My wife and I stopped for one night, ended staying two. The room was exceptional in all ways. The Lake is beautiful, the Inn Keepers were just great in all ways. I can't say enough about how we just loved it. Looking forward to our next trip, because we will stay there, long I hope.

We stayed at the WIlson Lake Inn for two nights, and loved every moment of it. The room was a typical hotel room, but it was spotless and came with a mini fridge (which comes more in hand than you might think). The beds were a bit stiff, but everything else made up for it. Just a short stroll in the backyard and we were able to take the free of charge kayaks out on WIlson Lake and take in the breathtaking views. We highly recomend for a weekend getaway in the Lakes and Mountains region of Maine, or if you are visiting friends or family at UMF, just a quick 5-10 drive to campus.

My husband and I stumbled upon the Wilson Lake Inn and were so happy we did! The hosts were so incredibly kind and helpful; the room was spacious and super clean; and the location is simply lovely!

I really enjoyed my stay at the Wilson Lake Inn. I was trying to decide where to stay on the day before Labor Day. There weren't many options that weren't either rated poorly or very expensive. I found this hotel, and decided to stay there after reading so many positive reviews. Upon arrival, I went and checked out the lake, which is right behind the hotel. It was very beautiful. You are able to use the kayaks that they have available for free, which is a nice perk. When I checked in, the hosts were extremely helpful. They talked to me for about ten minutes about all of the different places I could go to hike and see waterfalls. The room was very clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the wireless internet was great. Everything about this hotel is just plain good.

We wrote a review for Hotels.com as we originally booked throught their site. The hosts were amazing, even loaned me one of their wine glasses. The property is absolutely beautiful and right on Wilson Lake. We had a second floor room overlooking the Lake and the front deck overlooked the immaculate gardens. The room was spacious and immaculately clean. We were just travelling through, but wished we could have stayed longer! The Inn is located conveniently off the highway in a very quiet neighborhood. We sat in chairs provided by the Inn, at lakeside enjoying a glass of wine. The hosts made reservations for us at the Calzolaio Italian gourmet restaurant. Great choice, the food was excellent.
We would definitely stay at this delightful Inn, whenever we visit again.
Coffee and Tea were available, would like to see a light breakfast or continental breakfast available too.

We are working towards a continental breakfast. I think we can work something into the inner lobby area. We are researching the necessary items to bring it together.

Thanks for the great review and we look forward to your next visit.

This is a classic locally owned Maine motel (formerly the Whispering Pines). The rooms are all "rustic" to a degree but the bathrooms are modern and up to date. They have good wireless internet and a very clean on site laundromat. The Inn is right on Wilson Lake and is removed from US Rt. 2 so it is peaceful and quiet. The desk staff is courteous and responsive. I have stayed there a dozen times over the years and have never had a bad experience. Definitely check this one out.
