My husband and I visited the area for my husband's college reunion at nearby Bowdoin. Fortunately, a last minute change in plans allowed us to stay at the Inn. We were thrilled with the choice and couldn't have been happier with our accomodations. As previous reviews have stated, the location on Casco Bay is just lovely as are the beautiful...

Harpswell Inn is a wonderful location. Rooms range from singles to suites to cottages. Each is appointed with new, nicely decorated items. Grounds are large, near the water, and well maintained. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful, and provide a delicious breakfast to start your day. Great on suggesting nearby dining spots. Highly recommend it for individual stays, or...

We had a lovely overnight stay at the Harpswell Inn. The breakfast was wonderful -- especially the ginger zucchini bread. Richard and Ann are great hosts - and I returned home with a copy of the zucchini bread recipe. We stayed in the Captains Quarters with a beautiful view of the water, lovely bath and an incredibly comfortable bed. We'll...

Unfriendly innkeepers with attitudes, breakfast was a disappointment, and when the nights got cold, the patrons were told "we don't turn the heat on until October". My husband and I were glad to leave at the end of the week.

My girlfriend surprised me with this trip in October and I didn't have any idea where we were going. We stayed at the Harpswell Inn our first night in Maine, on our way up to Acadia. We arrived late, about 1am, so I really wasn't expecting much service. Richard was there to greet us and show us around the Inn...

My husband and I stayed at Harpswell Inn for our 12th anniversary. We are from Virginia and 1st time in Maine. The Inn was beautiful - very clean and I thought the Inn Keepers were friendly. The breakfast was also very good - small portions but good enough for us. The problems were number one was location. We had to...

Stayed for a few nights in June. Owner/innkeeper didn't have a record of our reservation. In fact, reservations are simply written down on random bits of paper or a small calendar, not scheduled with the help of a computer. Herein lies the problem with the Harpswell: They don't take care of the basics. First basic need not met: The guest...

We wanted to have a waypoint on a Maine trip between Kennebunk and Boothbay Harbor. Based on TripAdvisors we chose to stay with Richard and Ann, and the Harpswell Inn. The weather was spectacular, except for a brief torrential rain shower in the middle of the afternoon. We stayed in a cute little room at the top of the stairs,...

My husband and I booked the Look Out room at the Harpswell for his birthday. The room was beautiful, with a water view & a little balcony (though too much snow to enjoy!). The bathroom was very nice, with a jacuzzi tub, and a lovely bed and sitting area in front of a fireplace. We looked at a nice suite...

My wife and I have been visiting the Inn since our daughter attended Bowdoin College in the late '90s. We enjoyed our visits to Maine so much, that we still return every year, long after our daughter has graduated. We became very close with the previous owners and have quickly come to love the new owners as well. Every time...
