We stayed at this charming inn a few years ago and really enjoyed our visit. The dinner there was quite tasty too. The rooms reminded me of my childhood and visits to old shore towns, before they were overtouristed. Too many tacky restaurants and souvenir shops ruined many places, but not Monhegan. But too many non-environmental tourists ruined the building of fairy houses here because they stripped bark off the trees and moss off the ground. Residents have posted signs asking tourists to NOT build more fairy houses. Instead, make one in your own backyard at home.
