Quaint B&B/Alpaca Farm out in the county. Breakfast was outstanding! Hosts are friendly and accommodating as we arrived late and it was no problem (as long as you give them notice). You can tour the farm and say hello to the animals. The owner makes beautiful Alpaca clothing, rugs and goods that can be purchased at their store. Nothing softer than Alpaca mittens!
This is a very nice, larger, B&B very conveniently located near Freeport, but also far enough out that you really get an authentic feel. The hosts were wonderful, as was the food, and we truly enjoyed our stay. Definitely worth the visit - ask about the alpacas!
I arrived at the Royalsborough Inn after a 35-mile bike ride that told me I wasn't in as good shape as I thought I was. The rooms and gracious hospitality at the Inn were an antidote for sore muscles and a wonderful way to slow down and enjoy the Pinelands area in Maine. If it's the little things that matter: the water set out for tea is truly hot enough to make tea. If it's the big things: the owners raise alpacas with lush hair and enormous eyes that seemed quite happy to meet guests. On the weekend I stayed, Jim, an owner, prepared a delicious breakfast with frittata and "New England grits" that featured cheese and cranberries. He'd invented the recipe after talking with a guest from a southern state. The Inn is a 15-minute drive from Wolfe's Neck State Park on Casco Bay, and slightly closer to Freeport, both worth a visit. After I checked out and left Durham to explore, Jim called to say I'd left a backpack in my room. I'm very grateful that he called while I was close enough to pick it up easily. …
The Royalsborough Inn is a B&B on an alpaca farm about twenty minutes in from the coast of Maine. We spent two nights there, lodged in the outer building. Our room was comfortable with a good bed and lots of space. there is a large sitting area shared by all the guests with a fridge, microwave, etc. The soundproofing is not great so we could hear the people in the room above us but it was not much of an issue. The breakfasts are very good. Our hosts were charming, helpful with suggestions on where to eat and routes to take to and from the coast. While not a coastal inn it is close enough to coastal attractions and being away from the shore it is a quieter place and much more relaxing.
We stayed here overnight on our way from Portland to Augusta, Maine. The breakfast was awesome. The beds were good. . Its an old 1700 farm house so don't expect a lot of luxury, lots of antiques. I liked being able to walk around the farm and seeing the different animals. They also have a small store where things made from Alpaca yarn they make from the animals there. That wool is so soft! Beautiful place and grounds. The host and hostess were friendly and accommodated us well since we told them we were arriving late.
