I often think about writing reviews, but rarely get around to it. But this B&B is so deserving of accolades that I couldn't miss the chance to add mine. This is my second night, and I am sitting in front of the fireplace in my large lavish room (Eagle's Nest) eating the homemade oatmeal raisin cookies that were left in our room while we were out to dinner, and drinking Starbuck's hot chocolate, which I made in the little gallery right outside my door. Later, I will take a dip in the hot tub (10 feet from the door) although the indoor pool is also inviting, then spend 15 min in the sauna (5 feet from my door) before hopping into the magnificent four poster bed where I will sleep like a baby in the quietest place in Maine. When I get up in the am, I will take a luxurious shower with the high scale bath products in my large bathroom, put on the warm robe left in my walk-in closet, make a cup of Keurig coffee and sit on my private deck overlooking the water. At eight, I will wander onto the veranda for a 3 course gourmet breakfast, again overlooking the water, before I head into one of the many coastal Maine towns (Bass Harbor, Southwest Harbor, Bar Harbor) for a day of adventure.
Do I have your attention yet?
I haven't even reached the high point- the hosts! Alan and Jeanette are warm and gracious, and made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in their door. When we arrived, Alan was making cheese (!), which we had with wine and crackers at 5:30 ( a nightly occurrence). Within a few minutes we were talking like old friends, and Alan's enthusiasm for making cheese and growing mushrooms was contagious - he lent my husband a book and we are already planning our first crop. The inn has only four rooms, so it is very intimate and it has been great fun meeting the other guests as well.
Great attention has been paid to every detail, the place is exquisite, the food is delectable, the hosts are delightful. My only regret is that we are leaving on Sunday. But not before we book next year!
