We stayed at this B&B for two nights in October. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and we were looking for something special.
We checked in at 3pm. You cannot enter this Inn unless you are staying there. We rang the bell and both Andy and Su came to greet us. They wished us "happy anniversary" as I mentioned that when I booked this place in August. It was a nice touch that they remembered.
They showed us around and to our room. We booked the Billiard Room. It was beautiful, so warm and cozy. The bed was really comfortable and there was a little gas fireplace. It was a nice touch. They left us some candy and a jar of Maine blueberry jam with a hand written note "happy anniversary" It also had a mini fridge.
The room and the whole inn was really clean. The only thing we didn't like was that there were no individual tv's in the rooms. I guess that would spoil the whole premise of the B&B. To socialize and meet new people. It wasn't a big deal. The only time I would have liked it was late at night and very early in the morning.
The Inn itself is so well decorated. The breakfast area table was set beautifully and you had your choice of coffee, teas, hot chocolate & cookies and you could help yourself throughout the day. They made a homemade hot item every morning plus we had homemade muffins, granola and some fruits plus bagels, toast and english muffins. Su and Andy really took the time to make sure that you were comfortable and that you had everything you needed to make your stay enjoyable. They were really helpful with directions on a rainy day. We filled our day with all their suggestions.
The Inn was always well lit. You were given two keys upon check in. One for your room and one for the massive front door. The porch was lit with white lights. Every room had many lights on and a lot of flameless candles. One night after a rainy day the fire was going. Just a warm and cozy feel. I enjoyed meeting the other guests. It was a really great B&B experience. Our first.
I would definitely stay here again without hesitation
