The Inn on the Harbor in Stonington, Maine on Deer Harbor is one of those places you absolutely love to tell people about, but are afraid that if too many people know about it, it will become just another tourist trap. The Inn is comprised of mulitple connected Victorian buildings located directly in a working fishing village. Most of the rooms are on the waterfront with access to decks displaying colorfull flowers and comfortable seating.
The rooms are decorated to represent various Schooners. We stayed in the American Eagle, a two bedroom unit on the second floor with its own private deck overlooking the Harbor. Recently renovated it was clean, confortable and large enough to host the gathering of four copules who traveled together in their sports cars to discover downeast Maine's great coastal roads. The room rates are great for it's location on the water, the comfort of the place and the continental breakfast that is served. The staff and inn keeper truly make you feel rilght at home. It's a great place to relax and explore an area not inundated with tourists. I know my husband and I are plannilng on returning next year for the Lupine Festival uusually held in June.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- OPEN YEAR ROUND Known for its unique charm and spectacular view of the Penobscot Bay islands, the Inn on the Harbor on Deer Isle offers a perfect romantic waterfront retreat. Built in the 1880s and perched right on the edge of picturesque Stonington Harbor, this bed and breakfast captures the very essence of Maine's Downeast island life. Ten of the thirteen individually decorated guestrooms face the sea and enjoy gorgeous views of Isle au Haut, the Windjammers and the island's fishing fleet. Guests can relax on the spacious flower-covered deck extending out into the harbor and enjoy the tide rising and falling beneath the Inn. They can fall asleep to the sound of nearby Mark Island Light's foghorn and wake up to the lobstermen heading out to sea. Several of our rooms have wood burning fireplaces and/or private decks. Our accommodations are relaxed and comfortable, all with private baths and sitting areas. The coastal atmosphere, with fresh salt air and brilliant sunny skies, encourages many of our guests to simply put their feet up and relax while watching Stonington's bustling waterfront. This is Maine's Downeast island life at its best. ... more less
