As we pulled in the driveway late last Friday night (after 9:30 p.m.), the last diners were departing as Mary Ann and the staff were closing up the Inn's highly regarded french restaurant. "We were worried about you!" she exclaimed. "So glad you are here. Welcome to our home!" As our two-day stay revealed, her warmth was genuine, and she and Manuel's six-room Inn was a wonderfully comfortable and relaxing place to stay, in spite of the summer thunderstorms and driving rain that accompanied our delayed arrival. The room was large and comfortably appointed, the bath, roomy and squeaky clean, the common sitting area on the second floor well-furnished and with round-the-clock coffee service, and a medley of baked treats from Manuel's ovens. We left the balcony doors open both nights, and slept soundly in the crisp night air, eschewing the noise of the available A/C unit. The room is also equipped with a fireplace for colder seasons.
While the "Bed" part of the deal was superb, the "Breakfast" part was out of this world! A beautifully-plated fruit course, a baked treat, and a goblet of orange juice, plus Mary Ann, greeted us both mornings on the sunny front porch. Saturday's breakfast entre was a delicious, surprisingly light crab and cheese quiche. Maine means seafood! And Sunday's entre was "blueberry french toast," which presented much like a bread-pudding, drizzled in maple syrup. Late-July Maine also means wild blueberries.
Throughout our stay, Mary Ann was our solicitous guide, with great suggestions about area attractions, which we took advantage of around the wedding schedul that had brought us here. And Manuel greeted us at breakfast on Sunday to ensure our satisfaction with his morning meals.
Our only regret? We did not have dinner in the restaurant, and the menu suggests delectable French cuisine. We'll be back!
