“beautiful location and lovely rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Unfortunately, we arrived here as it was getting dark already. I was really looking forward to this place as I loved the photos I had seen. But the first thing we saw as we drove in were some pretty unpleasant Halloween decorations, which we realized were everywhere we turned. We were in Maine to enjoy the atmosphere and location of this part of the state, not to be subjected to kitschy and disturbing images. However, if you ignore all the draculas and monsters, the rooms themselves were lovely, decorated in a mariner's theme and with the most incredible view of the water and hills surrounding it. This was also the only place that didn't offer breakfast out of all the places we stayed, and it was a little inconvenient.

Our Halloween decorations have been an attraction that all our customers have come to enjoy and look forward to each year. They are festive and fun and bring smiles to MOST people that enter onto our property. We make no apologies for them and we will continue them every year in the future for the hundreds of customers that enjoy them so much.

This is a quiet, extremely clean and comfortable room. The management has taken care that most every detail has been thought of. The landscaping is very attractive, and it is evident done with pride. No breakfast is provided but coffee/tea is available in the lobby area. Would recommend this location. Great place to spend several days.

Room Tip: Second floor has wonderful views

The Inn was recommended by a friend and it totally met our expectations. The people were very friendly, the room was clean and refreshing. Views were wonderful but unfortunately it was a little cool to enjoy the pool. It was the most comfortable out of our three reservations and the most economical. We would revisit and recommend this Inn highly.

Room Tip: Second floor has great view.

Nice, well kept inn. Great view. The chairs on the balcony need to be higher or the railings lower. When sitting and relaxing, the railings block the view that you are expecting. The binoculars in the room were a nice touch.

Room Tip: Our room two doors from the office had a nice view.

Everything was perfect! great location, beautifully landscaped building, gorgeous grounds with a walk down to the water and immaculate and charming rooms. I would recommend this establishment to everyone but please don't fill it up. I plan on returning next year!

Very nice Inn, very clean, good
location. Rooms nicely decorated . Only compliant , no coffee pot in rooms. Coffee in lobby 7AM to 10AM. Some people are early risers. We had a king. On top floor wonderful view but was hard to see unless you stood up when sat down railing was right at eye level. Tall chairs and table would be ideal.

Every room on this property has a beautiful water view with a patio or balcony provided to enjoy it. We stayed three nights in August and only regretted leaving the space to see the coastal sights.

The grounds are immaculate with a well-kept pool and chairs waterside.
