“Best in Maine”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Have been going there for years, often more than once a year. Simple and restful decor, comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts, and all in a great Midcoast location. We have got to know Jan, the innkeeper, over the years, and always look forward to visiting with her during our stays. This is one of the best, if not the best, of the many B&Bs we have stayed at, not only in Maine, but coast to coast.

My husband and I have stayed at Blue Skye Farm once or twice a summer for the past nine years, usually in the same room (Upper South). The house is a lovely hip-roof clapboard Federal furnished simply but comfortably, and with not a single straw hat, doll, or teddy bear in sight. Beds are extremely comfortable, combining traditional linens with occasional eclectic touches. In fact, overall lack of sentimentality in the house's decor is probably what we most appreciate, as we've been to many New England B&Bs where we've found the interiors to be a bit "sweet." Aside from the house, we particularly enjoy visiting with Jan, owner/cook/decorator, and possessor of a wonderfully wry sense of humor.
We look forward to our breakfasts at Blue Skye. There is always a choice of juice, fresh-baked breads, berries in season, and a tasty granola whose recipe Jan has shared with me. Besides these items, there'll be a hot entreé, sweet or savory, always delicious. Breakfast is served at a table seating eight, though since we are up early, many times we're alone. (My husband and I think we prefer this, but then, often wind up meeting someone interesting with whom to share travel experiences in the area, so really, it's a win-win setup.)
If you'd like to spend time in a lovely old house situated slightly off the beaten track, surrounded by meadows and marshes, if you prefer comfort, simplicity, and welcoming hosts, Blue Skye Farm is your best choice.

Room Tip: We prefer Upper South for its fireplace and extra space to spread out, but have stayed in Upper Nort...

We enjoyed our four night stay over the 4th of July weekend. Blue Skye Farm is a great location for touring the area - Booth Bay Harbor, Bath, Rockport, and Camden. The Inn is casual and we appreciated being able to use the kitchen to make our dinner. Breakfasts were fantastic and hearty! We spent our evenings reading on the 3 season porch, enjoying our pie from Moody's! My only recommendation to make things better is to make the coffee stronger!

Room Tip: Even the rooms where you have to walk across the hall to the bathroom are great!

Came there by chance after visiting the Olsen House. Captivated by the charm of the softly lit entrance, we felt at instant ease. Expect Extra-ordinary accommodations, Idyllic grounds and a delicious breakfast. Blue Skye Farm is a wonderful place to return to after a day exploring the nearby peninsula, to unwind in the reading room with a thoughtful selection of tea. It goes without saying, Jan and Peter are incredible hosts.

My husband and I have stayed twice at the Blue Skye Farm for short getaway weekends in the off season. Because we live 4 hours away, both times we have arrived late, after the innkeepers retired for the evening. Both times, we have found notes welcoming us, the first time providing directions to our room, and the second time stating "welcome back, you know where your room is!" Both times we have stayed in Upper South by choice. I love this room with its four poster bed and fireplace, and in fact I loved everything about this beautifully maintained and furnished house. On both occasions, we have also arrived to lovely fires, as if the innkeepers had just stepped out! (In fact, they have; the innkeepers live in a separate house just behind the main house.)

Upper South has a bathroom down the hallway, although the bathroom is private, not shared. As the other rooms have not been occupied when we have been there, we have felt very comfortable with this arrangement.

This is the only B&B where we have stayed that invites guests to have full use of the kitchen, so although there are no restaurants in the immediate neighborhood, guests can make dinner and eat at the house, as if it were their own! We have eaten out when at Blue Skye, however, as it was a getaway, and Jan has been very helpful in suggesting nearly restaurants.

The house is located fairly close to the road, but above the road, and we were never bothered by traffic. The grounds are clearly attractive and well maintained, although we have visited in the season before the flowers bloom. We were able to take an enjoyable hike up into the woods behind the house on one trip.

We would be regulars if we didn't live so far away! The off season specials provide excellent value. Jan and Peter have created a welcoming and comfortable B&B in a beautiful (and quiet in the off season!) part of the Maine coast.

Stayed there during a holiday in New England in October 2012.I turned up on the off chance and late in the afternoon and was immediately made to feel welcome and at home,being offered tea and a seat next to a very inviting log fire.The sitting room and dining room are full of beautiful furniture,the bedroom was ideal and the breakfast was excellent. Jan,the host ,was lovely to talk to I cannot recommend the Blue Skye Farm too highly,it is perfect.

We stayed three night while visiting friends.

Lovely breakfast of homemade muesli, fruit, yogurt, juice and coffee followed by eggs, French toast or another sweet or savory dish.

Our bed was comfortable and smelled wonderfully fresh. We were upstairs in the Upper South which has a fireplace, a small sofa, and a desk. No closets but plenty of hangers on a neat coat rack to hang jackets and shirts. The bathroom (shower - no bathtub) is down a private hall and was clean and fitted with everything one needs.

This is one of the few B&B's without a resident pet. Which, being allergic to dogs & cats, is important to me. Lots of books to read and just enough interesting decorations to be pleasantly uncluttered.

The B&B is well-organized and welcoming. And has excellent WiFi.

We managed a one-trip to Deer Isle and a one-day trip to Portland while visiting Waldoboro friends and the location was very convenient for us.

Room Tip: Call the B&B if you have particular needs. Jan will help.
