This was our first stay at the Black Lantern. My son and I are from Santa Monica, CA and on a college tour of the New England area. We had just driven 6 1/2 hours through a blinding snowstorm from Williams College to Bowdoin, a trip that normally takes 4 1/2-5 hours. Every time I called owner, Tom Connelie, to update him on my ETA (my son was supposed to stay overnight in the dorms) I heard a comforting voice. My son new the minute he got to Bowdoin and met some students that he didn't want to stay at Bowdoin and asked if he could come with me. Not only did Tom give me a separate room for my son, he refused to charge me for it. We didn't arrive to the Black Lantern until almost 10pm. It was such a relief to arrive at such a cozy, idyllic location. Tom met us with a smile, a warm greeting, offered us beverages, and asked what we'd like for breakfast. Both rooms were lovely and we slept great. Tom was up at 5am making us and the other guests a delicious gourmet breakfast. He also sent me a favorite belt I'd left behind, at his expense! I can't wait to go back to the Black Lantern and it's wonderful hospitality!
