Spent two nights for a husband/wife getaway. Staff was superb and the grounds are beautiful. Not your cookie cutter hotel layout, it has that wonderful New England charm and character. It's wonderful to walk around Freeport with all the shopping available. Comfortable King Bed, loved the fluffy robes, and the turn down service was nice! Great breakfast also! Two items that took away from an 'excellent' rating: two person jacuzzi tub did not live up to what we paid extra for. I'd say it's more of a 'two short person tub or one tall person'. We got laughing thinking about a couple we know who are both about 6 feet tall - would NOT work for them! We were hoping to hang out at the Broad Arrow Tavern to watch our favorite team in the playoffs but there were only a few chairs in front of the bar w/ the TV. Ended up going to Gritty's for the game. But the food was great and the overall stay was wonderful. We would return for sure.

It was our anniversary and they went out of their way to make sure every moment was magical. We checked into our room, and to our amazement, they surprised us with a gorgeous complimentary cheese & fruit plate with a beautiful, warm HANDWRITTEN notecard from the owners.

We were in room 222 which had a huge king bed, flat screen TV, bureau & a wood-burning fireplace. Yes - an actual wood-burning fireplace. Good-sized jacuzzi tub/shower, pedestal sink, toilet and big fluffy towels in a good sized bathroom. Big comfy robes were provided as well. Very quiet at night.

We had dinner later that night at the Black Arrow Tavern which is located right on the bottom floor of The Harraseeket. Wide variety of menu options. Casual atmosphere. Beautiful fireplace. I had the 1/2 chicken dinner and my husband had the prime rib special. Both dinners were absolutely delicious. They are really proud of their support of local farms & fishermen and it shows. Sheila was our waitress and she was absolutely amazing. We never wanted for anything. Impeccable service.

When we got back to our room, they had turned down the bed, left these adorable little wrapped starfish chocolates on the pillow, and replenished the ice in the wine bucket. We felt so spoiled!

Breakfast buffet the next morning was hot, fresh, delicious & included in the room rate. Again - everything was fresh & locally grown. No powdered eggs here. We got there towards the tail end and everything was still so hot & fresh. Loved it.

The Harraseeket Inn gave us an incredible anniversary experience we will never forget. You have to try this place. It's amazing.

We just returned from a night,s stay in one of the townhouse rooms with our family. The room,s were dated and overcrowded with large outdated furniture, the mattress was so old and out of shape my back still hurts, and the smell in the rooms was funky. The pull out sofa was not fit for anyone to sleep on,thank goodness we brought a blow up mattress. Nothing at the Breakfast buffet was children oriented. The staff was very friendly, and I will say staying at the town house with the kid,s was very relaxing having the outdoor play area to yourself. The kid,s had a lot of fun in the pool .

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We take all complaints very seriously and your comments are being reviewed among our staff members. We use Serta Presidential pillow top mattresses in our rooms and our head housekeeper is on a mission to find the mattress that prevented you from getting the good nights sleep you (and every guest) deserves. We'd love to hear from you regarding what we could add to our breakfast buffet to make it more fun for the kids. We want everyone to have a good experience when they're on vacation, especially our littlest guests. When they're happy, the parents are happy! Thank you again for your input and we hope you give us another try.

We spent two nights here for my wide's birthday. We had a beautiful king room with a double jacuzzi. We thought it was great until we saw discolored water in the tub. It turns out the city was flushing hydrants. The staff and general manager were wonderful and did everything they could by moving our room to avoid this problem. In fact the general manager met with us personally and arranged for our final room change. He could not have been nicer. We had a couple of real nice dinners at the inn as well as two wonderful breakfasts. We shopped downtown until we could not walk anymore and returned each day for afternoon tea which featured fruits, cheeses, cookies, brownies and of course tea. It was an interesting start, but the two days were very enjoyable and relaxing. We have been here several times over the years and will continue to return. Kudos to the staff at Harraseeket! ! Keep up the good work! If you are looking for a relaxing break and want to shop until you drop, come to the Harraseeket.

We're so glad your stay ended on a good note, and very sorry that the town chose that particular day to flush the hydrants. We typically get same-day notice from the town, which is barely enough time to warn our laundry staff NOT to run any linens through the wash. We thank you for your loyal patronage and for taking the time to post your wonderful review and we hope to see you again soon!

If life or business takes you toward Freeport, Maine, you should stay at the Harraseeket Inn. It's a lovely Inn, in the grand traditions of New England – in both design and atmosphere. The Broad Arrow tavern, located on the premises, offers excellent casual food. It's a great place to relax after a hard day of shopping at the local factory outlets. And don't forget LL Bean. It's less then a five minute walk. A very good buffet breakfast is included in the room rate. In fact, it's the best included breakfast I have had anywhere during my travels. There is also an afternoon tea – very civilized. Also included. The Inn has recently added an outside fire pit, which is a great place to meet fellow travellers for casual conversation over marsh mellows. I have stayed at the Harraseeket half a dozen times over the past three years and have always been delighted.

Thank you for a wonderful review, you made our day! We're glad you were able to take advantage of Freeport in the off-season, when the sales are big and the crowds are small. We look forward to hosting you again and hope you have a great spring!
