We had not made any reservations yet. A hotel owner in the area recommended the Surry Inn to us. The setting is beautiful, the people are friendly. One feels truly welcome in the Surry Inn. The room we stayed in was ok. It was clean and neat. The dinner was a wonderful change of pace. Scallops in almond crust with... More

The Surry Inn is run by a very nice woman and her hubby but they need to reinvest some money into the place. The reputation for food is well earned and wonderful. The room reputation is also right on the money...sad. If they put 30 K in the place and fixed the windows and doors it would show some respect... More

The Surry Inn has stayed in business for 30 years when many other inns have come and gone because we provide delicious food, comfortable lodging in an 1830s historic farmhouse, and an unbeatable view at very affordable prices. We have a tremendous amount of repeat business because we are friendly, the food is delicious and we spend a great deal... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and wanted to get away from it all. My wife has been enchanted by old New England farmhouses and Inns for years and that is what we were looking for. The Surry Inn was all that and then some. Old world charm and get away, no phone, no television and... More

This really was the worst place I have ever spent the night! My husband and I were brought up to the room. The bedroom door would not close or lock. The room was musty and moldy smelling. The bathroom had bugs in the corner behind the toilet. No hot water in the shower or sink. The breakfast in the morning... More

It was a surprise to read this review as these guests were among those who arrived in Downeast Maine in early August without advance reservations and might have actually had to sleep in their car except that we had a room remaining for the night. They were referred to us by one of the many hotels in Ellsworth that was... More

The pictures on the web looked good and the location looked nice, but when we got there and saw the inn and looked at the room they had for us, I said I'd rather sleep outside or in my car. The handrail to the second floor was broken and was a sign of the state of disrepair that the entire... More

My wife and I have been "regulars" at this inn's restaurant for over 10 years. The chef owner, Peter and his wife, Anneliese, have created a warm, friendly, attractive dining experience that we consider tops in every way. The dining room is exemplary of a cozy New England inn. The cuisine is outstanding and the service prompt and accommodating. Do... More

We had a wonderful stay here! The inn is admittedly run-down and the rooms are basic to say the least. But we felt that the owner, Annalise, more than made up for it with her warm hospitality. We stayed for five nights and felt very looked after. Annalise was glad to provide us with wine or tea at the end... More

“No rooms are good, bathrooms with no window or fan for ventilation, mildew smells, scalding dripping hot water that you cannot adjust, to ONE plug behind the bed so if you want to dry your hair you move the bed and then unplug a lamp. There is much more I could write but now I am going to forget about my horrific time there, and thankfully I was rescued by a wonderful local who gave me their summer home to stay in..”
