  • We are a senior couple cycling by tandem up to Canada. We would need a place to store our tandem overnight. Can you accomodate this?
    Hello, Thanks for your message and your question. We do not have any covered place to store your bike overnight. You could lock it up next to the house, but it would be exposed to the elements.

  • Hi there ..we are traveling from Ga to Acadia Nat'l Part at the end of August .. with our handicapped dog. Would be interested in staying with you. Do you have ground floor room available? August 26 for that night.
    Hi, Unfortunately, none of our rooms are on the first floor, so we are probably not a great fit for you. As this is an old house, there are a lot of stairs. I would recommend the Hawthorne, across the street as they have elevators. Enjoy your trip.

  • I need to book room on first floor, I believe it’s called The Boston. How can I make sure to book this room?
    I'm sorry, but we do not any guest rooms located on the first floor. All of our guest rooms are on the 2nd floor (except for one on the third floor) and require about 16 steps to reach. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Sincerely, Matt
