My wife and I recently needed some time to decompress so we took a leisurely ride up US Route 1 in Maine. We spent a night at the Craignair Inn in Spruce Head. If you enjoy a place with some history this is for you. The Inn was originally a boarding house for people working the quarry on nearby Clark... More

We have stayed at the Craignair three times over the past two years...in summer and fall. We have loved every visit. We always feel welcomed by Joanne. The breakfasts from Michael are great...as are the dinners. The view from the porches is wonderful. There are crafts and art displays from the area decorating the main rooms and these are very...

I've stayed at Craignair many times, and look forward to it every time I go. It has one of my favorite porches to sit and relax on along the coast. The view is beautiful and expansive. Mike makes fantastic homemade breakfasts and Joanne is incredibly welcoming and friendly. Their dog, Mimi, is very sweet and is such a treat to... More

We originally honeymooned here in 1988 & last stayed here in 1991 during the hottest August week on record in Maine. More on that later. This time we stayed for 3 days in early October and the Fall weather was more typical of what we expected. The Inn was originally built to house quarry workers and it has a cozy... More

Thank you for your thorough review! I think you've described the Inn and the environs really nicely and will help other travelers with their decision to stay with us. Regarding air conditioning, we do have it in the Vestry Annex rooms (#21 and above) and since the main Inn is situated so closely to the water it's rarely an issue.... More

Our corner room (#2) was great... windows on two sides facing the water, quiet, and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Owners (Joanne & Mike) were friendly & helpful, and worked very hard to make their Inn comfortable for their guests. Their doggie (Mimi?) was a friendly little ambassador for the Inn. We enjoyed walking onto Clark Island and relaxing on the... More

A month ago my husband and I spent a night at the Craignair Inn & Restaurant in Spruce Head, Maine. The accommodations were great and the staff were very friendly. From the porch the view of the ocean is great and we spent a beautiful evening on the porch swing while having an after-dinner drink. The dinner was delicious and... More

We were excited about staying here, but what we found was a room that looked, smelled, and felt like of old motel room. It had old creaky furniture, a tiny bathroom, and the towels are not refreshed unless you ask. The breakfast was not bad. We knew that it was a pet friendly place, but we did not expect to... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry you didn't find us approachable enough to discuss your concerns face to face. We weren't aware of any guests leaving unhappy and can't improve upon our service if we don't know there are concerns.

I loved the location of this place, and I like old Inns, and realize you can't expect an old house to be without some creaks and imperfections. Our breakfast was very nice, and it was great taking a hike to the quarry, but the place itself had a few too many issues for me to give it a great review.... More
