The owner and host Greg Noyes was a warm host, outstanding cook, and had a wealth of knowledge about Maine and southern Canada. Each morning we were greeted with fresh coffee, gourmet breakfasts, and lively conversation about the history and culture of the area. He made excellent suggestions about day trips and restaurants. His home was exquisitely furnished in Victorian period antiques. The B & B could not have been better, nor could the host! Bring your passports!
The Kilby House is very comfortable, located right in town, and meticulously clean. Greg, the innkeeper, knows the area well and is a brilliant resource for travelers. Eastport and the Kilby House are ideal for visitors seeking a quiet, relaxing getaway. If one requires nightlife, fabulous restaurants, extensive shopping, and huge rooms with gigantic baths, then one should look elsewhere, far away. Greg offers a warm welcome, thoughtful conversation, and no shortage of handy information. He knows how to make real tea. Eastport has lovely gardens, some wildly overgrown, an active waterfront, a few very nice shops, long walks, and a spectacular profusion of lupine in the middle of June. And the not-to-be-missed WaCo Diner. Relax. Stay at the Kilby House.
We rarely do anything special for new year's eve, more often preferring to stay quietly at home, but this year was different. We decided to live life on the edge and travel to Eastport, ME to ring in the new year. We were totally fortunate to find the Kilby House Inn and to meet the owner, Greg who has a natural ability to make folks feel welcome. Greg has done a wonderful job of furnishing his home and guest rooms. We discovered that at least 5 other people made Eastport and the Kilby House their destination for New Year's Eve, and it was a delight to meet each of them. We very much appreciate that Greg takes covid precautions seriously. This made us feel very relaxed. We will head back this way again soon and make the Kilby House Inn our base as we explore the natural beauty of the surrounding area. Thanks to Greg for creating a positive first impression of Eastport!…
I spent 4 nights at the Kilby House Inn and wish I could have stayed longer. Greg has created charming inn. The breakfasts he prepared were wonderful. He also facilitated conversations among the guests both at breakfast and at the end of the day as we returned from our individual adventures. For me, returning each evening was like coming home. My stay there was the highlight of my 10 days in Maine.
Greg was the most engaging, helpful, and interesting host we've ever had the pleasure to experience at a B&B. He has created a charming house, filled with beautiful antique furniture, fine art, and interesting books. Our elegantly appointed bedroom was comfortable and had a clean and spacious bathroom. And Greg prepared and served the house guests delicious, filling breakfasts. But what makes the Kilby House most remarkable is Greg. He was eager to sit and chat with us, and his stories--about Eastport, the Kilby House, his lifetime of experiences--created a very welcoming and comfortable home-like atmosphere. The Kilby House is the place to stay if you come to the Eastport area.
Traveling from NC to East Port, ME our 3 night stay landed us at the lovely, historic Kilby House. Our room was clean, quiet, private, and comfortable. We really enjoyed the wonderful breakfast that Greg prepared each morning. All of the other guests that we encountered were very pleasant, we also enjoyed the morning conversations over breakfast that helped prepare us for each days adventure along the many local costal trails. The Kilby House is located a minutes walk from everything in the main business district. Views of the early morning sunrise over the bay are breathtaking. We can’t wait to plan our next trip which will include another stay at The Kilby House.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Greg at the Kilby House. My wife and I spent 3 nights there during our 10 day vacation in New England. We enjoyed a whale-watching tour, an amazingly scenic hike along the rocky coastline and cliffs surrounding the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, and the most delicious “sandwiches” (Basil Crab and the Bahn Mi slow-cooked pork loin) we’ve ever eaten at the newly opened Bocephus “sandwich shop”. To be sure, Eastport is no Bar Harbor - and that was fine with us. If you’re looking to relax and enjoy the unique natural environment of Coastal Maine - without the crowds - Eastport is the place. Hopefully, the Canadian border will also be open soon, which would add another easy day-excursion opportunity. The Kilby House itself turned out to be so much more than simply the place we slept and ate breakfast. It was a true home-base where we felt welcome. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Greg’s breakfasts were excellent! Sitting around the table and enjoying conversation with Greg and the other guests was something we looked forward to each day. We would definitely stay there again.

Hard to believe that host Greg has been doing this for 30 years. We felt like we were his first and favorite guests. Beautiful Victorian home with period antiques and ambiance. We enjoyed a superb breakfast and intelligent conversation.
We enjoyed our stay at the Kilby House Inn. We had a quiet night’s rest and a delicious breakfast. Our room was really clean and well put together, filled with interesting pieces of furniture. In fact the common areas are also filled with interesting and exquisite furniture and woodwork. The Inn keeper is a fantastic gentleman who was very gracious and helpful in recommending places to visit and restaurants to go to eat. I will definitely bring my wife back to Eastport and will be staying here again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our four-night stay at the Kilby House Inn and were grateful to Gregg for making us feel comfortable as well as safe during this summer of COVID-19. On two of our four nights there, we were the only guests. On the other two nights, there was one other couple. Gregg seated each couple at opposite sides of the dining room for breakfast. Everyone wore masks at appropriate times, and Gregg handled everything professionally. Breakfasts were beautiful and delicious. Decor throughout the inn is interesting and tasteful. Lots to read, and always lots to talk about with Gregg.
