Asticou Inn

Hiring for All positions for the 2022 Season! Onsite Housing Available! End of Season Bonus!

The Asticou Inn has been welcoming guests from around the world since 1883 to enjoy the quiet village of Northeast Harbor and its stunning landscape. It is the perfect jumping off point for experiencing Mount Desert Island whether by foot, bicycle, or car. We close mid October for the season! We are not accepting the H2B program at this time.

Overlooking the picturesque waters of Northeast Harbor, Maine. Our location has convenient access to many of Mount Desert Island’s most treasured attractions. Acadia National Park, Thuya Garden, and the Asticou Azalea Garden are each just a short walk away.

About Asticou Inn

We pride ourselves on carrying on the tradition of the Asticou Inn; with sweeping lawns that reach to the Atlantic on one side and trails leading into Acadia National Park on the other.

We are seeking employees that are as enthusiastic about our location as we are and have a desire to share it with our many guests. 

The Inn opens in mid-May and closes at the end of October. We have 48 rooms: 31 in the main inn and 17 in adjacent cottages. 

Our restaurant serves three meals a day both inside and outside on our deck. We also have a lounge and bar for both our Inn and public guests to relax and take in the view.

The Asticou Inn is known for our events from weddings to fundraising galas.  

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate will have open availability for the entire season. All of our positions are temporary, so we ask that job seekers make us their sole priority during the limited months of employment. S/he must be willing to cross the boundaries of the job description in order to meet the changing needs of the property, and maintain a positive and helpful attitude, even when things don't go according to plan. The candidate should also keep in mind that this job is real work--we are not here to provide your "Maine adventure." We want you to enjoy your season and explore and enjoy the area, but we have a large job to do and we require that seasonal employees make that job their priority. 

Room and Board

Employees may reside in our on-site housing.  Rooms are shared, as are bathrooms. 

  • Three meals per day are served in our employee lounge. 
  • Laundry facilities are also in the lounge area as is cable TV. 
  • All areas of our property have free WiFi. 

As many of our employees live adjacent to our guest rooms, employees are expected to be quiet, respectful, and courteous at all times. 

Getting Here and Getting Around

Fly to Boston or Bangor and take a bus or shuttle to Bar Harbor, Maine. 

Employees not arriving by car can be met in Bar Harbor with advance notice. 

Getting around the island without a car is possible thanks to the free Island Explorer.

For Fun

Mount Desert Island is an exciting place to be during the summer months; opportunities abound. 

It is a great place for outdoor activities: hiking, cycling, kayaking, rock climbing, paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, and sailing.

Things to look forward to include: watching the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain (where the sun hits the United States first each day), whale watching (there is nothing like watching a humpback breaching completely out of the water) and eating lobster on the beach! 

There are many cultural activities in the area, including music festivals, theatrical performances, and movies.
