Candlebay Inn


Candlebay Inn, Freeport, MaineWe are so excited to announce a new partnership with 18 Maple, a neighboring art studio in Freeport. This September we will be offering two packages to our guests which feature a paint and sip session with artist Kit Munroe, owner of 18 Maple.

Spend a night out on the town with your loved one or girlfriends! Paint and sip nights are fun and instructional. Join us as you paint Maine Islands on Friday, September 18 or Beach Roses on Saturday, September 26.

You won’t even need your car when you stay with us! If you would like to venture out after your paint and sip night or while you’re staying with us, we’re an easy walk away from Freeport Village.

Warmest wishes, 




Connie Lay, Innkeeper
