“Our new favorite inn.” “The Blue Hill Inn stands out as a gem.”
At the Blue Hill Inn, individualized guest attention is the first priority. Innkeeper Duncan Hamilton 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.
“The inn is very old and classic, in great condition and decorated beautifully, with very nice grounds.”
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 more 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.
