WONDERFUL.......!!!!!!!!!!!!: Home away from home......except we don't put real flowers on the our breakfast table !! What a great place to stay/visit ! Friendly staff who seem to pay attention to all the details that make the difference between a run of the mill inn & a special place to stay.We have stayed( as airline crew ) all over the world & have never found such comfortable,relaxing & clean accommodation.Comfortable beds with extra pillows & a fantastic breakfast( crispy bacon,scrambled eggs & fresh fruit ) !! Great advice from the staff on where to eat ! A traveler could not ask for more ! Pet friendly rooms available & pathways through the woods next door = doggy heaven ! After years of staying at other establishments in Bangor,we will not go anywhere else for our monthly visits !!
