Craignair Inn at Clark Island
Ranked #1 of 2 Spruce Head B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 September 2011

We've stayed in other b&b's in the area on our biannual trips up to Bar Harbor from the Midwest. This place is very picturesque and charming. Joanne and Michael are laid back and friendly and they are dog friendly! And of course, not to go unmentioned was the unbelievable seafood a la grecque on the dinner menu..fantastic! It's a bit secluded which enhances the feel of the b&b atmosphere. Can't go wrong with this place!

We spent two nights at the Craignair, it was our first time there, and we literally fell in love with this place! We stayed in the older inn, the one closer to the water. The inn is beautiful and absolutely full of charm and nice details (without being an overbearing collection of dusty bric a bracs). Our room was very clean, nicely appointed, had a spotless bathroom and a comfortable bed, but the absolute winner was the view. We could catch both sunrise and sunset from our windows, it was quite spectacular.
The dining room is welcoming, spotless, charming and has beautiful views of the sea and the island.
Breakfast was very good, there was only one option (which was fine with us), but it was very well prepared and abundant. We also had dinner at the Craignair, which was fine, but not as good as breakfast.
The owner was very friendly and helpful and she seemed to be constantly at work to keep the inn clean and in great shape.
The grounds are beautiful, with nice chairs to watch the most perfect sunset on earth!
The location is simply fantastic, tucked away in a peaceful corner of coastal Maine! From the Inn, you can take beautiful walks to Clark Island, or drive to Port Clyde, a place we really loved because it is pretty but also authentic, with its fishing boats. We once dined at Miller lobster shack, a short drive from the Inn. Lobsters were good but expensive, but the location and view was pretty spectacular!
The Craignair has a unique rustic old Maine charm and is the perfect location for families, couples, solo travelers. We will definitely go there again and again and AGAIN!

The Craignair Inn is in a beautiful location right on the water. Spectacular views. The rooms are warm, welcoming and spotless! We had both breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and each was better than the previous. Without question the best salmon I've ever had. Further stated, I'm not a fan of blueberry muffins, HOWEVER, I could have eaten a dozen of the freshly baked ones we had as part of our breakfast.

I can't find one single negative thing to say about the Craignair...it's a wonderful place to visit and I can't wait till I can go back again. Michael, Joanne, Simon and Mimi become part of your family...and Chris and Lisa already are :)

We stayed at the Craignair Inn for three nights and had a blast! Our first night we spent watching the sun go down with views of the Atlantic and views of Clark Island while having drinks on a lovely grass lawn. We then had dinner which was hard to chose from all the choices of seafood and steak. The mussels were fantastic and fresh. Our room had two windows with views out to the ocean and a bathroom that was light and airy with another window. Breakfast was great and there were homemade blueberry muffins, crepes and fresh fruit. Mike and Joanne, the innkeepers, are friendly and there is a casual home feel to the inn. The location is also great. It is just enough off the beaten bath that you feel like you have gotten away, but within 45 minutes there are two towns, Rockland and Camden, with lots of shops, restaurants and activities. The water is easily accessible for kayaks and lots of walking trails right from the inn. Our stay was great and memorable and we will definitely be back!

We stayed at the Craignair Inn with friends whilst travelling to Maine for a 50th birthday party. We found the location of the property was great but the rooms are tired, in need of an upgrade and felt damp. Breakfasts were monotonous and if you don’t like eggs then you’re going to be hungry. That said, the evening meals were good even if the service was slow. The restaurant is open to people who aren’t staying at the Inn and there isn’t really any priority given to guests. Overall it was pretty average.

Room Tip: We stayed in the annex with nice views to the bay and a small terrace.
