In all my travels what stands out to me is how friendly the place is and the river inn was top tier. When I checked in I was greeted by a young man who was able to get me into a superb room which he personally recommended. The room was spotless and smelled fresh, the view out the back slider was breathtaking in the morning. I was sure to come back to the office the next morning to tell them how much I enjoyed my stay. I hope to come back again and I am sure the room and hospitality will be top notch once again! Housekeepers, desk crew, management five star

Very clean with all rooms facing the Machias river. The staff was extremely helpful and the Inn was spotless. Great access to the Downeast Sunrise Trail directly across the street. They share their parking with Helen's Restaurant (best blueberry pie in the USA). I strongly recommend you stay here!

The room was beautiful and super comfortable, nice furniture and everything was clean, I loved the view of the river, I also loved the thick black curtain, keeps the room perfectly dark if you want to sleep in or take a nap during the day.

Stayed in the new section.Nice room with plenty of space for my daughter and I. Beds were very comfortable, nice table and recliner too! Double doors with deck overlooking the Machias River. Restaurants and Thirsty Moose within walking distance. Sunrise Trail across the road which connects to Machias River Perserve. Beautiful area!
