Arrived on the ferry from Boothbay and the hotel had folks on the dock to bring your bags up. We walked up the hill, all of a hundred yards and checked in. They very graciously allowed us an early check in and free run of the entire property. Our room was on the first floor and had a magnificent view...

What a wonderful little island. The Island Inn is cozy and comfortable. The restaurant is outstanding with great entrees and fun, attentive exchange students providing the service. Will definitely head back there in the future.

When you go to Monhegan Island, you'll be transported to almost a Cornwall-like setting. Stunning! The Island Inn is a beautiful place with great rooms. The food that is served is some of the best we have had in our Maine Travels. Sitting on the front porch in the rocking chairs or relaxing in the Adirondack chairs, the scenery is...

We went for a day trip to Monhegan Island. It-was-hot-and-humid... After a visit of the Island, I wanted nothing but the best! My feet were sore, I was ready to kill for a fresh beverage, I'm sure steam was coming out of my ears!!! And we went to the Inn... right away, the waiter filled up our glasses with iced...

This was a great stay! Our first time to Mohegan and it was a blast. There were a few things that could have been different or addressed but overall it was a great stay. Some of the highlights of the hotel is the porch, the lobby, and the food. The porch is beautiful with harbor views, the lobby is quaint...

My husband and I stayed at The Island Inn during the last couple of nights of our honeymoon. There really aren't any words to describe how perfect The Island Inn is. From the time I called to make a reservation, only a couple of weeks before we actually wanted to stay, and the staff did everything they could to get...

The Island Inn is on Monhegan Island. It has been serving guests since 1907 and is amazing. The location is first rate. The service is stellar. The food is wonderful. It is a BYOB establishment so the wine is of your own choosing. Mine at dinner last night was only fair but that was my fault since I bought it...

I went here for a special dinner. It is a BYO place but the food was really delicious. It is hard but essential to be organized on an island but the chef made great food. I had the stew which was filled with seafood and very refined. Everyone loved what they ordered. The setting overlooking the harbor was beautiful.

I spent 8 days at the Island Inn in the beginning of June and went back for 2 more mid-June! In a word...superb. Michael and Jaye have perfected the formula. From the quaint room, to the amazing breakfast buffet and wonderful dinners - no detail was overlooked. The service was friendly and I left feeling like I was part of...

Wife and I took the 7am ferry from Port Cylde. Missed breakfast at the port and that was a good thing. Arriving at the island the Barnacle only served pastries.
