Lovely inn and restaurant from another time

Reviewed 27 september, 2022

Quick summary: lovely inn from another time with, yes, rooms on the small side, as they made them back then. Very comfortable bed; excellent housekeeping. Friendly, professional service throughout. Prices on the high side, reflecting the challenge of supplying a nice hotel on an island. We stayed a couple of nights as we visit with Maine-based friends every year and try to chose a different island experience. This year it was Chebeague's turn. First, we appreciated being met at the dock by the inn's shuttle. While not a far walking distance, it's nice not to have to tote your luggage. The procedure for parking and getting the ferry to the island works very well. We stayed in room 212, which has an upcharge for a private bath. Our friends stayed in a room where the bath was shared. Both bathrooms were fine - neat and clean. The room (212) itself was a corner room, with windows on two sides. This was useful in that we stayed in early August when it was deathly hot and humid (high 90's) on the mainland. To be honest, I was skeptical about the "cool island breezes" as I've heard that about older hotels without AC, and was sometimes disappointed in past years at other island hotels with only a fan. This room was VERY comfortable - it felt like a miracle as a relief from the mainland heat. I can't speak for everyone's experience, but really - this room and the public rooms were fine. Our room has a very comfortable queen bed with quality linens and pillows. Instead of a closet, an armoire stored your things. There is real personality in the room -- charming antique nightstands, lamps, two sitting chairs, and a table. No TV, to maintain the peaceful atmosphere of an older hotel. The wifi worked fairly well, but I don't expect much of wifi on the islands. The bathroom had a tiled shower, and shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion were provided. There is a fan if needed, but glory be! Windows that open to a nice breeze! Excellent housekeeping. There is a VERY good on-site restaurant where we ate all meals (there isn't much else on Chebeague.) All was very tasty and well-prepared - the four of us sampled a wide variety from the menu. Staff were friendly and professional. Dining can also be outside on veranda, which is a nice option. The public rooms are also warm and welcoming - like being in a large family living room. We mostly walked around the island, sat for a while on the beach. My husband took a bike one day to do some photographing. There is an interesting local history museum that is mostly a collection of photos of island residents, but it is interesting in its own right. The inn was built for another time, and you find that charming and roll with it, or not. Given my experience with other hotels on islands off the coast of Maine, this one sets a wonderful standard of comfortable rooms, very good housekeeping, no musty smells, very good dining, etc. Wifi on the islands is what it is. Again, compared to some other island hotels, the breeze the few days we were here did a great job of cooling you off, when I knew the mainland was still stifling (reports from the Maine-based relatives.) Please also cut the innkeepers a break as everyone in the hospitality industry has had their challenge in staffing up this year. We had a lovely stay with no complaints. Also: there was a wedding when we stayed. It didn't seem to affect the high quality service. Due diligence: it feels like the residents of the island treat the inn as their de facto club house. It wasn't intrusive, but social and convivial. It just seemed like many people knew each other, not just in the wedding party. As for the price - it is on the high side. But the hotel is on a rock in the ocean, trying to maintain a high level of comfort and staffing. To sum: we'd love to come again. We lucked out on the cool breeze situation, and might consider visiting at a time when summer temps are less likely to be oppressive.

shabby

Reviewed 22 august, 2022

Probably the worst hotel that we have stayed in for this price point. A worn and tired 12'X12" room furnished painted all white (floor, ceiling, walls, trim etc.) with a bed (comfortable), an upholstured chair sized for a small child and a box fan. The hotel advertizes "no air conditioning needed" true except for those no breeze nights and the cheap fan (looks like it came from a yard sale) sounds like a B17 revving up for a take off. The hotel is not (and does not mention) that it is not handicap accessible. Climbing the worn carpet stairs was a little rough for two older cardiac patients. The hotel entrance is stark and uninviting. Getting there is also an adventure. Drive to a remote parking lot, get on a bus (with a rude driver that helped no one with their bags) for a drive to the ferry landing for a short run to the island. From there a hotel shuttle carries you to the hotel. Plusses - The hotel staff was outstanding, friendly and professional. Evening dining on the veranda was great as were the sunsets. The island has little to offer other than a 9 hole golf course and a couple of snack bars that were closed. There are some some small beaches but compared to other places they are not much. Bottom line for us - this is an old, outdated hotel trying to survive in an old school niche. Given the cost I would not stay there again.

Reality doesn't match marketing

Reviewed 18 august, 2022

The website markets this wonderful experience but in reality it didn't live up to the hype. There were no lawn games or night time s'mores around an outdoor firepit. I was there for 2 nights and has NO maid service, not even clean towels. The food was mediocre at best - old lobster for lobster sandwich, a ramekin of blueberries, ONE sliced strawberry and 6 grapes for an "Assorted fruit plate", the assorted daily pastry was the same stale apple scone each morning, the blueberry pancakes were not cooked in the middle. The bikes for use were old and broken to the point where we had to call the van to come pick us up. The worst was when I was on the porch and the waiter asked the group on either side of me what they would like from the Sunset Landing (Bar and snacks) and never once asked me if I would like something (I was sitting by myself). There were expectations that were not met - we wanted to go to the beach and asked for towels and chairs and were told they were not available. There were some great staff - Free and Wyatt were the best but sadly, will never go again. So disappointed

My favorite restaurant in Maine.

Reviewed 13 august, 2022

Chef Marsh has transformed the Inn into my favorite restaurant in Maine. Service, food and ambiance are all you could hope for. We have been twice in the past 2 weeks and plan to go at least 2 more times before the summer is over. We went by boat. They picked in their new launch, chauffeured us to the Inn by van and treated us to some of the best meals we've had this year in Maine. Spectacular views ... Highly Recommended

Recently 13 of us had the loveliest time (and food) at the Chebeague Island Inn where the staff where 500% fabulous! I had the mussels . . . do not hesitate to order them! Delicious! What a treat for us to enjoy the Inn's history . . . it's a lovingly restored vintage hotel and restaurant. Highly recommend!
