You can just tell when an Inn Keeper loves what he does. Mark has done a great job restoring the Inn to a warm, comfortable and inviting place for visitors to stay. If you are headed to Dexter Maine, look no further for lodging. Trust that you will be welcomed with a clean comfortable room at fair and reasonable prices.... More
