Fodor's Expert Review East Wind Inn

21 Mechanic St., Tenants Harbor, Maine, 04860, USA

The main building of this charmingly old-fashioned inn dates from the 1800s—when it was built as a boatyard sail loft (where sails were made)—and is furnished with locally sourced antiques and nautical accents. From the lawn, porch, or a water-side room, it's fun to watch lobster boats come into the wharf, unload their catch, and set off again. The Wan-e-Set dining room and an adjacent deck are the setting for continental (off season) or full (summer) breakfasts featuring avocado toast, biscuits and sausage gravy, and Benedicts. Lunch and dinner may also be offered in season. On the inn's lower level, the year-round Quarry Tavern offers comfort food beside a stone fireplace and is popular with locals and visitors.
