OK, so the other 2 reviews on here are for the trailers I cannot speak for those as we(My bf and I) just spent the weekend at the B n B portion. This is no high end b n b by any means but when you are only paying 65 dollars for the night and that includes breakfast(for TWO for the basic queen bed room) then you have to keep your expectations down. For us it was completely fine. We stayed here 2 nights for a dirt biking trail ride event. When you first walk in there is a smell of "old" I guess musty kinda smell, mostly just downstairs on main floor upstairs where the rooms are I didn't noticed it but then maybe my nose had adjusted by the time I got up there. The room was ok, my only complaint would be the top blanket looked like a cat had been sleeping on it(which there was a cat roaming around the house), We just threw the top blanket in the closet immediately like we would do at any level of hotel. The pillows and sheets were fine, soft and comfy, no problem there, mattress was only ok nothing great but we were so exhausted each night we slept fine. Each room has a window mounted modern A/C unit. There is no wifi, no tv, no radio etc but who cares I'm up in Madawaska to be outside and active(again you get what you pay for) There is a balcony upstairs you can sit out outside on. Yes everything needs updating, its old, but everything is usable, the shower was fine, clean, lots of hot water and pressure, It's all we needed nothing more. The breakfast both mornings was good, eggs, bacon, toast, home fries and orange juice and coffee day 1, large homemade waffle, bacon, juice, coffee day two, no complaints we were very full each morning, another guy didn't want the waffle so they made him a hard boiled egg upon request....... The best part about the place was that on the Sunday they didn't make us check out in the morning we rode our dirt bikes all day and at 3pm they let us come back and shower and get changed for our drive home, that was very nice and much appreciated!!
so yah all I can say is "you get what you pay for" ...if your snobby/prissy and want your 4-5 star resorts don't stay here......if your ok with rustic, older, needs updating kinda place but still perfectly usable for a budget price then it will be fine... The grounds are worn down somewhat, playground is lacking, but its nice as its right on the waterfront and we went down to the sandy area and the lake there is great, clean, sandy beach area. Again this is review on the BnB portion not the camp ground or trailers can't comment on those...... I would stay here again next year for this particular weekend dirt bike event no problem..... I would have actually given this place a 3 but 3 denotes average I wouldn't consider it "average" but I also don't really consider it "poor" I would just state "below the average" bnb . I have an open mind and I'm not a picky person as long as everything works, is clean and there is no bugs(which I did not see in the house other then the odd mosquito that got in) and the bed doesn't have a spring in my back I'm fine if the price is cheap. If I was paying 120 a night for this place it would be a horrible deal....but I didn't!
