Party of four on first trip to Monhegan in mid-July 2015. Where to stay? Where to eat? What to do? Which boat to take? We read and considered other TripAdvisor and web comments, finally deciding on a two-night stay at the Island Inn. It was more expensive than the alternatives such as the Monhegan House, the Trailing Yew or some... More

We spent 2 nights at the Monhegan Inn and had a wonderful time! We had reservations at the inn for both Friday and Saturday night and enjoyed breakfast at the inn 2 mornings. We had an ocean view room with a private bathroom. Beautiful views! We brought a small cooler with appetizers that we enjoyed both afternoons on the lawn.

.....to a genteel relaxing stay on Monhegan Island. This was our first trip to Monhegan and we decided to splurge for a suite with a private deck. We absolutely loved the accommodations in this century plus old inn. Service was gracious and professional, and the breakfast buffet offered many delicious choices. Dinner was also very good. We especially enjoyed being... More

Very good restaurant for such a remote island. The menu changes nightly. It is BYOB and you can buy a bottle of wine at the little store at the ferry dock. Sometimes they host art classes for groups and can fill up so a reservation was necessary when we were there

Though we've dined at the Island Inn many times over the last dozen years (it's one of just a few options on Monhegan), this time we did it all. My wife, who's been coming to Monhegan for many years, decided she wanted to celebrate her birthday here, and we brought about 40 friends along for the ride, most of us... More

Monhegan Island is a magical place and the Island Inn commands the best location above the natural harbor. The Inn is housed in a beautiful old historic building with fantastic views from the water front rooms. The rooms are small and basic for the cost of $375 per night. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was excellent... More

This was our second visit to the Island. This time, we wanted to stay the night. We understand the Inn was sold a couple years ago, two a couple that own one of our favorite places,The Ramp, on Cape Porpoise. Well they have done a super job with the Island Inn. The service staff was very helpful, and the Inn,... More

If you want to get away from it all and at the same time, have the option of a sumptuous Breakfast Buffet every morning included in the price of the room, the Island Inn is for you. It is nine miles out to sea. The Island residents have approx. 15 trucks, no cars, (that's it) on the entire island. The... More

This hotel was extremely efficient, friendly and clean. W stayed in an ocean view King bed room with private bath. Linens were soft and clean. The restaurant buffet at breakfast was incredible for the price paid for the room. Service friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful stay and will surely visit again!
