“Highly Recommended - Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

We spent 5 nights in early July at the Inn and can't wait to return. We can't say enough about the Moosehead Lake area and this Inn in particular. Ruth and Dan are wonderful hosts who are always available when needed but never overbearing. The Inn is immaculate, comfortable and offers unbelievable views of Moosehead Lake and the mountains beyond. Breakfasts were creative, filling and delicious. When we mentioned that my husband didn't like certain foods they were more than happy to accomodate. We enjoyed Sunday Night pizza night at the Inn and also had an outstanding 5 course dinner on Saturday night. We spent many days hiking and exploring the area and Ruth happily provided us with water bottles and snacks. The only thing we'd change about the Inn is the distance from our house - we'd return multiple times throughout the year if it was closer!

Do not bypass this property! Blair Hill Inn was without a doubt the absolute highlight of our 18 day trip through Maine! We arrived early in the day, but Ruth greeted us like long lost cousins, showed us our room and the public part of the house and sent us out for a hike with great directions and a cool beverage. Granted this property costs more for one night than any 3 nights of other accommodations combined, but it was definitely worth the splurge! We were in room #2 with windows on two sides and a shower worthy of Architectural Digest mention. Much has been said of the location, so I will only concur. Much has been said about the cuisine – to which I will also concur. Much has also been said about the hospitality – to which I will wholeheartedly enthusiastically concur. To Cordelia, Milo, Maxie, Belle, Dan and especially Ruth, we send out the fondest thanks, the warmest of memories, and our highest possible kudos for a stay that will be the mark by which we measure all future stays anywhere the road takes us. Woe is in store for the next few places we visit – this from someone who spends an average of 130+/- nights a year in “hotels” of one type or another.

Room Tip: Saw 5 of the rooms. All looked nice. #1 might be the biggest. #2 suited us just fine with good vi...

We stayed here for a wedding (and we did not pay for it either!). What a beautiful home and the view is fantastic overlooking Moosehead Lake. The innkeepers really know how to greet and welcome people with hospitality and style. The suite was comfortable and plush. The breakfasts were delicious. Everything was as you would expect in such an expensive and distinguished inn.

Room Tip: Any room is great at the Blair Hill Inn!

This was a splurge for me. I've always wanted to stay in the type of B & B that you see in the movies and thought this met the bill. It did not disappoint. This was the second time I've visited Greenville, specifically to look for and photograph moose. There is a great moose population there. Ruth and Dan were very welcoming hosts and I can't say anything negative about them or the place. The grounds are beautiful. The gourmet breakfasts were amazing. The room, room 8, was so comfy that I really would've been perfectly fine never leaving it. The chairs by the window with the view of the lake and the easy access to the top balcony were just awesome. One day we told Ruth were were going hiking and she packed a free little bag for us with two granola bars and an orange. She also offered bottled water. How thoughtful. This place was just perfect and I can't wait to go back. I would go to Greenville just to stay in this place!

Room Tip: Room 8 is the only room with more than one bed, so it was perfect for me and a friend. All of the r...

Although we own a lakeside house on Moosehead Lake that continues to give us supreme pleasure after 11 consecutive years, the Blair Hill Inn continues to be the high point of every visit. The walk from the bar out onto the wraparound porch must be akin to what a caterpillar feels when it emerges as a butterfly: you literally feel transported to a different plane of being by the sheer immensity and Alfred Bierstadt 270-degree American Romantic view. I've never been to another place in the US that offers you the same degree of head rush. And to top it off, a superb menu of locally and regionally sourced fare (including Stutzman's Farms in Sangerville, also one of my favorite corners on the planet Earth) and a gorgeous wine list. And Ruth and Dan, of course. It's inconceivable how one could miss it if you're traveling within 100 miles of Moosehead Lake.
