We visited the Tidewater Motel in September, and the season was coming to an end. It was an easy walk from the ferry from Rockland, and in the centre of the very quiet Main Street. There was an excellent lobster restaurant across the road. We slept in a comfortable room right over the incoming and outgoing tides. We only stayed... More

I've always wanted to be near the ocean and this place is right on top a tidal bridge, which provided endless hours of entertainment and I was determined to witness the exact moment the tide switched! We shared a deck with friends and cooked out one night since many of the restaurants in town are starting to shut down. The... More

Stayed here a number of times over the years. Always a warm and welcoming place to stay and explore the Island from. Vinalhaven is a special place to visit and should be on your bucket list. The Tidewater is the most convinient location to experienc and enjoy true Maine Island living.

We recently spent 3 nights at Tidewater on Main St in Vinalhaven. The motel is smack in the middle of main street, what little there is of it. It sits on a bridge under which water flows swiftly either in or out 24/7. Our balcony in room #10 overhung this water barrage. It provided me endless enjoyment as did the... More

Great location. Can walk from the ferry & our tiny little room ( #18) had a teeny deck w/ chairs overlooking the harbor. Beautiful view. Perfect place to be on the 4th of July. But don't expect too much...no lobby, no one on duty (maybe it was the holiday??) & limited breakfast, but only spot in town. Did have some... More

This motel is situated over an inlet where water rushes in and out under the motel with the tides. We had a room over looking the cove and I never got tired of watching the 10 to 15 foot tide going in and out. We had a room on the 1st floor the 1st night and the rushing water was... More

There are not many places to stay on Vinalhaven. The Tidewater offers basic accommodations with beautiful views and very friendly service. The view from my deck was awesome and the staff truly went out of their way to make sure we were all taken care of. I look forward to returning here again.

The place has it all... scenery from the room, comfort, and great location.The proprietor is very helpful and the room is definitely set up to provide a comfortable and welcoming stay. The location in the center of town is great and the bicycles that can be rented are right outside the door.

I spent 2 nights at the Tidewater motel in the charming island of Vinalhaven. This motel is rather quaint in that furnishings are oldand some doors don't work well (not the entrance to the unit, fortunately), But the place is in a great location, center of town, within walking distance of the ferry terminal, and right over the tidal channel....

We stayed here July 2012 for about 3 nights in the mill race room and enjoyed it very much. The people at tidewater were very helpful in recommending activities and accomadating our requests ie, last minute rental car & transportation to the basin. We have only been kayaking a handful of times but kayaking at the basin has been our... More
