“Wonderful service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

You are pampered here at the Inn. Sara is a wonderful Innkeeper with an attention to pampering: appetizers before dinner, sweets after dinner and all homemade! Dinners at the inn are better than the breakfast. Beds are a bit uncomfortable and the floors and stairs uneven but the hospitality is worth it. We got a granola/yogurt/banana bread/chocolate breakfast to go when we were leaving early for hiking and would miss breakfast. Nice touch. Inn is walking distance to arborvine restaurant. Great food but a bit pricey.

We had a great room and food. The Blue Hill Inn is grand - from the rooms to the service in the breakfast room. The room staff is invisible - our room was made up while we were at breakfast. The breakfast area is a grand restaurant for the evening meal.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the rear of the inn.

Enjoyed meeting the host/owners and several of the other guests over wine and hors d'oeuvres. Attractive historic inn. Only two caveats- rooms in front of inn had a lot of traffic noise- also we were surprised to be charged $8 per glass of wine after having been "invited" to partake.

My husband and I stayed at the Blue Hill Inn in Blue Hill, Maine for 5 nights and could not have been more pleased. From the gracious, helpful staff, to their meticulous attention to detail, the comfortable beds, and of course, the FOOD - it was a fantastic experience. We ate at the best restaurants in the Blue Hill area and were delighted to find, on our last night, when we ate at the Blue Hill Inn, htat it was by far the best. The breakfasts are to die for, and the dinner is nothing short of superb. Inventive and fresh cuisine, and a hospitable staff, with well appointed rooms and comfortable common areas make this a memorable stay in Blue Hill.

My wife and I spent a lovely weekend in Blue Hill, Maine at the Blue Hill Inn. The inn was charming, the inn keeper was personable and the other guests were friendly and interesting. Our room (#7) was on the small side but well appointed, air conditioned, quiet, and very clean. The dining roomand food were fabulous. The town of Blue Hill is very low key compared to other seaside towns in Maine like Ogunquit or Bar Harbor. Dinner at the Boatyard Bar and Grill was lots of fun. We brought our own kayaks and kayaked in the tranquill bay, out around the islands and the moored boats, and the seals. We also took a day trip down to Stonington, about 20 miles south, and kayaked out of the working harbor there to the many many islands just off shore. We also did a 20 mile bike ride out of Stonington, which was a little precarious, as the roads were curvy, hilly and had no shoulders. The side roads (some dirt) down to the various coves were much better, and much more scenic.

A lovely and well-maintained little inn, with a friendly, gracious and accommodating staff. The Blue Hill Inn is just big enough to feel like you're not staying in someone's house, and small enough to feel like you've found a little gem. I stayed in a sunny room with a pretty toile wallpaper and a vest pocket sized bathroom, but it was perfect.

Sarah, the innkeeper and owner is the consummate professional.. She handled our requests at the outset and helped us access many of the neat features of the area. She was conscientious in helping me deal with a seafood allergy and the food is wonderful. We highly recommend dining at the inn if you can. The meal was one of the highlights of our trip over two weeks. Sarah dealt with all our requests for area information and went above and beyond the call of duty in providing maps, information and suggestions. We felt like we had stayed with a close friend of the family. Breakfast is terrific too. This is a great alternative to the more commercial Bar Harbor area, yet close enough to access Acadia National Park and other attractions of the area.
