I would like to quickly point out the potential this Inn has to offer.... but my recent visit fell short based on the cost for one night stay including dinner and breakfast. We stayed in a bedroom with a private bath located in the former barn just off the main house. We had dinner reservation and each enjoyed a drink before hand from their nonor-system liquor cabinet. We also shared a bottle of champagne with a couple that joined us, plus a glass of wine. $320 for out total stay, double occupancy, one night. The room accomodations were adequate and quaint, but nothing truly special. Dinner was decent but not truly special either. We had the chef's special of seared scallops and I know suspect from the tasted, they were frozen-at-sea scallops versus fresh dry packed scallops off the coast of New England. Seeing we stayed on the coast of Maine I expected fresh catch seafood, also surprisingly no lobster offered on the menu... were we actually in Maine? A bit of a disconnect for me Reading that the chef is recognized for his worldly training and levele of succes in NYC- I didn't experience anything but the average for food preparation, presentation and flavor. Breakfast was included in the cost of the room and it was decent. They have organic free range hens but the scrambled eggs prepared fell completely flat on flavor. The pastries were somewhat homemade and somewhat baked from frozen doughs, or thawed from frozen pastries - I'm guessing since the quality was just that. Having traveled in Europe, I paid similar price range for overnight stays and received outstanding customer service and quallity food. The Inn charged $75 per person for dinner - which included a soup or salad, main entree and dessert, Originally I was excited to stay at an Inn with such an acclaimed chef/owner - sorry it didn't work for me. I feel over charged for the value we received. The owners looked very worn out and they had just reopened for the season just a week earlier than our stay.
