A bit out of the way - but that was our purpose. The owners / inn keepers make you feel quite welcome. We reserved late and on July 4th time, so had a room in the second building across the lot from the mail building, but it was very clean and quiet. The breakfasts (included), and dinners (separate) were outstanding....

My husband and I booked a night at the Inn for this coming September. We really preferred to stay at a place with an on-site restaurant. There were some changes to the summer schedule at Craignair and they so happened to be off the night we were planning our stay. (We get it, everyone deserves a night off. :) )...

Hi, It's so kind you took the time to write this! We really would've like to have the restaurant open 7 evenings a week during the high summer season but it just wasn't in the cards this year. I'm sorry you couldn't stay with us this year but we look forward to your future stay!

Michael and Joanne, the proprietors of this lovely inn, are funny, smart, and so very welcoming. Their dog, Mimi, a small catlike canine who doesn't bark at all, was a huge bonus. (She's hypoallergenic, a Jack Russell/poodle cross, about 10 pounds of love.)The rooms are plain, but comfortable, clean, inviting, and nicely turned out. The food was excellent--we had the...

Thank you for staying with us this past weekend. It's almost shameful we had to warm up with a fire in the living room when we're nearly into June, but it did feel nice!! Such is Maine!

We spent one night just to get away from home and relax. We hadn't been there in some time, but it was as relaxing and beautiful as ever. The hosts were perfect -- warm, friendly and not obtrusive. Dog was a hit with my wife -- well, and me too, actually. We also had dinner, and the meal was better...

Thank you for joining us recently! MiMi, our resident jack-a-poo does her best to make everyone feel welcome! We're so glad you felt at home and enjoyed your dinner! The weekend you stayed was our opening weekend for the season and we're thrilled to have our chef back with us this year. Thanks again!

The type of experience that I want when I travel should transport me from the ordinary to the magical. I want to feel something special ... almost "other worldly." The Craignair Inn offers this experience as it's located in a very tiny sleepy coastal Maine village in a spectacular setting with ocean, island, native flora and fauna. It's close to...

My group came to the Craignair inn to hold a daylong training for 30+ people. I'll admit at first we were looking at the Samoset as a location but due to a full date up there we settled on the Craignair as our backup plan. To say that I'm glad we did would be the understatement of the decade. The...

Winters in Maine are reputed to be long and dark. For those who care to look around, there are actually lots of things to do and places to go during the colder months.
