Booked a romantic getaway for anniversary and visiting the area. As UNH alumni, the location was close (20 min) for a visit. Also in reasonable proximity to drive (20min) to the outlets in Kittery. The rooms are beautiful- well appointed with excellent attention to detail and nice bedding. Each is very unique- so don't get too concerned if the exact room you think you want is not available. We stayed in the LakeHeath Lodge room on the third floor. It was so cozy, nice sitting area in front of fireplace...felt like your private lodge. There is street level noise from traffic, so if this bothers you, you might want to consider this. The common areas in the inn are nice. Full breakfast is served which was modified a bit as we were there during the ice storm which impacted power in the whole region for a period of time. Extra attention we noted included- details in rooms, plush robes, attention to decorating in common areas, 24 hour beverage center with coffees/water etc on first floor. The town provides many nice shops, galleries and eateries. Excellent cholatier just across the street. We have told friends and will be back....p.s. Name will be changing soon.
