Many rooms feature gas fireplaces, spa tubs, and private porches. Each room has been individually decorated in consultation with Ethan Allen's local design center, and original fine artwork from our favorite Maine galleries is displayed throughout the property. Guests will enjoy not only a complimentary full breakfast, but also our popular Afternoon Refreshments with freshly baked goods from our own kitchen. Free parking, smoke-free, and pet-free.
