Maine in June at Dockside Guest Quarters

5 on June 26, 2017

Dockside was exactly what we were looking for. The peaceful setting and the views was perfect for our trip.


Family Reunion and Rehearsal Dinner

5 on August 27, 2016

We had ten rooms and relatives from all over the country. Everyone exclaimed, “What a setting; its gorgeous!” Ages ranged from 6 to 91, and everyone loved their time at the Dockside Inn. Rooms and views lovely, breakfast delicious, staff accommodating in every way. Occasion for reunion was our son’s wedding, and we had our rehearsal dinner at the Dockside Inn Restaurant. The food and service were outstanding. Lobster, roast beef, or beautiful vegetarian dinner. Cocktails and appetisers on the lawn before dinner. Idyllic.


Perfect Getaway

5 on August 26, 2016

My husband and I recently stayed at the Dockside for two nights. We had been there several times before, but not recently. We were reminded of what a perfect place it is! Once we park the car, everything is easy, comfortable, taken care of, fantastic. We use the bikes, beach chairs, umbrella and beach towels. Two days feels like a week, as we enjoy a leisurely and delicious breakfast, relax on the lawn, bike to the beach, take a boat out on the river, eat mussels and sip wine in the evening at the excellent restaurant right on the premises. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. It is the perfect getaway - thank you Eric, Carol and all! We'll be back as soon as we can...


Wonderful stay.

4.4 on July 10, 2016

The room was comfortable and the people were great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be staying here again. We would recommend the Dockside Guest Quarters to our friends and anyone else who would ask. Our score for onsite dining is for the Dockside Restaurant where we had dinner on our anniversary. It did not meet our expectations. The breakfast served at the Dockside Guest Quarters was plentiful and delicious.


Lovely property, great location

4.0 on October 18, 2015

Enjoyed our stay, rooms decorated very tastefully, dear suited to the location. Staff very friendly, breakfast had variety of breads, hot dishes, fresh fruit and drinks, and was varied each day. Breakfast area was a bit small for number of guests being served. Dockside had a number of cottages, plus the main house, and a full restaurant in a separate building. We ate there twice, food and service was excellent.


Beautiful and Relaxing Getaway

4.8 on October 03, 2015

The setting was beautiful! We had our own private cottage right at the waters edge. The sunrises over the water seen from our rooms sliding glass doors and private deck were amazing! Breakfast was delicious and the lobster dinner at their restaurant was wonderful. Sat. morning Eric took us for a lovely cruise. We enjoyed our stay the Dockside so much that once we arrived we didn't move our car for 2 days.

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.
