Last time we stayed here we weren't even married... and there were goats on the property. This time, although I missed the goats, the chickens kept us company. Our room was big and comfortable and the dinner was superb. Grounds are gorgeous and calming and being in a great room built before 1800 still means something to me. Hosts were... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The food , especially, the dinners (on the desk as the sun was going now), was very very good. Their Crab cakes with Maine crab were the best we ever had. And the hospitality was outstanding. The room was charming, of good size and clean, but the supposed comfortable chair was not comfortable and should... More

A lovely and well-run inn, tucked away on an island that is a good 20-minutes drive from "downtown" Wiscasset. We initially were looking for somewhere closer to Wiscasset proper, where we had an event to attend, but couldn't find anything. Luckily, another inn referred us to the Squire Tarbox. You will not begrudge the extra drive once you get there,... More

This is hand's down one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Roni, Mario, and Laura were very kind and friendly. The Inn is beautiful and the property is surrounded by songbirds. You can walk trails right on the property. It is located close to Wiscasset but I didn't even bother to leave Westport Island instead I drove around the... More

We arrived at the Inn after a five and half hour drive on Thanksgiving evening to no power after a heavy wet snowstorm the day before. The innkeepers, Mario, Roni and their daughter Lara epitomized “Keep Calm and Carry On”. However there was no grin and bear it. Friends and neighbors had turned out to help with the festivities, candles... More

Thanksgiving 2014 was wonderful. Food and service superb and who would have known that the Inn did not have electricity because of an early snow storm! That is GRACE under fire and as a customer I would never had guessed this situation. Of course the generator in the front yard kind of announced the situation but it was placed far... More

As others have noted, this inn is off the beaten path. We found the peace and quiet of the rural setting a large part of its charm. We found it a great base for exploring the area. Yes, it was a drive to some places we visited but driving in this area of Maine and enjoying the scenery was an... More

Friendly warm welcoming clean takes you back to what it is all about, nature. A must return on our next visit to Maine. Great rooms no need for technology when the atmosphere both inside and outside are rewarding enough. The family farm is a great back to nature reality check for all that stay. It is nice to know that... More
