“Pemaquid By-The-Sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Hotel Pemaquid has a lot of charm and is situated at a beautiful location very near the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse. Service is good and the rooms are clean and feature – beside a comfortable bed – both a modern flat screen and a refrigerator. The rocky coastline beneath the lighthouse is impressive and the island of Monhegan can be seen in the horizon. The hotel has nice rooms – and old furniture along with classic decorations and fine antiques add lots of atmosphere to the lobby and other rooms near the reception area on the first floor of the main building. Coffee on the porch in the morning is free. Prices for a stay – compared to European standards – are quite high. Our room was a so-called suite and cost USD 160 per night. The hotel has no restaurant – and for breakfast you need to go to the very nice Sea Gull shop and restaurant next to the lighthouse, around 500 meters from the hotel. From the Sea Gull dining room you have a beautiful ocean view.

This is a grand old hotel, right on the ocean. It is a block from the lighthouse. It is clean and well maintained. I stayed in the main part of the Hotel and with my window open, I could hear the waves. We had a cheery fire in a big old fireplace in the evening which was just perfect after exploring the coast.

Our family stayed in the annex which included rooms with two twins, a queen, bath, and an efficiency kitchen and sitting area. Location was divine for lighthouse visits and evening walks. We used it as home base to explore the mid coast region. Needed three more days-- or a lifetime more! Room was clean, beds comfy, inn front porch delightful. Felt like home. Hated to leave. Will be back soon!

My husband and I have been staying at the Hotel Pemaquid for more than 7 years. Every stay has been wonderful, and this visit over the Labor Day Weekend was not exception. We generally stay in the separate cottages, not the hotel. The room is always clean, nicely appointed and very comfortable. It is very welcoming, and very Maine. If you want lavish, perhaps you will find it at the Bradley Inn up the road, but you will pay for the privilege. Obviously, we think our experience is preferable. The Innkeepers go out of their way to make sure their guests are satisfied. In fact, when my husband sustained a minor injury, the wife of this team, Judy, readily supplied sincere sympathy and an icepack. I had no hesitation about asking her because she's that kind of person--she wants you to have good memories of your stay. And, of course, the hotel is a stone's throw from the delightful Sea Gull restaurant, which overlooks the waves crashing against the ancient rocks at the Point. For a truly memorable experience, visit the Hotel Pemaquid, and tell the Inn keepers that Carol and Harvey from NY said hello and we look forward to seeing them soon!

We knew we were in for a treat after mailing in our check, and getting a prompt post card in return. Who does that these days? The Hotel Pemaquid does. We loved our visit, didn't want to leave. If you want to get away from the thundering summer hordes, this is the place for you. The peninsula was quiet, peaceful, laid back, beautiful, the lighthouse and shore, less than a minute's walk away. Our room was tastefully decorated, the summer breeze through the window screens divine, a perfect place to relax and unwind. The Hardy Boat ferry to Monhegan Island (a MUST visit) is about 10 minutes away. Try the Samoset (sic) restaurant for dinner, excellent. For breakfast, we enjoyed the Bristol Diner, both just short drives up the peninsula. Lest I forget, the bed was incredibly comfortable, slept like a rock...........far and away my favorite hotel ever.

Such a beautiful hotel and friendly staff. Gorgeous lobby and inviting front porch with lots of outdoor furniture and rocking chairs. Complimentary coffee (with cream!) offered from 6-10am and it's so relaxing to start the morning with a cup of joe and a pleasant front porch. We reluctantly booked a room with a shared bath, and never saw the other people. I'm pretty sure that other room was occupied, but there was no sign that they'd ever used the bathroom, so it felt very private.

Had enough of the summer heat? Come to Maine where its cool and the skies are crystal clear. The best thing about this charming hotel is the location. A very short walk to the lighthouse and crashing surf, an experience of a life time. I could sit on the rocks for hours and watch the waves smash and spray. We loved the hotel, we found it clean, the bed was comfortable and the people working there were very friendly. I thought their rates were very reasonable. Yes, I could hear some of the guests through the walls, but so what? It is basically a very quiet place. Enjoyed sitting on the porch rocking in my chair sipping a glass of wine, nice. The hotel has a washer you can use and a ice machine, but alas, no ice buckets...what's with that? Hope you are lucky enough to spend some time in this hotel and enjoy the best of Maine.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel Pemaquid offers a step into yesteryear with a relaxing atmosphere that is reminiscent of early twentieth century summering in the area complete with antiques and a restoration of many original hotel features. We are the closest hotel to the Pemaquid Lighthouse,our rooms are offered at reasonable rates, all rooms have flat screen televisions and refrigerators, and there is internet available but service on the point can be spotty. Many of our guests take walks along the rocky coast, eat lots of seafood, and spend time relaxing with a book on our porch. We hope you consider the Hotel Pemaquid when in midcoast Maine. ... more   less
