“Top Hotel in Freeport, Maine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

We enjoyed an excellent 2 nights in Freeport's finest hotel, conveniently located a short block from the center of town (& shopping). It is casually elegant, with a large drawing room where tea is served in the afternoons. Our 2 room suite with fireplace & queen bed was perfect for our stay. We were greeted with a fruit & cheese platter in our room on arrival. The friendly staff left a prepared fire in the fireplace, along with ample wood, and replenished both the next morning. The bathroom was large, although there was no stall shower. There are 2 dining options: the casual Broad Arrow Tavern, and the upscale, fine cuisine Maine Dining Room. We didn't eat in the tavern, but had a drink at the bar. The bartender was friendly, but the drinks were served in tiny glasses - a turn-off. See my separate review of the excellent Maine Dining Room. A buffet breakfast was included, and there were ample offerings, including fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, breakfast meats, toast and pastries. Every staff person we encountered was pleasant - it must be something in the water in Maine. If you're going to Freeport, this is THE place to stay. The suites are very popular and book quickly, I'm told. We really enjoyed our stay here. I definitely recommend the Harraseeket Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel do receive traffic noise in the morning, although the suites, which...

Thank you for your review! Believe it or not, your comment about the size of the drink glasses in the Broad Arrow Tavern has instigated a change in our glass ware. We're upgrading! Thank you so much for bringing this matter to our attention and we hope to see you again soon!

I cannot say enough nice things about the Harraseeket Inn. It was my first visit to Freeport, and they went out of their way to make sure my stay was wonderful. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary, and I happened to mention this when booking our stay. When we arrived in our room, we found a lovely card and a fruit platter wishing us a happy anniversary. The complimentary breakfast was AMAZING! The pumpkin pancakes were quite a delight. The inn is in the perfect location...literally less than a 5 minute walk to outlet shopping. We will definitely be back to stay at the Harraseeket Inn again!!

Just wanted to share the wonderful time spent at the Inn. We were invited to a wedding and we were treated so well. The room was beautiful and the staff very helpful. We had breakfast every morning and it was delicious and healthy. We appreciated all the use of Maine produce and the green concept of recycling. I would definitely recommend this Inn to family and friends. We hope to come back and spend more time with you all. Thanks again for the wonderful time, we have great memories and pictures to share.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Freeport. Walking distance to LL Bean and other shopping. The staff was helpful with restaurant recommendations for dinner. Breakfast was included and was very extensive and tasty. We chose a king bed room and slept very well. We would stay here again.

Nicely maintained Inn in Freeport, Maine. For business or leisure. Located near shopping area and the main LLBean Store. Afternoon reception, two restaurants with lounges. The five star " Maine Dinning Room" has superb food and 1st class service.
If you get the weekend "shopper's" package chose this restaurant and it's included for one night in the price of your room. Breakfast daily is also included.

How do you fault a place that had a nice room, nice food and nice staff. Just felt that the senior staff, in the breakfast dining room and at the front desk, made me feel that they were doing me a favour by letting me stay there. They just made me feel uncomfortable.

I'm so sorry you were made to feel uncomfortable at the front desk and in the dining room. Our staff is outstanding at guest services, always going above and beyond to make sure everyone's stay is excellent. I'm not sure who you mean by senior staff but I would like very much to get more details regarding your service. If you could email me directly at nadianichols@aol.com, I would appreciate it. Again, our apologies that we failed you in our hospitality and we will do all we can to make sure this never happens again.

We tried making dinner reservations. No luck. No one seems to answer the phone when we were switched to the dining room. Two hours trying. Also left our number and no one returned our call. Give me a break. Disorganized comes to mind.

Apologies for your lack of service! I've spoken to our Maine Dining Room manager and she did try to call you back twice and left an message on your answering machine. She was very busy that morning fielding multiple reservation requests for Thanksgiving, which take longer than most brunch or dinner reservations. We're very sorry she was unable to take your call in a timely fashion and will look into activating a second phone line for these busy reservation times.
