The historic aspect of this Civil War Regiment
Overpriced, was overcharged (we were from out of state, this happened to 2 parties in our group and both times refunds needed to be made, I'm still waiting for mine and we have left the state). 8th Maine appears to be poorly managed, overcharging, well in advance of 11 a.m. checkout we were pressed to pay for our stay, amenities are few, many rules to follow but nothing that limits amount of time in shower, one person tied up shower for 45 min! men's shower ran cold, cool reception, great for Civil War buffs or scouts, etc., would not bring an elder there, steep stairs, poor lighting. men go down flight of stairs at night for men's room. Many rules, building is old so needs upgrade/replacement of some areas of porch. Not what I expected, expected better, friendlier welcome.
too many rules!
Eclectic mixture of historical setting, European hostel experience, seaside retreat, and summer camp. Exceptional hosts! Not for those looking for luxury; perfect for those seeking an unforgettable stay and contact with friendly ghosts!
That the City of Portland doesn't allow excellent accommodations like the 8th Maine to list itself as a "Hostel" - it's neither a hotel nor a B&B. Without the hostel designation, the right guests can't find it, and the wrong guests think they are going to some place different.
The view from the back porch
This was like a campground with a roof. Bathrooms were on a different floor from my room and were barely tolerable. Parking your car was an extra $10 a day. Where else are you supposed to park? To charge $290 for a two night stay in this dump is a disgraceful rip-off. $20 or $30 a night max, and I still wouldn't stay there again due to the inaccesible bathrooms. No food service at all. A rip-off.
The campy atmosphere- great antiques
Bathrooms separated so far away
The elder Mr. Adams was a delightful host. And hearing the waves just outside my bedroom window was wonderfully relaxing.
I didn't like the fact that I was initially charged $191 for a room that would have been rated with a single star (if any) by aaa. Your website does not prepare people for the rustic nature of your accommodations. $40 or $50 a night would be far more appropriate than even the regular $140. It's all about location-location-location and you would still draw people based on that without glossing over the reality of the very basic rooms and the rustic nature of the communal accommodations. The only thing that saved us from major disappointment was having a room at ground level that was a few feet from the Atlantic.
Great location. Dick Adams was the best host you could want. He told lots of great stories about Peaks Island.
Lots of rules.
This is a no frills place but it's history makes up for it as well as the 84 yo Dick Adams,proprioter, who gave us insight and stories about the island and Regiment.
Spotlessly clean. Great location, wonderfully quirky. You get your own larder, gas hob and fridge to prepare your own food. Superbly-stocked with kitchen paraphenalia. Lots to do: games, ping-pong table, piano, books, daily newspaper.
The antique civil war home was really rustic. Reminded me of a hostel I stayed in during a trip to Europe. Amazing view of the bay. It had a large kitchen to cook breakfast or dinners.
Poor lighting. The owner never asked to exchange clean towels.
Gorgeous setting. Historic building. Fabulous views. Comfortable, basic rooms, great games in great room, incredible kitchen supplies for make your own - think of it as camping without the pit toilets.
Shared bathrooms. 1 shower for 10 rooms, 2 toilets. A lot of rules, can't take coffee or snacks upstairs and sit on porch, no comfy chairs on great porch.
The history of the rustic place. It made you feel that you had gone back in time,
The idea of no air conditioners in the rooms. Also wasn't able to take snack or drinks only but water into your rooms.
Everything. Our booking was for three days prepaid.But we checked out after 2 nights because of very poor facilities. Is there any chance we could get back our one night's money back? We would greatley appriciate this.
Loved the atmosphere of the lodge - very period authentic and original. The view was amazing and the original furnishings and windows were very nice. Loved the communal aspect of dining. The caretakers are welcoming and gracious.
The bathrooms are small and the shower is not spacious.
Room faced the ocean, was beautiful, had a great porch overlooking the water.
friendly and social atmosphere, very relaxed. huge openplan ground floor available for social activities with many amenities. Self catering. Great location.
There are a few rules that are redundant and could be updated/removed.
Beautiful setting, nice host, interesting history
no individual shower for room
