My husband and I stayed at Holbrook house in the Lafayette Suite for 2 nights. We arrived late, so the innkeepers left a personalized note at the door with directions to enter. We entered our suite via private entrance. It was obviously newly renovated. Very clean with plenty of room to relax and enjoy some quiet time. The king size... More

The breakfasts were top-notch, taste and presentation-wise. Eric was a great source of information about restaurants, things to do, etc. with carefully notated maps provided multiple times during our visit. We would definitely stay... More

We stayed four nights in Holbrook House and loved it. Eric was welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and we always had a good night's sleep on the comfortable mattresses. The common areas are cosy, and there is space for guests to either sit in front of gas fire or in the adjacent room where you can sit peacefully... More

Great place, close in to everything. Acadia Nat. Park is one way, shops/restaurants the other way, either is very close. The room was neat, clean. The breakfast was gourmet quality both mornings of our stay. Eric was exceptionally nice and very helpful with locations and directions. I'd stay here on my next trip for sure.
