The Daniel And Captain Daniel Stone Inn Is Undergoing a Major Renovation to Become a Charming Boutique Hotel

When Gerard Kiladjian’s Principal Hospitality acquired the property in Brunswick, Maine, previously known as The Daniel and Captain Daniel Stone Inn in 2020, he had a vision of converting the historic site into a boutique hotel. However, the onset of COVID-19 posed unexpected challenges.

After significant renovations and pandemic-related setbacks, The Federal opened this spring. This marks the first concept from the hospitality group.

With over 35 years of experience in the hospitality industry, Kiladjian previously served as the general manager of the Portland Harbor Hotel before venturing into this new project. Despite being just 30 minutes from Portland, the rates at this property are notably more affordable.

Kiladjian aims to position Brunswick as a travel destination. Situated near Bowdoin College and midway between Portland and Boothbay Harbor, this coastal town, located two hours north of Boston, offers an excellent base for exploring Maine’s mid-coast region.

The property, originally built in 1810 as the primary residence of Captain Daniel Stone, now features a stunning two-story atrium lobby with a nautical theme. It comprises only 30 guest rooms spread across two buildings.

The larger East Wing offers king and queen rooms furnished with vintage pieces and modern conveniences, creating a blend of history and contemporary comfort. The Federal building, a cozy renovated 19th-century sea captain’s home, houses four guest rooms and two spacious suites.

The interior design, including unique elements like a 1,300-pound petrified wood table and Restoration Hardware furniture, was conceptualized by Kiladjian’s wife, Annie Kiladjian of Annie K. Designs in Portland.

Guests can enjoy complimentary freshly brewed coffee, high-speed WiFi, access to a fitness room and yoga studio, and the option to bring their dogs for an extra fee. A small market adjacent to the lobby offers snacks and drinks for purchase.

The reimagined restaurant at The Federal, now known as 555 North, helmed by award-winning chef Steve Corry and his wife Michelle, presents classic dishes with a creative twist using local ingredients and fresh seafood.

The newly renovated 140-seat restaurant features a bar area with a large brick fireplace and a dining room filled with natural light and beautiful glass barn doors. The menu highlights include housemade bread and butter, Bangs Island mussels, a grilled Caesar salad, and autumn duck breast with cranberry duck jus.

The Federal and 555 North are located at 10 Water Street in Brunswick, Maine.
