I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience briefly staying at the Elm Cottage, a vegan / vegetarian Bed & Breakfast in Searsport, Maine (near Belfast). Meeting the proprietor Janet felt like getting back in touch with a long lost, caring relative. We were extremely late to arrive, and she waited up for us and even called to check on us, then escorted us up to our beautifully decorated room (with private shower/bathroom) for a peaceful evening in.
The next morning, we awoke to her kindness and a breakfast the likes of which I've never seen. Vegan eggs benedict with homemade jam, freshly baked muffins, hot tea and coffee, freshly picked blueberries, and more! Just thinking about it is making me hungry. Everything was a treat.
Janet introduced us to her various rescued pets around the house; her passion is clearly animal rescue! Her kind heart shines in everything she does, and every treasure in the house (from an original Alexander Calder serigraph to all kinds of interesting books!). We strolled around the grounds and indulged in Maine's beautiful coast, breathing the fresh air and enjoying the quiet.
We cherished our time at the Elm Cottage & would recommend any animal lover / vegan / vegetarian check it out for a totally unique B&B experience. Her clean, warm cottage was very inviting and helped make our cross-country trip very memorable. And I wish I had Janet's recipes!More
