Near Acadia National Park, bear Bay Area, relaxing, old classic style, comfortable

Beautiful property with friendly, helpful staff who are committed to making sure you enjoy your stay.

The property is beautiful in an antique kind of way. The green well manicured lawn, the blue water, the well placed chairss, are all so inviting for peace and relaxation The delicious breakfast was served in the beautiful dining room with an exquisite view of the water and lawns, But the bedrooms are too outdated to be comfortable. My room #121 could accommodate neither desk nor a pair of chairs. And come on, we do like a room TV also.

Simply beautiful, there’s a boat house at the end of the lawn overlooking the lake where dinner is served in the evening the dinner was fabulous with wine coffee and desert and the view of the lake was nice, the house was like stepping back into the Victorian age there’s a long porch with rockers and tables overlooking the lake. I would come again.

Our stay was excellent. We had a wonderful view of the bay and the breeze came in during the day and evening and kept the room cool. Breakfast was wonderful each day and the boathouse was enjoyable each afternoon. The staff was knowledgeable with suggestions for us to fill our days. Anything we needed, they were able to accommodate. The best part was the mornings and afternoons sitting on the porch facing the bay. Now this is what a vacation is all about !!

In the past I stayed at this place many times I returned again.

I loved the character of the place, there was some WiFi trouble and they could make some minor upgrades that would improve their performance in my book. New shower heads, and a fresh coat of paint. Overall it was a very charming and lovely stay

Really enjoyed our stay and hope to return. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

Was very pleased with finding this hidden place, Was on a beautiful spot right on the water, Many places to sit & enjoy the scenes. As I had read in previous reviews...The walls are thin...and you do hear conversations (or snoring) coming from the next room. The only complaint was the breakfast the next day, The staff seemed overwhelmed by everyone showing up for breakfast, and took awhile to get our food. Tables were not prepared before hand with Salt & Pepper, or sugar & cream, Took awhile to receive them, then when my husband wanted ketchup to go with his homefries, the waitress came back and said she could "not find any"?! But the food was delicious! Would definately recommend this beautiful place & would stay here again!!

Thank you for staying at our property. We are grateful for your feedback. None of our rooms have ever had televisions and that adds to the ability to get away from it all. We thank you for your business and taking the time to write a review.
