Our family loves Harpswell , Baily and Orrs Island. We have rented three and four bedroom cottages for the past three summers. I wanted to take my husband back for a long weekend for his birthday. I was familiar with the location of Quahog Bay Inn and took a chance and booked our weekend “sight unseen”.
We were very impressed and had a very relaxing weekend. We rented the Gulls Nest unit. It was EXTREMELY clean, nicely decorated and very roomy. It was the size of a nice condo.
Jane is a delightful hostess. She is very helpful with any information you may need and we looked forward to the yummy morning pastrys she offered for breakfast. Our first night we ate in and had steamed lobsters brought to our room.
The Quahog Bay Inn is centrally located. We were a short trip from Popham Beach and ended our day with dinner at our favorite restaurant , The Dolphin Marina. We purchased lobsters from Jane and her husband for our trip home. They were packaged perfectly .
We are planning on making this our annual birthday celebration destination.
“Fun place.... great folks”

We were only there for (3) nights again which isn’t really enough. The place is comfy and clean, the folks taking care of us very friendly.
We were in Gulls Nest on the ground floor last year, which was very nice, but we sprang the extra $$ for Crows Nest on top floor this year and it was worth every nickle. If you’re like me at all, and can relax for hours, watching the lobster boats and the birds do their thing, this is a perfect spot with a good long view.
The bay was nice and calm for canoeing so we rented one for 1/2 day. We were thinking about the tides (maybe 10′ tide there) but the wind is probably more to deal with. We lucked out and had little breeze.
The breakfast offerings, including fresh baked blueberry muffins, are yummy and are all you need to hold you over until lobster roll time. We always brought ours back to our deck rather than eat in the cozy dining area… nothing against the dining area but our deck was just too good.
It’s an easy drive to anywhere else in Harpswell from QBI, and just 15-ish minutes to go to Brunswick if you need anything the smaller stores don’t have.
Then there’s the lobsters cooked at the dock for you. Done right and delivered or you can go fetch ’em. In addition to what we ate there, we ordered up a bunch to pick and bring home for lobster rolls.
So, go visit. If you don’t enjoy it…well, I can’t help you.

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!

The Quahog Bay Inn is located right on the water in Harpswell. The inlet has lobster boats, a dock, picnic tables, and kayaks and boats for guests’ use. During our trip (mid-October), we stayed in the Gull’s Nest Suite, and it was absolutely perfect. More like an apartment, the Gull’s Nest has a full kitchen, living room, dining area, bedroom and bath, plus a deck off the back overlooking the water. In the morning, breakfast is served in the open kitchen in the Inn’s check-in office.
All in all, our stay was spectacular. The Inn is family-run, and the cozy feel of the rooms, as well as the property, make you feel as though you are right at home. The area, though quiet at night, is incredibly beautiful and quintessentially “Maine.”

My wife and I recently stayed at Quahog Bay Inn for 7 nights. We did not want to leave and we cannot wait to return next year.
Jane is an exceptional innkeeper and a wonderful person and the staff, Hallie and Mike were fantastic too. Our suite, The Gulls Nest, was a home away from; clean, spacious and comfortable. We loved the instant availabilty of the wonderful fresh lobster. The inn is a very convenient base to the Harpswell/Brunswick area.
