Monhegan Island Inn – The Quieter Side of Maine

Relax and Eat Lobster!

Situated high on a bluff overlooking the west side of Monhegan Harbor, the Monhegan Island Inn is is perfect place to experience the quieter, more tranquil side of Maine.  Once you enter this charming property, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time.  Dating back to early 1800’s with extensive renovations taking place over the years, the Inn retains some of its original structure and oak furnishings for guests to appreciate and enjoy!

Just as you’d expect from an elegantly appointed inn situated on a rustic island 10 miles from the coast of Maine, the dining is ocean-inspired featuring delicious mouth-watering lobster rolls and other fresh, local lobster and seafood dishes.  As you visit The Barnacle, the inn’s casual eatery located at the end of wharf, look for the lobster buoys that date back to the early 1900’s.

Why we love it: Here you can disconnect from the rest of the world. No air-conditioning, no electricity for hair dryers and limited internet service.   It’s pure Maine.
