Inside this place was beautiful. Everything was very nice. From the room to the food. Would definitely go again. It's not over appealing exterior But whoever did the inside was excellent It's in the heart of town in the middle of everything. Not very forgiving if u are handicapped. A lot of stairs

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This could very well be the most perfect hotel in all my travels...and pet-friendly. Even with pets and babies staying, it held the most calm and relaxing atmosphere. The hotel reception assistant, Mark, was so helpful, accommodating, and kind. He is the perfect representation of what I had expected the people in Maine to be. The rooms are immaculate and... More

I stayed here for 2 nights after disembarking from the Stephen Taber (Windjammer cruise) as part of a package deal. The staff easily accommodated my early check-in (around 11 am) after I got off the boat. The hotel common spaces and rooms are beautifully renovated in a tasteful nautical theme. Room 2 had a king bed + unexpected daybed, and... More

The Lindsey is a gem of a boutique hotel. Loved our one-night stay here and wished we were staying longer. The hotel has recently been fully remodeled but retains its historical nautical theme. Beautifully decorated rooms and common areas. An old bank vault with a penny floor serves as a beer/wine cellar. A lounge area with comfortable seating includes old... More

Thank you so much for your very kind review, gridley. The penny floor in the old vault was actually carefully crafted by our hotel manager, Marc. It is without a doubt a one-of-a-kind conversation piece. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. More

Large beautiful rooms at a good price. Walking distance to excellent bayfront shopping and restaurants. Modern nautical feel without being overdone. King size beds with silky soft linens and fluffy pillows. Great place to relax after a day's sailing

This hotel/inn/B&B is unlike any other place I have stayed. It’s a big house with actual metal room keys—not key cards. There are common areas like the living room and the patio. The living room has an old turn table and vinyl albums of classic music like the Beatles and Frank Sinatra. Off the living room is a library with... More
