Island Inn Monhegan Reviews
Living the good life on Monhegan Jun 15, 2010
The Island Inn is your other lodging option on Monhegan, where I never stayed but have dined at several times over twenty years. The Inn commands your attention when you put down on the island as it is clearly the largest structure around and poised atop the bluff over the town dock. The building was originally constructed in the early 1800’s (when it was known as the “Pink House”), evolving into its current massive presence a hundred years ago. Some might suggest it is a bit tattered, but I find the weathered look cries of the island’s isolated allure.
So I can’t tell you much about the rooms, but the restaurant and lobbies are spotless and crammed with antiques, suggesting the rest follows suit. The rambling porch of the Island Inn faces west, perfect to catch a sunset or gaze upon Manana Island, Monhegan’s sparkling little brother just across the harbor. I can also assure you that service in the restaurant is excellent and attentive, a further attribute I have no doubt carries over to the lodging services.
My wife and I have exclaimed that “next time” we need to stay at the Island Inn to sample what we know would be a wonderful experience. Alas, we cherish the Monhegan House too deeply to betray an old friend, but I encourage you to check it out confirm our suspicions
