In this stunning home on an overlook of crashing waves lives the most beautiful soul. Carol and her late husband Bill built their home with love and everywhere you look it shows. Breathtaking views from every window and a warm and loving atmosphere from the hug she greeted us with to the beautiful breakfast. Anyone planning to be in the... More

We arrived in Yarmouth having taken the CAT ferry from Portland Maine. It was late in the evening and dark but the directions on the web site were perfect. Carol the proprietor had told us we should expect to arrive at her home around 10:00pm that evening. Carol met each of us at the front door with a hug. Her... More

My wife and I stayed at A la Maison d'Amitie on the night of July 15, 2016. At first we had a difficult time finding the location as the signs did not standout and my GPS didn't quite find the location. In the end the directions on the B&B website should be printed out and followed. Once we arrived, A... More

Carol was amazing, almost more amazing than the breathtaking views she's provided to her guests for so many years. The area was not hard to get to, the house and grounds very charming, and the amenities plentiful, including a lovely breakfast. But the hostess is truly a gem, and even after having cooked breakfast, she encouraged interaction with us and... More

The best and only good thing of this B&B is the breathtaking picture/advertisement of the house. Pretty much two places you suppose to stay under Carol's roof; i.e, your own room and outside of the house on the deck. The moment we entered the house, Carol's daughter gave us house rules, must wear socks or slippers not to damaging the... More
