Went to the Forks for a weekend with my sisters. We have a camp on Moxie...due to social distancing, I was unable to stay the nights with them. Got a room at the Inn and loved it! The room was clean and comfy! Had spectacular view!! Had dinner one night, breakfast both mornings, food was great. Presentation was amazing! Emily was great! Enjoyed meeting her! Would absolutely stay again!

We happened upon Inn by the River when we were out snowmobiling with our 6 yr old and needed a break for a snack. Instantly our daughter and Steve (Mr Grubby) made a connection and became fast friends. We ended up coming back to help Steve feed the deer the next morning, and stopped several other times during our week in the area for gas, meals, and to visit. All of the staff are amazing, everyone we encountered was so nice and ready for conversation any time we stopped. The food is phenomenal and better than your normal snowmobiling stop. We will definitely stay here next time we come back to Maine to snowmobile again!!

our family decided to extend our weekend snowmobile trip by an extra day and were able to find rooms at the inn at the last minute. I can’t recommend this place enough. Clean, friendly, and fantastic restaurant- pub. Was family friendly and the owners were very nice. I had salmon for dinner and it was great. Woke up to the local herd of deer being fed outside the windows and the kids were thrilled. Thank you to the inn by the river at the forks for a lovely experience.

First ride of the season and are so lucky that we get to stay at the Inn. We love this place and no matter when we come or who is working we get the very best service. Great food - the cleanest rooms - crackling fire and the nicest most accommodating people. Special shout out to Emily - you were amazing!! Thanks to everyone who makes this place feel like home.
