I find myself struggling to find the words to do this place justice, but here goes. My wife and I got married here and from planning to execution, the Blair Hill Inn creates an inviting, relaxed and elegant atmosphere. In all of our travels, we have not found accommodations that we more highly recommend.
Moosehead Lake is a beautiful area of Maine, with a range of activities for families, couples, and anyone looking to enjoy nature and quietude. With easily the best possible view of the lake and mountains surrounding it, Blair Hill Inn complements the natural beauty and elevates it to something like heaven. The building, perched on a green hill with beautiful stonework and several towering pines, is majestic. They could sell me passes just to sit on the large porch and enjoy the view it affords.
The interior design is absolutely perfect, with tasteful, high end furniture and décor that doesn’t feel dusty or stuffy like some New England inns can. It strikes an absolute perfect balance of old and new features with such thoughtfulness in every aspect. Just when you think a day at the Blair Hill Inn is nearing perfection, you will witness a sunset from its windows that is unparalleled.
You also cannot go wrong with any of the rooms. Our family members booked up the whole inn for our wedding. The Inn became our home for the weekend and after spending time in each room, we didn’t at any point think someone drew a short straw. Each space is different, with a unique arrangement, feature or design that makes us want to stay in it.
Food is a big draw for this place and we loved all that we ate there. Our guests enjoyed lamb, swordfish, and pork loin for the wedding and every dish was savory and fresh. The breakfasts were awesome (I've never been excited over eggs until I tried theirs) and the service was, in keeping with a theme you might have noticed, perfect.
What really brings the whole experience together is the efforts of owners Ruth and Dan. They are the best. Over the course of our planning they did everything to be helpful, accommodating, and patient. They are two of the nicest people we've ever met and I can't imagine such a beautiful place in the hands of better people.
In summary, we will come back any chance we get. Even though it's a 5 hour drive from Boston and we may only stay one night, we know it will feel worthwhile. Stay here!
