Other things to note
This room is located in the historic Main Inn, which was built in 1765. This means the building and our accommodations are in fact old. We are not modern chic, but a unique boutique!
This room has an antique pedestal tub with no rails, and steep tub walls. If you need a walk in shower or a tub with less steep sides, book accordingly.
There is wifi in this building, but the signal is strongest in the living room.
This room gets a very good cross breeze from its windows that face North + South.

We do have wifi, with signal strength being strongest in the living room (buildings made in 1765 aren't wifi friendly!).
As with all Inns, be mindful of noise level especially if you are on the 2nd floor!
If you are checking late, the front door is ALWAYS unlocked since we have a live-in nightwatchman. Do not knock, just walk in!
All rooms have locks and keys.
All rooms are heated, and have a thermostat on the wall!

The Moorings Inn is a locally owned, ocean-side, historic Inn with a rich history dating back to 1765. Located at the base of Somes Sound on Mount Desert Island, you can see all of the mountains of Acadia with clear views of the sunrise and sunset just from our backyard. We pride ourselves in our history, uniqueness, and this property's ability to make you disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life! We offer wine & cheese nights in season for our guests-- to be enjoyed indoors or on our private beach! There is also a boat rental service on-site (Mansell Boat) that guests have priority for should they want a captained charter or to cruise around the island solo. Our location on the edge of Manset bay keeps our weather windy and cool, so we have no a/c in any units. Our Inn was built to be a personal house in 1765, and was turned into an Inn in 1916--- but has never lost its feel of a home! To respect its history, our Inn is filled with antiques, nautical themes, and many ship models. As with many historic Inns, the few families that have owned these buildings have worked hard to keep them as original and unique as possible--- so we are by no means modern-day chic, but are a unique boutique! Go to our website (mooringsinn) to check out more pictures of our Inn and grounds! We are located on 133 Shore Road, Southwest Harbor, ME.

During your stay
The Moorings Inn was originally built in 1765 by a Dutch sailmaker, Andrew Tucker, as his family's personal house. It has operated as a bed and breakfast since 1916. In 2011, we changed from a Bed and Breakfast to an Inn due to a fire that destroyed the restaurant next door. We take pride in the historical significance of this property, as it is one of the oldest buildings in the state operating as an inn. We are a unique boutique, NOT modern chic! The few owners and families that have owned this property have worked hard to keep this building as unique, preserved, and different from most anything you'll come across!

Our property is right on the ocean, which keeps our weather mild and fairly windy. Due to this, WE DO NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING IN ANY UNITS-- however there are fans available in the rooms on the occasion they are needed.
Our Inn focuses on the beauty of our one of a kind view, so most rooms do not have a TV. All cottages have a TV.
We have boat rental business on-site, which offer power or sailboat rentals as well as captained charters and can be reached at 207-244-5625.
