Island Inn

Spend the summer on the most unique island in Maine

The Island Inn is a well established seasonal hotel and restaurant located 11 miles off the shore of Mid Coast Maine on beautiful Monhegan Island-an unspoiled nature lover's paradise of woods, cliffs, and rocky shores, and a small community of fishermen and artists.

Most of the island is preserved as a conservation area with miles of hiking trails around stunning cliffs and rocky coves.
