Anyone who claims New Englanders are cold should stay at the Newkirk Inn in Wiscasset. From the moment he greets you at the door with his sidekick, Gunther, the daschund, the innkeeper, Chris, makes you feel as though you are the most interesting guest he has ever had. Chris is a wealth of knowledge about Wiscasset and the surrounding area.... More

I wish this rating had ten stars, because that is what the Newkirk Inn deserves. Chris and Cheryl are lovely people, and their dachshund Gunther is an exuberant host barking you on board. I had the Dresden Room which is a charming apartment on the third floor, but all the rooms are clean and of the highest quality. Chris is... More

The Dresden Room is like a little apartment and our guests that are traveling alone, on business or have a studio apartment (at home) really enjoy that space. We are always happy to help guests find the right part of our small inn to call home. Thanks for the wonderful review! More

Stayed here for one night on our way up the Maine coast towards Bar Harbor. The Newkirk Inn was just the place. Chris was so friendly and welcoming.

We stayed at the Newkirk Inn for three nights in September this year and hope to return next year. We had a very pleasant stay in this charming inn run by charming hosts and the short walk into Wiscasset made it very convenient. Chris was very helpful with his local knowledge.

We really enjoyed our stay at Newkirk Inn. The room was very comfortable, clean and quirky, and most of all cool in the heatwave.

My partner and I were on a bike trip across the Maine Coast when we got caught in some rain storms!

We have stayed, literally, in dozens of B&B's throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. They are all different, but we really enjoy the B&B experience vs. a hotel.

We showed up late at night and it was clear we were keeping Chris up but he was friendly, did not rush us, and welcomed us into his home.
