The couple we travelled with nearly bought this place 20+ years ago. Clearly, there has been a lot of work done. Though lots remain to be done, it is quite a nice place to stay and eat. Highly recommend one of the three suites on the second floor. They are spacious, nicely appointed and well-maintained. The beds are very comfortable... More

Stayed several nights in July. First the pros. The rooms are gorgeous and clean. The restaurant serves good quality pub food. The building is old and beautiful. So what could be wrong? Service. Read the old reviews and it will explain the issue. The restaurant staff walks by you quizzically. The owners/staff are no where to be found or if... More

We spent 1 night at Barncastle while on a 2-week vacation traveling the coast of Maine. It was perfect in every way. The ambience is comfortably elegant and the rooms are well appointed. We arrived after bicycling 35 miles from Searsport and thoroughly enjoyed checking in, refreshing and relaxing and then simply stepping downstairs for a drink at the outside... More

We accepted the adventure of trying "spelt" for the first time, and found it to be wonderful. It's a type of wheat dough that is offered as an alternative crust with their pizza and calzones. A slight "nutty" taste really adds to it! My husband raved about his Type O Calzone....said it was the best calzone he had ever had.... More

I had business at Maine Maritime. The room was clean and comfortable with heaters for the cold weather. the restaurant is very good, pub is quaint with good food. Pizza in the wood fired area. I would stay there again. I ordered food and brought to room. I also ate in the pub. Breakfast is average.

Pros: room was clean, comfortable, quiet. The restaurant was really, really good: great beer selection, friendly service, casual food with a eye to local ingredients. Not fancy, just very high quality pub food, including great desserts made on site. Con: it is very sad to have to write this because I would have liked to reccommend this place without reservation,but... More

We live nearby and eat at Barncastle all year...more so in the winter! We visited last in December with our three sons and had a great meal. Pizza and mussels and great salad. All fresh ingredients. The restaurant was chilly, we wished that the fireplace near us was lit. Service was mediocre, server was efficient but not overly friendly.

Excellent, relaxed atmosphere--and food that is delicious, interesting, and very well-prepared. In the cold weather months, the pub room with its blazing fire is deeply welcoming. In warm weather, the dining areas are kept pleasantly cool. The crabcakes are the best we've ever had in any restaurant: there is no filler; they are all crab! The wood-fired pizza is extraordinary.... More

I stayed at Barncastle while attending a 1 week training at Wooden Boat School in Brooklin. Wooden Boat is an easy 20 minute drive away. I did not wish to stay in Brooklin as I wanted to be able to get away to work after class. I stayed in Suite 2 on the second floor, which is a 2 room... More
