This place is gorgeous and the owners are so sweet, accommodating, and all-around darling. The area around the hotel is beyond beautiful, even (and especially, for me) when it gets misty in the evenings. The decor is interesting and pretty, and it's perfectly matched with the views from each room (of course we peeked into the open rooms, we're only...

This is a lovely setting with a great view of the water from the veranda and excellent access both to a beach and to Clark Island. Craignair also features a bar and restaurant with excellent food, menu and service. The rooms were clean and quiet and we slept well. The proprietors, Joanne and Michael, very kindly offered to drive my...

The Craignair Inn is a hidden gem! The innkeepers Michael and Joanne were so exceedingly nice and caring and willing to help with anything my boyfriend and I needed. The room we stayed in had a terrific view of the waterfront and when the sun set, we couldn't take enough pictures. It was a perfect room for two; bathroom and...

My family and I stayed for two nights before going to Rockland for a windjammer cruise and we loved it. I stayed with my husband and two children in the Vestry while my husband's parents stayed in the main building. My children LOVED the Vestry room with a twin bed for each of them, and claimed that the beds were...

I was very disappointed in this inn. No wifi, Spartan room like a cheap motel except for price, very little help with local attractions, not warm and welcoming for inn of supposedly this calibre, and did not replace damp towels. We stayed in inns in Portland and Bar Harbor that were less expensive and of much higher calibre, This could...

Thank you for writing. It's upsetting to hear of your disappointment. We do have wi-fi here at the Inn and make a point to help all of our guests become familiar with the local area. We replace towels that are left on the floor or are requested to be changed, as we are eco-friendly and try not to use more...

I had a great French Immersion weekend at the Craignair. Joanne was a gracious and attentive host. All meals were top rate and the selected wines were flavorful and well-paired with the meals.

My wife and I spent the weekend at the Craignair for our 4th anniversary. We had gotten a great Groupon rate, and were excited to spend our vacation on the ocean.

My wife and I were looking for something simple in order to get away for the week. We live relatively close by but would imagine that coming from the nearest airport would be comparable.
