#1 of 4 B&Bs / Inns in Stonington
Certificate of Excellence
OPEN YEAR ROUND Known for its unique charm and spectacular view of the Penobscot Bay islands, the Inn on the Harbor on Deer Isle offers a perfect romantic waterfront retreat. Built in the 1880s and perched right on the edge of picturesque Stonington Harbor, this bed and breakfast captures the very essence of Maine's Downeast island life. Ten of the thirteen individually decorated guestrooms face the sea and enjoy gorgeous views of Isle au Haut, the Windjammers and the island's fishing fleet. Guests can relax on the spacious flower-covered deck extending out into the harbor and enjoy the tide rising and falling beneath the Inn. They can fall asleep to the sound of nearby Mark Island Light's foghorn and wake up to the lobstermen heading out to sea. Several of our rooms have wood burning fireplaces and/or private decks. Our accommodations are relaxed and comfortable, all with private baths and sitting areas. The coastal atmosphere, with fresh salt air and brilliant sunny skies, encourages many of our guests to simply put their feet up and relax while watching Stonington's bustling waterfront. This is Maine's Downeast island life at its best.

Inn on the Harbor has many options for accommodations, all viewable online for booking. I had booked J&E Riggin for one night and it was perfect for me. This 2nd floor room, which looks out on Stonington (as opposed to the harbor), was large, comfortable, and well laid out with a small sitting area. The Inn itself has a large deck to the rear that is on the water of the bay with plenty of seating (some of the rooms with harbor views have private sitting areas). Given the weather (drizzly), I didn’t avail myself, but it seemed quite nice. Breakfast is included. Alas, I wasn’t very hungry and so just had a waffle and coffee, but the options were all mouth-watering (next time!). Dana, the owner and innkeeper, was a perfect hostess and I really enjoyed talking with her at breakfast. Also, her recommendation for dinner was spot on! (Acadia House Provisions…just two doors down.) Loved it so much that I’m going back in October of 2020…this time for 3 nights! Highly recommended!

My wife and I just returned from the best experience we ever had at B&B. Dana and her staff were the best ever in every detail. The breakfasts were amazing. I could have sat there all day just to try to eat all the amazing things they had prepared. The views from the rooms were great. We sat for hours just watching the lobster men do their work. It was very interesting. We bought some lobsters from the local dock and Dana took them and boiled them up for us. I couldn’t believe she would do that. What a great experience. Don’t miss Inn on the Harbor. It’s worth a trip from anywhere.

Can't beat the location. Great views. Our room was excellent. The value is terrific. Dana is a fantastic innkeeper, with really good advice for what to see and where to dine. The breakfasts at the inn are outstanding as well. Stonington is a charming town that is definitely worth visiting

We just stayed at the Inn for one night and the bed and room were very comfortable and the view of the harbor was amazing with perfect views of the residence loon in the harbor. We look forward to returning.

Stayed one night before a trip to Isle au Haut. Excellent location, clean, spacious room with deck and wonderful views of the harbor. Full kitchen allowed us to prepare fresh lobsters from the nearby co-op which we enjoyed on the deck at dusk. Excellent breakfast and friendly, helpful staff. Look forward to a return visit.
