Spectacular Views and Unmatched Food
Set on a granite ledge rising from the sea and surrounded by flower gardens, the Craignair was built in 1928 to house workers from the nearby quarries. It was converted to an Inn in 1947 and little has changed here since the turn of the century. You can still feel the mood of a once lively and active working town. The union hall still stands as well as the old general store and post office. The chapel, where the stone-cutters and their families once worshiped, is now an annex to the Inn. Evidence of the quarry-workers' time is also portrayed in the beautiful granite causeway that stretches across the water to Clark Island, where a great quarry was once the center of this picturesque village.
The Inn is open year round and the restaurant is open seasonally. 15 minutes from Rockland, halfway down the St. George Peninsula we are right on the water. The Inn is 2 hours from Portland, 40 minutes from Camden and about 2.5 hours from Bar Harbor.
We serve fresh, local foods from Bowden's Egg Farm, Miller's Lobster, Jess's Market, Curtis Meats, etc. Home-made breads, sauces, desserts and beautifully presented plates.
Recently overheard: "Best chef on the Peninsula!"
"Breakfast worthy of Food Network!"
Michael and Joanne O'Shea bought the Inn in 2010 and are from Colorado.
