“Beauty at ocean's edge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is one of the most naturally beautiful sites for a seaside inn that I've ever encountered, and the innkeepers have made it even prettier--especially the pool-spa-sauna area, which is both attractive and very comfortable. (The hot tub is perfect.) No restaurant or room service, but the continental-plus-hot-entrees breakfast is quite exceptionally good, and you're no more than a five-minute drive from restaurants of every imaginable kind. We stayed in one of the two poolhouse suites, which are handsome and spacious.

Some small-to-medium-sized problems:

(1) The pillows are good but not great.

(2) Access for guests with limited mobility is problematic (especially since there is no parking directly adjacent to the poolhouse). The pool area is difficult, if not impossible, for such guests to manage.

(3) No wifi in the poolhouse on the weekend that we stayed there. The management said that its service was in the process of being upgraded and offered us an unsolicited cash rebate in apology, which was very gracious. (Excellent service all around, by the way.)

If none of these things is an issue for you, you'll love it here.

We stayed here for four nights in July. What a wonderful place. Friendy staff, large and comfortable rooms, and a great breakfast. The Inn is in a wonderful spot; right on Penobscot Bay.
The Inn has no restaurant but this is not a problem as there are a few choices about a mile or more down the road at Lincoln beach. Camden is only a five minute drive down the road.
We would certainly recommend this property to friends and family.

My husband and I live in Maine and wanted a little break away. The Inn did the trick. Holly greeted us upon arrival like we were family. The grounds are beautiful, including the heated pool and hot tub. Comfortable lounge chairs to relax and watch the boats sail by. The room are very comfortable with thoughtful details. The breakfast was great. We will return again.

Having never been on the Maine coast before, we were trying to find the ideal place to stay that would give us a good feel for coastal Maine. Happily we stumbled on the Inn at Ocean's Edge. Perfect location to explore other areas in addition to enjoying the inn's grounds and beach.

We were very happy with our stay at the inn and will absolutely recommend it to friends and family. We were very happy with everything, location, room design, property amenities and their excellent condition. Also very much enjoyed the breakfast.

Traveling as a family of four. The inn gave us a large spacious, very clean room (I think they are all very spacious) that had a comfortable king bed, and sofa bed. Further they brought in a nice roll-away so each child had their own bed. With all these beds, there was still plenty of room to spread out.

The infinity pool and surrounding grounds were fabulous--and they have a great pool house with changing rooms, snacks and drinks (on the honor system).

Our only wish was that we could have stayed longer. A 10 on all counts.

We enjoyed our getaway here so much. The setting is beautiful, accommodations are lovely, breakfast was a delight and the staff is wonderful. From the moment I called to ask a few questions-through our entire stay we were guided by Holly. She suggested restaurants and activities in the area and was so personable and professional. The entire staff is helpful and kind- they think of little touches that make your stay special. We will be back! Thanks again!

The grounds are beautiful; nicest we have seen on the Maine coast. The staff are very personable and welcoming. The rooms are very spacious bit sparsely decorated; not as nice as Inn At Sunrise Point.

This lovely hotel is set between Lincolnville and Camden.

A long winding drive takes you to the hotel itself. The hotel has the feeling of a genteel New England Home. From the moment you walk through the door you feel welcome. The staff actually seem pleased that you've chosen to stay here.

Our room was beautiful. A large bed, a seating area and even a whirlpool bath. The bathroom itself was nicely provisioned and like the room was spotlessly clean. This together with a lovely view across manicured lawns and well tended gardens, down to the ocean.

The breakfasts were excellent, none of the look-warm food left on the side that you get at other hotels. There was a cold buffet with plenty of choice from fresh fruit, cereal and even cake. The dining room staff then take your prepared breakfast order, this includes a daily special or omelets however you like them or the more usual bacon, sausage, egg etc.

In the afternoon there is even coffee and fresh cookies left for you.

Every little detail is thought of at this hotel, I cannot recommend it enough. If I'm ever back in this are there is no doubt where I'll be staying.
