We spent two days at the Timbercliffe Cottage Lodge, which is a beautiful old house with a great porch that has been lovingly and tastefully restored in a colonial ‘Williamsburg’ style with plenty of character – even the floors slope slightly in places! It has been decorated with great attention to detail; check out the staircase – there is a beautiful painting on the front of each stair!
We stayed in the Chancey Keep Room which was extremely spacious and had a wonderful view of Pennobscot Bay. The bed was amazingly comfortable with wonderful linens and there was a gas fireplace for the chilly evenings. There are two common rooms for guests to use and after we came back from an evening meal, a fire was roaring in the sitting room inviting you to sit and chat with other guests.
Breakfast was served in the formal dining room and was delicious and filling – Karen also makes the most wonderful afternoon treats and they also have a butler’s pantry with endless tea, coffee, sodas etc. which was very useful.
Dave and Karen are very friendly and gracious hosts that make you feel comfortable and immediately at home. By the way, Caffrey, the Golden Retriever is absolutely adorable and although he doesn't mingle with the guests, he loves to have a fuss made of him! We really enjoyed our stay.
