Summer in Maine
Everything was so thoughtful- they had bikes, a hot tub, iced coffee on tap, and even a white noise machine in the bathroom. Service was amazing!

Nice,quiet stay
Hotel was in a great location a lot of friendly staff. Hotel had some cool amenities. The room at a glance was amazing then we started noticing some things like the rug was a little stained the curtains were sun bleached. But those things were pretty minor. The pillows were a huge disappointment for me very uncomfortable. I had to go to Walmart and buy one! That was probably the worst part of the stay everything else was great. We would definitely stay there again just wish they’d get better pillows!!

Wrongful charges
The original room we were assigned to was upstairs with no elevator. We asked if there was an available room on the ground floor. We were told there was a room available downstairs but we just needed to switch over to the room next door on the 3rd night which was fine with us. We didn’t mind. And the price was lower. When we checked out there was nobody at the front desk around 6 am. I called the number for assistance and it sounded like I woke up the person i spoke to. She told me to "rest the key anywhere there in the desk". How about the bil. She said everything is fine. I called up the hotel after an hour while we were on the road. I said I didn’t get a copy of the bill. So I asked what the bill was. It was the same as the original and not the discounted price we were told for the 3 nights we stayed. As far as we are concerned, we are paying for the lower price that we were told.

Nice hotel great location
Nice small hotel close to everything! Room was clean, comfortable and cozy. Space was a bit tight and the stairs to the 2nd floor went right over our bathroom- the hotel is old, so there was a fair amount of noise. The staff was wonderful and very friendly.

I loved the location for Walking and bicycling to town for meals and the sights. Its a great place for heading in to the park by bicycle. The architecture is legit. And my room was spacious.

We went in the off season so when we checked they had a map of what park of the park was open along with which restaurant were open that time of year. It was a great walking distance from everywhere! I wish they had labeled what the breakfast items were. Overall this was a really great stay with very clean rooms and friendly staff!
