Travellers' Choice
Frommer's Travel Guide said, "It's hard to convey the magnificence of the ocean views, maybe the best of any Inn's in Maine." The open sea, rocky cliffs and thick forest create an enchanting setting for the historic Newagen Seaside Inn, poised on the tip of Southport Island in the heart of Maine's famed Boothbay Harbor region. Make some memories at the newly restored, yet always historic, Newagen Seaside Inn, at the edge of the sea.

The Newagen has a lovely hotel with a beautiful location and an excellent pub. However our room was a huge disappointment. We had a 2nd floor room in the north wing of the original building. Our room was directly over the kitchen and we hear banging, food prep and loud voices until 1130pm and again at 630am. We were unable to sleep or relax hearing all this noise. If you stay here, get a room in the new wing which is a separate building. I wish I would have known this as it ruined what could have been a lively stay.

Thank you for the feedback and for alerting us to the issue. We spoke immediately to our new staff and made them aware that their movement in the dining room was being heard above them. I'm so sorry that noise ruined your vacation.

When we were finally ready to venture out on our first overnight adventure since the start of the pandemic, we knew we wanted to go to a place on the coast so we felt like we were away from home but not too far away, and wherever we went had to have a pool as our almost 5-year-old would be traveling with us. I found the Newagen Seaside Inn on my first search, and we are SO glad I did. The special they are running right now (July 2020) made paying for our trip so much less of a headache. On my first call to NSI, I spoke with Debi, who was kind, patient, and knowledgeable as I navigated making our reservation. Debi was equally as lovely on my couple of follow-up calls the day before we checked in. All staff we encountered during our stay were pleasant, friendly, and helpful. Check-in was a breeze thanks to Abby. Our room was easy to find, and we were provided a map of the property as well as menus for The Pub. The pamphlets in the lobby were relevant and current. Our room - Cozy Harbor suite - was delightful! It was spacious, inviting, and tastefully decorated. We were thankful for the counter space and refrigerator. The air conditioning system was quick, quiet, and cool. The bed was very comfortable, and I even liked the pillows better than what I have at home! The water was hot, and the shower had great water pressure. Both the bed and bath linens were soft, crisp white, and in excellent condition. The common spaces were well-appointed, inviting, and immaculate. The grounds were equally as impressive. We all made use of the pool both days of our stay and the Pine Room on Friday morning; both are great family spaces. Our son loved the candlepin bowling and throwing darts for the first time. We also enjoyed exploring the dock, but we decided to forego a row boat adventure on account of pea soup fog and sea farer inexperience. Because of the fog and our somewhat busy itinerary during our visit, we weren't able to check out the trails - but I'm certain they must also be lovely! The boxed breakfasts were hearty; they were more like breakfast plus a morning snack. We loved the Carrabassett coffee available all day in the lobby. Great, local coffee is always a perk. The food at The Pub was exquisite; I left a separate review for it. COVID-19 precautions were thorough and thoughtful. ALL staff wore masks in public areas, and guests were required to as well. Hand sanitizer was readily available for everyone to use. The lobby restroom was very clean. Our coastal getaway was exactly what we needed! Thank you, Newagen Seaside Inn. We can't wait to go back!

From our early check to our final goodbyes, this resort offered a beautiful respite from our busy life. The charm and beauty of Seahorse Cottage cannot be compared. There is plenty of outside space to walk and ponder , read a book, or just sit and stare at the ocean and breath the wonderful salt sea air. I had left a pair of earrings behind and the staff mailed them to me after my return home. Thank you! A special shout-out to Abby and Matt for their kind assistance.

I stayed for three nights in early June with my husband and 20 year old daughter. We had a room in the main inn. It was tiny with only two double beds but we made it work. The bathroom was also tiny but newly renovated. The bathroom could have used some type of hook on the wall or behind the bathroom door to hang bathing suits to dry. The decor in the room was nice but our upholstered chair actually had a piece of fabric cut out of it. I am not sure if the hotel was cutting out a spot or a guest did the damage. Also, there were several holes in the wall from some type of shelf that should have been filled in and painted over. That being said, the staff was really nice and the hostess at the restaurant was especially nice because she let us sit at a fairly private table in the restaurant all three nights. Breakfast was a bit disappointing. There were not a ton of selections and the muffins were not fresh but the type you get at a 7-11 eleven in a plastic bag. The lobby was nice and there was free coffee available most of the day that was delicious. The scenery and flowers were very nice but the pool chairs really need to be replaced. I would definitely recommend this inn because it was cozy and close to Bar Harbor.

Room Tip: I was in the main inn and unfortunately my room was over the restaurant so it was a bit noisy.

Thank you for the feedback. Sounds like guest damage with that chair....we will address it. The pool chairs are on our list for replacement. Renovations have been a bit delayed due to all the challenges of last season. I wanted to make it clear to anyone reading this that we are not close to Bar Harbor, but Boothbay Harbor.

Nice grounds, not much around it though. Rain kept us from using their bikes but they looked in good condition. Rooms clean, nautical and country mashup decor. Beds comfortable, good amenities in bathroom, coffee maker and a refrigerator. One of our room had adjoining door that allowed all sounds to pass. Good access to Boothbay. Breakfast was included and was good. Took away one star because one evening we tried to get some food at the restaurant and we’re told by Tiffany (very rudely) they could not accommodate anyone since two hours later they had a band. Fortunately, the GM was very helpful throughout our stay. Would stay there again
