We recently spent two nights at the Seaside Inn on our way to Monhegan Island. We picked the inn on the basis of its proximity to the ferry dock. (We could leave our car in the Inn's parking lot as we continued on to Monhegan). We found much more than convenience.
Betsy and Dale were gracious hosts - informative and friendly but not too intrusive. The rooms, while not plush by any means, were sparkling clean. The bed was comfortable. The best part was the food. Upon arrival there were homemade pumpkin muffins waiting in the sitting room. Unlike many B&B's you actually got to choose what to have for breakfast. I chose huevos rancheros, which were delicious. Good huevos rancheros in Maine? Who knew! At night we ate at the Dip Net Restaurant, across the street from the inn and right on the water. It's a funky, unassuming place with lobsters that taste like they were just picked from the sea. It was too late in the season to take advantage of the art gallery that is right next door to the inn.
If you prefer small and simple to cookie cutter tourist venues this is the place for you.
