Recently attended a family member's wedding at this Inn. The wedding was planned and date moved due to Covid 19, so the owner "Rick" had plenty of time to prepare the property as he had promised when he was paid. Upon arrival at the Inn, the grounds were a mess. Grass clippings, sticks, and a lawn that needed mowing was what we were presented. The front porch had empty flower pots, kayaks, and empty wine bottles. Family friends immediately started picking up sticks . The owner's son did come out at this point and helped for a short time. The owner was no where to be found to discuss the condition of the property. On the day of the wedding, he placed a small amount of mulch around a rock. We inquired about trash cans. Trash cans were found in between shrubs, but when WE got them, they were filled with shrub clippings, which WE disposed of. The next morning, he spent his time roping off the bar area as one family member in her wedding attire was raking excessive grass clippings at the alter. I guess he thought he was the quality control advisor as he was seen taking vodka shots. His dress was not wedding attire appropriate. (sweatpants and ballcap) When questions or requests were presented to him, he became obstinate, defensive, and down right rude. His mantra, "This isn't my first rodeo." I could go on and on. He made himself right at home with our food , booze, and sat himself down at a table. Brides beware. Harpswell is beautiful. Choose another venue.

Attended a good friends beautiful wedding. Location is beautiful and the inn was convenient. Our friends filled the suites and the bedrooms inside the inn as well. The owner... Rick. He’s a different story. He was continuously rude and seemed to always feel like he needed to be apart of the scene or just in the background of every point of the weekend. During the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception he wore sweatpants and a sweatshirt while walking around the crowd. Seems slightly unprofessional and inappropriate for a wedding. He found it necessary to interrupt the speeches, SIT AT A TABLE AND WATCH THE GUESTS DANCE DURING THE RECEPTION (in his sweatpants), he drank alcohol from the bar that was supplied and paid for by the bride and groom, and also attempted to walk away with bottles of alcohol at the end of the night. All in all - I DO NOT RECOMMEND If I could give it 0 stars I would.

We loved the Harpswell Inn! The owners were fabulous, food was great and the rooms were lovely! We stayed in Eagle's Nest and it was perfect for myself, my husband and our toddler, and it was definitely spacious enough for a larger family. (It had 1.5 baths and a full size kitchen!) The Inn's location is incredible; right on the water with beautiful sunset views. My toddler spent the entire time looking for boats (of which there were many due to lobster fishing). It was also close to some cute towns; we enjoyed exploring Brunswick and trying out some trendy dining options. We will definitely return!

I visited the Harpswell Inn during a mid-September weekend, arriving later in the evening than I would have liked, but was treated like a long-lost friend..the feeling, stepping inside after a very long drive (from Boston), after a long exhale, was "This is so nice!" Rick and Trish were not only welcoming but available over the course of the weekend for anything, directions, suggestions, etc. I stayed in the Longfellow Room on the second floor, very cozy, bookcase with quite the collection, private bathroom (even a robe, extremely rare in my hotel experiences!) The food - lobster in my case- was outstanding, prepared by the hosts and their kids (really nice, I'm sorry I forgot their names!).... The location of the Inn is at the base of a small peninsula jutting into the bay...the beauty of the close surroundings is satisfying in of itself...but, as Rick pointed out, the Harpswell Land Trust and the long peninsulas pointing south into the bay are breathtaking, with many hiking trails along the coast, as well as further up the peninsulas. I'm sorry to say I didn't take advantage of Brunswick, but to the credit of the Inn and the aforementioned surroundings, I'm fine with taking a rain check on that for my next stay!

My husband and I stayed at the inn for our 25th wedding anniversary with a group of dear friends. The location is “over the top” beautiful with a picturesque view of the bay. The main living area is cozy and comfy and the dining area roomy. The decor is tastefully done with beautiful wallpaper and antique furniture. It is like stepping back in time. We took a tour of the inn and I can honestly say that each room has it’s very own charm making it had to chose one over the other. The room we chose was lovely, spacious, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The host’s Trish and Rick are gracious and and personable and quite accommodating. It was a pleasure to meet them. Being here in the fall was truly amazing but I believe a stay at the inn in any season is worthwhile. The surrounding areas of Baileys And Orrs Island offer so much for the true nature lover - refreshingly beautiful as you breathe in the mid coastal air. My recommendation is simply “GO”. I know we will be back !!!
