The Kilby Inn in Eastport, ME was the best B and B on our trip. The Inn was clean and beds comfortable. We loved the generous breakfast and the interesting decor. Greg was a great host. It is definitely worth the trip! Barbara and David, Paris, IL

The Kilby House was recommended to us by some guests who were staying at OUR inn on Martha's Vineyard Island and we now know why. Greg was the consumate host, the Kilby House was wonderfully charming, impeccably clean, thoroughly comfortable, and the breakfast Greg prepared was divine. For the money we paid (under $100) it would be hard to imagine a better value in Eastport. We were charmed by the town, and Greg's recommendations as to where to go, what to see and do, and where to eat were perfect. The Pickled Herring restaurant was particularly good. We can't wait to go back to Eastport and when we do we WILL stay with Greg at the Kilby House.

My husband and I stayed at the Kilby House this past month and we definitely agree with the posting below from the people from Dallas. It was a treat, even though we experienced poor weather during our time in Eastport. We were housed in the front master bedroom , which was small but comfortable and had some antique furniture. Our private bathroom was compact but adequate.

Greg, the gracious owner, provided us with some delicious and elegantly served breakfasts. As an added treat he played a "mini" concert on his pipe organ in the living room.

We would not hesitate to return to the Inn and recommend it to those visiting the area.

We recently spent a week in Eastport to escape the Dallas heat. On the recommendation of a local friend we stayed at Kilby House.

The house itself and our room were both beautiful, filled with antiques and period art. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom large and immaculate. The house is located on Water Street and overlooks the bay. Our room had plenty of windows and we kept those that were screened open for the duration of our visit as the weather was great and we enjoy a cool breeze - not available in Dallas. Probably we could have kept all of them open as there weren't any flying pests in Eastport but I'm a little phobic about bugs.

The host, Greg, was one of the very few people we met who was actually native. I think he may have been a retired teacher as he was extremely knowledgeable about the area and its history. He suggested several activities for us to enjoy during our visit, both locally and in Canada, all of which we enjoyed. The breakfasts he prepared were always accompanied by home baked muffins using the local fruits (blueberries or cranberries) and the portions enormous.

Finally, though there are several B&B's in the area, any time we mentioned to a Mainer we were staying at a B&B in Eastport, every one of them responded with "Kilby House?"

Room Tip: Book well in advance

This Bed and Breakfast and town was a real highlight of our recent road trip. Greg was a terrific host, most accomodationg--the house is very Victorian in style, without being stuffy. Best breakfasts of our entire trip.
Eastport is a fascinating town next to Canda, and a great cross section of people seem to settle here, making shopping and schooner rides even more interesting..

A thoroughly enjoyable stay thanks to very nice accommodations, excellent breakfast, and wonderful innkeeper Greg. He was welcoming, pleasant, and very informative about Eastport, and most of Downeast Maine as he is a native of the state. Location was perfect and we lucked out with diverse, pleasant, and fascinating fellow guests at breakfast. At the price is truly a great value. Only minor drawback was that the room and bathroom were quite small, but this may just have been our room.
