I had not been to Maine for over 40 years until last week when , with the wife's permission I went house hunting on Deer Isle, Maine. My Realtor recommended the Inn on the Harbor and I could have not had a more pleasant stay. It was so quiet in the town that I was the only guest at the... More

My wife and I were lucky to find this relaxing seaside place to celebrate our 50th wedding. The village, Stonington, was not crowded with tourists. It was tranquil, but offered several art galleries, for artsy types like us. The location on Deer Island and Stonington harbor offered beautiful scenes to photograph. The inn was comfortable, with rooms that had large... More

We've stayed at Inn on the Harbor several times and just love it. We prefer rooms that face the water, as we love to enjoy a glass of wine just enjoying the view and watching the lobstermen at work. Our favorite room so far is the Victory Chimes, but it wasn't available so we stayed in the Angelique. Still lovely,... More

The location is the best, maybe in the state, with a large deck for all guests. The harbor is a very busy lobster boat unloading site. Several lobster buyers are within view which adds to the natural beauty viewed from the deck. Several rooms face the harbor. And the breakfast food is very good. The bed was comfortable and the...

In retrospect we were so glad we had been recommended to stay a few days at Stonington for our first experience of Arcadia, as it truly is a real working Maine harbour and untouristy - the very very "quiet side" ! The Inn at Stonington is a great little B&B right in the middle of the village, with friendly staff... More

I so love the Inn. It's laid back, comfy and everyone there is terrific. Christina has put together a great book that provides all types of interesting and thoughtful info on the Island, Maine, things to do, where to go and what to see. I love this personalized touch! Stonington is a wonderful village full of wonderful people. Each time... More

The room was nice with a door that opened to the deck/ dock. The staff were exceptionally nice, breakfast was good, room clean . . . my only complaint was the noise on the harbor that started at 4 5 am.

For starters, Stonington was our favorite Maine coastal town. The Inn on the Harbor was a big part of that overall experience. No misnomer, the Inn is right on the harbor, with most rooms facing the harbor and plenty of deck space for those that don't. We loved just chilling on the upper deck with binoculars taking in all the... More

My wife and I had a wonderful room on the first floor which had access to the deck on the water. The lobster boats leaving in the morning DID NOT WAKE ME as I had been told that they might. Clean, comfortable with charming touches. The beds gave us a great nights sleep. Breakfast was basic and in a very... More

We checked in but our room was so unpleasant we had to leave. I will admit the views are gorgeous but the room left a lot to be desired. This is was so depressing and dated that we decided to call it a loss and book another hotel room in Bar Harbor where they have more than one reataurant open.

CSHIPPS, Owner at Inn on the Harbor, responded to this review

One of the best aspects of being an Innkeeper is being able to make people happy. And one of the most important responsibilities of an Innkeeper is to respond wholeheartedly to a guest who is not happy. Unfortunately we were not given the opportunity to know that these guests were unhappy. They checked in, never even put their bags in... More
