Read through some of the 115 five star reviews, and you will quickly see a pattern. Sue and Dennis are superlative innkeepers in many ways! They are genuine, very conversant and helpful, and they keep one of the cleanest B & B's in the universe. Spend a night or two there, and you will feel like they have been lifelong friends. It all began as we drove up and saw Sue standing on the porch steps waving and welcoming us by name. The inn is stunningly, expertly, and lovingly maintained and decorated with beautiful furnishings, pictures, moulding, trim, wallpapers, patterns. There is so much attention to detail that I hardly knew where to look first. There are multiple public rooms for guests' use, but somehow we always ended up in the light and airy sunroom. Dennis is a breakfast culinary expert, and we enjoyed every bit of every breakfast that he prepared.
We stayed in the Peacock Suite. There is so much room that we could live in the spacious Peacock Suite! There is a wet bar with sink and refrigerator, a working gas fireplace, and a built-in alcove desk. The lighting throughout the inn surpasses many B & B's, with high hat lighting in addition to table and floor lamps. There are also plenty of electrical outlets to charge all our gadgets. Beautiful quilts and throws abound throughout the suite. I appreciated the oversized Kohler pedestal sink in the bath that had room to keep toiletries right on the sink, unlike most other pedestal sinks. There was a hair dryer and thick, large white towels. I liked the combination of brown wall tile and blue painted walls in the bath. There were night lights to help with the step down into the suite. My next comment is simply an expression of a preference. We would have preferred a king size bed than a queen, and black-out blinds would have helped to diminish the 4 am sunrise light.
Without any hesitation, we recommend and suggest that you stay with Sue and Dennis if your travels take you to Lubec. It is a tiny, interesting town that represents true Maine life. We enjoyed Campobello island and the Quoddy lighthouse. Be sure to have tea with Eleanor if you tour the Campobello compound. The guides are informative, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about the Roosevelt family and the history of Campobello island. We took several enjoyable hikes during our stay. We ate at two local restaurants suggested by Sue; we liked walking to and from them, as well as traversing on all the streets looking at the architecture of other homes. I have written separate restaurant reviews on Trip Advisor. It was interesting to learn about the Summer Keys program from Sue.
Thank you, Sue and Dennis, for a beautiful experience in Lubec! We followed through with your suggestions of things to see and do as we drove from Lubec to Belfast. Roosters was a great tip!
