Out of the pages of a movie or a novel... we loved this dreamy hotel and it's fabulous location right across the street from the beach! We found this hotel on the fly using the TripAdvisor app on my iphone and literally booked it as we were driving up the coast. We were lucky to get a room here because...

My family and stayed here over the summer with my sister's family. My sister is a big fan of Maine and she wanted us all to spend time together at one of her favorite spots. It takes a little while to snake through the town and drive out to the hotel-- but the view is impressive. From the parking lot...

After leaving New Hampshire, this was a great stop over point on on way up the Maine coast. The hotel is stately and we had one of the two large balcony rooms so felt like we won the lottery! Large room, with walk in closet even and left the door open at night to hear the ocean. Beautiful sunset from...

My wife and I sent the weekend at the Colony Hotel to celebrate our anniversary. We chose this hotel because it is pet friend and was recommended by friends. We often stay at places that are pet friendly, but often find ourselves tucked in out-of-the-way rooms that feel us feel second rate. This is not the case at the Colony,...

The wedding reception started with cocktail hour on the veranda. A stunning and beautiful setting and the weather was perfect. The dinner in the ball room consisted of an exceptional clam chowder, salad, a surf and turf entree of a delicious filet mignon and lobster tail. A scrumptious dessert table of pies, the blueberry pie a winner. And for even...

Thanks to the staff at the hotel for taking such good care of us last week. We were so happy with our room at one of the cottages. Breakfast every day was very good. The remodeling of the bar was a welcome change, and everyone was very kind and helpful. Most important, there was a steady supply of treats for...

My wife and I visited The Colony Hotel in early September and despite many reviews about "paper thin" walls we were surprisingly pleased. The hotel is by no means a small B&B style New England inn however, despite its medium size, lives as the aforementioned. There are several different buildings, we were in the main building in a corner room....

We had a fantastic stay at the Colony Hotel. Our room was great and seemed to be freshly re-done. Great bathroom, the shower pressure was almost too strong (that's a good thing!) The staff were very friendly and accommodating, we asked for a couple more towels and got them fast and with a smile. Good location as well. We'd recommend...

I attended a 2d conference at this hotel, did not stay as a guest due to their pet friendly policy. As someone with allergies to some furry animals I was concerned. I was at the resort for 2 days of business and can't say enough about how beautiful it is, the gorgeous location, and friendly staff. I was greeted with...

We enjoyed our stay at the Colony Hotel. They are extremely dog friendly and all of the staff were very helpful. The grounds are very well kept and lovely for walking. Location is excellent and there is ample parking.
