An older property situated on the exclusive Prouts Neck area of Scarborough, Maine. Old world charm, considerate service, and wonderful food choices. Our room was on the 3rd floor, with a small deck, two wicker chairs and a table overlooking the pool and a side view of the bay. Perfect for pre-dinner cocktails. On Monday there is a free cocktail... More

Incredibly charming. We had a terrific stay. The complimentary wine tasting was a pleasant surprise. Wine on Wednesday and Beer tasting on Thursday. It was a beautiful night to sit out on the porch and try a few different wines. My wife and I then enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the deck. The service was terrific and the food was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Black Point Inn in early June 2015. We found the room lovely, the staff quite friendly and very helpful. The location is wonderful. We had a bay view. Easy access to Portland for dining and sightseeing. Lovely breakfasts and dinner in the grill room.

gorgeous setting. Old grand dame on a bluff looking across water at mainland. Very scenic. We were out walking along the road and I needed some fluids so we took a chance. We got seated outside on the deck, beautiful, well appointed, great view. Service was good, attentive, a little slow. Nothing horrible. Good number of wait staff bustling around.... More

If you do not like or appreciate historic hotels and want modern conveniences then this is not the place for you. This hotel is small and quaint. It seems that there is always a wood fire burning in the fireplace even in the summer. It was nice to sit in front of the fire with a cup of tea or... More

I thought i would hate it, but it is a gem of a time gone by. We had a nice room with a balcony overlooking the water. Bathroom was the only minus, needs to be updated. Still all in all a great place. A great patio out front with a view of the beach and one of the best places... More

Room was spacious, staff friendly, but the dinner in the main dining room, The Point, was not an enjoyable experience. The long wait between drinks, dinner, coffee made the evening drag on to over 3 hours. Only three other tables were occupied at this time on a Friday evening.The fish was dry & stuffed with inedible shrimp mousse;, crab cakes... More

We has a delicious lunch courtesy of a coupon in the local paper. Delicious clam chowder and rolls. Beautiful view of the ocean. It looked like the Bahamas. Just Lovely. There is a wood burning fireplace in the sitting area and the grounds are beautiful as well.

Rooms quiet & cozy; meals outstanding; wait staff friendly and attentive. Couldn't have asked for anymore to enjoy our anniversary week-end getaway. Property is close to beach and hiking trails and the front desk is more than happy to take care of T-Times or in-room massage appts. We would definitely return in a heart beat!
