Reserved a room on short notice to attend a memorial service in Castine at MMA. We were not familiar with the area and also needed an early arrival time. We were so pleasantly surprised at how friendly and accommodating the folks were. Definitely makes us want to return.

We were very impressed with the hotel, room and beautiful view out our window. We loved the furniture in the room. The four poster bed was so nice. We opened the windows at night. The refreshing breeze off the bay was great.
