“Good place, good value”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights. Upon arrival, we met the owner, Fran, who is a nice, chatty person. She was very welcoming and gave us good suggestions for restaurants.
The room was ok but a bit cramped although it was billed as a "queen-sized" room. We noticed that the room next door had exactly the same furnishings but was roomier. Our room was directly across from the ice machine which concerned us at first but we did not hear it at all. The a/c was great. One odd thing, the room had a nice kitchenette - microwave, refrigerator, and sink. But, it was like someone got sidetracked halfway through putting the kitchenette together. There were absolutely no utensils, plates, flatware, dish towels or soap, a dish drainer, etc. So, if you are planning to use the kitchenette, keep in mind that you will need to bring or buy some basic supplies.
Breakfast is a "continental" breakfast that consists of coffee, tea, bagels, hard-boiled eggs, apples, english muffins, cold cereal, pop tarts, yoghurt, and, on one day, cut-up fresh fruit.
The location was good: north of Camden and Rockport both of which have a lot of tourists in the summer. We'd stay here again if we were in the area.

This is an odd but pleasant motel. I would not consider it to be an inn or a B&B. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. But any charm comes from the quirky behavior of the owner, who is pleasant and well meaning. Those characteristics make it impossible to complain. Our room was large and quiet, facing the back - a very large lawn that extends to thick woods. We did not try the small swimming pool. Our room seems as if it must have been adjusted to accommodate a wet bar and microwaive which are more or less in the middle of the room. Beyond them are a jacuzzi and chair. A sink is in a small alcove next to the separate toilet and shower. The shower stall is one piece of molded plastic or something similar with a shower curtain. The bed was a a standard full sized bed, so smaller than a queen. (We are used to that, but many couples are not.) Breakfast was OK but certainly nothing approaching what one expects from a good B+B. Eggs were hard boiled. No other egg selection. There were bagels and English muffins, cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, etc. Again, all the staff was very pleasant and attentive. Indeed ALL the staff was nice and personable. So my main message is not to criticize the Inn but to moderate the visitor's expectations. I would probably try somewhere else next time, but if they were sold out, I would certainly return.

Stayed for two nights. Fran and Keith were real nice. Nice quiet rooms. Entire Inn was very clean. There was coffee and juice, bagels, muffins, yogurt in the morning. I would stay again. Perfect for a peaceful get a way. Close to good lobster and the water.

After reading the reviews, my husband and I decided to stay here on a recent Friday night. The room we were given on the first floor had a musty odor to it when we arrived, but I thought that it may have just needed to air out. We had plans for the day and evening, so headed out. Upon arriving back at 10:30 pm, the room still smelled and we discovered that there was mildew on all of the drapes. I went to the front desk, but nobody was there. There was a cleaning lady who told me that the owner had gone shopping and would be back in a half hour. I asked if we could call the owner, but was told no. Once the owner arrived at 11:20 pm, she was extremely helpful and switched our room to a suite on the second floor. We finally got settled in around midnight. The owner explained that she had recently purchased the inn. It was previously an assisted living center, but that did not succeed. The furnishings were adequate (although a bit outdated). The clock did not work. There was a bulb out in the bathroom. The towels were very old and in need of replacement. The pool looked nice, although we did not get a chance to use it. The cost was comparable to other hotels in the area, so unfortunately, we will not be staying here again.

We spent two nights and three days in Lincolnville, Me area. Our stay at the Black Horse Inn was excellent. The rooms are large, with refrig, Micro,cable tv,desk sink and pool. Everything seemed to be brand new.Two very comfortable chairs with table.Plenty of closet space. Only a few miles from the Camden, Rockport area.The continental breakfast was excellent in a very nice dining area.
The Innkeeper Francesca was very personable and was very attentive to all our needs and questions.
Would definitely stay there again.

Lovely inn. I had a wonderful 3 night stay. Clean and quiet. The innkeeper is wonderful and goes out of her way to be helpful. Will definitely stay there again. The pool area is very nice even though I didn't get a chance to use it.

Room Tip: All of the room seem very comfortable.

Our party of six booked three rooms for a Saturday night get-a-way to the Camden area. This is a great inn. The property is newly re-opened and has been recently renovated. The entire facility was extremely clean. The rooms are very spacious, the linens were of high quality and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. Our friendly innkeeper served up a wonderful breakfast the next morning of cinnamon french toast topped with fresh strawberries, followed by scrambled eggs. This was in addition to the already generous breakfast bar of various cereals, bagels, toaster pastry, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fresh fruits, juice and coffee. As we sat and enjoyed breakfast, a wild turkey and her two tiny chicks wondered from the woods and crossed the back yard. The weather was not nice enough for us to try out the pool, nor did we have the time with everything else there is to see and do in this area, but it looked very appealing from our room. We all thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.
