Trip to my son's graduation in December

4.8 on December 29, 2015

Great room and excellent breakfast and dinner in the dining room/restaurant!! Beautiful Inn and very historical! The only thing I would want is a self-service area for off hours that includes a Keurig, small microwave, with some coffee, tea, and cocoa options as this is not available when the dining room is closed. However, otherwise, excellent service, clean and beautiful room, and very pleasant stay!

Charming Location

We stayed here in December while attending winter graduation at the Maine Maritime Academy. Location could not have been more convenient. There was a surprisingly extensive breakfast menu despite the small number of guests at this time of year. Daily omelet selections and pancakes were both wonderful. The room was attractively decorated and spacious, with a lovely view over the water. All the staff were welcoming and pleasant. The off-season room rates were extremely reasonable.

Mid Coast Get-Away

4.8 on November 03, 2015

Very Comfortable Large late 19th Century Inn with plenty of elbow room, excellent views and easy access to hiking and harbor activities. Highly recommended for people looking for a superb comfortable get away in a Coastal town, miles away from traffic, congestion, neon, or any other widely known franchised commercial establishment. This place is an original, and cannot be duplicated.

Quiet Mid-Coast Living with Panoramic views

5 on October 24, 2015

Superb retreat for comfortable dining close to hiking, biking and sailing activities. Convenient access from more congested areas, yet off the beaten path traveled by tourists. The Manor could be an excellent focal point for a conference, or a staging area for crew swaps bound for offshore adventures. Highly recommended coastal retreat.

A Stay in Castine, ME

We enjoyed a wonderful stay on a gorgeous weekend. Accommodations were terrific and the in house breakfast and dinner could be rated 5 star.

A comfy home away from home

5 on September 04, 2015

We had a wonderful stay at the Manor Inn. We used Castine as a base for visiting Campobello, the FDR-ER summer home. Castine is a lovely town. The Manor Inn is by far the nicest accommodation in town, and very reasonably priced. Tom, one of the innkeepers, was very welcoming (and even upgraded our room, without asking and without charge, as the Inn was not quite full mid-week). The room, #7, the Pines, was cavernous, comfortable and with lovely views of the harbor and bay. I could well imagine a roaring fire in the fireplace in the sitting area in winter. We dined at the manor our first evening and the dinner was superb. Breakfasts, made to order, were equally delicious. We arrived back the second evening, from Campibello, too late for dinner but with plenty of time to unwind at the bar. Good conversations all round. We'll certainly stay again when we are next in the mid-Maine coast.

Beautiful Inn

Given the opportunity we would stay again.

Tom and Nancy were excellent hosts, Nancy even leaving us details of how to access our room even though she was not present when we arrived. The rooms are spacious and well lit and the downstairs bar/lounge/eating area was cosy and welcoming. The log fire was particularly welcome on one of the colder nights of our three night visit. Breakfasts were good honest filling meals. We booked in for the evening meals for the three nights of our stay and we were not disappointed by the menu or portion size presented to us.

Gem of East Coast

A Relaxing Weekend on the Maine Coast

5 on May 02, 2015

This Historic Inn has a beautiful view of the bay and ocean and wonderful location off the beaten path. It is close to the beaten path, but certainly not on it. Welcoming hosts, great breakfast choices, comfortable beds and very clean large rooms with lots of windows for light make it a most comfortable place to stay. Our room had an enclosed sun porch which was very nice. I can't wait to return in the Fall of this year.
