By city standards this may be remote, but country folk would say "it is just down the road a piece". I jumped off Route 1 and took 144 and kept going and going. I was begining to think that I had made a wrong turn when the Tarbox Inn came into view. This old Maine house, which could tell countless... More

This charming Inn, although somewhat remote, is a delight. The food and hospitality are clearly worth the drive down Westport Island. We Happened to arrive in Swiss Night, and had a fondue to die for. Treat yourself to this and you'll be back again soon to spend several days.

N43°54.081' W69°42.523' We left Wiscasset after dark for the Squire Tarbox Inn with only the satellite navigation knowing where to go. We got the feeling entering an unknown dark world, driving along country roads without any clue of our position. After a half hour, suddenly we noticed lights in the dark and entered the remote world of hotel guests enjoying... More

My husband and I stayed here on our road trip around New England last October. What an amazing place - bit of a drive to get there but well worth it. The best surprise was the food in the restaurant - amazing standard and cooked by the husband and daughter owners. Breakfast was equally amazing and they even jump started... More

We came to the Squire tarbox Inn on our honeymoon 26 years ago. We felt the need to get away for a long weekend and wanted to see if the Inn was still in existence. So happy to find it was albeit under different management. It is now run by a very accomplished and decorated Swiss chef and his wife,... More

Having had dinner at Squire Tar Box a couple of times we can only recommend it as the best in the area. Reservations are required and it's a bit off the beaten path, but definitely worth it. Classic European or American, venison or fish, or anything else - just terrific, in a wonderful setting. Only place we know where you... More

tranquility, a warm welcome, good food cooked using fresh produce...a feeling that you are in your own home, only being pampered- really lovely experience. to wake in the morning and watch the wild turkeys grazing, then to be welcomed by the dogs. lots to see in the neighbourhood- a wonderful break, especially after the city!

We recently returned from a 10 day vacation in Maine and fortunately spent 2 nights at the Squire Tarbox Inn. Ronni greeted us upon arrival, showed us around, gave us the history of the Inn and took us to our beautiful, spacious room. We looked out over the gardens and it was beautiful. We were given wonderful suggestions of sights... More

We traveled to Maine over Labor Day weekend and renewed our acquaintance with the Squire Tarbox Inn where we had stayed about 25 years ago. Everything about the stay was great. Lara greeted us and showed us around. We spent time by the water enjoying the late afternoon sun. We had a pre-dinner drink on the porch watching the sunset... More

My sister an I found the Squire Tarbox in on our first sister trip to Maine – what a treasure. Our first impression was that it was a bit far from town, which is true, but the atmosphere and excellent food was well worth it. When we arrived Lara, daughter of owners Ronni and Mario, escorted us to our rooms... More
