We stayed here for one night in early April and paid $95 after tax. The rooms were basic with fake wood panelling (my husband’s initial reaction was ‘why did you book a dormitory?’) The bathrooms were clean and the service was excellent. They served an outstanding breakfast with scrambled eggs and hotcakes in addition to the usual continental foods. Their breads and bagels were particularly yummy.
The best part of the ‘guest house’ is its grounds. There is a short walk around the various shrines – they give you a pamphlet to explain these – The walk also includes several magnificent views across the river to Kennebunk. They hold Mass regularly (we are not the church going types so I can’t comment on the church or service).
Come here if you like to meditate but don’t expect a modern or classy room.
