Escape crowds in historic Seaview, a place known for its tranquil setting and delightful atmosphere. What was once a buzzing summertime community for Portland's upper class as well as a depot for the Clamshell Rail Road is now a quiet small town rich with history and full of charm. 

In the early 1870's Jonathan Stout received a land grant that eventually grew to become the town of Seaview. It was there the Stout family eventually built Unique Inns member, the Shelburne Inn.

Today, Seaview's picturesque tree lined streets are full of interesting turn of the century Victorian Homes. Quaint merchants a long with a wooden boardwalk provide an avenue for visitors to enjoy a bit of times past with their meandering.
