My family needed a place to celebrate our parents 65th wedding anniversary. What a blessing when we discovered The Garden Inn at Bee Rock just 20 miles from where our folks live. It was an easy trip for them, and a wonderful spot for the 18 of us coming in from 4 different states. We booked the Inn for two... More

This place is amazing. As they say on their website it is less than 5 minutes from the interstate but feels like you are completely in the country side. It is a beautiful and peaceful place. The owners are beyond gracious and helpful. They spoil you with the hospitality, wonderful breakfast, and tasty evening desserts (homemade pies and cakes!). The... More

I have stayed at the inn twice now and hope to go back. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that, as other reviewers have mentioned, the TV is tiny; also, the jacuzzi, while lovely, is just a little small for two people. Honestly, though, those are extremely small quibbles, because you know when you... More

The Garden Inn was the best Bed and Breakfast of the 15+ inns where we have stayed from Florida to Maine! Tastefully decorated, spotless, comfortable, quiet! Being sensitive to odors, I was thrilled with the pure clean air rather than a perfumed scent of candles. It was a joy to awaken to the aroma of coffee brewing! Breakfast tasted delicious!... More

Once again we were made to feel very much at home, comfortable and pampered by Mike and Mirtha. Mirtha even helped me scrape snow and ice off my car. The food was fine and they were very helpful in setting up the wedding reception for my niece. Thanks! Jane Day
