Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Every little and big detail was tended to in this lovely old inn. Good organic coffee available all of the time.Room was fine and the ability to Sit in a library and have a cup of coffee while working on a laptop was very relaxing. The town of Blue Hill with all that it has to offer was just a mile away. Many thanks to Isaac and Lori for their kind attention

4/5 Good

Comfortable night
Stayed a Monday night I’m October. Not busy so we were upgraded to larger room which was nice gesture. Good coffee in library but no breakfast. Our host was helpful with map of restaurants that were open Mon nights )their brick oven pizza restaurant would have been perfect but right now open Th- Sun.) Blue Hill was quieter choice than Bar Harbor- worth the drive! I would definitely stay again.

great place!
This was a great place to stay. My only suggestion is that because they couldn’t serve breakfast because of Covid but was supposed to be included in price, they should have offered a discount in their drinks or food served at take out.

Food was disappointing
Amazing location, lovely building. The down side was the restaurant. First its only open 3pm -7pm. So check in is at 3pm i arrived on a thursday it was a 4.5 hour drive for me so i specifically picked a hotel that had a restaurant since it was in the middle of no where and i didnt want to keep driving. So after getting unpacked and settled my boyfriend n i when to the restaurant that was located outside at 5pm. We just wanted a small cheese pizza the owner says its a 2.5 hour wait but they close at 7. I was mad you only have 4 guests and you cant accommodate them first. So we find a local pizza joint mentioned our place told us 2.5 hour wait on a thursday the local says oh you must be at barn castle. So if ur hotel is known for that from the locals you should tell us at the 3pm check in to put a dinner order in since u take 2 hours to make food. Also place was not packed only 3 ppl were seated. Along with that breakfast was listed on and the hotels website that breakfast is included in the price how ever breakfast was not i get it covid 19 but either take it offline your serving breakfast or serve breakfast since literally the restaurant was talking to a guy in a hole in the wall
