While we rarely ever write a review, we felt this particular experience needed one for two reasons. First, we hope to warn others of the potential for an unpleasant dining experience. And two, we wish to share our thoughts with the owner/manager of the inn so that he understands that his actions and behavior were totally unacceptable. We did not... More

I have been going to Brooklin Inn restaurant for many years off and on. When the previous owners owned it it was great since then it has been going downhill rapidly. The food is over priced, miniscule portions. My wife and two of our friends had scallops for entrée; small scallops (4 of them) and I do believe that the... More

We visited the Brooklin Inn in June and had a wonderful time. The room was cozy and the food was delicious! We had a wonderful breakfast of organic homemade granola, plus pancakes with Maine maple syrup. Dinner was in the Irish Pub, and consisted of great pizzas and fully loaded nachos, washed down with a couple of Guiness Stouts! We... More

We loved our stay! Simple bedroom accommodations- feels cozy. Beautiful bathroom and decorated with antique snowshoes and skis, old paintings of Maine scenes and period wall paper. Chip provided us with an exquisite breakfast of fresh in-season fruit, crepe-like pancakes with Maine blueberries and a delicately sliced strawberry on the stem.

The Inn is quaint and cozy. Located in rural Maine it is not a 10 star, big name hotel, and that's why we like it. Dinners are fantastic. Wonderful local food and choices. Reservations should be made. Bedrooms fairly small, but adequate for a nights sleep. Breakfast is too good to be true, again with local flavor. The Inn is... More

Our stay at the Brooklin Inn this summer was our second overnight and third dinner. We traveled all the way from Hong Kong last summer and will likely do it again. We are never disappointed! I love the Inn for many reasons, but mostly because I feel like I am "home;" it's as if I walked into Green Gables, very... More

We called in mid afternoon for accommodations on a Saturday evening in mid September. They were very accommodating in making space for us. The Inn Keeper even changed our room after we checked in to give my wife a better shower. The room, and bed were quite comfortable. Breakfast was good but not outstanding. We ate that night in the...

We remember these folks as particularly nice guests and appriciate their comments on the food. As for the pork dish...I concure. It was too dry and not tasty enough. We were trying a boneless loin chop, but have since gone back to pork tenderloins. Our lobster is a very popular dish served out of the shell with fresh mango and... More

A surprisingly delightful B&B found us via an ad in the "The Working Waterfront" this last week. We were visiting the Blue Hiil region and looking for an affordable place to lay our heads for a night. The Brooklin Inn was our treasure: a simple, updated vintage, very clean and comfortable B&B. The accommodations were more than adequate though what... More

Chip and Gail are wonderful innkeepers. They were able to take a last minute reservation and turn it into a magical weekend. All of their folks from the talented chef, the very warm and friendly staff, their delightful housekeeper and the make-you-feel-right-at-home downstairs "pub" tender made it a very memorable Valentine's Day trip! Thank you one and all for not... More
