Greg T wrote a review Dec 2022
Portland, Maine3 contributions1 helpful vote
First off, the food is absolutely spectacular and may be the best I've ever had in Maine- and I live in Portland. I would put it right next to some Michelin restaurants I've been to in both the US and Europe. It doesn't hurt to have jaw dropping views either- or if you happen to catch a good sunset, they're among the best I've seen on the east coast. Service is top notch. Lastly, the rooms are a great size and the fit and finish is outstanding. I've stayed in rooms 10 and 1- both of which feel refined and perfectly outfitted for such an inn. Highly recommended!

Property's Favorite Review
We had the most amazing stay at this beautiful inn this weekend. We were in room 9, which was very large with a jaw dropping view of the lake, as well as a private porch for star gazing. Had dinner there Saturday night and we were so impressed with the food and service. The Blair Hill Inn pulls it off perfectly. Beautiful setting, lovely inn and impeccable service that is warm, gracious, without being stuffy or pretentious. I would give it 10 stars if I could. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation here, and don’t miss dinner! Just outstanding!

Dallas, Texas10 contributions1 helpful vote
My husband and I have stayed at some of the top B&Bs and inns in the States and many in Europe and were looking forward to staying at the Blair Hill Inn again. It was beyond disappointing. I have waited to write the review in hopes my disappointment would fade. It has not. We stayed in Room 7 for the great view of the lake. The room definitely provides that. The view is breathtaking. Unfortunately---and the owner cannot be faulted for this---there is a lot of construction down the street and the inn is much closer to the street than the photos depict, so we fell asleep and woke every morning to loud trucks driving up and down the road. Not a relaxing situation, despite the lovely view. The most disappointing aspect of the Inn, however, is all the changes the new owner has made. The updates have replaced the genteel feel of the inn with what can only be described as "Hobby Lobby" style. In addition, she completely did away with a lovely sitting area to expand the restaurant seating. Now there is no place to sit to read a book or chat with others at the inn. There is only the bar area for seating. While the modern leather chairs are fine and we enjoyed some glasses of wine in the bar, there is an ugly, cheap painting above a fireplace that was not running, despite a very chilly evening. It is simply not the atmosphere one expects at a "fine inn." The owner is not friendly, and breakfasts were stunningly inferior. On our first day we were served a parfait that was literally two tablespoons of mush, along with a very, very, very small piece of french toast. That was all there was to it. The next day, the offering was fruit and shrimp and grits. That was all. We overheard others at nearby tables ordering toast and bacon; if we had not overheard, we would not have known it was an option. We sat next to a sweet couple in their late 70s, and they were sorely disappointed, too. I had to ask the waitress for a refresh of their coffee. We tipped both of our waitresses well because it is not their fault the new owner cares little for service. By the way, we never saw her at breakfast. We did see her a couple of times in her office with a large Great Dane, but she could not be bothered to greet us---not once. For those who appreciate excellence in service, this is not the place for you. We strongly recommend against choosing this inn.

Ann, I’m so sorry you were disappointed with your recent stay. A change of ownership can be difficult and I realize not everyone will agree with the changes I’ve made. We work hard to make each of our guests feel at home and I’m so sorry we didn’t achieve that for you and Keith. We appreciate the feedback and wish you all the best, Jenn

Courteous, professional, friendly. Attention given to every detail. Food was gourmet to say the least. The staff was helpful, respectful but fun. We have made another reservation already for next year.

This establishment keeps you/us, the patron, at the forefront at all times. I am disheartened to see any negative review of this esteemed inn and can only attribute that to main character syndrome. Jenn and her staff could not have been more accommodating, even in-light of some uncontrollable circumstances. Room 10 was the perfect space for our retreat, replete with views of the resplendent lake and leaves. Should you find yourself in the need for the highest of quality accommodations in the North Woods, find yourself at the Blair Hill Inn. Food, staff, beds, local connections- All top class. (Go see Scott for a private boat tour of Moosehead Lake, filled with local lore. Also, do a Moose Safari)

We had a wonderful weekend at this bed and breakfast. The location is beautiful couldn't ask for anything better. We just finish our 3-hour dinner. Which is way way too long for pretty just average food. The three waitresses that they had serving at the 5:30 dinner were so amazing they busted their butts. The food just took way too long that we ended up just spending a whole bunch of money on drinks. Two and a half hours later our main course came out by that time we just wanted to be done. $100 each for our meal plus five drinks each at 16.99 each, ouch.

Jody, I’m so sorry your experience at dinner wasn’t as exceptional as the remainder of your weekend with us. Our dinner experience is consistently 2 hours, as it was the evening you dined with us, but I understand if that was too long for you. I am pleased that you enjoyed our new fall signature cocktails, and very much appreciate you recognizing the hard work of our team. Thank you taking the time to share your feedback and we hope we have another opportunity to provide you with an exceptional experience in every aspect of your stay with us. Warm regards, Jenn

We were told that if we were going to eat anywhere at Moosehead Lake, we must try Blair Hill and were they ever right! The food and experience were one of our highlights from our trip! We so enjoyed sitting on the porch ahead of our dinner and having a drink. The view is just amazing and the property is pristine! The meal is such an amazing experience with all the courses a culinary delight and incredible treat! I just wish I had taken a picture of each course. We plan to return and hope to be able to stay at the property next time we come to the area since they were fully booked on our dates of travel.

Top notch restaurant that rivals Michelin-starred restaurants anywhere in the world, but with an exquisite setting in a gracious New England inn overlooking the sun setting over Moosehead Lake. Wine pairings by their wonderful sommelier elevated the evening. Truly an outstanding experience!

If you want to experience the beauty of northern woods Maine, but also have the sophistication of a Relais & Chateau hotel waiting for you at the end of the day, then the Blair Hill Inn is for you. My husband and I spend 4 wonderful nights at the Inn. Our room was just lovely with a sweeping view of Moosehead Lake. Breakfasts and dinners were OUTSTANDING. Kudos to Jenn Whitlow and her very capable team for a WONDERFUL stay. We are hoping to head back next summer.

It's not often you find a Relais & Chateau restaurant in the northern woods of Maine. But Blair Hill is just that and located a few minutes from downtown Greenville. Nestled up the hill overlooking the majestic Moosehead Lake, the restaurant offers an exceptional dining experience with breathtaking views of the lake, mountains and (if you're fortunate enough) sunsets. Their cocktail menu offers unexpected recipes (milk punch anyone?) that taste delicious and are beautifully presented. The multi-course menu is a balance of daily chef tastings and dishes that showcase local ingredients. They are all served by a professional and friendly waitstaff who is presided over by the Jenn, the new owner of Blair Hill Inn. Be sure to visit when you are in the area or not-- it's worth the drive!
