          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.

          Our host was very welcoming. The place was clean throughout and very charming. The breakfast was made with care and was great. The interior is very comfortable. Located close to a few excellent restaurants. Great conversation, too. The only nitpick I have is that our...More

          This is tough to review because the hostess was very gracious and the breakfast was excellent. The room was spacious and we had everything we needed. However, as others have said, the private baths are across the hall and the house is extremely dated. The...More

          Thank you Ronald for your feedback - it's always helpful when planning improvements. Which is happening this fall, after the season ends, and the hall carpeting is scheduled for replacement. Wear and rear does happen. In an older house, dating back a hundred years or...More

          As others have stated, it's quirky, it's dated, it could probably use some upgrades and sprucing up here and there, but I'd stay again in a heartbeat. Arriving on MDI with no place to stay on the Sat night of Labor Day weekend, Gretchen answered...More

          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
