The Inn looks like a large home, and they’ve designed it to mimic one. After all, it’s your home while you’re here.
They hope that you’ll think of their lobby and Great Room as your inviting and homey living room. They’ve filled the room with comfortable seating vignettes around the fireplace and their bookcase is stocked with games, magazines, books and fun items so you feel right at home. They’ve designed the Great Room for every occasion, whether you want to work using the free WiFi, relax, meet friends, browse the books or enjoy drinks and dessert. It’s also a great spot to relive your childhood memories playing some Monopoly.
Like at home, they know that most of your time isn’t spent in your bedroom, but that you want your space serene and comfortable. The guest rooms are small in size because they’ve found most of guests prefer to be enjoying activities and the living space, but the rooms are peaceful just the same. There is seven different types of rooms to ensure that your travel expectations are met and you can prioritize based on what’s important to you – that ocean view or that lower priced room.
Here’s what you can expect, regardless of the room you select: White walls and white floors, with custom Maine art and furnishings (no two rooms are the same!), custom queen bed, fluffy down pillows and crisp Italian hem-stitched linens, free WiFi, nightly turndown service, breakfast each morning, absolutely no TVs or phones, so you’re not tempted to stay in bed, no air conditioning – not needed when you have Maine’s cool, ocean breeze!
The Sunset Landing Porch is their version of your patio. They’ve brought the indoors out, with large oversized lounge furniture so you can comfortably relax while taking in the ocean view. Outdoor blankets are available so you can cozy up even when it might not be “warm enough.” Their servers are there to ensure you have all the drinks and snacks you desire, or a refill of your morning coffee. The porch is complete with corn hole and a firepit just below for later in the evening, because who wants to go inside?
Eating local is important to Chebeague Island Inn. They’re fortunate to have Second Wind Farm on island where they get as much produce as possible, a Chef’s Garden at the Inn for herbs and smaller produce (which they encourage you to tour), a lobsterman who fishes just off the coast and brings the kitchen lobsters daily. Their mussels frequently come from Bangs Island, three miles away, which you can sign up to tour. The restaurant is a popular spot also for boaters, guests and locals.
On the island, you can find most people at one of the many beaches. There's a great beach just around the corner from the Inn where they will make sure you're comfortable with some beach chairs, towels, an umbrella and pail of bottled water (or wine if you'd prefer). If you're up for a small adventure, people really love walking across the sand bar to Little Chebeague. Be sure you check about the tides, because when the tide comes in, the sand bar disappears.
When you're feeling active, grab a bike from the Inn and take a cruise to the General Store or The Niblic for some lunch, snacks and a few souvenirs. You'll pass by The Golf Club and Tennis Club, both of which are available for use.
