We always enjoy staying at this charming inn when we visit Maine. The rooms are nicely furnished, the area is beautiful, and we have always been comfortable here whether visiting in summer or winter. Barb and Ray are most gracious; they make us feel so welcome that it's like visiting old friends. The rooms are clean, the breakfasts are delicious, and it's easy to appreciate and enjoy nature with the outdoor covered dining area and backyard fire pit. This past weekend, while talking with Ray in the dining room, we were treated to the rare sight of a male wild turkey on their large back lawn, fanning his feathers to attract the turkey hens nearby. For the record, the hens appeared to be ignoring the display. Like others, we just hope that the inn doesn't become TOO popular because staying here is a highlight of our trips north.
