We had the pleasure of spending a week at the Yardarm this past May. It was our first visit to the Inn and my wife's first visit to Maine. We had anticipated arriving on a Monday, planning two days for our drive from Virginia to Maine, but we got ahead and ended up arriving in one day. Prior to getting to Maine we called the Inn to see if they could accommodate us a day early and they were gracious enough to have us come in that Sunday evening.
From the moment we arrived Bev and Scott welcomed us like we had been there many times before. It was like seeing good friends again. Our room which was a suite was very nicely appointed and offered more than enough room for us to relax when we were not out and about. The bed was absolutely awesome. Better than any bed we have slept in including the one at our home. The Inn's furnishing were beautiful and matched the architectural period of the Inn.
Each morning we went downstairs and were greeted with wonderful fresh muffins and fruit, coffee and tea. We decided to eat each breakfast on the spacious and inviting front porch where we were able to get a glimpse of the ocean. On the couple of days we decided to venture out of Ogunquit Scott was kind enough to help plot our route by providing maps and giving great suggestions of places to stop, shop and eat.
The location of the Yardarm is perfect. Walking distance from Perkins Cove and downtown. We walked more on this vacation than any other and it was great to be able to leave the car and enjoy the scenery while on foot. Some evenings we decided on a bottle of wine from the Yardarm store. The variety of wines is very good and the prices were on the mark. Not inflated as one might expect and find at other places.
As for the worst part of our experience...the end of vacation. It was difficult the final morning to pack things up and prepare to travel back to Virginia. For a week we felt relaxed and amongst friends. The beauty of the Yardarm, the hospitality of Bev and Scott and the reasonable rates made this the best vacation we have experienced in years. The upside is planning our return next May when we will again make our vacation home at the Yardarm. This is a great B&B and we encourage those interested in a restful and beautiful vacation to stay at the Yardarm.
