Amenities

Staff – This was one of my first stays during the last year and both my husband and I felt very safe at the hotel. Active CDC protocols were in place and everyone respected mask wearing and social distancing. The staff is extremely helpful and welcoming. All of our requests were answered quickly and efficiently.

Just off the reception area there is 24hr coffee, tea and afternoon cookies. A movie library offers a vast array of titles.

Infinity pool overlooking Penobscot Bay.

The heated infinity edge pool is one of the prettiest I have seen in New England. Gentle breezes keep the trees reflecting in the water; beyond, the ocean view sets the coastal theme front and center.

Adjacent to the pool, a steaming hot tub is the spot for a soak when temperatures start to drop, or you need to relax after completing one of the many hikes in the area.

Additional water access to a small, mostly rocky beach is via a private staircase on the edge of the property. Those looking for tokens of their visit might be rewarded with a few shells or perhaps a rare piece of seaglass.

Spa area with fireplace and couches

The bottom level of the pool building houses a spa including sauna, massage room and a living room with fireplace. I imagine it would be a great spot for an extended family gathering.

Parking is available in the adjacent lot. If your room is in one of the outbuildings, there is adjacent parking for each of the units.

The property offers several package rates throughout the season. Often called one of the Best Hotels in Maine for Couples, be sure to check their web site for the current availabilities.
