Visited Maine in March, out of season so despite the wonderful, unseasonal weather, most places were closed. Finally we found the Lambs Mill Inn, up a country lane in a superb location. It was also "closed" (the owners on vacation) but their house-sitter, Donna, took pity on us and let us stay anyway. What a lovely, interesting house! Part old, part new, all beautifully maintained, furnished and decorated. Lovely rooms (we had our pick!) with all mod cons. Fabulous grounds too - if you're lucky (we weren't) you might even spot visiting moose or even bears!
Donna was so welcoming, made sure we had everything we could possibly want (she made an early morning trip to the local store to get us fresh food for breakfast) and we enjoyed a great evening in her company. From what she (and other reviewers here) say, the owners are great hosts too. If you're looking for a beautiful, peaceful spot to stay in Maine, within easy reach of the lakes and the coast, this is it!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Lambs Mill Inn is a charming country bed and breakfast, built in the 1860s. The farmhouse has been updated with 6 cozy rooms, all with private baths. A common area with large TV is available and two dining rooms serve guests a full country breakfast. In summer and weather permitting, breakfast is served on the expansive deck which overlooks the field and woods. Bird feeders adorn the crabapple tree just off the deck which affords a wonderful view for birdwatching. You can often find our guests sitting on the deck having cocktails or wine and appetizers in the late afternoon. Just off the field are trails for walking and enjoying the woods. Only a short 20 minute walk to the village shops and restaurants and the lake. The inn is the only inn owned by an artist whose paintings can be found in all the rooms. Lambs Mill Inn owners are known for their friendliness and incredible breakfasts. If you are looking for a quiet stay for recharging your energies and enjoying the wildlife you are likely to see, this is the place for you. Sometimes you may even see a moose crossing the field. Parking is available and if you have a bike the barn is a great place to stash it. You will find the pampering, the tranquility and the old-fashioned ambiance you are looking for at Lambs Mill Inn. ... more less
