland. Sarah worked in a marketing firm in the same building where Julie worked. They both still hold down their full-time jobs, because of this the store is only open part of the week.  Sarah’s mom helps her run the store on the days Sarah works in Portland.

Their best selling items are the Vena’s Infusions, little jars of dried fruits, bitters and sugar that you add alcohol to for a flavorful and interesting drink. The other big sellers are dog treats purchased by people living in the village. She also sells carefully selected goods made exclusively in New England. Sarah believes in supporting local artists and is open to carrying whatever items people let her know they need.

Sarah really enjoys Midcoast Maine. “The area is so beautiful and the people have been exceptional, really nice to us.” Sarah also feels blessed to be doing this together with Julie from Spruce. She hopes the store will become a community gathering place and can envision a day when they might be able to host small performances or screen movies.

Little Maine Mercantile opened at the end of the tourist season last year so they don’t know what to expect for business during the summer but said they did well around Christmas time. For now they’ll remain open Thursday through Saturday from 10am – 5pm.

You can find them on facebook or on their website Shop Little Maine.

Pet Friendly Rooms and a Hiking Trail

All Pet Friendly Rooms have Private Entrances

We have 7 pet friendly rooms and a 1/4 mile hiking trail that dogs love!

All of our pet friendly rooms are on the ground floor with a separate entrance. This makes it easy to get your pet onto the trail or into your car without worrying about disturbing other people.

Our pet friendly rooms also have linoleum planking. It looks like wood but you don’t have to worry about your pet’s paws scratching it and it won’t stain like carpets.

We do allow pets to be left alone in rooms. We just ask that you put up the Do Not Disturb sign when you’re out. Our rooms have been insulated with pets noises in mind.

Our 1/4 mile hiking trail is near the pet friendly rooms. In fact our One Queen Bed pet friendly rooms have a private back porch that leads directly onto the trail. We have garbage cans throughout the property and give you a roll of bags when you check in.
