This bed and breakfast looks lovely. When we tried to register, they only had the two most expensive rooms left. It was a weekend, so that's probably no surprise. Our fault for not planning ahead. Both of the available rooms were over $250 a night. I asked the gentleman providing this information for another recommendation in the area, as we...

A great inn made even better by the staff who are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. This is an old building so some steps are steep but we were helped with luggage. An attractive buffet of horsdoeuvres is served at 6 nightly. These were delicious. A breakfast is served daily in an attractive dining...

My wife and I just spent two evenings at the inn. Our stay in the Blue Hill area was enhanced by our choice of this inn. Duncan and Chris were perfect hosts and helped make our stay there memorable. Anyone thinking about staying at this inn should have no reservations about doing so.

I have traveled a lot, domestically and internationally. This is the first time I've ever felt compelled to leave a review! Duncan and the staff at Blue Hill Inn have much to be proud of. Accommodations are great, food superb, but the service is EXCEPTIONAL! Enjoy your stay, you'll want to write a review!

My wife and I recently stayed at Blue Hill Inn while on a trip through the Bar Harbor area of Maine. Blue Hill Inn is a wonderful, historic Inn which has been maintained in excellent condition and provides travellers with a welcoming and comfortable stay in this pretty part of Maine. The Innkeeper, Duncan Hamilton, was very pleasant, welcoming and...

We stayed in room 8 for 4 nights. We found the room charming and the bed really comfy. My husband is missing the wonderful pillows! I believe room 8 is above the kitchen but unlike the previous review from Sleepless in Blueberryland we had no problem with noise or smells. I did get a whiff of coffee first thing in...

It is terribly unfair to give this quaint and delightful inn a poor rating, so we won`t. It`s just that we slept very badly due to the room being situated above the kitchen or very near to it, so that even with windows closed and curtains drawn, dinner smells permeated the room throughout the night. And just around 5 AM,...

It would be difficult to overstate how delightful it is to stay here. The inn is authentically historic, unlike those places that call themselves "historic" but have been gutted to accommodate cathedral ceilings & large-screen TVs. At the Blue Hill Inn you'll find wide, pumpkin-pine floors, antiques, & period decor, along with up-to-date bathrooms & speedy wi-fi. But it's the...

We had another wonderful few days at the inn, which is now in good hands with Duncan and Chris. We stayed in the small cape house suite with its comfy bed and a tv to keep up with Olympics. The sumptuous breakfasts fortified us for full days of hiking and visiting with friends and family. Thanks!
