I don't know where the last reviewers ate but It doesn't sound like Mill Hill. We drifted in after being turned off by the service (ZERO) at Gideon House one night last week and had a) great martinis - and we know our martinis - including a local Maine vodka martini b) excellent hummus and roasted red pepper dip c) yummy mains/tapas style plates and finally a mind bogglingly good chocolate/espresso cake that we had to take away. Good wine selections also and fun, friendly service. After that we returned and had the same level of experience. No this isn't a city-slick operation and no they don't have pepper grinders at the table - maybe that's because Woody gets the seasoning right up front - but it is friendly and efficient. Timing of courses was perfect as was dealing with the bill.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Mill Hill Inn, originally a barn built in the 1870s, was first converted into a private home in 1948 and then into a B & B in 1977. Lee and Woody Hughes purchased the inn in April of 2010 and renovated this wonderful structure from top to bottom during that summer. The newly renamed Mill Hill Inn opened its doors September 9, 2010. The inn is located just off the historic district on the north end of the Bethel Common, on a secluded acre and a half. This private setting is beautifully landscaped with both ornamental, vegetable, and herb gardens, producing food and flowers for the inn. The leveled lawn space adjacent to the front door area provides ample space for a 30' x 50' tent, suitable for weddings and private affairs. The Studio Bistro & Bar offer a unique menu and a full bar, served in the Great Room as well as in our dining room.The inn has six rooms, two of which are suites.
