We were able to have a suite for a family of 3. The service desk clerk was friendly and the room was clean and fantastic! My only complaint would be it had a small tub/shower, but that is minimal! It was a fabulous place to stay.

quiet, clean inn with a stellar view of the small harbor in the bay with Fort Knox as your backdrop. After dark, you get the bonus view of the lighted bridge. Walking distance to down home restaurants and coffee in a downeast town. Inn did everything in safety guidelines for COVID 19.
