We stayed here after a day at Acadia National Park. We arrived at night and left the next morning, which we really regretted, because the most amazing thing about this inn is its amazing ocean view. We booked two rooms: my husband and I had the Theoline room, and my in-laws were upstairs in the Silver Spray suite. Even though our room downstairs was smaller, we had the most stunning picture window to make up for it. The moment you open your eyes in the morning, you are greeted by a brilliant expanse of blue ocean. This place oozed character, and we loved it! Normally, I'm not into flowery wall paper or creaky floorboards, but in this case, it's part of the experience. It's a throwback to the days of quiet, family owned sea-side joints. In the evenings, it's pitch black and very peaceful. You can hear the ocean and look at the stars. There are plenty of beautiful and curious little antiques in the public spaces to engross a traveler for hours, such as the telescope, the china collection, and the old books. My in-laws were a little creeped out by the mannequins in the sitting room of the Silver Spray suite... but they got used to it :) The breakfast in the morning was great--we took ours and had it outside, next to the ocean. My only complaint was the water pressure in our bathroom; it was a little on the light side. Overall, one of the most unique places I've ever stayed in. Definitely would recommend!
