The Driftwood Inn
Bailey Island, ME 04003
There’s nothing fancy about this dining room on Casco Bay’s Bailey Island, but the fried eggs taste better here. Could be they’re perfectly cooked, or the briny ocean breeze erases the memory of breakfast anywhere else. Get some pie—they’re made locally by some sort of pie magician.

The Driftwood is “Maine rustic,” once understood to mean naturally air-conditioned, with shared living rooms heated by fireplaces (there are also electric heaters), and guest rooms with shared and half baths (some are now private). Breakfast and dinner (BYOB) are served in a pine-walled, multiwindowed dining room at time-polished tables. A saltwater pool is tucked into rocks above a sheltered cove.
