          The Tidewater is as Down East Maine as it gets. Clean, charming in a quirky sort of way, phenomenal views from the room, a little dated here and there, superb bedding, plenty of hot water, and a great and accommodating host. Phil Crossman was wonderful...More

          Enjoyed a unique experience on a fast running tide flowing right under the motel. Room was nice, but nothing fancy. Mattress was pretty bad, but didn't stay here for luxury, stayed for the experience! Tide really runs out fast and comes in quiet. Great views/photos...More

          My wife and I decided to sail to Vinalhaven, as our first overnight glamping trip. The Tidewater Inn was the ideal location, as we had a perfect view of Carver's Harbor to enjoy seeing our daysailer amongst the lobster boats. Centrally located on the island,...More

          Were this motel by the side of a generic highway I would think it were generic, dated, and a little overpriced. But it is literally built on top of a reversing tidal rapids. We sat on our deck and watched a cormorant repeatedly dive and...More

          Yes, it is true, the tide is ebbing right under me (room 4) tonight forming a sort of soothing white noise. The room is not luxurious by any standard but is nice and serviceable for our stay here. Love the porch right over the water....More
