The Inn is located near the dock, when you first arrive on the ferry. The Inn served fresh seafood and was one of a handful of places you can eat on the island. Our room was quiet and had a great view of the sunset, overlooking the ocean. There are a number of areas in the Inn to relax, read... More

We loved staying at the inn! We had a room at the top of the stairs with an ocean view. Watching the sunset over the small island was glorious. After hiking all over the island I was content to sit on the front porch rockers while my husband took more pictures. Fantastic dinner in the restaurant downstairs. Comfy bed and... More

This is a super convenient and comfortable Inn just up the hill as you get off the boat on Monhegan. The Inn is clean, well staffed, has great food, a great location and the view is spectacular. You really want to stay here ...

The gorgeous Inn is situated on the island to take full advantage of the seascape. The Inn is a journey back in time. You can sense the modern world melting away on entering the period common spaces. The porch is filled with rockers that keep pace with the quiet island life. The surprise comes with the rooms that are carefully... More

This was our 3rd trip to the Island for our annual "girls" trip, & the Island Inn never disappoints!! We like reserving the end rooms w/private bath, we get another window that way & can enjoy more of the beautiful view. Speaking of reservations, do not wait! If you want a private bath & a particular room, reserve NOW!! The... More

I've been coming to Monhegan for years but had never stayed at the Island Inn, so I decided to give it a try. It was all right, surely, but not nearly as special as I had anticipated, given that it is the "fancy" lodging on the island. Beyond the dining room, the inn wasn't particularly memorable. Our small, spare third-floor... More

It was in the most stunning location overlooking Mañana and the harbour, we loved sitting on the balcony watching the Eagle when he showed himself. Our room was small without a bathroom, (shared bathrooms are an option. So, maybe not ideal). There are all sorts of other rooms with own bathrooms, I cannot comment on them as I did not... More

Although this was not our first visit to Monhegan Island, we had a new Monhegan experience by staying in the Island Inn. We had a wonderful corner room with a view of the dock. We already knew we loved Monhegan. But now we love the Island Inn as well. The room was very comfortable. The food was delicious. And the... More

I love all of Maine and Monhegan Island one of my favorite places. It like strong back in time with all the comforts of today. The Inn is a great place to stay on the Island. Very clean, wonderful staff and great beds. Breakfast is the best on the island and it's included.

Mohegan Island is not for all, but it is wonderful for those who want incredible beauty and a simpler way of life. The Island Inn, one of several places to stay, is the flagship inn, to be sure. Our room was a corner room with cross ventilation and private bath. Our dinner was in the dining room overlooking the harbor,... More
