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.
Inn at Sunrise Point
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.
The most upsetting event, however, occurred in dealing with the manager of the place. His attitude was actually grim as well as controlling. The reservation had specified a "full" breakfast which turned out to be whatever he had cooked that morning. There was no choice in entree and we were allowed exactly two pieces of bacon per person. When my friend asked for more, he was told there was just enough for each guest.
At close to $500.00 per room per night, his attitude could use some improvement. Over -rated and overpriced place.
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.
The right prescription...
My wife and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Inn at Sunrise
Point, and haven't had a better time anywhere else. Where do you
For one, the rooms are fantastic with spectacular views. We had a
lovely wood burning fireplace which produced a very romantic setting.
The rooms do come with TV, VCR etc but we had better things to do with
our time together.
The sunrises and sunsets breath-taking. We found our accomodations clean, very comfortable and cheerful.
Stephen and Deanna Tallon, our hosts where very cordial and
accomodating. Knowing little of the area ourselves the Tallons guided
us through a number of fun things to do. I never knew I could have fun
hiking, and the views where great. We are going to try skiing when we
go up in the late fall. If you like to shop, they have some very quaint
stores in nearby Camden.
Morning breakfast in the sun-filled solarium was very relaxing.
Breakfast was a fine selection of what i just call "comfort food" eggs,
bacon , pancakes etc. and the best Irish soda bread west of Ireland.
Breakfast was generally more than enough to hold us through dinner, at
which time, the Tallons recommended these wonderful restaurants in the
The best thing I can say is that you can just enjoy yourself there
doing nothing as well. My wife and I both have high pressured jobs back
home and our stay at the Inn at Sunrise Point was absolutely the right
Our room cost was over $ 400 per night but well worth it. As my dear
old Mom would say while I was growing up, "Son, you always get what you
Never a truer word was said, and we are definitely going to return to
the Inn at Sunrise Point.
A beautiful and relaxing retreat
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.
We've already booked a reservation for this Spring.
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!
Christmas by the sea
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.
Christmas by the Sea was a wonderful way to jump start our holiday season!
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.
Great location, otherwise overated
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.
Breakfast is served in an attractive but crowded area and with the exception of one separate table you are forced to eat with other guests. There is no option to have breakfast delivered to your cottage or room, nor are their trays furnished so you could have breakfast somewhere else. The breakfast was good, but not great or particularly bountiful. The Inn's brochure claims they have been rated as one of the top Inns in the country, we would disagree. With the exception of the location it seemed very average, with service and comfort not being at the level of the better inns and bed and breakfast establishments. At over $400 per night, you can do better.

Jack and I learned the history of the Fresnel lens that was invented in 1822 and subsequently installed in lighthouses around the World to improve maritime navigation and safety.

Get woken up at 2am to a storm with lightening, thunder, high winds and pouring rain. Raining still when we get up and figure our day is washed out but it quits at 10am and the sun comes out. The staff find us a new spot for the rest of the long weekend and we happily move. Head into Camden to check it out. Camden is a great little village in a sheltered bay with a large harbor and lots of big boats! ...
