My husband and I (and our 9 month old daughter) recently visited the Inn with my in-laws for their 45th anniversary. We booked two one bedroom suites (Gull’s Nest and Crow’s Nest). Both were immaculate! Brand new rugs, decks had just been rebuilt and I couldn’t get over how clean it was. The bathrooms were modern, with hotel-like amenities and touches. We rented a boat right from their dock for a half day, swam off the swim ladder right on property and even had lobsters and a pot delivered to our room. (They will cook for you until 5pm but we chose to cook ourselves as we wanted to eat later). We brought breakfast fixing to cook, but the continental breakfast was quite nice, warm blueberry muffins, fruit, yogurt, etc. It’s a family owned place and they take pride in their relatively new business (only 4 years ago they started this). The units used to be apartments and are huge! I was concerned as I saw limited reviewed, but was not disappointed! We had gorgeous sunsets and sunrises from our waterfront deck and I would absolutely go back. Felt like real Maine too!

“Can’t Wait to Return to the Quahog Bay Inn”

My husband and I stayed at the Quahog Bay Inn last May for our anniversary. We only stayed one night, but it was so wonderful, we are going back again this year. We stayed in the Crow’s Nest, and it was just beautiful. The views were lovely, and the suite was more like an apartment than a typical hotel room. I have yet to stay in a cleaner place! You can tell that the owners take great pride in their establishment. We had lobster for dinner that night in our suite. It was cooked right on the premises and delivered hot. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, this is the place!

We stayed here for two nights, in Crow’s Nest. Our living room and dining room overlooked the bay, complete with lobster boats docked in front of the Inn. It was a full apartment that felt very private, even though it was right above another suite. It had all the amenities- a full kitchen, a comfortable living room perfect for lounging, and a very comfortable bed. The bathroom was also top notch, stocked with plenty of tolietries. The best feature of the suite was the large, very private balcony. It overlooked the water, and it offered a place to get a clear view of the Maine skies at night. The whole suite was truly peaceful- most of the time. The only issue we had during our stay was that one of the lobster boats started its engine around 6am and it kept on running at the dock for hours. I’m a pretty light sleeper, so it was hard for me to sleep. But that was no fault of the hotel- maybe just keep a pair of ear plugs handy. Also, do be sure to bring snacks and such, as there aren’t really many shops around, especially that are open in the evening.
For a trip to the Eastern coast of Maine, this Inn’s location is perfect; close to Portland and the Portland JetPort, and also Boothbay Harbor and Bath- both excellent cities. For a taste of real Maine, book a trip at the Quahog Bay Inn.

We highly recommend the Crow’s Nest 1 bedroom suite on the 3rd floor which was spacious, comfortable, well appointed and had spectacular views from the living room and private deck. Soothing sounds of the birds and water, ocean breezes through the many large windows. Helpful, friendly staff. Decent continental breakfast. Nicely located in Harpswell area for rides to area restaurants and sightseeing along the penisulas. We would definitely stay there again.

Before booking my stay I did a ridiculous amount of research. I wanted to stay somewhere along the coast of Maine, preferably directly on the water, with charm, and at a fair price. I went to several websites only to be disappointed when i looked at their actual location with google maps / street view. This is by far your best option for staying in a coastal Maine town that is not over the top touristy. Staying here allows you to get a real Maine experience.
By the way you can buy cooked lobsters off the dock and eat them in your own kitchen or on your own private balcony!
Room Tip: worth the money for the crows nest.

Having spent over a week hopping about between Boston, Cape Cod, Newport and Kennebunkport, it was delightful to spend 2 days relaxing at Quahog Bay. The view from The Crow’s Nest is spectacular; we could happily have sat there for the duration of our stay but we did stir ourselves to do some hiking in this delightful part of Maine.
Breakfast is taken with the family and the freshly baked pastries, cakes and scones were delicious. I am hard-pressed to find fault but some wine glasses in our apartment would have been nice!

“Wonderful location and owner/host!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2011
Wow, a spectacular location. The views of the water are incredible. You are 20 feet from a working lobster fishing dock. The lobster fisherman come to the breakfast location for food and talk about the fishing, the lobsters, and their boats. You can walk twenty feet and be face to face with a big wall of lobster traps, and off the the left just a little bit is a small shed where the lobsters are kept after they are caught. You would not want to be a lobster up here, the colorful buoys marking the lobster traps are everywhere.
Fresh cookies or muffins or scones or apple pie style pastries were baked fresh each morning we were here (June 18 and June 19). Very tasty, excellent when warm.
Rooms were spacious – we were in the “crows nest” and “osprey” rooms.
We talked with the owner each day with breakfast, very nice person!
