We loved the Island Inn. Our room, overlooking the harbor, was spotless. A small room nicely appointed with sink, towels and lovely toiletries. The only ocean view room available, when we made our reservation, was with a shared bathroom. We were unsure about sharing a bathroom; but, I must say it was totally fine. The sink in the room took... More

Spent 3 wonderful days with my partner and daughter - we stayed in the Pierce Cottage - a gorgeous room - #52. We had our own porch facing a field. We had a fantastic vacation. The staff is very professional - could not have been nicer. Rooms were spotless. Please treat the staff with appreciation and respect - they deserve... More

I have had the pleasure of staying on Monhegan Island three times before but had not stayed at the Island Inn until this month. The experience was an enormous treat. We stayed in the Pierce cottage, which was delightful, and luxuriated in having seven windows with seven white curtains swaying with gentle breezes, bringing the outside in. The common rooms... More

I LOVE the Island Inn! As you approach the island on the ferry, you see her looming ahead, beckoning to you to enjoy a stress free vacation with no tv or phones! There is free wifi at the Inn if you need to 'connect' with the outside world! This is my second visit to the Inn and hopefully this will... More

This was my first time to the Inn and island. I highly recommend visiting the island. The hiking is great and the island is clean. There are trucks on the island so it is definitely noisier than I anticipated. The Inn was nice. Noisy though with all of the doors slamming, I did not sleep well although the beds are... More

We have had many wonderful experiences at the Island Inn. A trip to beautiful Monhegan would not feel complete without at least a night here. From the friendly staff to the delicious breakfasts, it never disappoints. It is not cheap, and be aware that some of the rooms are pretty tiny -- but the feat of running an establishment as... More

The Island Inn sits on the brow of the hill that leads down to the dock and it sits serenely overlooking the harbor. We spent a lot of time sitting in the Adirondack chairs watching the dock activity and reading. The rooms are simple New England style with white curtains blowing in the sea breeze, and down comforters to ward... More

It is hard to put into words the beauty, uniqueness, and splendor of Monhegan Island. For my wife and I, Monhegan was a place unlike we had ever been before. You will not find exciting nightlife or chain restaurants here. But if you're looking for the absolute perfect place to unwind, disconnect from the world, and BREATHE, look no further... More

Timeless old school lodge style hotel updated to current standards in a stunningly beautiful, uniquely peaceful place. The absence of TV and phones is wonderful. If one needs contact the hotel has a main phone and internet wi fi. Last night after a beautiful walk we sat on the porch, watched the sunset and read while listening to someone play... More

Monhegan is a place for respite, wonder and outdoor delight and we could not have had a better base than the Island Inn. The Inn had lovely touches -- a shared guest refrigerator for storing picnic items -- including the Growler from the Monhegan Brewing Company, a crazily delightful find after a few hours of hiking -- and 6:45 coffee...
