This is a gorgeous place to stay if you need to be near Augusta. Just a short distance away from Augusta in the very quaint Village of Hallowell, it was the perfect retreat. We were impressed that the farm uses solar and wind power to generate it's energy requirements and it's position on top of a hill gives you a lovely vista to gaze upon while sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch watching the Llamas frolic in their field. We stayed in Room 5 which was a good sized room, extrememly comfortable queen size bed, in room en-suite, free in room WiFi and, being a corner room, offered lovely views in two directions. There is a common kitchen for guests which had lovely snacks and drinks available 24 hours. There was also a bar for that essential cleansing ale or two. Vince and Scott were charming and attentive hosts. Although on the night of our stay they were hosting two weddings, they still had time to advise us on the local eateries and sightseeing options of the area. The breakfast, prepared by Vince, was delicious! We would also like to mention a wonderful little restaurant in Hallowell, Joyce's. The food was first class and very reasonably priced. I had the Grilled Chicken with Roasted Garlic Pesto Sauce and the chicken was cooked to perfection, tender and melt in your mouth. My husband had the Roast Pork with Stuffing & Bourbon Demi Glace which he raved about. Maple Hill Farm Inn and Joyce's for dinner, a winning combination!
