At the Blue Hill Inn, individualized guest attention is the first priority. Innkeeper Sarah Pebworth and the staff of the inn will make suggestions, assist with itineraries, help with directions, and make reservations. They are familiar with the area and can direct guests to great boating, live music, beautiful picnic spots, husband-friendly shopping, and delicious lobster rolls.
Complimentary breakfasts at the Blue Hill Inn are designed with guests in mind. Choices range from vacation decadent to watching one’s waistline. Special menus to accommodate individual food allergies or restrictions are easily arranged. The staff at the inn are passionate about working with local farmers, fishermen, and purveyors.
Located on an acre of land in the center of the village of Blue Hill and a block from the head of Blue Hill Bay, the inn, built in 1835, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Shade trees, a perennial garden, and a small grove of fruit trees enhance the grounds.
“Your inn is elegant and at the same time warm and comfortable.”
A Federal period building, the Blue Hill Inn has eleven guest rooms, a sun-filled dining room, and two comfortable parlors. It retains many of its original features, including clapboards, nine over six windows, wide pumpkin pine floor boards, and six fireplaces. Adjacent to the inn is the recently developed Cape House, with two larger, more modern suites with kitchens and televisions. The Suite features a private deck shaded by a willow tree and a full kitchen. The Studio offers a kitchenette.
Breakfast at the Inn
Richard and Nancy Woodworth of Inn Spots & Special Places say our breakfast is a culinary event! It is served each morning between 8 and 9:30 a.m. in our sun-filled dining room. Fresh fruit, assorted juices, and freshly baked sweet breads accompany a choice of cooked-to-order entrees or homemade granola. Blueberry pancakes, waffles with strawberries, brie and roasted red pepper omelets, and amaretto french toast are favorites among guests. Local ingredients, including organic Maine maple syrup, are featured, as well as organic coffee from Maine roasted coffee beans. With all our offerings, food allergies and restrictions are easily accommodated. We are also able to prepare breakfast to go if your schedule necessitates an early departure.
Homemade treats and hot and cold beverages are available in the parlor every day. Fresh baked cookies, chocolate-covered toffee, decadent cakes–one never knows what will emerge from the kitchen each afternoon. Fresh fruit, often local apples, is offered as well.
Hors d’oeuvres are served in the living room or in the garden from 6 to 7 p.m. each evening. Selections highlight Maine seafood, local and imported cheeses, and locally prepared salsas and chutneys. Wine, local beers, and a full line of fine liquors are available.
