Ahh, Nigel, it was so nice to have had you here, and to see your smiling faces at breakfast. Concerning the check in, we are a small family operation and need to grocery shop etc, therefore, not knowing what time guests will actually arrive, we do offer pre e mails as well as instruction and text and phone call communication about self check in. With foreign numbers and booking engine bookings rather than direct contact, we realize some guests may not check e mails or texts. The Breakfast survey is offered in order to eliminate dietary restrictions and preferences guests may have when we plan the buffet style of service each morning for our 10-12 guests. I’d say we could very well be average, in comparison to the offerings of this area, as guests could reserve far ahead of time and pay anywhere from $200-$2500 per night and quite possibly have a more formal experience. We cannot change our location, but many guests feel relieved to be away from the congestion and pricing of Bar a Harbor after experiencing it. Again, thank you for your acquaintance, we enjoyed meeting you.
