    Great place to stay, very close to Acadia and priced very well. Stayed at the B&B on a trip to Acadia, Gretchen was very helpful and nice. I would recommend this place over and over and will stay there again when I come back.

    This is not a B & B. Very overpriced for the conditions. The photos on the website are very misleading. Very dirty, smelly, carpeting disgustingly dirty, hair in food, bathrooms are either across the landing of the front stairs or down the hall. Got bug...More

    I'm so sorry that Virginia's expectations were not met but I do appreciate her feedback. As I plan for the future it's helpful to hear guest's impressions. Staying at a B and B is always an interesting and unique experience and long time guests will...More
