There are not enough words to express our first stay/experience at The Tipsy Butler. It was perfection. It was a weekend getaway for a birthday party. Myself, my wife and 2 great friends arrived Friday April 20 2012 around 6pm. We were meet outside by Sarah the innkeeper. From the minute we met her we loved her. We hadnt entered the Inn and we already felt like we were at home. Sarah made us feel very comfortable. She took us inside and gave us the full tour of the Inn and explained everything in detail. Unlike other Inns and hotels that had rules Sarah only had 2 demands. Her first demand was, she wanted us to make ourselves at home. Her second demand was, if we needed anything, all we had to do is ask.
There is no formal "check in" at the Tipsy Butler. Sarah wants you to feel like your at home. You walk in get the tour, chat for a min, then go to your room. Sarah and her husband Tony are always at the Inn, but you would never know it. They do not bother you at all. We were lucky enough to have the entire Inn to ourselves for the weekend. And it was very relaxing and comfortable.
Both mornings we were greeted by the most delicious breakfasts. If you have the chance ask for the sweet corn quiech. Nothing better!!!!!! The Inn was absolutly meticulous. Not a peice of dust anywhere. Bathrooms spotless. Living room very cozy. The dining room was very homey. Fresh coffee and tea all day. The most comfortable beds anywhere. The walls of the common room are lined with board games, books, trip planning magazines and many DVDs. Beside the exit/entrance there are rain slickers and umbrellas as well as picnic blankets and baskets. Sarah has sure thought of it all!
Sarah was very knowledgeable of the area and gave us much needed advice about what to do and see while in Damariscotta. It is a 5 minute walk to downtown Damariscotta where there is a lot to do. Lots of great resturants and pubs within walking distance.
It is a great place to stay if you are looking for a comfortable and cozy B&B. Dont think twice. Stay here and you will not have any regrets. We have already planned our July and Oct. getaways here. Thank you Sarah and Tony it was a pleasure. You made us feel like we were right at home. Your Friends from Waltham Ma.
