In spite of a foggy evening, there was NO DAMPER on the welcome feeling of the dining hall and staff at "The Inn". We all enjoyed delicious meals ranging from vegetarian for one of our party, to seafood for our guests "from away", while I loved the steak Au Poivre. Save some room for the blueberry pie with ice cream!!!!!... More

The most beautiful peaceful location. All of the kids had a great time playing together. The views are breathtaking. We loved staying the in Vestry, it was very intimate and private. It was perfect that we could rent out all the rooms for our guests in that building and have a private area. All the rooms are unique and inviting.... More

We had such a blast and it was such an honor to host your wedding! We are able to host up to about 50 guests in our dining room for an event like this, so your group was just perfect. So glad the weather held, too and you were able to get lovely photographs of the ceremony out on the... More

The Craignair Inn is a wonderful place from which to explore the incomparable beauty of Maine's coastal culture. The innkeepers provide a comfortable and relaxed environment. The scent of homemade muffins waft into room before heading down to a homemade healthy breakfast! Thank you for a wonderful visit! We will return.

We have stayed here two summers now and loved it both times. The rooms are so cute and very comfortable. The hosts are super friendly and welcoming. Our son talks about Mimi, their dog, all year long until he gets to see her again. We will definitely visit again next year!

We stay here once or twice a year and have done so for over twenty years. Joanne and Michael are the current owners and they've improved the place every year, a ton of work and love invested. The Inn isn't perfect, but close. It may perhaps be perfect when you factor in the setting. Clark Island is off the beaten... More

I spent 3 nights here, and found the hosts to be warm, knowledgeable and welcoming. The food was great, and the location allows for both a quiet sojourn and a basis for exploring the marvelous midcoast area from Pemaquid to Rockport and beyond. Unreservedly recommended.

We appreciate your kind words and thank you for sharing that the location is great for exploring along the coast! We're very near Rockland, and about 2 hours from either Portland or Bar Harbor. Glad you enjoyed breakfast and dinner while you were here! Thanks again! Joanne and Michael More

The Inn is accessible, at the end of a road, yet with a private Island for walking, and appreciating the serenity of nature. The inn is clean and very comfortable. The views of the sea are breathtaking, especially from the dining room. The food was incredible. May sound trite, but very true. Each meal not just delicious but artistically prepared,... More

The real Maine is out your window with the beach at low tide and the islands in the background. At higher tides the lobster boats are working in the distance. Rooms are comfortable with excellent beds, especially in the main building. Walks over the causeway to the quarries are special. Dinner and breakfast in the restaurant are outstanding. The inn...

we were the only guests the first day, which can be a bit lonely; bedroom ok, bathroom very nice, very good views of the harbour. Breakfast ok, funny combo of omelette and French toast.

Thank you very much for taking time to send a review. April is well before the summer tourist season and it is typical to be the only guests staying at that time. We are sorry you felt lonely!
