Whitetail Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Lincoln
Reviewed December 12, 2013

I was very pleased with this place. Glenn, the owner has done a very nice job transforming this motel. Our room had 2 queen beds, flat screen TV, refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom was small but functional. Continental breakfast in the morning was a pleasant surprise. If you are staying in LIncoln, this is a great option.

So happy, that I was referred here back in the spring. Now just stayed for the second time and my experience was wonderful again. It is very obvious that service is the Top priority at the Whitetail Inn! The staff is very friendly and extremely accomodating. The Inn was recently renovated and is in superb condition!

This inn is still a work in progress, I believe, and we really were surprised at the ratings given in the past. We stayed in a room like a 50's motel and it was spacious, clean, and had a king bed that was very comfortable. Good! However, there was a large space for an overstuffed chair but there were no chairs in the room. The bed skirt was wrinkled like it was just taken out of the package as were the very cheap curtains. The inexpensive soap dish kept falling out of the shower stall and the outdated notebook with amenities in the area had the appearance and quality of a 3rd grader's project. Breakfast was offered in the main house in an unfinished room, with donuts that were still in the grocery store packaging and sugary cereal boxes for children. Packaged oatmeal was available and we did appreciate the yogurt, bananas, and coffee. An adjoining sitting room was pleasant. The road is busy so be prepared for truck traffic noise in the morning. This inn needs more tender loving care with upgrades and can only get better.

We're sorry to hear that your stay did not live up to your expectations. At just over a year old we're still working to renovate and make your stay very enjoyable while maintaining a very reasonable cost. Unfortunately, to keep costs low, we can't provide every 5-star amenity we would like (though we try). We will certainly look over the feedback from your review and add some things to our to-do list to make your stay even better next time! We hope to see you again soon.

The Whitetail Inn was a delight and excellent value, with friendly attentive owner and staff. The included breakfast buffet was ample. If we ever visit the area again, we will choose to stay here, though for us it was only an overnight stop in transit between the south of Maine and Fredericton in Canada.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Whitetail Inn. Glen, the owner, is attentive and really aims to please. The inn is a converted historic home on one of the main streets in the town of Lincoln, Maine. The atmosphere in the common spaces is warm and relaxing. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and up too date. We highly recommend the Whitetail Inn.

I looked at the room pictures on-line before booking and picked a lovely-looking king room. When I got there and was told it was the last door down on the outside, I thought there was some mistake. This part of the inn was like a 50s motel tacked on to the beautiful historic house. When I unlocked the door and looked in, though, it was exactly as pictured on-line! The decor was fresh and tasteful, the bed linens were better than at many big chain hotels, the bed was super comfy, and there were lots of extras - fridge, microwave, iron and ironing board, blow dryer. The owners have clearly done a lot of renovating and left a book in the room for visitor comments and suggestions. I read what was there and noticed that many of the suggestions had already been done - these folks want to please the guests. I suggested a covering for the clouded glass windows in the door but that's probably been taken care of by now!
My only issue was with the breakfast set-up in the main house - it was pretty congested and, despite having nice coffee, the selection was not great. There were packaged donuts and sweet cereals. There was yogurt but only sweet little Yoplaits. Some whole grain cereals or breads for toasting, Greek yogurt, and more fruit would appeal to many people. Otherwise, the setting was lovely and the price was great!

We had a lovely stay at the Whitetail Inn! Glen was warm and welcoming after our hikes at Baxter State Park. Lincoln is not too far from the park, and such a picturesque town. The service was wonderful; the room was beautiful and clean. The bed, pillows, and soft towels nice..and great to have the mini fridge, TV, and breakfast in the morning! You know you've had a nice stay, when it feels like you're waving goodbye to family!
