A touch of French elegance in a beautiful historic Maine building make the Youngtown Inn unique, stunning, and popular.
The Lincolnville Book Festival gave us our first opportunity to write about the town, and the minute we saw a photo of the Youngtown Inn, we knew that it was the place for us. It didn’t hurt that people rave about the Inn’s French restaurant.
We love old historic inns but this one surprised us. In the Young family for about 180 years, it was purchased by a nonfamily member and converted to an inn in the early 1980s. Manuel and MaryAnn Mercier purchased it in 1991, turning it into the place they raised their three boys, a welcoming inn, and an amazing restaurant.
