Having purchased a Living Social visit to the Black Horse Inn in Lincolnville, we decided to visit the area midweek. What a pleasant hotel and proprietor. We were warmly welcomed by the very hospitable Francesca. This is under new ownership as of a year ago and she has done wonders with this site. Our room was very roomy, light and airy and overlooked the large back yard with pool and hot tub. Each room has a large bed, refrigerator and microwave, TV (but no hair dryer). The restaurant isn't open yet, though a very full continental breakfast is included in the nightly rate (bagels, cereal, muffins, juice, fresh fruit etc). Our Living Social inculded a dinner, Spaghetti and Meatballs.....however this wasn't just a plain old pasta dinner!! Francesca was born in Italy (Sicily) and lived much of her life there and is she ever a terrific cook. We had lovely horsdoerves, perfect 'a la dente' pasta and very tasty meatballs....and eggplant parm on the side....as well as a very full salad....we couldn't have asked for more. Francesca chatted with us about her cooking, Italian heritage and her love of what she does....what an interesting stay this was. I only hope she can get her kitchen and dining room open to the public. We enjoyed the gardens with fresh herbs and huge Dahlias among other things. We highly recommend the Black Horse Inn. Close to Camden and Lincolnville and all the interesting sites along Rt. 1.
