Our visit to The Moorings Inn was way too short, but sweet. For starters, we were upgraded to a great room looking over the bay. The manager, Nicole, and Vicky were very helpful when we had a personal business crisis and had to scan/print/fax documents right there. Perhaps the icing was the staff sharing great hikes - usually only known... More

We only spent one day/night at the Moorings Inn with weather that was rainy and dismal, which was unfortunate as the location and view would have been perfect for our final night in beautiful Maine. We had the Red Jacket room which was comfortable with a nice screened porch attached. The staff at the desk both in the evening and... More

My husband and I had a great time at Moorings Inn while traveling for work. The manager is super sweet, and the rooms are great (and affordable!). It is not far from many of the popular trails in Acadia, and much more inexpensive than staying in Bar Harbor. and there are some very good restaurants nearby. I definitely plan to... More

We would love to have you back. Thank you for being our guests, and embracing the treasures of the Quietside. Yes, plenty of Acadia in any direction from here.

For an 18th century Captain's Home, I think this is doing pretty well. We stayed in Spindrift, and we had a lovely picture window to welcome the day each morning, and watch the sunset each night. The only thing I didn't really like about the room was that the bathroom was not private (no door). Next year, we're shooting for... More

We enjoyed being your hosts. Your appreciation of our relaxed yet comfortable setting is what we stride for. Thank you for your thoughts. Yes, Spindrift suite does have a unique layout. There is a door from the bedroom to enter the bathroom/sitting room, which provides privacy. This sitting room is also the travel way to enter your private deck. We... More

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights on our honeymoon, Sep 29-Oct 1. After a leisurely ride up the Maine coast we were very excited when we reached the Moorings Inn.

Congratulations to you both! We could not be more touched that your momentous celebration was so fulfilling. Love your photos; especially the sunrises, and the one with the crows on the arbor. What a lovely "Mainer" eye you have. We look forward to being a retreat/anniversary home away from home for you. Best to you both. More

My husband and I stayed there 1 night. I wished we had stayed there all of our 4 nights because the Moorings Inn is a total delight. It is very quaint, quiet and peaceful. It is situated right on the harbor. You are very close to Bass Harbor Light, Seawall and other Acadia points of interest. We stayed in “Port”... More

This inn was wonderful. Away from the hussle of Bar Harbor, view of the real fishermen's harbor on one side and bay to ocean on the other. Right on the water, lovely lawn and pier. I could have my well behaved dog with me. Very welcoming, serene, real Maine . And at once close to everything on Mt Desert Island.... More

My husband and I were at the Moorings Inn this past weekend. We were somewhat skeptical due to the mixed reviews but we decided to take our chances. We were at the Dauntless Suite that was beautifully decorated and of course had an amazing view! We did have a minor issue in the room but the staff was very friendly... More

5 Cheers for you! Such a pleasure to have you here. Our mixed reviews are certainly a reflection of the unique property the Moorings Inn is. Operating a 1784 Sea Captains house is certainly a heartfelt family focus. We do not have air conditioning, or a waffle maker. We do have a full complimentary continental breakfast, ocean breeze, fans, &... More
