The Maple Hill Farm Inn is a gem outside the small town of Hallowell and city of Augusta. TA reviewers suggested this as a good alternative to places in Augusta and my wife and I are glad we landed here. Arrived around dinner time, for an overnight stay, from our couple of days riding bikes on Carriage Trails of Mount Desert Island (Bar Harbor area), Maine. It was previously a farm turned into a conference centre, where many organizations come for the day. The day we left was hosting pharmacists. Conference leaders might stay overnight. Saw other business people on their way somewhere, like us. There's still a barn on site with animals, including several hens, goats, and llamas. We went to visit them in the morning before we continued our trip to Montreal, where we were to stay one night, before heading back to Toronto. Breakfast was delicious. Two innkeepers are very friendly, and serve up farm fresh eggs, from their own hens. Pancakes and other things on the menu, which you get to pick from (included in price of the pom). Breakfast came really fast, which was great, because we wanted to make tracks. It's an environmentally-friendly establishment, sun-generated energy. Room was comfortable. Took a Queen bed (rather than King, which we prefer) because price was better and we were only staying one night. Ate a nice, tasty, dinner at Joyce's on main Hallowell strip. Nice patio out back overlooking the river. Across the street was Slates Rest, which also looked nice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our reviews say it all. Serving the Augusta Maine area, Maple Hill Farm is a small boutique hotel (an intimate country inn, if you'd like to call us that!) that perfectly combines true eco-consciousness, country serenity, relaxing comfort, and fine amenities. Surrounded by acres of rolling fields and woods, including an active bird feeder and a barn full of llamas and chickens, we were named "One of the Best 5 Green Hotels and Inns" in New England by Yankee magazine in 2017, and also Maine's first certified "Environmental Leader" green lodging establishment with a huge solar electric array plus solar hot water and its own wind turbine. Huge double whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, and private decks accentuate some guest rooms. A sauna and outdoor hot tub beckon the guest to truly relax, along with full bar service, a full breakfast cooked to order, and personalized attention. EV charging stations, too! ... more less
