My husband surprised me with a visit to the Blue Hill Inn and it was everything we wanted for a special weekend away.
From the moment we walked through the door, we were greeted with a smile by everyone and experienced delightful service from all the staff. Our room was delightful, with the most comfortable comforter and pillows I've ever known, which felt like sleeping on a cloud, and the wood burning fireplace warmed up the chilly evening with a romantic touch.
After exploring the town, my husband took a nap and I lay in the hammock in the inn's garden and read a book from their bookcase, then we visited the lobby parlour for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres before going out for dinner (the most delicious brie en croute ever!).
Wherever we turned there was a friendly face and a smile. The owner, Sara, was always present and we found her to be a wonderful and very hands-on owner who mingles with her guests and tends to their comfort.
Breakfast fare is simply delicious and almost worth the five hour drive from home to start the day with the chef's wonderful bread pudding, pancakes and other goodies.
We will certainly return the the Blue Hill Inn when we come back to this beautiful part of the world.
