We stayed two nights on our way round New England. The accommodation was very spacious and clean with very comfy chairs in our room. The bathroom was minute with definitely only room for one! A big contrast with the room!!
The breakfast was plentiful and it was possible to take it back to our room on pretty trays. We enjoyed it!
This was the friendliest place ever and the owner was very chatty and helpful. It is obvious she likes people! While we were there, she was hosting a supper for her neighbours in the business & when I remarked on it, the next morning, she said we could have joined them! If only we’d known!
It was quiet and peaceful with pretty gardens. Although just off the road, we were not troubled by traffic. Also a good location for the State Park & Camden nearby and restaurants in Lincolnville a couple of miles away. I would recommend it as a clean, economical place to stay!
We stayed for 2 nights. We loved our little cottage, it was clean and well maintained.. It was very relaxing. The continental breakfast was good. Staff was very friendly and helpful! We would definitely stay there again! It had an “Old School” charm.
