My wife and I had a great time at this inn. We enjoyed the surroundings and old building. The room was very clean and comfortable. Restaurant is okay... I had seafood pasta. The pasta was amazing; the quantity of seafood in the dish was not. For the $ I expected more. But that aside we loved the inn and would... More

The hosts made us feel very comfortable about traveling with pets. The location was absolutely gorgeous. Our hosts were nice, maybe a little tense. The rooms were spotless and spacious. On the downside, the breakfast was basically the same every day and neither of us liked it. For that much money per night, a varied meal would have been appropriate.... More

Thank you for your review and we are so glad we were able to accommodate you and your pups for 5 nights recently. Dogs are welcome in our Annex building, and we are happy you found the room spacious, clean and comfortable.

This was my very first experience at staying at a bed and breakfast and I must say the experience was amazing! I expected to be uncomfortable with a shared bathroom but it was always readily available and spotless. We were only able to make it to one breakfast and we were so sad we didn't have it the others days-it... More

Our wedding was picture perfect, thanks to Joanne, Michael and Simon at the Craignair. Throughout the planning, by email and in person, Joanne supported and counseled us. Our ceremony was on the lawn facing the water, and the entire event was everything we could have wanted. The food was spectacular, the dining room was beautiful, and the service was impeccable....

My husband and I had a room with two twins and a shared bathroom down the hall. The view from the room could not have been any better and we were comfortable. It was like staying in a good friend's cottage, and the hosts were welcoming, helpful, and very pleasant. Breakfast was excellent, filling, and again, like a good friend... More

This place is gorgeous and the owners are so sweet, accommodating, and all-around darling. The area around the hotel is beyond beautiful, even (and especially, for me) when it gets misty in the evenings. The decor is interesting and pretty, and it's perfectly matched with the views from each room (of course we peeked into the open rooms, we're only... More

The Craignair Inn is a hidden gem! The innkeepers Michael and Joanne were so exceedingly nice and caring and willing to help with anything my boyfriend and I needed. The room we stayed in had a terrific view of the waterfront and when the sun set, we couldn't take enough pictures. It was a perfect room for two; bathroom and... 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
