Eco-friendly Getaways in Midcoast Maine

Join us for an eco-friendly getaway in Midcoast Maine and have a great time while also contributing to the health of the Earth.

Our Eco-Friendly Efforts

Ensuring that the energy used for day-to-day operations came from a green source was a huge goal for us. Now we can proudly say that over 90% of our energy comes from new sustainable solar panels and battery installations. In addition, Tesla chargers have been set up for guests with electric cars.

  • Making use of more concentrated cleaners helps us keep plastic bottles out of production by making better use of what we have.
  • We recycle an estimated 18,000 cans and bottles a year in an effort to ensure that fewer end up in our landfills or oceans.
  • Sheets we no longer use are donated to the Knox County Homeless Coalition and, similarly, our towels are donated to Pope Memorial Humane Society.
  • Repurposing around 20,000 lbs. of food waste a year as snacks for our horses keeps them fed and happy.
  • Switching from disposable straws to reusable metal straws has greatly reduced the amount of plastic waste we produce.
  • Any shell waste from seafood is repurposed or upcycled with over 10,000 a year used in some form or fashion instead of being wasted.

Ocean-Friendly Dining

We are proud to announce that our restaurant, The Causeway, is a proud partner of the Surfrider Foundation. Now officially certified as an ocean-friendly restaurant, we go to great lengths to ensure our practices will help cultivate the ocean’s bounty for decades to come. Offering an eclectic selection of seafood and New England-style cuisine in 3 beautiful dining spaces, it’s the perfect place to stop by for a romantic dinner or relaxed lunch. Check out our diverse menu with favorites like the always delectable crab cakes or the specialty Maine salmon pie.
