The Spouter Inn was by far our most enjoyable B & B stay. While the amenities were all 5 star it was the hospitality of the hosts, Catherine and Paul that made the stay most memorable.

Wow! We were so delighted with our three-night stay at The Spouter Inn. We were away from the crowds in Camden yet only a very short distance drive down the coastline to visit Camden and Rockport. The owners of the inn, Paul and Catherine, are very gracious and made us feel right at home. The inn is kept immaculately clean, the furnishings lovely, the grounds well attended, the rooms nicely appointed with comfortable pillows and beds, PLUS outstanding breakfasts with lots of delicious choices including the time you want to eat. We met other nice traveling folks who expressed the same opinion as us -- We were glad we selected The Spouter Inn! We would return in a heartbeat.

The Spouter is a must!...Right on the water! My California idea of what the Maine Coast should be. Inn keepers make this beautiful "old" house a home! You feel welcome immediately. The food is outstanding and the amenities plentiful. Very helpful access to tour arrangements and dining facilities. We stayed in Inns over the three week vacation, and this was the best.

The perfect place to relax and take in all the beauty of the Maine coast. Centrally located and convenient to everything from Rockport, Camden to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The innkeepers attention to detail and knowledge of the area was like having a personal tour guide.

This family run business has really met our expectations. The whole Inn is spotless, very clean. Our room was large and very comfortable with good furniture and expectational king-size bed. Every morning the breakfast is made with care by Paul and the overall service is the way it should be: It is there when you need it, when you don't they do not push it. High recommended in a beautiful state to explore.

Great stay. Great location.

The house is very attractive and well kept. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful. The food is excellent with a wide range of choices. You get to order exactly what want each morning. There is a range of prices for the rooms. We were well satisfied staying in the smallest and least expensive room which had a great ocean view. There is a fair amount of traffic on Route 1 during the day, but it was not heavy at night. It was great to have a public beach only yards from the front door and good restaurants within walking distance. It's nicer staying in this little village than in crowded Camden.

What a hidden jewel! We were looking to stay in Camden for the weekend, but found no reasonably priced vacancies. Then we we found Lincolnville! Never heard of it before. The hosts at the Spouter Inn were very accomodating, and the whole place was spotless. My house should be so clean! With the beach right across street, and adjacent restaurants, we enjoyed the whole experience. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at 3 different B&B’s during our trip to Maine, all comparably priced & chosen on the strength of online reviews. The Spouter was the only one that did not live up to its advertising. The photograph on the Spouter’s homepage is misleading. It shows a house directly on the water. The inn is actually located on a busy local highway, set back quite a way from the ocean. The customer service was disappointing. When we arrived, we stood on the porch for several minutes, ringing the bell as the sign directed. Eventually, we had to open the door, walk in, and yell for assistance. We were given no way to contact the innkeepers if we needed anything or had any questions. Our room, the Crow’s Nest, was described on the website as “a unique 3rd-floor room with panoramic ocean & mountain views”. We were surprised to find a room with relatively small windows on three walls--one facing the highway/ocean, the other two facing the side and back yards. The walls of our room were very thin. From the third floor, we could plainly hear the conversations of people standing in the front yard. And the 2nd night of our stay we were woken up at 12:30 by a TV & people talking in the room below. Most disturbing was the lack of security. When we arrived, we weren’t given keys either to the house or to our room. We were informed that the side doors to the inn were always left unlocked. Because our room had no outside lock, when we went into town for the day, we had to leave all of our stuff, including computers, electronics, etc. in an unlocked room. We definitely did not feel comfortable or welcome here. And the price certainly did not match the accommodations. The B&B we stayed at before this was exactly the same price, and the rooms, food, and service were vastly superior. We’re a bit puzzled by all the glowing reviews on BedandBreakfast.com. We should have checked Trip Adviser, which has several reviews mentioning the problems we ran into.

This amazing B&B will exceed your expectations in many ways. From the individually prepared gourmet breakfast to the beautiful property, home and furnishings, to the excellent beachfront location to the gracious attitude of your hosts. You will want to come back every year! I challenge you to find a better place than the Spouter Inn.

A great place to stay. Crow's Nest is an awesome room. But be aware, the beach is a "Maine beach."

The Spouter Inn is the best of several dozen B&Bs I've used throughout the US and Europe. Paul and Catherine have been innkeepers far longer than any other innkeepers I've stayed with - and their experience and dedication to excellence is obvious in all aspects of the inn. This is the cleanest and best maintained inn I've visited. Superlatives, yes, but well earned!!! Recommend the inn provide mosquito repellent so the front porch can be best enjoyed on summer evenings for watching the moon rise out of the bay. I am a big eater and found the breakfasts to be very delicious and filling - the meat portions could have been more generous for us carnivores. Then again, I could have eaten my weight in Paul's house made breakfast sausages - they are not to be missed and the same holds true for Catherine's muffins!!!

We had a most enjoyable stay in July of 2011. Catherine and Paul, our hosts have created a beautiful, clean and comfortable get-a-way in a quaint coastal town. Breakfast quickly became a highlight of the day with a variety of made to order choices. A lovely front deck overlooking the waterfront and well maintained gardens is among the many quiet places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Next time, we'll plan to stay longer.
5 su giugno 26, 2011
This Inn has it all. Artful interior, good sized rooms, nice view of the ocean which is directly across the street. The breakfast menu is varied and the food quality is outstanding. Best of all is the courteous hosts who are very friendly and responsive. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting this region. Be sure to go sailing on one of the schooners. The host can set this up for you. The only word to describe how great this Inn is is Amazing!

Most B&B's treat you like a customer but Catherine treated me like a guest. If I needed directs or suggestions about my planned hikes, she was there. After I got drenched in a thunderstorm along a hike, she even put all my stuff into the dryer for me. There are four restaurants within walking distance so Lincolnville Beach is not "out of the way".

Exceptionally clean, well managed, well appointed establishment. Beautiful grounds.

The Spouter is an immaculate home filled with antiques that is literally a stone's throw from the ocean. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the front porch, delicious breakfasts and the advice on touring from our hosts. We highly recommend it.

We stayed for two nights, and we totally impressed with their attention to detail. Both the Inn keepers were very hospitable, and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They have one of the best breakfasts in the Camden area.

Our first trip to Maine. We were looking for a place on the coast with an ocean view, the ambiance of an historic inn, yet also near Camden and Acadia. Oh, and had to be a great value The Spouter exceeded our expectations in nearly every way. The decor is great, even better than the pictures. The entire Inn is immaculate. The breakfast was among the best I have ever had at a B&B. The view from the rockers on the front porch is worth the price of the room by itself. Shopping and dining is within walking distance. Very quiet for being right on Rt 1, but this may be because of the time of year.

We deliberately chose a B&B in one of the quieter, perhaps lesser known, coastal locations in Maine. At the Spouter Inn at Lincolnville Beach, ME, we found relaxation, tranquility, great food, and many nice people -- everything we had hoped for! The Spouter Inn has an elegant, yet informal ambience and decor, and superb breakfasts (each guest choses his/her own, each day!). Our hosts, Paul and Catherine, were friendly and helpful in providing all the information and driving direction we needed. There are several very good restaurants within walking distance from the Inn -- all with ocean views. In our experience, Maine, and northern New England generally, are rare locations where you can still find communities that are welcoming, provide a sense of comfort and safety, and doors that are still left unlocked. We had a great time and will be back soon! Natalie and Jim, Baden, Ontario, Canada

The warm and inviting rooms at your Inn, the marvelous woodworking throughout the house, the special vintage touches and nautical appointments in all your rooms are only heightened by the exquisite views of the boats on the bay. We had the fortunate time to spend a week with you and just fell in love with the Inn, with Maine and with each other again! We treated ourselves to an early 10 year anniversary celebration! Thank you so much for one of the “best ever” get-aways and what will surely become some of our fondest memories. Your Inn, the country breakfasts and the hospitality is second to none. Thank you, Grant and Stephanie! –HoHoKus, NJ

Staying at the Spouter Inn in ME was an absolute delight. The Inn is gorgeous, very clean with many antique, vintage and nautical appointments. The breakfasts are superb and amazing and the rooms are divine! Add to all of this the spectacular view of the Penobscot Bay and boats with subtle mountain and island sillouttes with the sound of sea birds flying in the morning mist...only the smell of the beautiful flowers that line the brick sidewalks can distract you from the all the great views! Definitely one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. 5 stars all the way!

Wonderful setting, fantastic innkeepers, great food, and so much to see and do in the area. My wife and I have stayed have many B&B's around the country and the world and this rates as one of our best experiences. Grant, Catherine, and Trish were fantastic. They prepared incredible breakfasts from a wide menu. Our lobster omelets were amazing! Never imagined having lobster three time a day but we did! When we had this sudden urge to learn how to sail Grant immediately hooked us up with a local sailing school that had us sailing the lake by ourselves in about 2 hours. The inn is spotless, very nautical and very Maine. Every evening we walked about a half block down, got some ice cream, and then came back to sit in the rockers on the porch looking out to the bay. The jar of cookies was always full and changing with different types of cookies. There was nothing more we could have asked for except to stay longer - a week was not nearly long enough. You cannot go wrong here. Lincolnville is very small (but good food!). Access to Belfast and Camden is minutes away. Acadia National Park is about 90 minutes away and well worth the beautiful drive. Thank you Grant and Catherine!! Sean

An absolutely beautiful inn with excellent location for viewing the beautiful Maine central coast. The family- husband wife and son-whom run the inn, breakfasts, rooms, service, are all superb. Hike, swim in the ocean (if you dare; it's cold!) or a nearby very comfortable temp. lake with gorgeous views, see charming Camden, and great town Rockland with restaurants, art galleries, and excellent Farnsworth museum featuring American artists esp. the Wyeths. Don't miss Port Clyde and the boat to pristine Monheagan Island. My recommendation- skip Portland-nothing there; instead enjoy the towns, villages, and coast of Maine's New England countryside. Acadia National Park is also about 1.5 hr. to the north. Just made our trip 08/2008. Good Luck.

My wife and I had the best stay at The Spouter Inn than we have had at any other B&B we have ever stayed in. We love going to B&Bs sometimes and we would tell anyone that is going to Maine to make sure you put The Spouter Inn on their trip. The Service was first rate and the rooms were better than some 4star hotels I have stayed in. The Breakfast is a made to order, yes made to order with over 20 breakfast meals to choose from. Very beautiful setting just off the coast line with great restrauants near by. I am in the travel business and have been to many countries and almost all 50 states and I would put The Spouter Inn at the top of my list for places to stay at while visiting Maine. Dont miss out on this fantastic Inn..Summer or Winter! We appreciate your hospitality Grant and his entire family. Beverly and Doug Hollandsworth, Monroe Ga.

It's location in the quite vilage of Lincolnville Beach was perfect....on the water with relaxing views and able to walk to gourmet dining while a short 3 mile drive takes you to the heart of Camden Village for shopping, sailing, additional dining, etc. I highly recommend the Spouter Inn.

My husband and I loved The Spouter Inn. We were most impressed with the friendly, knowledgeable innkeepers as well as their hospitality. The gorgeous colonial was immaculate. Everything we needed was right there. We also enjoyed the flexibility of the breakfasts - they were served anytime from 7:30 am to 9:30 am - and there were numerous choices! We were impressed with the innkeepers' friendliness and were very sad to leave. The East Coast of Maine is a treasure!!!
