We spent a delightful three days at The 8th Maine on Peaks Island this summer. We had a room that looked out over the water where we listened to the waves bringing in the tide to the front lawn, watched the moon shimmer over a nearly 180 degree water view that looked out to...well, Landsend in England? We were transported... More

We stayed at the 8th Maine a few weekends ago. We were on Pesks for a family reunion. My husband and I stayed downstairs. Room was clean and bed comfortable. My sisters stayed upstairs. Rooms were a bit larger and bathroom was nicer. We would definitely stay here again.

We had a wonderful time on our vacation. We have been there many, many times before. The new management is very accommodating and relaxed.Love the outdoor shower, the view of the ocean from the back porch and the relaxed feeling you get. Just like, no, better than it used to be.

What the 8th Maine offers is far and beyond what any hotel can offer- it offers 'an experience'. I had stayed here over 20 years ago and wanted my family to experience it as well. The stunning water views, the charm of the main hall, the historical relevance, and the convenience of having kitchen facilities right at your fingertips were... More

The 8th Maine was the setting for our large group and it accommodated us very well. I was glad that we visited it one month ahead to understand the cooking set up. We came prepared and Todd and Mike were very helpful. I loved the "old timey" atmosphere and the view from the porch was spectacular. The full moon and... More

This place is an absolute gem. Its is scenic, quiet, beautiful and romantic. Its friendly staff and simplicity focuses attention on the beauty of the island and simple pleasure - good conversation, reading on a porch rocking chair, sharing a meal in the kitchen. I loved it an can't wait to return again and again.

We have been staying at the 8th Maine with our family and friends for 20 years. Our most recent visit was the best yet! The staff was very courteous and helpful. Enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and will definitely be going back.

This place was so beautiful and friendly. The people that work here truly love the place and they are so nice and accommodating to guests. A very family oriented place but sitting on the back porch overlooking the water with a glass of wine is welcomed. Bringing your own food and cooking is acceptable and encouraged. Peaks Island is beautiful... More

Stayed one night to take part in Peaks to Portland swim. Wish I had booked the entire weekend so next time I will. Beautiful spot with big clean rooms. Have to share a bathroom but not a problem as it worth the saved money!
