The Greenwood Manor Inn is a quintessential New England B&B located in the Lake Sebago region of Maine about 1 hr 20 min west of Portland Maine. This is our second year staying at the Inn when up visiting our son at a nearby camp. Frankly I don't see us staying anyplace else (we are booked for 2015). Anyway, the Inn sits on a large property with a gorgeous garden, fire area and hammock. There is a river across the road (although you really can't see it in the summer) and a lake about a block away (area is covered in lakes). The Inn has 9ish rooms and looks like you'd expect a traditional Maine B&B to look with a dining area (inside and outside) and common area. While the Inn is great the Innkeepers - Barb and her husband Ray - really make the place special. Some of the nicest, most hospitable and gracious folks you will meet. They really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The other guests at the Inn have also been all return guests (which speaks for itself) and it's great seeing the relationships between the guests who have gotten to know each other over the years and with Barb and Ray. Such a different feel than the usual anonymous hotel experience. Breakfasts are also out of this world. Pancakes, eggs, pastries, fruit - mmmmmmm - Barb knows her stuff!
