We've stayed in many B and B's and Inn on Carleton is certainly one of the very best. We were so happy to have been able to stay here recently. Old homes like this, lovingly restored and expertly decorated, are a pleasure to visit. Combine that with the excellent service from Buddy and Cindy and one becomes spoiled very quickly! They were so warm, welcoming, and helpful. I honestly don't think I have ever met an innkeeper/hostess as happy and bubbly as Cindy. Her sunny disposition cant help but make one feel fantastic! Buddy was so friendly and knowledgeable about area attractions, restaurants,etc.
Our stay was made even more fun by the fact that we stayed in 3 different rooms; not by our request but by minor scheduling issues the inn had. We were more than OK with this. We were booked in Room 4 for two nights. We found this to be the quietest room. We were in Room 6 for one night. It was definitely the largest room, but could hear folks in adjoining room and also heard typical "city" noises for a while. Things seemed to quiet down by 11PM or so. Our last night was spent in Room 2. It was a lovely room but bathroom was the smallest of,the 3 rooms. It could also use a ceiling fan. It's best feature was the very comfortable bed. Although we found a few "dust bunnies" in the rooms, they were basically very clean.
The breakfasts here were very good and served on time. We loved the coffee--delicious! It was noted that all guest requests for breakfast choices were met. We also appreciated the snacks, cookies, water available at all times.
We stayed in 3 different B and Bs during our tour of Maine and this was the best one; Cindy and Buddy made our stay so memorable. We would recommend this inn to others and would stay here again.
