We spent two wonderful days and nights at Blue Skye, and will certainly stay here again when we're next in the area. The comfort and hospitality afforded by Jan is among the very best we've ever experienced. The 1755 colonial house has been very well brought into the modern age without any compromise to the sense of the place as it was originally. Others have mentioned the incredible breakfast that's presented, and we've never experienced one like it; the cornucopia runneth over! There are books galore; we were particularly impressed at finding the Sibley birding guides on the living room side table. An unusual feature is the availability of a large refrigerator in which guests may store items needing refrigeration. We made good use of it to keep the sausages and other items we bought at Morse's delicatessen, about 5 miles up Route 220. Typical of the generosity with which guests are treated, that refrigerator is stocked with diet Coke, some really good beer, seltzer water, and milk. In sum, it's a wonderful experience, and we'll surely stay here again.
[It's true that, as complained about by another reviewer, that the place sits along the road, and that there is the occasional whoosh of the occasional passing car, with emphasis on the word occasional. One has to be exquisitely sensitive to be be bothered by it.]

Room Tip: We stayed in the idiosyncratic little suite at the back of the main floor, and would ask for it on our next visit. It's best described as cosy, with lots of light, a separate entrance should one want to use it, and it's on the side of the house away from the road (important for those who wish maximum quiet). It has its own little balcony, which is great for star-watching on brilliantly clear nights.

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting family in area and found this a great retreat. Very clean room and bathroom ensuite and comfy bed. Breakfast was 8-930 am and everyone sits around grand table together eating muesli and cereals, various fruits, and whatever hot dish Jan is serving that morning (e.g., french toast, zucchini fritata, blueberry coffee cake). The atmosphere of the old house is quite wonderful, including the old furniture and hand stenciled "wall paper." We didn't need to use the air conditioner in the window as there was a cool snap. Would stay here again if necessary.

Room Tip: If you are light sleeper don't get a front room as you may hear traffic altho' AC device might mask it. Traffic didn't bother us as we are city people.

Great old colonial house off the beaten path. Located very close to the rural road that ensures you would hear every car go by if you have a front room. The doors to the front of the house, our bathroom and our shower stuck so badly that they could not be closed completely. Seems that Jan, the very nice owner, would invest in these minor but irritating repairs. Not being able to close the front door is a bit disconcerting! The breakfast was very good, prepared by Jan herself. Fresh berries, muesli, French toast that is beyond the ordinary, and great tasting sausage. Be aware that Jan would like payment in cash or check.

janMaine, Owner at Blue Skye Farm, responded to this reviewResponded 7 August 2013

My Californian guest was welcomed during a spell of most unusual Maine weather. Very hot, followed by very wet weather combined to shrink and then swell the wooden doors, many of the interior ones being original to the house. Anyone thinking of staying in a 1774 wooden New England home which advertises itself as offering a taste of a long ago world should expect just that. My guest was a late booking, which indicates to me that a hotel more to his taste was not available and he found himself instead at Blue Skye. Had he reserved ahead or perused my website he would have been well aware of our preference, along with most small inns, for payment by check or cash. We graciously accept credit cards when proffered. Blue Skye is old. Its walls are crooked. Weather depending, the doors don't fit and the floorboards creak. These are quirks to be enjoyed, not repaired.

Lovely old house with shiny painted floors, beautifully and simply decorated, bathed in light. The perfect retreat on gorgeous grounds and conveniently located to all the mid-coast villages. We stayed in the l-shaped attic room which was enchanting, especially the sleeping loft with it's tiny window and accompanying frog chorus. Perfect for the kid or kid at heart. We slept more peacefully here than anywhere we could recall ever sleeping. Innkeeper Jan is delightful and accommodating. Will definitely return if we ever get the chance!!

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.
