The room was spacious with large, comfortable beds. One bed was a bunk bed, except that the bottom was really large. We came down to visit friends and enjoy the summer activities at Sunday River Ski Resort. We went on the Chondola (chair and gondola) Lift and zip lining. The kids enjoyed the bungee trampoline and I got to go...

We stumbled along this Inn on our way home from Nova Scotia and if we had more than one night available to stay we would have. The rooms felt like you were staying at grandmas place. The rooms/grounds/pool area etc were immaculate. The young couple that own this Inn are so accommodating and sincere you felt like you were at...

An extremely well kept motel in rural Maine. This hotel was very clean and neat inside and out. They offer a free cooked to order breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rate was very reasonable. Highly recommended if you're traveling northwest Maine.

We booked the Inn at the Rostay last minute as a quick stop over between our origin in Canada and our destination in Boston. After staying at the Inn - we wish we had planned more time.

If you are looking for a good old fashioned motel, this is your pick! Modest , two full sized beds, small space ,tiny bathroom,stall shower,working window a/C. That is it. Park immediately in front of motel room. Not an Inn. Busy highway out front,but set back is fine. Trip down memory lane!!!!

After driving Route 2 through Vermont and New Hampshire most of the afternoon we decided at 6pm that we had better start looking for a place to stay... flying by the seat of our pants. We drove past The Inn at the Rostay and ended up turning around because it was the first appealing place we saw in an hour....

One of the nicest places we have ever stayed at. They have thought of everything!! From soap and shampoo dispensers in the showers to bug spray in a lovely bbq wooded area. The owners and their children are extremely warm and friendly. Awesome experience and a wonderful place to stay...we LOVED it!!

We stayed here one night before hubby participated in the Tough Mountain Challenge. The owners were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. The rooms were standard, but very clean. Breakfast was cooked-to-order and was the perfect start to our day. All in all, a great stay.

Loved the way they decorated with the Maine black bears and pine trees! Breakfast was cooked to order, delicious and fast. Service was very friendly and they aimed to please. Close by the ski area where the concert we attended was held. Price was affordable and was clean and comfortable.
