We have been staying at this Inn for several years. It is absolutely wonderful. Our hostess this year was Karen, and she was sure to take care of our every need and made us feel right at home. She prepared wonderful breakfasts, which we enjoyed in the dining room with beautiful ocean views. Reid State Park, one of the most beautiful beaches in Maine is minutes away. Our room was lovely, immaculate and cozy, also with a beautiful view of the ocean. We can’t wait to go back to our favorite part of the Maine coast and stay at our very favorite B&B.

If you are looking for a restorative stay, an ocean view from your room, and warm, personalized service, The Mooring is for you. Renee, the host makes you feel at home right away. Her incredible cooking and attention to detail is second to none. The Mooring stands out above others B & B 's as Renee customizes breakfasts: eggs to order, accommodates dietary restrictions such as gluten and dairy free with delicious offerings such as quiche with potato crust, savory corn muffins, blueberry banana muffins and more. The views are stunning, the place is intimate, and its prime location is less than a mile from Reid State Park. This stay impressed us so much that we plan to start a tradition of going to The Mooring that we hope will last for many years to come.

After staying with family on Five Islands for many years, we stayed at the Moorings for two nights. Renee welcomed us graciously and provided a tour of the house. We had brought some wine in cheese due to our late arrival, and we enjoyed it on the beautiful veranda with its VIEW. We slept like babies in the comfy pink room's bed, and kept the windows open even in the drizzle. Breakfast was amazing--home made crostini from peaches and plums, eggs to our liking, fruit, and excellent coffee. So many beautiful views of the cove from almost every room in the house. A restful and happy visit!

We were in Georgetown for a wedding, and The Mooring provided an easy access room for my 95 year old mother who uses a walker. The room was beautifully appointed (as were all the rooms) complete with fresh flowers from their gardens, and the private balcony offered her a peaceful respite for reading and a gorgeous view of the ocean and wedding colonnades. But, the piece de resistance, was the INCREDIBLE breakfasts created by Renee, our Innkeeper, and her warmth and kindness to us as guests. We ate breakfast every day on the large deck porch (of course, ocean side) with socially distanced tables. I cannot say enough about this beautiful B&B, and the hospitality. And the breakfast. Did I mention the breakfast?! Wow!

We came back to The Mooring again for several days to celebrate our anniversary. We've enjoyed this B&B several times in recent years, and this visit didn't disappoint. Sadly, the owner/innkeeper Penny wasn't able to be there this year, but a friend of hers (Renee) ably filled in for her. Breakfasts were fantastic, generally prepared to your specific order. The rooms were clean and lovingly cared for, as always, but with with the understanding that no one would come into your room again until you checked out. We were extremely pleased, as always.

My daughter and her fiancé booked The Mooring for their October 2019 wedding. It was absolutely amazing. Penny was able to meet with me and my husband a year in advance since our daughter now lives in California. We did a FaceTime call while we visited the property on the weekend they would pick a year hence. It looked beautiful with the ocean views, the gazebo, and the tent area ready for the event. Going through the process, Penny worked with the bride and groom to plan the wedding and the rehearsal dinner. Fast forward to the wedding weekend. Penny's crew is extraordinary. They did everything we asked, and did with a smile and encouragement. They executed the entire plan without missing a step. They even allowed the bridal party to gather after the event to talk and laugh which was wonderful since all had come from away (as far away as Alaska!) Penny even put an additional bed into one of the rooms to accommodate an additional bridesmaid. Our groom is a mixologist, and the wonderful thing about this venue is that you bring your own bar. We had a full bar with three signature drinks devised by the groom. This option saved the couple (and other weddings) thousands of dollars depending on what you decide to serve. The drinks that our groom came up with were happily made by the bartenders hired by Penny and our guests were thrilled. We had about 100 guests with a buffet dinner that included lobster rolls. Everything was excellent and well presented. The grounds are gorgeous, the venue is wonderful., the staff is exceptional, and everyone from Maine to California, exclaimed about how beautiful it was.

Of the 5 inns our family (requiring 3 rooms) stayed in during our week in Maine, this was by far our favorite! A beautifully restored family home with additions to enhance it as a b&b, gorgeous design and decor, fabulous view and grounds, amazing amenities, delicious breakfast, but it was the quiet, peaceful elegance of the place that made it a place one, we'd wished we'd have stayed longer, and two, we'd love to return to. Delightful Penny made us feel so welcomed, and seemed to love sharing her wonderous place. And, her collection of functional Georgetown pottery was beautiful. It is an easy drive into Bath, and to Reid State Park. Thank you, Penny, for sharing your little piece of heaven.

The Mooring is an exceptional bed and breakfast. Our room was clean, cozy, and comfortable. Each day our breakfast was hearty and delicious. We were able to watch the sunrise and sunset each day from the large deck which faces the ocean and from our room. This is such a calm and peaceful place that it makes it hard to leave. Penny is kind, generous and always helpful with suggestions of things to do and where to dine. We plan on returning in the years to come. This has been one of our go to places in Maine over the past several years. We love you Penny! Carolyn and Luis Windsor, Ct

Three generations gathered at The Mooring for a party. We had a chance to catch up and share family history in the most relaxing and beautiful setting. The rooms were great and the breakfasts were fantastic. Our favorite part was sitting around the sun room laughing and telling stories and laughing some more. Penny was wonderful. She made us feel so at home. We are all still talking about the best reunion ever!

Located right next to Reid State Park, this is an amazing little Bed and Breakfast. My wife and I got married here and have since gone back to stay as an anniversary get away. Penny is fantastic, so easy to get along with and she really makes you feel welcome and at home. Can't wait to go back again!
