The Asticou Inn lobby was a hub of activity for guests of the Savage family at nearby cottages, guests of the Inn, and local families such as the Eliots, Peabodys, and Curtis' who owned property and rusticator cottages in the Asticou area. In this view of the lobby, of the second hotel built in 1901, the post office is located adjacent to the main desk.
At this time the Asticou village post office was located in the lobby of the Asticou Inn although it had been located at the Roberts House and other locations previously. The Inn closed in October each year and it is probable that post office transactions were moved to another Savage family property during the off-season months prior to the Inn reopening in May.
