This B & B (which no longer offers breakfast) was reccommended to us by the US Border Control when we crossed into Maine from Canada. Despite the rain, it was clear that this old barn had been lovingly restored to provide small but very comfortable bedrooms with private bathrooms. Fruit juices and other cold drinks are available all day and there is a sitting room with comfy chairs and sofas to read or watch television. In addition there is a huge beautifully decorated room with a large table where you can enjoy or share your personal food. As we stayed in late October it was very cold outside but more than adequately heated within.
The owner was very helpful, pointing us to food and walks the following morning. Unfortunately we had a problem with the toilet in our room and were instantly offered the facilities of another room. Additionally, the owner deducted a third from our bill to compensate for the inconvenience (we didn't realise until we were home and checked our statement) which was quite unnecessary but a lovely gesture.
The morning revealed the beautiful setting of Tranquility Lodge, on the edge of the lake with birds and wildlife. A little gem.
