“Just wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We had a surprise party for my husband's birthday at The Craignair and many of our friends and family stayed there as well. Michael and Joanne really impressed me with their knowledge of the area and local resources we could use for seafood, beer and wine. The food was absolutely amazing and the inn was decorated beautifully, both with our party decor as well as for Christmas. Joanne went above and beyond to set up tables and arrange our photos, favors etc. She also gave our guests a fantastic rate. I know everyone wants to go back again as they felt so much at home. Port Clyde and the St. George Peninsula is my husband's favorite place on earth - and Joanne and Michael helped us share that with all of our guests. Thank you!

We had an absolute blast hosting your husband's birthday party here!! What a treat to be a part of it! I'm still surprised you were able to keep such a big party a secret but you did a fantastic job! We enjoyed customizing the menu for your party--lobster stew in home-made bread boules and a dessert bar. It was great! Thanks for your kind words.

The Craignair Inn is a quaint old inn in a lovely, peaceful setting offering wonderful food, attentive service, and personable hosts...and all at a reasonable price. Joanne and Michael have put their hearts and souls into this place, and you will sense that when you stay here.

We stayed three nights recently, with several friends old and new, and attended a private party that was held in the spacious dining room overlooking the ocean. Although there were about 50 people at the party Joanne, Michael, and their staff handled the multi-course meal with ease.

And The drinks in front of the fire on a cold, snowy afternoon were most appreciated.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a private bath and ocean view.

The Craignair is such a special place. You arrive and feel as if the cares of the world are a million miles away! What a treat to read on the lawn, hike around the old quarry, enjoy a delicious dinner, and a delightful breakfast. It's terrific that the new young innkeepers can update the Inn as necessary and keep it's essential old coastal Maine feel. Very special!

We would love to return to Criagnair. It's a beautiful location, the inn was great, and the price reasonable. It was clean and comfortable, and the Inn Keepers, Michael and Joann were very welcoming and helpful. The locale and scenery were gorgeous, a great place for a hike, and relaxation.

Room Tip: We had a wonderful view facing the water. We were in the main house which I would certainly over st...

This was our second trip in a row to the Craignair. The Inn Keepers Michael and Joann got us quickly settled and informed us of our dinner arrangemnts. Dinner at the Craignair is so amazing that words can simply not describe the gourmet cuisine that they offer at such reasonable prices. Only the freshest seafood is served and the desserts, especially the blueberry cheesecake, are just incredible. You will be more than full, but please remember to save room for the cheesecake!! Our room was clean, spacious, and all amenities were properly stocked for the weekend. Breakfast is beyond what you expect at a typical B&B. Only fresh handmade choices are offered and again, you will leave with a full tummy!!
We have stayed here twice but will continue to make it our annual fall weekend away.

Joanne and Michael O'Shea were wonderful hosts, providing great service, outstanding food, and beautiful views. even going so far as announcing the bride and groom and keeping my flowers safe and sound...

Room Tip: upstairs was quieter if you don't mind stairs. it was well worth the effort.

Got married in Portland on August 18th and my wife and I shot up to Tenants Harbor for a few days of R&R. Perfect place, especially for us with our english bulldog. Great breakfast. Also had dinner there, which was lovely. And the walk to and around "the island" was quiet and pristine. Exactly what we were looking for. Oh and come to find out, friends who were at the wedding, had stayed there the week previous. Perfect spot for a quiet and quaint getaway.
