We have been going to the Inn 3 times a year for the past 15 years and can't wait to go back. The service is top notch and they make you feel like family. The views are amazing and the rooms are excellent. All this within walking distance to town.

WHEN WE WALKED IN THE DOOR THE FIRE PLACE DREW US IN IMMEDIATELY! We have been enjoying this romantic hide away for 11 years and it never gets old! Breakfast is still splendid and dinner in the restaurant was the best and fresh even in the winter months. What a place!

We have spent many of our Thanksgivings here and look forward to it every year. The location on the water is breathtaking. Short walk to the main part of town, restaurants. Situated on the waterfront walking path. Staff is very attentive. A quintessential Maine experience.
