This is our third stay at The Claremont. Each has been deeply satisfying, quiet and calming. Our room, the same for the last two years, overlooks Somes Sound. The are boating sounds from time to time--the chug of working lobster boats, the occasional power pleasure boar, and the silent passage of sailing craft.
The breakfast room is sunny yellow, overlooks the water and is staffed by cheerful young staff many from Eastern Europe. We have had charming wait staff each year. The food is always plentiful and excellent. The 'full breakfast' is everything offered for breakfast on your own plate--eggs, sausage, pancakes, etc, hearty and tasty. Plus a cold buffet of pastry, cereal and fruit. The strawberries this year were thrilling.
Coffee is out in the lobby by 6am for the early risers like us which provides a nice easy awakening: go fetch coffee, return to bed and read quietly until breakfast; couple with the sound of the harbor waking up and you have something nearing perfection.
