We stayed 2 nights in the main inn - beautiful room - very comfortable bed. Working fireplace - not used in August but imagine it would be lovely in the winter. Impeccably clean. There was no TV in the room which was perfect for us - but WIFI can be very slow. Bath is typical of an old building, claw... More

My husband and I were fortunate to stay at the Blue Hill Inn for three nights this past week. It made our trip that much more enjoyable. The baked goods at tea, appetizers in the early evening, and the four course breakfasts were amazing. The ingredients were "local" fresh and all the food was home made. From the Black Dinah... More

Just back from another visit to the Blue Hill Inn and I am happy to report that perfection continues at this gem of a property on the Blue Hill peninsula in Down East Maine! From the interesting antique filled rooms, expertly decorated, the comfy beds and every amenity in the bathroom, to the absolutely delicious cuisine, this B&B remains perfect... More

My husband and I made a brief visit to Blue Hill. If I would have known we would fall in love with the Inn and the community we will have planned on staying longer. Sarah is an exceptional hostess. The room was immaculate and the bed was ohhhh so comfortable. Loved being able to meet other guests at the afternoon... More

Thank you so much, JeanVIP, for your review and wonderful compliments. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay with us, brief though it was. The blueberry pancakes are a very popular breakfast item! We change other items on the menu but we don't ever mess with the pancakes--same recipe for the last 25 years--and the real maple syrup is from... More

We just needed to stay in Blue Hill one night, and we'd had dinner at this lovely 1840 inn a few years before while renting a lake-side cottage in that town. We reserved a room, then were contacted that a slightly lower-price room had become available and she was switching us to that -- hard to believe she'd make this... More

I stayed two nights at the Blue Hill Inn for business in mid June, on a cool rainy day between two gloriously sunny days in this charming historic inn in charming historic Blue Hill. Midweek before the 4th of July meant that nature was in full throttle summer but the town was quiet. Very quiet at night especially. I went... More

We had a wonderful time at the Blue Hill Inn. The Inn is a quaint, historic property that is very clean and very well kept. The staff did a wonderful job pampering us during our stay. The hor d'oeuvres and apple squares in the evening were excellent. Our breakfast the next morning was gourmet and wonderfully healthful. Our 2 bedroom... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. The staff and I really appreciate your compliments and are delighted you had a memorable visit. We love those apple squares, too--and now have the recipe on our website, bluehillinn.com, in our online cookbook section, so everyone can enjoy them! All the best to you. More

This was a welcome repeat visit for us. We were so pleased to find the same charm and beauty we enjoyed five years ago. As the other reviews indicate the Blue Hill Inn stands out as a gem. You cannot get there without a leisurely drive down a Maine country road - and as you travel that road you begin... More

If you are looking for the best possible services with the everything you could ask for, at a fair price, this is it. Elegant, charming, convenient are adjectives that do not do it justice. The gourmet breakfast was the finishing touch. We cannot recommend the Blue Hill Inn highly enough.

This was our second visit, and it was just a wonderful as the first. Sara and Duncan make you feel very welcome and like old friends. The cleanliness, ambiance, and luxury can't be topped. The breakfast is delightful. You never want to leave.
