Michael and Joanne were wonderful hosts during my too short stay. The Inn is in a spectacularly beautiful location where sitting on the veranda offered me a place to watch the sunset and sea. My room ( #2) was spacious, spotless, and offered too a spectacular view. I would love to come back and spend some more time here.

Thank you for staying with us and we're so glad you enjoyed room 2..it's on the corner of the building so it has a lovely breeze (no a/c ever required in this room!) and it's got an amazing view! Hope to see you again! ~Joanne and Michael More

Our experience at the inn was great. Located aside Clark Island, scenery was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, our hosts were welcoming and informative. Joanne greeted us at the door, gave us a tour of the inn, and accommodated us in a room request change with little effort. We highly recommend an autumn getaway at the Craignair Inn!

We've stayed at the Craignair because they are an animal friendly Inn. The accommodations are not luxurious. The setting is gorgeous. The dining room where we have dined often is wonderful for dinner. Casual service. Good food, well prepared, varied menu. Don't miss if you are travelling around the coast of ME!

The hosts made us feel very comfortable about traveling with pets. The location was absolutely gorgeous. Our hosts were nice, maybe a little tense. The rooms were spotless and spacious. On the downside, the breakfast was basically the same every day and neither of us liked it. For that much money per night, a varied meal would have been appropriate.... More
