If you want a lovely real slice of Maine experience this is the place for you. Be sure to read the informational book... it is humorous and filled with good ideas for all interests. As native Mainers we are going to return to this wonderful place.

Nice staff. Clean room but dated. Beautiful harbor view. Breakfast was muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, and toast. Enjoyed viewing lobster boat races from the deck. Overall very nice but room got a little warm for my comfort. We were there in July and had some hot weather. With windows open and fan it was much better at night. Nice binder... More

I have returned to Deer Isle many times in the past since I have family there. This was my first time staying at the Inn on the Harbor. It is the perfect place to be for this celebration or any other times you come to the island. The staff is so accommodating and the location is perfect for walking to... More

The building is old and the rooms could stand up dating but the owners are welcoming and friendly and eager to even help strangers who walk in off the street as well as the guests. My room at ground level opened up right on to Main Street so there was little privacy.Bay view rooms in the back are better if... More

The Inn on the Harbor was a great place to stay. Christina and Kelly were very helpful and had our room ready as we arrived a little early on Saturday. While the room was a little small (The Roseway) -the view of the harbor and the deck more than made up for it. The breakfast was delicious and generous. We... More

My sister and I were tired of driving and loved Stonington. I was skeptical of what appeared to be a tiny Inn, but we checked it out anyway. We are so glad that we did ! We had a room with two comfy beds right on the harbor. It was reasonably priced and perfect!

This is a modest, comfortable and charming inn situated on the main street in Stonington. It is right on the waterfront, with private and common decks overlooking the harbour and the ocean. The innkeeper is engaging, the sleeping comfortable, and although only breakfast is served, there is an excellent restaurant just steps away, also on the harbour. This is the... More

Just spent two nights on idyllic Stonington Harbor at Inn on the Harbor. Relaxing to say the least. The innkeeper was thoughtful right down to photocopying maps for nearby trails and attractions. Breakfast was modest but all that we really needed. The view is spectacular and this low-key inn should be on your list if you want clean accommodations with... More

I've been to Stonington several times because I've had to interview customers in the area, and staying at the Inn makes even a long and tightly packed business trip a delight. Stay in a room with a fireplace, please, and wake up in the morning to the eerie sounds of foghorns, the engines of lobster boats getting ready to go... More
