We have been visiting the BPI for a few years now as a post-camp-pickup spot to hang out with our kids for a few days before getting back to our busy lives at home. It suits this purpose perfectly. It is friendly, relaxing, and serves good food in a beautiful setting. (My boys get every seafood/shellfish item on their menu... More

We went with friends to the Black Point Inn for drinks and a pub style dinner at sunset last night. The ambience of the place was terrific, the staff friendly but I felt cheated out of my $160 for four drinks, three fish and chips and a burger! Have to say that the food was underwhelming, so we won't be... More

Black Point Inn has become my favourite place in Maine, the Portland area. It is a quick drive from Portland. Once you are there the atmosphere is amazing, the fireplace is burning wood, a grand piano in the foyer welcomes you. Outside on the patio you look out onto the most peaceful view of the ocean. It is always a... More

For the second summer in a row we journeyed to this wonderful 140 year old traditional New England Hotel for a single meal with an old friend who has spent time there for many, many years. The hotel is situated on a point known as Prout's Neck and it is on an inlet of water that has direct access to... More

The location of the inn on Prout's Neck gave us ready access to an historic and scenic area where we otherwise might have felt unwelcome. The main dining room was rather stuffy, but the casual dining room was more comfortable and had better views over the water. The staff was friendly and helpful.

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

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
