Chebeague (pron: shuh-Beeg) is one of Maine's most beautiful islands, currently home to 400 year-round residents, many whose families have been here for generations and many summer families. One of the few remaining inns that once dotted the coast and played an important part in Maine summers, Chebeague Island Inn has been thoughtfully restored to recapture its classic beauty and special place in the island community. Originally built in the 1880s, Chebeague Island Inn has been a landmark and destination for well over 100 years. Just 1.5 hours north of Boston and 25 minutes from the Portland International Jetport, getting to Chebeague Island Inn is easy; and once here you'll feel like you're a million miles away. Dining at Chebeague Island Inn is its own unique and memorable experience, marked by exquisite cuisine, delicious drinks and impeccable service. Featuring seasonal, local ingredients served in creative ways that enable the natural flavors to shine, there's sure to be a dish for everyone.

We arrived at the Inn about 3:00. We were very hungry. The bar area was closed until 4:30. They had no snack room, so we were left sitting there starving. The rooms we terrible. they were 10x12. No chairs, no closet. More like a monks room. The sink had rust marks. And, their ocean view, was almost no view. If one wanted to view the water, they had to sit in the bed. I cannt understand why they would charge extra for ocean view when there is not a real view. It was like a lumber camp. WE needed our phone charged. but there only could I not android. A charger for android costs about $30. We were so frustrated, we left the Inn and drove home, and had to swallow the cost of the room.

Property's Favorite Review
Fantastic service, rustic but modern and neat as a pin. Staff very helpful at all times and many choices of where to relax or walk or get exercise by golfing or bike riding. Beautiful natural flowers even though there in Oct. a few remained and were fantastic. Loved the lack of TV and media in general!

Stayed here for 2 nights recently. We love inns and B&B's so feel like we have a lot of experience. This inn is pricey but not because of the inn itself but rather the location. It's the only place to stay on the island and the views are beautiful and very 'Maine'. Every beach is unique and quiet. The inn boasts free bikes for touring the island but all 5 were always being used while we were there. We were lucky to have friends nearby who took is on a little tour of the island, so at least we saw the other end. The food was excellent and the waitstaff/bartenders were all pros and delightful. Shout out to Ben from Alabama! We usually stay at places that include a breakfast at that price point but CII does not. There is also really only 2 other small places to eat on the island. One was closed Monday and Tuesday when we were there so we at at the Inn exclusively. The porch was a lovely place to read and relax and get to know the other guests who felt like friends by the time we left (best part of traveling, I think). We paid premium $$$ for an ocean view with private bath not wanting to have to share a bath. Bed and linens were very comfortable but the bathroom and towels (some of which had stains that should have eliminated them from guest room rotation!) left a lot to be desired. Toilet was not clean! Shower and sink were very old and the shower floor creaked ominously while in it. There appeared to be only one woman cleaning up. The common areas got dirty after a days use and she could not keep up. Sticky tables and used napkins in the chair cushions were disconcerting. Covid messed everyone up so I will give them the chance to recover having missed and entire (short) season in 2020.

I had a second-floor room facing the bay for two nights and was shocked that the room was never cleaned, the sheets and towels never changed, etc. And the floor was dirty on my first night: I noticed some sort of crud or grit collecting on my feet as I walked around the room without shoes and socks on for a bit. And then there was the overpriced food in the restaurant: I paid an average of $43 per meal for one breakfast, one lunch, and one dinner. That's outrageous to me, a former resident of large city on the east coast where such prices are common, but easily avoided by savvy locals. And then there was the service: Heaven help you if you're alone, as I was. You'll probably be invisible to much of the staff. Want a second cup of coffee? Good luck with that. Some of the staff is good (attentive, friendly), but an equal number is bad (borderline rude). One night when I went to the front desk to report a ceiling leak in the staircase, the person working at a computer at the desk ignored me for several minutes until I finally had to speak in a loud voice. Instead of thanking me for reporting this problem, she merely said, "We know." Oh, and, did I mention that there's no phone and no TV and precious few electrical outlets in the rooms? Sure, everyone has a cell phone these days, you shouldn't be watching much TV anyway, and an ancient inn that appears to have never been remodeled or upgraded probably wouldn't have many outlets in its rooms, but still. All of that just added to the overall bad time. You want a nice inn where you're treated well? This ain't it.

My husband and I recently stayed two nights at the Chebeague Island Inn. This was our first time to the Portland area and to the islands in Casco Bay. I was very glad we chose to leave Portland and stay at Chebeague for a few days as you will get a better feel for the lifestyle (we are from Colorado). The Inn itself is beautiful and historic. There is no better hotel front porch as the seating and the views are amazing! I really enjoyed the seating area/fireplace/game room atmosphere next to the lobby where you check in as well as the dining areas. All well decorated and lovely. The rooms were comfortable but not big. There really isn't much in the rooms - bed/ chair and dresser. The dresser did not work very well but the bed was good. Bathroom was good as well. Part of staying here is also the dining and island experience. They do have bikes to ride - no charge, part of your stay. However. it is first come first serve, and most were taken early on Saturday morning the day we tried to ride. The island is easy to bike around and you will have a beautiful, mountain like atmosphere to ride in plus the ocean views. You can't beat that! We also stopped at the Slow Bell Cafe and had lunch - hamburgers - which were very good. We made a stop at the Niblic general store and picked up some bottled water and snacks. Again - just part of the Chebeague experience. We had dinner twice and breakfast once at the Inn and the food is amazing! Yes, it's pricey but no more than any other of the nicer restaurants in the Portland area and of course it's convenient staying at the Inn. We had a mussels appetizer that was out of this world good. The staff is great and always ready to assist. The Inn had a small hitch when we were there. They lost their water supply about 9 PM. They worked on the problem tirelessly and handed out bottled water to the guests. This fell on Father's Day Weekend and tons of folks were coming for brunch on Sunday and I was amazed that they were able to recover and washed dishes at 2 am when the water was back on so they were prepared. This really is a crew that works hard to keep things moving and on track. Finally, I have one small tip on pick up. We came over on the Casco Line from Portland. I did call and let them know which time slot we had and she explained someone would be there in a van to pick us up. I believe the Portland ferry dock was about a 3 mile walk to the Inn. We also let them know the day we left the time we needed to be back and they are very glad and prepared to drive you to the dock. Do be prepared - when we were there, the temps were in the mid to upper 70's, and the bedroom was quite toasty. They have a floor fan, but no AC and there wasn't much breeze when we stayed. Even with the warm room, I still would not have missed this experience - it is unique and magical. Thanks for the great memories!
