We went to the Ogunquit Chamber of Commerce & The Harwell House Inn was recommended by a lovely lady as a romantic getaway. As soon as we entered the inn & saw the smiling & friendly faces of the Inn keepers Charlene & Eric we knew we had made the right choice for our 25th Anniversary getaway to Ogunquit. We had our choice of rooms & decided on Lady Hamilton's Garden or as the inn keepers called it, "The Cape Cod Room." The room is furnished in white wicker furniture & even had a bonus kitchen to use, even though we didn't need it. The room also has it's own entrance. There are only 8 rooms at the main inn along with another 8 rooms across the street, so you feel like you are in someone's home.
The afternoon tea was another bonus, you could have hot tea or iced tea. It was a chance to meet other guests & enjoy the yummy chocolate cookies Charlene had made along with grapes crackers & cheese. We enjoyed our afternoon tea out in their lovely gardens. For breakfast we had our choice of Apple Pie Waffles, Omelet or eggs prepared how we wanted it, along with juice & coffee along with yummy homemade peach muffins that Charlene made & she even shared her recipe for them. I have since made the peach muffins at home & my family loves them.
Both inn keepers are awesome cooks. The Apple Pie Waffles were also tasty.
The inn is 1 block from Perkins Cove which has restaurants & shops and the start of Marginal Way ( a wonderful cliff walk along the ocean),
The innkeepers were very generous & even surprised us with a bottle of champagne for our Anniversary!!
You can park your car & just walk to everything. A AWESOME stay at the Harwell House Inn.
