This was probably the 6th or 7th trip to Monhegan and the Island Inn. The staff is returns year after year and are always welcoming and friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, although some are small. If you are looking for a resort atmosphere, don't even think about going to Monhegan! The island is simple, small, rustic, and absolutely magical. The dining room is very pleasant and serves a nice variety of meals, especially considering everything is imported from the mainland. The service is wonderful. This place is for introspection, working on art, reading, photography, bird watching, hiking and just general sitting and looking. The island has a lovely rhythm and we always manage to meet some interesting people. I almost hesitate to write a review because this place is so special I don't want to share! The Inn has neither AC or heat, so pack accordingly. Fluffy comforters keep you happy at night. It could be difficult for the mobility challenged as there are no elevators, you walk up the hill from the ferry dock, and trails are rough, but we've seen people rise to the challenge.
