My family and I stayed for two nights before going to Rockland for a windjammer cruise and we loved it. I stayed with my husband and two children in the Vestry while my husband's parents stayed in the main building. My children LOVED the Vestry room with a twin bed for each of them, and claimed that the beds were... More

Thanks for writing! It was such a joy to host you and your family! We were so glad you were able to find some quiet time and hang out in the living room and that you enjoyed dinner both nights of your stay. We hope to see you again, sooner than later. More

I was very disappointed in this inn. No wifi, Spartan room like a cheap motel except for price, very little help with local attractions, not warm and welcoming for inn of supposedly this calibre, and did not replace damp towels. We stayed in inns in Portland and Bar Harbor that were less expensive and of much higher calibre, This could... More

Thank you for writing. It's upsetting to hear of your disappointment. We do have wi-fi here at the Inn and make a point to help all of our guests become familiar with the local area. We replace towels that are left on the floor or are requested to be changed, as we are eco-friendly and try not to use more... More

I had a great French Immersion weekend at the Craignair. Joanne was a gracious and attentive host. All meals were top rate and the selected wines were flavorful and well-paired with the meals. The coastal location proved gorgeous and relaxing. I look forward to bringing my family to stay here. The rates were more than reasonable. Cell service for me... More

I was lucky enough to attend a French immersion weekend here recently and it was an excellent experience in every way.

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Craignair for our 4th anniversary. We had gotten a great Groupon rate, and were excited to spend our vacation on the ocean. The inn is very unassuming when you drive up to it, tucked several miles back at the end of a residential road. Inside you see a lot of its... More

My wife and I were looking for something simple in order to get away for the week. We live relatively close by but would imagine that coming from the nearest airport would be comparable. We were in need of someplace where we could be comfortable doing nothing at all but had the option for day trips if needed. The Inn... More

Our room was very clean and the bed was amazingly comfortable. I have read a few other reviews and frankly, I can't see why anyone would have anything negative to say.
