They made the stay comfortable and gave us everything we needed while giving us the privacy we hoped for. Their son, Jackson, was also the well informed host...

We are so glad that you chose the Samuel Durfee House for your weekend getaway. The room you stayed in is the Ida Lewis Room and is our most popular this time of year since it has a private deck! Thanks for sharing your experience with others!

The Samuel Durfee House and the hosts, Michael and Heather dePinho was a superb place to spend our 35th anniversary. The rooms were immaculate, the bed was very comfortable, the food magnificent. Both Michael and Heather were so helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend this B & B to anyone coming to this area.

This is the best B and B I have ever stayed in. The innkeepers are so generous! There is a real parking lot (does not require a ten-point turn). Breakfast is fresh and delicious. The bathrooms are magically large and modern. Stay there if you can.

Heather and Michael are wonderful hosts and they accommodated our needs. Our stay was comfortable and refreshing...the food was wonderful and there was a beautiful white lilac bush right outside of my window. We had the option of opening the windows which was nice and refreshing as an option to the central AC. So glad we chose Samuel Durfee House!...
