The Craignair Inn is situated on a quiet spot overlooking the tidal flats and Clark Island. The Inn is in beautiful condition and clearly the owners, Joanne and Michael, take great care to keep it that way. The rooms are well appointed. Ours had a wonderful view and I expect most rooms are similar. There are large porches perfect for...

I'm from the UK so I can only judge this establishment by my experience of UK and European hotels and B&Bs. We paid top dollar for our room compared with anywhere I have stayed ever for the level of comfort and amenities on offer but we did stay over Labour Day so a high season rate. The rooms were comfortable...

Thank you for taking time to leave your review of Craignair Inn. I'm sorry there wasn't better communication regarding many of the points you made. I would have been happy to discuss them, given the opportunity. US Cellular and Verizon are the only cell service providers that work in the area so we do have a clearly marked cell phone...

Joanne and Michael, thank you for a perfect introduction to Maine hospitality with class and taste! Your house was so quaint and warm, with a great atmosphere. When I walked in to the dining room late in the evening to hear Big Band music, it was so perfect! The restaurant meals as well as the 'breakfast' portion of the B&B...

We came here for our anniversary meal. We decided to stay up in the midcoast for a week as a change of pace. Our friends recommended the Craignair Inn for dinner. We called for reservations and they were able to get us a table on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. The waitress was very helpful, and we started off...

In spite of a foggy evening, there was NO DAMPER on the welcome feeling of the dining hall and staff at "The Inn". We all enjoyed delicious meals ranging from vegetarian for one of our party, to seafood for our guests "from away", while I loved the steak Au Poivre. Save some room for the blueberry pie with ice cream!!!!!...

The most beautiful peaceful location. All of the kids had a great time playing together. The views are breathtaking. We loved staying the in Vestry, it was very intimate and private.

The Craignair Inn is a wonderful place from which to explore the incomparable beauty of Maine's coastal culture. The innkeepers provide a comfortable and relaxed environment. The scent of homemade muffins waft into room before heading down to a homemade healthy breakfast! Thank you for a wonderful visit! We will return.

We have stayed here two summers now and loved it both times. The rooms are so cute and very comfortable. The hosts are super friendly and welcoming. Our son talks about Mimi, their dog, all year long until he gets to see her again. We will definitely visit again next year!

We stay here once or twice a year and have done so for over twenty years. Joanne and Michael are the current owners and they've improved the place every year, a ton of work and love invested. The Inn isn't perfect, but close. It may perhaps be perfect when you factor in the setting. Clark Island is off the beaten...

I spent 3 nights here, and found the hosts to be warm, knowledgeable and welcoming. The food was great, and the location allows for both a quiet sojourn and a basis for exploring the marvelous midcoast area from Pemaquid to Rockport and beyond. Unreservedly recommended.
