I will start with saying I don't normally do the Inn thing. I very much like my privacy and I'm not too inclined to chat with fellow travelers. I also don't like touristy places but alas I found myself in Boothbay Harbor and staying at The Blue Heron. Upon arrival I was very warmly greeted but I felt a little tense because I thought breakfast was going to be a formal affair, and I thought it was going to be too many people for my taste. I was also concerned that the room was going to be very loud, as it was adjacent to the breakfast room. I love being wrong! My room was an unexpected oasis. It must have been soundproofed to the hilt because I didn't hear anyone else, it was delightful. I loved the space, the cleanliness, the amenities and yes, I felt pampered and that's not something I'm used to. Carol was a gem, and once she realized that I didn't want to eat breakfast with everyone else, she brought my breakfast to me on a tray, and I ate at the little table and chairs on the back side of the inn facing the harbor right outside my door. It was wonderful! I don't know what another reviewer meant by saying the bed was terrible, mine sure wasn't, it was like sleeping on a cloud. There is only one con, I agree with another reviewer about the towels. They were very rough feeling and abrasive. I explained this to the lovely housekeeper and she brought me all new towels but they too were the same. It may be Maine's water (?) because I experienced this same thing at several other places. Regardless, great place to stay!
