Pros: Lovely location. Characterful building. Most convivial and helpful host. Excellent staff. Most comfortable beds and charming rooms/decor. Very good food. Value for money. It was so good we stayed an extra night.
Pros: Superb breakfast. Fascinating artifacts in the lounge and throughout. Coffee outside my door in the morning. Restaurant with excellent food & service. Best crab cakes ever.
Cons: The queen mattress.
Pros: The staff are welcoming. The refined and classic decoration of the hotel is very enjoyable. The manager and owner will carry nice conversation with you if you got time. We enjoy the neighborhood special on the menu at the hotel on site restaurant.
Cons: They do not have air conditioner in the room and it is August. However it is still bearable.
Pros: Lovely quiet town
The food was outstanding
Very friendly staff
Really cool bar - loved the bar decor
Cons: Our bed faced a wall with tiny windows on either side
Bathroom was cute but the door didn't really shut
Very Victorian decor - do not care for this prissy faded glory decorating style
Room had mildew odor- possibly from bedding
Depressing colors in bedroom
Seemed like this was a place for a mature crowd
family with older children
Pros: Amazing. Highly recommend it. The staff couldn't be nicer (the owner comes to greet you personally at your arrival). Every detail is thought of (e.g. you have a great living room for reading, great coffee is ready near your room before breakfast, every morning a person is available to give you advice on what to see for free, the breakfast food was amazing quality with great variety, the room was spotless and it had everything we needed, etc etc). Plus the wifi was excellent (which had been a real pain in other Inns I stayed throughout our trip). Just excellent. If you go to Castine you should definitely stay here
Cons: Nothing really. Flawless
Pros: From the friendliness of the staff to the beautiful bedroom overlooking the town our experience at the inn couldn't have been better.
Pros: Top shelf boutique Inn. The owners who have been there for sixteen years strive for excellence in every area.
We dined there two nights and the farm to table menu was splendid. Two thumbs up!!!
Pros: Charming inn. Great breakfast. They have an excellent restaurant open Tues-Sat. Also a jazz band every Turs on the wrap around porch. Owners and staff friendly and helpful.
Cons: Castine is a quaint, quiet town. Would not be to everyones liking.
Pros: Breakfast was delicious! Staff was very gracious! Castine Harbor was pretty.
Cons: The room was on a slant.....no view when I asked for one......the roof or gable intruded into the room (awful) and I almost hit my head on it at night. No town so to speak. Owners were not on property and staff not authorized to move me. WAY OVERPRICED.
Pros: Lovely staff, great food, good conversation, excellent location, pictures of tyrants and kings.
Pros: Very helpful staff/owners. Great knowledge of the area.

Pros: We loved dinner. The best food during our trip in Main, linguine lobster to die for! Jack is an amazing host, great interior designer and gave us perfect tips and suggestion for the continuation of our trip.
Pros: Clean and quaint atmosphere. Breakfast was Excellent, but young serverneeds significant training!
Cons: False advertising about views of water. Not much to do in town.Entire building has settled and therefore the bed, in room was onslant. No A.C. We chose it due to it's water views claims whichwere totally false.
Pros: dinner was outstanding cuisine
Pros: We like the Pentagoet and have stayed there before but it is not 4-star by any means. And there are few overnight options in Castine, so the fact that we have stayed there before is not as telling as it might seem.
The location is an ideal starting point for walking around town. The room was light and clean and the bathroom large. The breakfasts were more than ample and the dinner chef knew what he was doing. Excellent dinner, The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Wi-Fi access free and excellent. Bed linens were of good quality and the bed was comfortable.
Cons: The guest rooms that we saw were tired looking and not particularly well decorated. Even the more thoughtfully thought out common areas the furniture featured tired coverings and toss pillows. In the bedroom, the furniture was plain and for the most part inexpensive and unexceptional. The wall paper was due for an update and art, such as it was, was thoroughly unmemorable. The little things that one might expect from a Select Registry hostelry were absent--robes, turn-down service--etc. as was a unified and appealing décor. The complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres turned out not to be quite complimentary. The inn just wasn't quite up to snuff else I would have given it a higher rating.
Pros: We loved everything. Had we truly understood what this Inn was like, we would have arranged to stay for a few days. Quiet, great for walking, minimal touristy commerce, EXCELLENT FOOD.
