'Hospitality for Habitat' began in 2004 and has raised over $30,000 to build homes for low income families in Maine since its inception. In 2009 Inn by the Sea raised $2,200 for Habitat for Humanity with the help of their guests through the program. This year, after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, a portion of the funds will also be directed to Habitat projects in Haiti. A tax deductible donation check made out to Habitat for Humanity should be given to Inn by the Sea on check in. Every dollar raised will be donated to help build habitat homes.
The Inn by the Sea on the Maine coast is Maine's first hotel heated by biofuel and the first in the state to be carbon neutral. The hotel also has five acres of indigenous gardens certified as a Wildlife Habitat. They also offer green weddings and green meetings.
