Chris makes the Newkirk Inn extra special. He goes out of his way for his guests. Carrying luggage, accomodating food desires- and really gives guests his time and attention! The home has been wonderfully restored! Restful rooms! Breakfast was homemade and very good- fresh fruit-hot eggs burritos- super good! If you want to experience more in your travels I always...

I had a wonderful stay at The Newkirk Inn. I was warmly welcomed by Chris and Cheryl and shown in to my lovely room complete with sitting area with desk, bedroom and bathroom. Beautifully appointed and comfortably laid out, it was a real treat to stay at The Newkirk. The inn's location is perfect and is easy walking distance to... More

Thanks Susan! I have to say that many of the guests have been pleased with the "Museum in the Streets" self guided tour. It's been a wonderful addition to our town! More

Comfortable room. Included a microwave, small fridge, television, but no clock/alarm. Chris D was great host, immediately available each morning to assist with continental breakfast. As I was visiting Damariscotta (to the north), that town just don't have much for lodging. Brunswick (to the south) has many options but is further away. Wiscasset was a nice compromise location, with the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! I removed the alarm clocks from rooms as most guests are using their phones or tablets for clocks. My decision was based on that 90% of the time, I would find the clocks unplugged as guests needed the outlet to charge their phone or the display on the clock was... More

Our host Chris, was the best! He welcomed us warmly and made us feel immediately relaxed and at home. Our first floor room was beautifully decorated with lovely antiques and a very comfortable bed. We had an adjoining sitting room complete with colorful books about the local attractions and interesting sights and history. We slept very well that night! Breakfast... More

As stated my others, Chris the owner is a Superstar "Innkeeper". He's welcoming, cordial, friendly, helpful and runs the cleanest a most charming B&B we've ever been to. We stayed in the Camden room which, of course, was 5-star and had the softest and most comfortable bed we slept on away from home.

I recently spent four nights at Newkirk Inn and I enjoyed every moment that I spent there. Chris was a wonderful host, my room was spacious and comfortable(downstairs suite)and it was appointed with every amenity one could want or need(including a small heater in the bathroom). As a solo traveler, I felt safe and secure and I loved coming "home"... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review! So glad you enjoyed your stay. The first floor room is called "Alna" and is our largest suite and for those staying more than one night, it can serve as a great "home base". More

Finally back in the UK and over the jet lag! Had a lovely stay at this Inn on 14th September. Welcomed by Cheryl who was painting the outside of the upstairs windows on our arrival. She takes great pride in her home and it shows in all the lovely little details in the rooms. After we settled in we met... More

Just returned from a terrific 3-night stay at the Newkirk Inn. It was our first visit and we'll be back. The Camden room--well, suite--was roomy and bright, with a large separate sitting room. The entire inn was nicely decorated, and very clean. The hosts were helpful and friendly, and the location was perfect for us. What more do you need?... More

The proprietors of Newkirk Inn are great people, both helpful and friendly while still unobtrusive. The breakfast is good and the place is spotless. We were given excellent advice on where to eat and what to see in the village The little dogs who live there are sweet and shy and add to the warm feeling of the place.

We recently stayed at the Newkirk Inn and had a very pleasant experience. We stayed in the front "pink" room which had been impressively stenciled by Cheryl. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. Chris was helpful in providing suggestions for dinner and we had an engaging conversation on a range of topics. He was very willing to... More

Thanks for the kind review. The pink room aka Boothbay room features a Williamsburg stencil and Spruce floors (the boards are all from the same tree). The room is located in the front on the second floor. It also has wonderful light all day. The road noise is there and weekends are better than weekdays. For those who struggle with... More
