I went into the river room conservatory with my friends for a drink but this time without a suit. It was amazing to see how differently I was treated by the member of staff Jamie... More

The resort is located in a sumptious manicured rural estate setting and sits beside the picturesque Maine river. We had a Superior room on the top floor new wing which overlooked the river - very pretty. The... More
