My father got married in Maine and wanted all his kids to be there to be a part of it. We decided to go the more cost-effective route of driving to Maine from Port Charlotte, FL rather than flying. My sister has a 2 year old son who we were bringing along and we didn't want to put him through the discomfort of sitting on a straight drive and wanted to have a point where her and I (the drivers on the journey) could get a little shut eye to avoid the risk of being affected by heavy eyelids on the highway. We plotted out the half-way point between Port Charlotte and Lincoln, Maine and settled on this property.
We stayed at this property both on the way to and on the way back from Maine, and we were all quite pleased with the stay. We only stayed the night each time and got up early the next morning to continue our seemingly never-ending drive so I can't really speak about the area or the amenities aside from what we experienced ourselves.
What I can say is that the room we had was clean and the beds were pretty comfortable. The staff was very friendly. I got to speak to the owner, Neil, and he was a super nice guy. My sister always brings a couple pillows with her when she travels and she forgot them in the room when we left the first time. She called the property from the road when she realized it and asked if they could hold on to the pillows for her since we would be making our way back through to stay there on the way back. Neil had the pillows waiting for us when we checked in on the way back.
I'd definitely stay at this property again in the future and would also recommend it to anyone passing through who needs a nice place to stay.
