Imagine the best of the old time Catskills - then add the Atlantic ocean; unbeatable view, unhurried atmosphere and unmatched solitude.... (sorry no croquet, or dirty dancing) - It is very clean and well maintained but a bit rustic. This is not a Hilton, squeaky clean, tile and 1200 count sheets type of place. It is clean, recently up-dated VERY...

This was our second stay at the Driftwood Inn. Our first visit 8 years ago was on a whim and we were taken by the stunning location right at land's end. Our room had the most delightful view. This second time we returned on purpose for the reason of location, sea air, and the calming, inviting setting. The Inn is...

We went for a quick visit. All my get -aways have to include a boat trip. We had a narrated ride on Casco Bay out of Portland. After a nice meal at Cook's we were fetched by a congenial driver and delivered to my childhood. Beautiful ledges, a beach, veranda, welcoming rockers, and a superb dining room. This is definately...

This is it. TRUE Maine. Not too far up as to make a Maine trip overwhelming. Just east of Brunswick down a peninsula. The Driftwood Inn is NOT for high maintenance people. It is old-school cottages and shared baths (some have private bath). But you are there for the VIEW! Rocking chairs right on the ocean. Wind down and enjoy...

Just got back from a stay at the Driftwood Inn over the Labor Day weekend. We had never been to Bailey Island before, but we decided on a whim on Friday to go away for the weekend. The Driftwood Inn was on the ocean, had vacancy, and I was especially excited to see that they advertised a saltwater pool since...

We were fortunate to have a cabin but there are rooms available in the main buildings. The rooms are for sleeping only but there is ample public sitting area as to make it comfortable. The cabins vary in size but have all you will need ton stay a week or longer. I believe that it is the only place of...

We have been visiting Bailey Island for many years and decided to try a different inn this year. Driftwood Inn is located near the end of the island in a beautiful rocky cove. The inn itself was built in 1905 so we expected it to be rustic, but it could definitely use some updates. The rooms are very small and...

The rooms are rustic, and the focus is on the ocean views. We enjoyed the breakfasts served oceanside, reasonably priced, and just right to get you in the Maine mood. Be sure to visit the Giant's Staircase just down the road.

A few girlfriends and I chose the Driftwood Inn this year for our annual girl-cation. The room was very clean and comfortable for an overnight get-away and the views of the ocean are gorgeous; however, the staff at check in lacked personality and the "salt water pool" is rather a rectangular basin of stagnant, algae filled ocean water. I expected...

Attended a great wedding at the Driftwood Inn. Its great because the owners are flexible and there is accomodation for guests so you don't have to drive anywhere after the party. It is situated smack bang on the water with picturesque Maine coastline all around you. Note this is a rustic inn and not a hotel, so know what to...
