Wonderful inn. Wonderful innkeepers. We had the most memorable trip we could have asked for. Peter and Janis are phenomenal hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay special. Breakfast, rooms, location, everything was spectacular. Per my daughter, "Maine is the best state ever, and they serve the most amazing breakfast here!" We will miss you for sure.
