Miller’s Lobster Company

We found this place by accident and that was most fortuitous. This place makes a great lobster roll. They keep it simple - lobster, roll and not much else. But the lobsters came right off the boat that was unloading them while we were there. If you are in the area, it is definitely worth the drive. They also have some great pies made by someone up the road. If you have the room, you should try a piece.
We had a great experience at Miller's! Lovely outdoor seating (your only option) and fresh lobster, mussels, corn, slaw, and seafood was all, DELICIOUS! Go - you will not be disappointed. Don't expect fancy, expect delicious -
When I went on my Maine vacation, I knew a visit to a lobster pound was an absolute requirement. But which one? I was staying in Rockport, and a friend had recommended another pound in Belfast. I knew about Miller's thanks to Yelp reviewers, and asked a local for a recommendation - which was "hands down Miller's". SO GLAD WE WENT! Wow did it blow away my expectations. The service was extraordinary; when they served me a 1 lb lobster instead of the 1.5 lber I ordered, they gave me both for no extra charge! The setting was gorgeous (yes, it is a little "tucked away" but it's worth the journey!). The water views were just what was needed for a Maine experience! Most importantly, however, the lobsters were fresh and amazingly delicious. I've had my fair share of Maine lobster, but this was the best yet. Hardly needed butter it was so flavorful. Do be warned that they stop serving at 7. But relax about payment, because they accept plastic now. Do yourself a favor and go.

We aren't usually the B&B type of folks, but this place seemed really nice and was super convenient along our trip route, and was pet friendly. Speaking of pets, lets start with a story about how awesome the owners are. We wanted to go to dinner up the road a little ways at a rather nice place (Primo..Rockland, ME) and obviously couldn't take the dog, and didn't feel comfortable leaving him in the room at this place since there was lots of foot traffic around the halls and he tends to bark and get nervous. So we asked the owner if she knew of a a dog sitter in the area. She referred us to a 12ish year old boy and his mom who lived right next door who offered to watch him for free. Of course we paid them, but it was a super nice gesture and great of the owner to set us up with them. As for the rooms, typical of what you'd expect at this type of place, it's clearly an older building so that lives a little bit to be desired, but everything was clean well maintained. There is a little restaurant attached. We didn't eat much there other than a little bite for breakfast, but it seemed really nice. IMPORTANT!!! After it gets good and dark, go out on the little bridge/road that goes out across the water. Stay out there for a few minutes to let your eyes adjust to the dark and be prepared to be amazed by the stars. It's so perfectly dark here and far enough away from civilization that the night sky is amazing. Same goes for getting up super early and see the sunrise. Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. Putting pictures up now :)
After this stay, I guess we're not bed and breakfast people. The room was very small, the bed was also small (I have a queen at home and it was not what was in the room). The floors made sounds every time we moved and we could hear everything from next door. We didn't get much sleep because the person next door snored all night and I think he worked at the Inn. So beware of room 19 on the 3rd floor! I was very worried about sharing a bathroom with others but it was always available when we wanted to use it. However, taking a shower in the morning was a nightmare. I couldn't move in the stall and it took forever because the water pressure was very low. I guess the price is high due to the location. It's on a peninsula and the view was gorgeous. We went on a hike around the island and sunset was splendid! It was also close to many of the lighthouses. The breakfast was also very good. We had homemade blueberry muffins-a little crunchy coating on the outside but moist on the inside. We also had mushroom, cheese fratata, which was very light yet flavorful. The potatoes were also amazing!
Craignair Inn in Spruce Head Maine was our first B&B experience.'s not the typical B&B but it was wonderful. We loved the idea of sleeping in the home of a treasured old friend instead of a massive hotel. Our host, Joan, asked enough of the right kind of questions of what we enjoyed and our dietary needs , that we didn't have to ask her for anything. The bed was very comfortable and cozy, I thought I was home. The rooms are not large and the tv was tiny, thank goodness! We only used the room to sleep. The real living spaces, found indoors and outdoors , were the spaces we explored. The Clark Island walk was very relaxing, don't forget the bug spray! Nature also abounds in the area, an adolescent moose crossed the road right in front of our car. We heard from several people visiting and living Maine year after year and never catching a glimpse. For our next visit we'll make certain that we're there a night that the restaurant is open. The menu and ingredients excited the foodies in us. The restaurant is closed Monday night so reserve for any other night. We love Maine and are looking forward to again visiting Craignair Inn, with the creaking floors, the little bit high steps, their beautiful puppy Mimi , who loves to be loved, the chock- full-of-blueberries blueberry muffins , the horseradish potatoes and yes, fresh coffee brewing when we get up.
