These are not just people running an inn, these are people passionate about the area and the community. As soon as we were settled in the owner pulled out a map and showed us all of the best places to go in the Kennebunks and how to get there. They filled us in on all the local events taking place when we were there (even in the off-season this was an impressive list). They got us excited and made us feel like we belonged in Maine.
The quilts are beautiful and really add to the charm. We had a fire burning in our room, very romantic. The house itself is obviously old, but kept up and modernized enough to make it comfortable. Everything was impeccably clean (and I'm picky); we had booked a specific room based on what we saw online, but when we arrived there was another empty room so they let us choose which room we wanted...both were apparently kept clean and perfectly made up and ready for a guest.
The breakfast, ohhhh the breakfast. The homemade granola was delicious and healthy, and the french toast was made hot and fresh for us when we got downstairs. The table was set so pretty and the owners were able to casually join in the conversation with us and the other guests (not busy and rushed by their work).
We had a great time! We've already recommended it to friends looking to get away for a weekend.
