This hotel is very old, built in the mid 1800's, and is the definition of quaint! Rooms are small, stairs steep with multiple staircases. There is no AC so our room on the third floor was hot. The room only had one electrical outlet so we had to switch often to charge our camera batteries with the room lamps. Staff was helpful and the location is great, being only a couple of hundred feet to the Monhegan ferry. The breakfast was very good and staff do accomodate early meals for the 7:00 ferry departure. You have the feeling of being way back in time when you stay here and that is part of the experience!
