“Wonderful location, very clean and great breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2010

We just came back from spending three nights at the Moorings. This is a great location for accessing Reid State Park and surrounding town of Five Islands. We have been coming to this area for years and really enjoyed our stay at the Moorings. The place is spotless with great service and the owner was a wonderful host full of historical information about her great grandfather Walter Reid who donated his land to the state where Reid State Park exists today. I highly recommend a stay at the Moorings! Wonderful breakfasts as well!

We stayed for 4 nights at The Mooring and thoroughly enjoyed our stay despite the 10-12 mile trek to civilization. That being said, there are several really great eating spots within 5-6 miles as well including a fun lobster harbor dockside restaurant a mile away. This B&B is very much "as advertised" with all rooms having an open view of the ocean. This is also a B&B that likes to provide some extras for their guests beyond a full and complete buffet breakfast every morning. The have ice, drinks, and even offer wine, beer and snacks in the late afternoon. There are a lot of common area rooms in which to spread out and relax inside the house, some with TV and some with views, or fireplace, including a big outdoor deck overlooking the ocean. If you like a quiet getaway place without the street noise and traffic, this is ideal. The price make it a very good value considering all the little extras they do. Rooms are all good size, clean and bright and the owner has a good sense of hospitality and what guests like. Very charming old home that has been throughly renovated and updated. WiFi included.

We were exploring the coast of Maine and came across The Mooring Bed & Breakfast. It was exactly what we were looking for.

The hostess, Penny was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. She's a great cook also.

The Inn sits overlooking the ocean. It is a peaceful place and a great place to get away.

My husband and I got married in Georgetown this summer and spent 2 nights at the Mooring. It is a fabulous place. The innkeep makes a delicious breakfast that is eaten in a room with a view! The location, right on the ocean, is perfect. The grounds are well tended and the rooms are clean and nicely appointed.

This was the third consecutive year we stayed at the Mooring B & B, all of our visits in Sept and Oct.

Hostess Penny Barabe has done a most thoughtful job of catering to the needs of her guests. Guests have access to the entire premises, including a sun room and spacious deck overlooking the ocean and a quaint Spanish style room with satellite connected TV. Thus The Mooring feels more like an inn than a B & B.

There are five bedrooms, all with ocean views. The rooms have varied bed arrangements, from queens to twins. All have air conditioning and private baths. This being The Mooring's 4th year of operation, it is possible some of the mattresses need to be replaced. My wife and I found the twin mattresses in the Lighthouse Room to be a bit soft and sagging. We prefer firmer mattresses.

The breakfasts are delicious. They typically include sausage or ham, an egg or french toast specialty, fresh fruit salad, and blueberry muffins. Coffee is served at 7:00 and breakfast at 8:30.

Room rates are typical for coastal Maine, less costly off season.

The Georgetown peninsula is an unspoiled gem. If you are looking for a quiet, rural ocean getaway, Georgetown is for you. Reid State Park, with its two long sandy beaches and rocky headlands, is very near The Mooring. Entrance fee is $1.50/person/day. The beaches are not crowded. If you come early, you may even have them to yourself. We have seen bald eagles, seals, harbor porpoises, and many species of birds from the beaches. Kayakers will find a lot to explore on Georgetown.

There are not many eateries on Georgetown, but the few that do exist are fabulous. Five Islands Lobster Company offers boiled lobsters, steamed clams, corn, etcetera on the wharf. Watch the lobstermen bring their catches in while you dine on local shellfish.

Robinhood Free Meeting House, in the middle of the Peninsula, offers five star dining. Make reservations in advance. All the menu items are delectable. I recommend the "rare" tuna appetizer and the crab cakes.

The Josephine Newman sanctuary has hiking trails with attractive views of the coves. Several boat owners offer excursions by arrangement. Georgetown Pottery is worth visiting, as is the Maine Maritime Museum in nearby Bath.

If you are seeking roller coasters and lively nightlife, Georgetown is not for you. But if you want an unspoiled ocean experience, you will adore Georgetown. The Mooring blends perfectly with the idyllic ambiance. We plan to revisit The Mooring every year indefinitely.

Visited Georgetown Island for a friend's wedding at the neighboring Grey Havens Inn and were lucky enough to land a room, at the very last minute, at this beautiful B&B just down the road. We stayed two wonderful relaxing nights in the Violet room at the Mooring and spent the weekend exploring nearby towns (great for exploring, antiquing, & hiking) & scenic drives along Rt 1 & Reid State Park. The 5 bedroom house is less than 1/4 mile from the Grey Havens and, in my opinion, far more beautiful. The view, for which Grey Havens is known, is largely the same from the patio of the Mooring, as they're constructed along the same coastline. Our room was beautifully & simply appointed with a light country feel: quilted bedding, flowery decorm, bright white walls, & a perfect cushioned window seat for reading up on things to do in the area. Breakfast was served every morning at 8am, and places were set in the sunlit garden room, ready for coffee conversation. On nice days you could bring your breakfast out to the huge patio facing the water & have your coffee while watching the lobster boats head out. The kitchen is stocked with anything you could ever need, including wine & coffee, fruits & munchies of all sorts. The maid service was wonderful & the house was spotless overall. The hostess was cheerful, kind & helpful with everything. The Mooring was our first B&B experience which I've been both anticipating and fearing at the same time -- it was nothing short of perfect in our minds and not at all claustrophobig or overbearing like I'd feared. We definitely recommend the Mooring for the ideal quiet, lovely weekend along the Maine mid-coast.

My husband and I came across The Mooring B & B after we had spent a relaxing afternoon at Reid State Park 1/2 mile beach late August, 2004. We were trying to figure out what town we should head to in order to find a place to stay for the evening. About a half mile from the park, we saw The Mooring B & B sign and it looked lovely from the road.

The friendly owner, Penny showed me the rooms available. As she was booked for the week-end for a wedding we were only able to spend one night but the room was a beautiful, comfortable room with a window which opened to the ocean and through which a lovely breeze blew through. There are many antiques in the home, many of which were owned by Penny's ancestors. Penny's great-grandmother owned the premises until three years ago when she died at the age of 103 years of age. Penny then did the renovations necessary to bring the rooms, electrical, etc. up to standard. The result is a comfortable home situate by the ocean.

Penny welcomed us and took us on a tour of the house after we were settled in the room. We were made to feel very welcome--we could sit on the deck at night with coffee and tea (kettle, mugs, coffee pot, tea bags, sugar, milk and cream all provided in the kitchen or in little corners through the house), or we could walk down a path to sit and watch the boats returning from a day's fishing. Reading material was plentiful and ranged from touring around Maine to the latest in news.

Breakfast was awesome!!! As we enjoyed coffee/tea, we watched the boats leaving for the day's fishing and enjoyed quiet moments down by the ocean. Even the family which included children had no complaints about breakfast and the children had plenty of room to play outside. We started with coffee, tea, juice, hot muffins, cereal, followed by waffles, eggs, hot toast, and homemade jams.

Had Penny not been booked for the week-end, we would have stayed another night or two. When we return to Maine, we will be trying to get a room at The Mooring.
