Inn at Sunrise Point
Travel Blogs from Lincolnville
Our last leg of our two-month trip began in Albany, New York. We continued across Interstate 90 into Massachusetts, New Hampshire and finally Maine. While driving the last part of the trip, I wondered how long it would be before I wished I was back on the road, enjoying the sights, sounds and experiencing our great country. But, on our last day, both Dolly and I were glad it was about over. It was rather exciting to cross the river between ...
This is our last day at the RV park, but our first day of sightseeing as part of the SMART Caravan. So we formed up to carpool to the Fort Knox State Historical Site and the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory in Bucksport, ME.
Fort Knox is the original "Fort Knox" although it was never completed. Nearly $1M was spent to build the fort over 25 years. The American Revolution and the War of ...
... freeway"option. After a very frustrating day of travel we arrived in Belfast, Maine. Although we are on Penobscot Bay, it's still the Atlantic. Belfast is a really cute little fishing/resort town. We have a nice motel just outside of town. Since we have no more folkssport walks until Lansing, Michigan, we get to sleep in tomorrow. In the afternoon we'll head up to Bar Harbor to stay for two nights. ...
3, 2, 1 ... Blastoff!!! Today is the day we head west. Ok, we have to go west from here to get anywhere.
The weather is NOT in our favor. Rain all day and cold - all up and down the eastern part of the country. We were toying with the idea of heading to South Carolina, maybe even Florida then heading seriously west but we are going to make our decision later as we work our way south.
Yesterday was packing day and while everything ...

Back to the MH for a quick rest in the sun then go for a 1.75 hr hike up the top of Mt Megunticook (1,300) ft and back. This is basically a Grouse ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn at Sunrise Point Lincolnville
My husband and I stayed here just after Columbus Day Weekend. It is a few miles north of Camden. We stayed in the EB White room. After viewing the pictures, we thought we were going to have this big beautiful room. The room was beautiful but the queen bed practically filled it up. the grounds were beautiful and the food was quite good for breakfast. Over all we would stay here again but hopefully at a less expensive rate!
Incredible Oceanfront getaway
This is very special Inn! You are warmly welcomed upon your arrival into a sunny living room area with the beautiful porch fronting the lawn and ocean. The view is spectacular and the feeling at the Inn is very relaxing and peaceful.
Coffee is always available during the day along with homemade cookies. The accommodations are beautiful. Both times that I have stayed here have been in the little cottages. Each had a fire
place, very pretty sitting area, and very spacious bathroom.
The hospitality has been warm and gracious as Stephen and Deanna are very helpful and offer suggestions for daytime activities. The breakfast has always been delicous, beautfully served in an
oceanfont room. Staying at the Inn at Sunrise Point is a wonderful experience.
We stayed for one night at the Inn at Sunrise Point. While the site is lovely, the price of the rooms did not match the service and quality of the place. My frined and I were given the newly refurbished "Wyeth" suite which was a large bedroom, nicely furnished with a new bathroom. My children stayed in a small cottage which had a living room as well as a bedroom. Both rooms in the cottage needed updating and were small. The bathroom was in no way luxurious. I had expected a much nicer place. The cottage where my children were was comparable to some motels suites.
A slice of heaven
The Inn at Sunrise Point is a slice of heaven. Where else can you go to get away from it all with beautiful scenery, lobster fishermen a stones throw away, schooners out in the distance, and REAL fireplaces. The innkeepers are wonderful and breakfast is hot, delicious, and plentiful. The maids seemed invisible to us as we went to breakfast and our cottage was completely straightened by the time we were done. We have the good fortune to travel extensively and rate Sunrise at the very top of smaller places we've been to. We will be back, and most probably more than once.
My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Inn at Sunrise
I stayed at the Inn at Sunrise point with my boyfriend last winter and again in August 2003. I totally disagree with the negative reviews. We slept and ate very well. The breakfasts were delicious and home-cooked and we appreciated the snacks and decadent chocolate chips cookies they offered throughout the day. We slept very well and did not find the beds at all uncomfortable. (We're from New York City and actually slept better than we had in months!) We stayed in the main house and had a beautiful view of the water to wake up to in the morning. It was romantic and picturesque. The hosts, Deanna and Stephen were very friendly and courteous (without overdoing it) and knew the area very well. I think you get what you pay for and while the Inn at Sunrise Point is not inexpensive in price, we thought it was worth every penny.
In July, looking for a much needed weekend getaway, I decided to take my girlfriend for a romantic weekend at what I had been told was a charming New England town. I was not disappointed by either Camden nor the Inn at Sunrise Point. The owners were extraodrinarily helpful, gave great restaurant advice, and were fantastic conversationalists. Staying in the Winslow Homer, we were right on the water, and had amazing sunrise views from our comfortable bed. Breakfast was great, with spectacular views of the bay, and although the t.v's were not of the plasma widescreen variety, they were large enough to enjoy...and if I had wanted to watch t.v. I would have stayed home. Instead, I much preferred the spectacular scenery. As an extensive world traveler, The Inn ant Sunrise Point and Camden clearly rank in my top five!
I read the other reviews before arriving at The Inn at Sunrise Point and I must admit, I was a bit skeptical. We were looking for a place to celebrate my 40th birthday and I chose Camden. The last time we visited this oh so quaint New England town was 5 years earlier and we thought it was time to go back. Camden did not disappoint us! We stayed in the Richard Russo cottage and found it to be very cozy, though not small, extremely clean, with a comfortable bed, a TV that could be easily viewed while in bed(even tho, yes, we did have to angle it a bit!) and a great view. An assortment of gourmet cheeses, crackers, fruit, chocolates and not to mention the wine and champage were left in our cottage as well. We found the main inn to be very charming and open and what a view! Various snacks, buckets of ice, cookies, etc. were always available thru out the day for us to enjoy. The breakfast was average/fine and we didn't find the breakfast room to be crowed. In fact, there were 2 small tables and one large farm table placed right in front of huge picture windows overlooking Penobscot Bay. The owners were very gracious, extemely intelligent, interesting people who introduced themselves, and offered to help with our dining/"tour-isty"arrangments. They called to confirm our reservations each evening, as we dined at The Hartstone Inn and Primo (!) and found both excellent. Both my husband and I look forward to our next visit, hoping to get a cottage a little closer yet to the water. If you are looking for a very quiet, beautiful, peaceful place to stay, this is it. Oh, we were also given a tour of the upstairs rooms in the main inn and all have wonderful views. We have stayed at many inns/bandb's in Maine and Vermont and have no problem recommending this property.
This was the one inn that we definitely wanted to experience during our 27th wedding anniversary trip. Unfortunately, the Inn is extremely over-hyped, very expensive, and lacks hospitality. The new owners, not available when we checked in, never introduced themselves to me or offered any comments of concern or conversation. The 45 minute breakfast dining span was too short, and most of the offerings were self-serve with no prior notice of what the breakfast entree would be (I have an allergy concern). Only one daily newspaper was available to share with others. The room TV was barely accessible for viewing from the bed. The room was neat and clean, but a maid challenged me about the source of blood on a pillowcase. I was sadly disappointed with the service, especially at a $340.+ rate.
My wife and I visited the Inn at Sunrise Point in August. First, the good, we stayed in the Fitz Hugh Lane cottage which was right over the water, the location could not have been better. I should state, however, that not all of the cottages have the same view. The cottage was good sized and attractive. The bed, however, was very hard and uncomfortable. The cottage had no air conditioning and got very warm during the hot summer day and evening making it somewhat difficult to sleep. The cottage had a small TV and VCR, but they were located in a cabinet that was very far from the bed so if you wanted to utilize them you would have to sit in their uncomfortable chairs to see properly.
