Reserved a room on short notice to attend a memorial service in Castine at MMA. We were not familiar with the area and also needed an early arrival time. We were so pleasantly surprised at how friendly and accommodating the folks were. Definitely makes us want to return.

We were very impressed with the hotel, room and beautiful view out our window. We loved the furniture in the room. The four poster bed was so nice. We opened the windows at night. The refreshing breeze off the bay was great.

What make the Ft. Knox Inn one of our favorite stops? A polite and accommodating staff, Clean comfortable rooms, Ample, easy parking and its location provides easy access to Bangor, Belfast, and Ellsworth. The view from those rooms facing the River is wonderful. Old fashion Ambiance and style. We will be back.

The hotel was perfectly situated in the quaint town of Bucksport, Maine. All the shops were in walking distance. We loved walking on the boardwalk along the Penobscot River at night time. Hubs from nearby Blue Hill. I kept telling him if we have to move to Maine, this town would be in our top 10. The staff was extremely...

Couldn't provide a more picturesque view! Room was comfortable and clean and the Inn has a friendly atmosphere. Parking is also convenient and access to nearby areas is easy. Good location for a several day stay in the area.

Found this hotel last minute after a reservation fell through with a different hotel. Didn't know much about it, only booked because it was the only hotel with a room available. Upon arrival, we were happily greeted by name, given the room keys, and experienced great customer service. Our room was decent. It was bigger than we expected. The beds...

The photos of this property showing the water views are accurate and the lights on the bridge and the Fort cross the river are beautiful. This is a simple lodging about 45 minutes drive to Acadia National Park. This summer, for the parks 100 birthday it was flooded with visitors and several roads were closed. This lodging, though simple, was...
