Cohill's Inn
Ranked #5 of 8 Lubec B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 July 2012

We are traveling for fun and made reservations at the Cohills Inn. The other Inn we wanted was booked up. We stayed in the Mulholland Room which had a fantastic view of the seals and sea gulls on the Bay of Fundy. That alone almost made it the perfect place to stay. However, the room itself is very small. There is no place to put your stuff and being on a 4 week trip, we had a lot of stuff. The quilt on the bed smelled musty. The bed was comfortable and sleeping with the window open was nice. However, the bright lamp outside shined into our room all night. We learned to use a cloth over our eyes to keep the light out of our eyes. The curtains barely cover the window and do NOT block out the light. The bathroom was tiny as was the shower which we are accustomed to in Europe but the shower head is in need of cleaning so the spray is not uniform. Plus it hits those of us who are short right in the face. A hand held shower may have resolved this issue. The toilet lid was loose, partially broken so we had to straighten the seat before we used it so we would slide over.

Jack himself is very nice and friendly. Maid service was very good and fresh towels were delivered daily. If we needed ice, we went downstairs to the bar and Jack gladly filled up our ice bucket.

The best part is that the Irish Pub is downstairs and had Guinness Stout on tap. My husband was in heaven. The food in the Inn was wonderful. I had the Portabello Sandwich which exceeded my expectations. Terrific food!

I probably would never stay here again but the experience has left a wonderful memory of good times. Just not the shower, could hardly wait to get to a real hotel with a good shower. I just didn't feel clean. Parking is very limited which can make loading and unloading a problem. Consider it camping indoors.

My wife and I selected Cohill's from about 5 places that are available in Lubec, and there is no doubt, we selected the best one. (we had not been to Lubec and knew nothing about the motels, and B&Bs.) Cohill's overlooks the bay, is close to the water, and has a very popular restaurant.

The owner is very helpful and friendly. We had the Campabello room with a king bed - very comfortable. The building and room are not fancy, but was more than adequate for our stay. We had dinner - starting with a couple of draft beers (decent selection). Beer and food were very good and reasonably priced.

Cohill's has a limited breakfast but it was adequate. Coffee was excellent.

We went to Lubec to visit the Roosevelt cottage but wished we had stayed for another few days as Lubec is a quaint, peaceful village. The air was cool and crisp. Very relaxing. Both my wife and I and another couple thought that Lubec reminded us of Port Wenn (from Doc Martin).

We would stay at Cohill's again.

This inn had a very friendly staff; they were willing to help. There are no elevators but only 2 floors so not too many steps. The room was small because the queen bed took up most of the room, but it was clean. Take your own toiletries because all they give you is soap (no shampoo, facial tissues, etc.). Also, breakfast is free but only 3 types of dry cereal, bananas, hard boiled eggs English muffins, OJ, and yogurt. They have a restaurant in the inn. It's pricey, but the food is great.

We stayed at Cohill's last month and enjoyed our stay so much. The staff were all friendly and informative. Our room overlooked an inlet where we could watch herons and harbor seals at low tide....fabulous! Breakfast in the pub was basic, but substantial, and the coffee was outstanding! We ate 2 dinners in the pub and they were both delicious. I've recommended Cohill's to a friend who plans on visiting Maine soon. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: It seems all rooms have a lovely view of something. We chose a room with a king bed.

After a 6 hour drive I was ready for a glass of wine and some food. Driving down this dark lonely road from US 1 I would never have guessed that I would find an oaisis!
A darling B&B or Inn don't know how it's classified but terriffic food, wonderful hosts, warm cozy dining room, delightful room overlooking the bay, I could not believe my luck!
The restaurant is farm to table
If you can find this one go, enjoy the little quaint town, the delightful restaurant and be happy you found it too!

Room Tip: A bit hard to find but worth the search

Great Place! The owner greets you by name, and will be happy to accomodate any requests; stay on an upper floor and have stunning views of the Bay of Funday, and the lighthouse...The place to see there is Campobello Island which is a 2 minute drive... Of course it is in Canada so bring a passport, and plenty of time to explore this Island.... No wonder why FDR loved this island. Cohills is clean, reasonable, and with a friendly staff... If you want a limited menu sit out on the upper deck, if you forget a blanket the friendly bartender will bring one if you are chilly. Enjoy!

I went to Cohill's with my family for an escape from life for a week. I can't even begin to explain how pleasant my experience was. The owner, Jack, provided us with anything we needed to know about Lubec, complete with a list of all the worthwhile things to see during our stay. Everyone there was very happy and helpful(which can be rare these days), and did anything they could to accommodate our needs. While we kayaked and whale watched during the day, we were always excited to come back and have a wonderful and fresh meal by night. We found a lot of the food in Lubec to be fried, so it was nice to have organic, tasty options that never disappointed...anything you order will be KILLER, even the salads are overflowing with flavor(as hard as that is to believe, trust me!). Seeing the panoramic view of the Bay of Fundy was a pleasant experience, especially when waking up to it in our room with the seals playing in the water every morning.
Lubec has great spirit, and provided us with a much needed vacation from the chaos of everyday life. Cohill's was a large portion of why we enjoyed ourselves so much, I would recommend this gem to anyone!
