What a super place, it was every thing we read about it from its website to the reviews on various tourist sites. Donna and her warm and engaging personality were tops. We loved the individual attention and service were received -this was not PR hype, but the real thing! The home, and it is a home where Donna lives, is... More

We had a delightful time at The Captain's Watch. The owner, Donna Dillman, was warm, friendly and accommodating. Our room was large, clean, fully stocked with goodies (shampoos, body washes, bubble bath) books and lots of extra blankets and fluffy pillows. We even had the added benefit of stairs that led from the room to a cupola, a wonderful place... More

A classic Maine two story house built in 1840, perched on a hill overlooking Cundy's Harbor and topped by a superb six-sided cupola big enough for three to sit in. The cupola is sturdy and dry -- a wonderful perch during a recent lightening storm. Donna, the owner, lives on site and knows the history of the area and most... More

I was reliving my proposal experience today and decided to leave a review. My fiancé worked with Donna and Ken to plan a completely secret engagement trip for me. We arrived late on a Friday night and I had no idea where I was headed. Donna (Ken was out on a boat charter- how "Maine"!) greeted us at the door... More

My wife and I stayed with Ken and Donna for our Honeymoon at the end of June. This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and our first time in Maine. If I had to sum up our stay in just one word I would say it was outstanding! Breakfast was wonderful each morning followed by great conversation... More

We recently stayed two nights here and had a great time. Donna was so welcoming and full of interesting stories about local lore! She was so knowledgeable about the surrounding area that it made me wish we were staying longer to explore all of her suggestions. Popham beach is a must-see. Breakfasts were delicious and thoughtfully planned. We felt right... More

Harpswell is your quintessential Maine coastal town, and the Captain's Watch Inn is a wonderful way to enjoy it. The inn itself is very quaint and located in walking distance to the water and great lobster. The inn owners are so friendly and helpful, and their breakfasts were incredible! They even sent us their recipes afterwards (the sour cream blueberry... More

If you are looking to get off the beaten path from the tourists who head to Bar Harbor and experience the true beauty and hospitality of Maine....then you need not look any further than coming to Harpswell and staying here with Ken and Donna in their beautiful home...which just happens to be a historic inn.

We stayed at this wonderful spot for many years in a row, perhaps 10-15 years ago and just returned after a long absence. To our delight, nothing had changed! Ken and Donna are just delightful and couldn't be more helpful. We absolutely love all of the rooms (yes, we've stayed in all of them)! The views are fantastic. The breakfasts... More
