To us a relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of life is something my fiance and I need to treat ourselves with every so often, and staying at the Tanglewood Inn was just that. We are a young couple in our late twenties and the Tanglewood Inn has become one of our favorite places to take our mini vacations. This September we came for our second stay to celebrate our Anniversary and can't wait to visit again to celebrate many more. When you first arrive to the Inn you immediately feel welcome. As you drive up to a beautiful home filled with character, the driveway leads you to park next to a small flower garden. A gigantic wrap around porch that they magically illuminate with lights and lanterns in the evening draws you inside. You are immediately greeted by Su & Andy, as well as their cute dogs Pippin & Kiko! They are fantastic hosts who do all that they can to allow you to have an enjoyable stay. Andy is always interested in answering any questions you might have about attractions and restaurants in the area. He will give you a map and any specifics you may be wondering about. This year we decided to stay in a different room then last year. We chose the York Harbor Suite which was so wonderful. The suite is spacious, cozy and tastefully decorated with hand painted artistic touches. We had our own bedroom, bathroom, living room and screened in porch! Although it was only the two of us, we got good use out of each room in the two nights we stayed. Each night falling asleep to the sound of ocean waves crashing...waking up to a crisp fresh breeze and filtered sunshine streaming through our bedroom window. The scent of hot coffee and breakfast wafting down the hallway and enchanting us to get out of our cozy bed! This is exactly what we were looking for and that's why we decided to return to the Tanglewood. Breakfast each morning was amazing and they were so accommodating. I have strict dietary restrictions which can often make traveling difficult. They were able to make a fantastic breakfast both mornings that catered to my needs and allowed everyone else staying at the Inn to also thoroughly enjoy their meal! This is a big plus to me if you are someone who suffers from allergies or dietary restrictions. The Inn is surrounded by wonderful attractions that are close by including the beaches Short Sands & Long Sands (walking distance), shops, restaurants, icecream bars, beauty spas, the Wild Kingdom Amusement Park, Animal Kingdom and Nubble Lighthouse. To top off our fantastic stay in York, Maine this year... we actually got engaged at Nubble Light! Staying at the Tanglewood, Su & Andy helped to make our engagement weekend even more perfect. We highly recommend the Inn and will definitely return in the future. The Inn is clean, cozy, relaxing, romantic and welcoming. If you are looking for a quaint trip by the ocean, I recommend trying something new and booking a room at The Inn at Tanglewood Hall!! Thank you Su & Andy for a fantastic stay!
