Beautiful property in stunning location

5 on November 23, 2014

Really warm welcome and excellent service all round. Great room in the historic main house (103) with super comfortable bed and spacious well equipped bathroom. Breakfast is a buffet of good quality hot and cold food and there is plenty to choose from, including freshly baked breads. Hot drinks and cookies are available later in the day. We had a good meal at the onsite restaurant where the staff were friendly and helpful. Lobster roll was delicious and local beer excellent! Couldn't have a more picturesque location. Highly recommended.

The Dockside was a beautiful intimate property, with gracious hosts and in a lovely setting. You could tell the owners really wanted us to have a wonderful stay. We celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary and can't wait to return again!

Great place to stay!

Loved everything about Dockside! We were greeted warmly! The Drunken Lobster Saute is the best dinner ever! Top that with great wine, great service and Crème Brulee. The rooms are charming, beds comfortable, a peaceful night sleep. The Baked French Toast was a wonderful way to start the day. We will be back!!

The view was spectacular! During our 11 day stay in Maine, we stayed at five very different accommodations. Dockside was our favorite accommodations and we would definitely stay there again. The food was delicious and proprietor was very personable.

We MUST go back!!

It was hard for us to leave this amazing place. Our stay there was wonderful and I would highly recommend the Dockside Guest Quarters to anyone venturing that way. The breakfast was outstanding and the room was awesome. We stayed in room 14 and although the bathroom was a little small the view was so great. I can't praise the Dockside enough.

Signature Dish

Roasted Duckling with orange sauce
Not a meal you normally prepare at home because of the time it takes. The time we take make it worth it!! Roasted twice to remove the grease normally associated with duck. A cranberry stuffing with crisp skin gives the duck wonderful flavor.
