We stayed in room 3 recently (the turret room). It was large, and the fireplace was great. It's kind of fun just picking up a key and going to your room without a lot of formalities (the key holder was also the bartender the afternoon when we checked in). They were very helpful when we asked if the fireplace could be used, they bent over backwards to get wood, kindling and matches).
There were a few things that made this room less than perfect. It is an older building, and there is some wear and tear in the room. Not a big deal, and somewhat part of the charm. The carpet is the flat, industrial kind. Something a little more plush would have been nice. Minor, but a bit of a downer when we were staying there especially for our anniversary. As mentioned in other reviews, there is some road noise. Minor to those of us who have lived in cities and busy suburbs, but more than usual for Maine.
My biggest concern is that it is connected to Room 4. There was a family with two small children next door, and every noise and scream from the children came through clear as day. Luckily, they went to bed early, and by the time we got home from a late dinner, they were asleep. There is the possibility of unwanted noise from that connected room.
Overall, though, it was a lovely building ,and the room certainly had a lot of charm and character.
