When my husband and I were poor college students at the
University of Maine, we looked at the BHI from afar and wondered
if we would ever be able to afford to stay there. Our dream finally came true this summer. We stayed in a king room with balcony in the Oceanfront Lodge and couldn't have been happier. The room was lovely and the view of Frenchman's Bay from the balcony was spectacular. (I will attach a photo of the sunrise later.) We joined a group of eight for dinner in the main restaurant (I don't recall the name) and all were happy with their meals. I should add that we made the reservation that morning to celebrate a friend's completion of a coast-to-coast bike ride for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and the dining staff couldn't have been more accomodating. They went out of their way to make the evening special including a window table overlooking the bay.
My only surprise with the BHI was the lobby, a large square room. I expected a grand entrance that would match the exterior and grounds of the BHI. If that's my only "complaint", well, you get the picture.
