A Do-Over

4.8 on September 17, 2012

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at The Greenville Inn. We stayed in Cottage #5. It was a beautifully decorated, quaint and comfortable space overlooking the mountains, at a surprisingly affordable price. The Inn is stunning with the original mahogany paneling and stainglass windows. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. This is definitely a do-over!

Greenville Inn stay June 14-16 2012

5 on June 18, 2012

My wife and I stayed in cottage #4 and had a wonderful stay. We are picky, but must say we were thoroughly impressed. The inn and the cottages are immaculate. The inn itself retains most, if not all, of it's original Victorian features. The dining room is very nice and has a warm, cozy feel. The inn was not yet open for dinner during our stay which was a pity since the options in Greenville are limited and average at best. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The inn is located within easy walking distance of "downtown" Greenville. and getting around the Moosehead Lake area was easy given the excellent location.The owners, Terry and Jeff were friendly and knowledgeable. We highly Recommend considering the Greenville Inn if you are lucky enough to find yourselves in this beautiful part of Maine. Mike and Donna C.

Our Family Getaway

5 on July 23, 2011

The Greenville Inne is a site to behold - an elegant structure at the top of the hill on Norris Street - overlooking beautiful landscapes and purple mountains. The grounds are an artful mixture of nature left to the wild and manicured elegance with cozy nooks for reading and playing games with the family. The common rooms have a spa getaway feel with deep leather couches, quiet restful background music and a variety of detailed decorations for the eye to wander. The owners quickly become friends and guides who you hope to run into for an interesting chat. They were patient and accomodating with our family of five - loveley to the children as well as the adults. The main dining room is a relaxed yet upscale place to enjoy a sunny breakfast or a quiet dinner while watching the sun set over the mountains. It was wonderful to enjoy a day in the wild - climbing mountains in the rain, paddling large ponds looking for moose, swimming at the top of waterfalls and hiking challenging trains - and then returning to civilized quiet oasis with all the comforts of home plus more to relax, read, sleep, play games or watch movies with the kids. We are already checking our schedule for our next visit to The Greenville Inne.

The most outstanding Inn

5 on June 06, 2011

Everything from the building and rooms to the views to the wonderful hosts to the delicious meals were reminiscent of the great inns of the northeast mountains many years ago. It was great to renew an old friendship with Jeff and to make a new friend of Terry. The icing on the cake was the enjoyable canoe trip to see moose on a "Moose safari".

Elegance in the wilderness

4.6 on March 06, 2011

The Greenville area is a hotbed of outdoor activities in summer and winter, but most accomodations are rustic. The Greenville Inn is an oasis of civility and elegance in the wilderness. The building is gorgeous! We spent a lot of time just ogling the magnificent woodwork and other original details. Our room was very comfortable and Jeff could not have been more accomodating. Highly recommended!

Felt like royalty

5 on January 19, 2011

This was our second stay and we were not disappointed again. Our first visit was in July so we wanted to see a Maine winter.Very romantic stay in the mansion this time-beautiful suite with the softest robes.Felt like royalty in the Master suite!Owners and housekeeper are genuinely nice.

Outstanding Greenville Inn in Maine

We loved everything about our stay. Colors of trees & views were just perfect. Hosts were helpful and interesting.Delightful!

Review of Tower Room

3.6 on October 10, 2010

The room was pretty much as pictured at the web site and was clearly decorated with a great deal of attention to detail. The pictures did not convey the fantastic sense of privacy (it's basically a separate guesthouse). The owner, Jeff, was very responsive to a couple of minor issues (fuse blew on the jacuzzi, toiled clogged).

Wonderful place to stay

4.8 on September 08, 2010

Jeff and Terry are great hosts. Dinner dining is exceptional and Jeff's breakfasts are a special treat.

Amazing Vacation Experience

4.6 on September 03, 2010

I stayed in one of their private cottages for a week and enjoyed by stay tremendously. The service was friendly and flexible, entirely accommodating, and the owners are wonderful! I fully intend to return soon for another visit. Greenville Inn is worth every single penny!

Weekend at the Greenville Inn

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary with a weekend at this lovely Victorian country inn. the owners went out of their way to make this a special occasion for us. The home-cooked breakfasts were superb!

Great Find

5 on October 19, 2008

We happened on the Greenville Inn unexpectedly, as we just struck out for Moosehead Lake without plans. This was an unexpected pleasure. Our room was small, but that was all we asked for. It was perfectly appointed. The breakfasts were exceptional, and offered opportunity to converse with the other guests. The service was very warm, and responsive, with great recommendations for excursions.

Views and close to town

4.6 on July 14, 2008

I love this inn. It's walking distance to town and yet feels like a destination in itself. When you walk in and see the rich foyer and mahogony walls in the common room, you know you're in for some elegance. The rooms are incredible. I got a chance to see a number of the rooms and there are tons of cottages and 2 BR suites that are perfect for families - something you don't often see at elegant B&Bs. We had dinner at the inn and the food was so memorable. I can still taste the fabulous fish and the wonderful dessert. Terry and Jeff are really interesting. We so enjoyed meeting them. I highly recommend the Greenville Inn.

Totally loved it

5 on July 14, 2008

I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Greenville Inn. I just loved it. It is elegant yet not pretentious, and welcoming while still sophisticated and distinctive. We had dinner there and the food was fabulous; better than we find anywhere in our city location. We were seated by the window, which was open. Music from the concert in town wafted up the hill to the inn, and we watched the sun set over the lake. My husband and I thought there coldn't be a more wonderful place anywhere in New England. We stayed in the Tower Suite. It has everything you could ever want - a double jacuzzi, fireplace, incredibly comfortable king bed and a sitting area in a loft-like (a few steps up) area with a telescope to see over the lake. The views from this room are just great. I was able to peek into some of the other rooms, and saw a few of the cottages. This inn really offers something for everyone. Great cottages with their own porches set up on a hill with fabulous views of the lake, along with lovely inn rooms too. I give a two-thumbs up review of the Greenville Inn.

Our Honeymoon Stay

Summer 05

4.0 on March 09, 2008

My wife and I stayed at one of the their cottages for several nights. We used it as our home base as we enjoyed the noth woods of Maine and the lakes. The Johannemann family was very accomodating. Making our reservation without any recommendations turned out to be a great choice. I would definitely recommend it if you plan to be up that way.

A Great Visit

Fabulous Bed & Breakfast

5 on March 12, 2007

My family had the pleasure of staying at the inn in December and it was absolutely magnificent. The decor in the room was stunning and the hosts were very attentive to our needs. The views from the inn are breathtaking and I highly recommend this inn to all who visit the area!

Charming B&B with a personal touch

5 on February 26, 2007

My husband and I stayed at the Inn 3 years ago and we loved the place. The service was great, the chef was very accommodating to our dietary needs and the food was excellent too. The Inn as well as our room was beautiful and clean. The grounds were nice and well manicured. The Inn is situated in a great location. It is walking distance into town. This was a plus. We would definitely return to the Greenville Inn.

Wonderful time at the Greenville Inn

5 on February 26, 2007

The Greenville Inn is an impeccably maintained historic building with cozy rooms and gracious Innkeepers. We were there for 3 nights Feb 07. Room 23 has a fireplace and an antique soaker tub - highly recommended. Breakfasts are delicious and the breakfast room has a wonderful view of the Lake. My family has been in the Inn business since 1889, so I recognize the attributes of a great establishment; The Greenville Inn certainly fits the bill.

Victorian Elegance

5 on February 22, 2007

I recently stayed at the Greenville Inn and I must say that I have finally found "my inn!" This is the place where you can relax in an elegantly decorated victorian inn while admiring the snow covered mountains and and iced over lake, in the winter of course! As an avid "bed and breakfast-er," I have seen it all and nothing compares to the charm, sophistication, elegance, and hospitality of this beautiful inn. Now that I have become so spoiled by the Greenville Inn, I will have make it my exclusive Maine destination.

Greenville Seaplane Flying

5 on February 19, 2007

My husband and I stayed at the greenville inn this past Sept 2006. We stayed in the one of the cottages. The cottage was very quaint and very comfortable. The owners of the Greenville inn and there staff were very attentative to our needs. The food in the dining room was delicious as was the atmosphere in the dining room and the complete lodge and cabins. We are looking forward to coming back and staying the cottage again this Sept. 2007. My husband has been coming to the Greenville Seaplane Flying for over 20 years and now says he will not stay anywhere else for know one when we go to Greenville except a the Inn. We hope to get up there this winter to do some snowmobiling, we will stay at the Greenville Inn if they are open.

great service, very clean and fresh, outstanding meals

Peace and Solitude

5 on February 13, 2007

We have been staying at the Greenville Inn for over 15 years and we have never been disappointed. Well, we are always disappointed if we stay during a period when the dining room is closed because we miss their incredible dinners. It is romantic and quiet and a perfect escape from hectic day to day life. The Inn is a presence in town and it makes a lovely statement of gentility and quality. My husband is currently deployed to Afghanistan with the Army and we chose to spend the last weekend before he left at the Greenville Inn and we hope to spend the first weekend there when he returns. Beautiful memories.

Winter At Moosehead Lake

4.2 on February 11, 2007

This past January we had the pleasure of visiting the Moosehead Lake area of northern Maine. Upon the recommendation of a friend we stayed at the Greenville Inn. Our hosts were friendly interesting people and it was obvious they wanted to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The inn was a true beauty! The food was excellent and the setting was beautiful!

Love the view!

5 on February 11, 2007

My husband and I stayed at the Greenville Inn during the International Seaplane Fly-In. The service was superb, the food "to-die-for", and the decor and Victorian charm delightful! John & Sherah Carr

Wonderful and Charming!

5 on February 10, 2007

The Greenville Inn was wonderful, and cozy, and charming, and the owners and staff were wonderful and made us feel so welcome! The Inn itself is beautiful, and the location cannot be beat! Eating breakfast every morning on their porch while looking at Moosehead Lake & the mountains was just breathtaking. I cannot say enough good things about this place!

Perfect Escape

5 on February 10, 2007

My girlfriend and I stayed here for only one night, but it was a very relaxing and beautiful night. The innkeepers are very friendly and accomodating and the food was second to none. We were able to see a entire family of moose down the road from the inn that night, and this made our entire trip! This was our first trip to Maine, but certainly not our last. Fred and Kimberly

Innkeeper Response
Thank you Fred & Kimberly! We always enjoy hearing how much guests have enjoyed staying at our inn. As innkeepers, it is gratifying to know that we have helped make the trip to Maine so special. We want to keep our guests coming back year after year.
