My wife, 18 month-old son and I just spent a long weekend in the Greek room. Since we were driving from the City on a Friday evening, Caryn stayed up to greet us on our arrival at about 11:30pm and get us settled before going back to bed. So do ask about late check in if you need it.
All of the "policies" to keep the unique environment and vibe of the place may initially seem a bit annoying, but they really served to reset and recharge us. The place truly is immaculately clean. Cleaner that almost every other place I've ever stayed. And everything, I mean everything, at the inn has a detailed enviro-conscious story behind it, including the construction/renovation of the place. You could learn an awful lot about green construction and home improvement here. All of the provided bath and body products are very high-end and there were a few nice surprises we hadn't seen before in the store and will check out. If we needed something not in the room it was provided free of charge for us to use while there. They were more than happy to accommodate us by putting out a thermos of milk for our son at bedtime. It was all exactly what we wanted from a trip to the area.
It's a perfect place for someone who wants to enjoy some good clean living for a few days while in a very comfortable and friendly environment. Our hosts were happy to chat with us, recommend area activities, and listen to us blather on endlessly if we felt like it.
The jet spa tub was a real treat. Breakfast each morning was wholesome and prepared you for the day, not for a nap because you're stuffed and bloated! There's so much artwork on the wall and nice appointments at every corner. Something will surely appeal to you.
The inn is also literally steps away from the beginning of the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail, an 11-mile paved path heading south alongside a small river, hills, and wetlands. Perfect for running or biking.
My only minor complaint is that there is no sofa in the common/dining area to relax in the evenings. There is a lovely porch with comfy rockers where we drank our wine and wound down the day.
