An old house that doesn't feel old at all. Ultra-clean and comfortable room, comfortable mattress, well-maintained home and property. Felt more like a 4-star hotel than a B&B. Highly recommend.
Location, location, location ! Walking distance to the beach, beautiful Marginal Way, fabulous Perkins Cove, many shops and restaurants. Jerry made us feel very welcome. Our room was immaculate and it is very evident that the owners take great pride in their property. The gardens, including a beautiful water garden, are spectacular. Great breakfast of fruit salad, juice, lemon cake and Belgian waffles with Maine blueberries was superb. Very good experience !
Charles' and David's home is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the quaint town of Ogunquit. Situated in the best area between the two busy ends of town, Dragonfly provides a quiet respite at the end of a fun day at the beach. Everything one needs is provided- beach chairs, towels and umbrellas (in case you are lucky enough to walk the Marginal Way on a stormy day). But best of all is the extraordinary attention one receives from Charles and David. It was truly on outstanding stay.
When I first booked this b&b, I wasn't sure about what to expect. As soon as we met Ray, we had no more doubt. He did his best to make us feel comfortable and to help us explore the area as real locals. Rooms are adorable. Breakfast great- especially for the home-made muffins. My boyfriend and I will always keep a great memory of this place and of the amazing person we met. Old Orchard Beach made sense only because of this b&b. I highly recommend it.
Even nicer than pics on website. Our 2-room suite with veranda overlooking the harbor and water was comfortable, very relaxing, and more beautiful than we had expected. Service was very cordial and attentive.
The Inn Keepers are extremely accommodating and hospitable. Their management compliments the beautiful estate, we stayed in as well as the well-kept rooms. We highly recommend the Hartwell House to anyone looking to stay in Ogunquit.
It has been a wonderful & fantastic spending a few days in Maine at the Dockside hotel. The people are extremely friendly and willing to assist on anyting you may require & need. Really great
Charlene was wonderful! She had our room ready a bit early and was so attentive to everyone at breakfast. She works very hard to ensure a pleasurable experience. The food was carefully prepared and very good. Our room had a small kitchen area which we loved for snacks and lunch. Location was great; a short walking distance to Perkins Cove and used the trolley to go to the beach. Very pleased with our stay.
The hospitality at this Inn was wonderful. The rooms are clean and well-appointed. The grounds are well-maintained and beautiful. The owners provided a handwritten welcome note ... champagne to celebrate a wedding ... and delicious breakfasts. They even offer recipes -- what a treat! The inn is conveniently located -- and if provides free bicycles to reach destinations a bit farther away. We will definitely return!
Fabulous stay in every way! We enjoyed the beautiful yard and quiet. A great location! Judy, Walter, Johanna and staff could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. Thank you for teaching us a new card game. Can't wait to return!
What an amazingly beautiful Inn. We felt welcome from the moment we walked Inn. And even our pooch was welcomed with a dog bone and a personal letter to her. The room was just lovely and sparkling clean. The property was so lovely and well taken care of. The breakfast was definitely gormet. Can't wait to return.
The view can not be beat. The bed was extremely comfortable although the sheets were rather scratchy. Unfortunately the claw-foot tub was a huge challenge for me having had knee replacement surgery. Owners were friendly and breakfast was very good.
Our stay at the Hartwell House Inn was fantastic - the location of the Inn is absolutely perfect and the Innkeepers were exceptionally helpful professional and courteous - We were very pleased with our accommodations and having a kitchenette was a great plus! We are already looking forward to our next visit at the Hartwell House Inn and would definitely recommend the Inn to our friends and family.
David and Charles made us feel so comfortable and at home, without being the least bit intrusive; perfectly balanced. Everything is beautiful, spotless, and gives off a sense of blissful well-being. Breakfast is a treat, and David makes delicious cookies to have with a terrific variety of coffees and teas, always readily available. We can't wait to go back. I wouldn't stay anywhwere else in Ogunquit!
We were there for a wedding. This was hosted in very efficient manner. and a good time was had by all. But we enjoyed the facilities so much that we hope to come back again --- may be for few days in the middle of the week.
We went up for our anniversary and were greeting with a bottle of champagne. The staff was beyond friendly, the grounds were more beautiful than we oculd have ever imagined and the value received was exceptional. Would definitely go back and highly recommend it for couples. Plus, only 15 minutse from Ogunquit.
Jerry and Pat run such a wonderful bed and breakfast. Not only are their breakfast plates to die for, but they are such caring individuals. The location is perfect; a nice and cozy location, only minutes away from the beach and walking distance to everything! The rooms are always clean. If you are looking for a private and charming spot to get away from reality for a little while; I'd highly recommend staying at te Trellis House!
We stay here every year for a few days in August. The house and rooms are charming and well kept. This year we stayed in the Velvet, which is our new favorite. The beach is only a 10 min walk. Breakfast is nice and Ray and his wife are very helpful if you're looking for ideas on things to do. We were not looking for someone to chitchat with us all morning so occasionally we ate breakfast on their beautiful wrap around porch. Fabulous!
We drove for 12 hours from our Maryland home to land at this quiet comfortable haven ; just in time to walk to our dinner reservations a block away. Returned to a peaceful cottage and wonderful restful night. Breakfast was fabulous! Beautiful morning of exploring the town with a bonus of a library book sale down the street. Totally good vibes here, the staff were the happiest - happy staff and most satisfied travelers!
We had a lovely stay in Room 110, which was like our own private cabin on the harbor. They surprised us, for our anniversary, with a bottle of sparkling wine including glasses and ice bucket , which we enjoyed after dinner in our room. It was quite warm so we had dinner in the dining room but next to the window so had a great view of the harbor. Our server was delightful and we missed him the next night, as he was serving at a group function. I enjoyed watching the boats coming and going as well cormorants and gulls from our deck. My only disappointment was they had a group of 20 our second evening dining, who were quite noisy which made it hard to enjoy the evening. They need a private room for large groups.
The setting of the Dockside is outstanding. If you want to be away from the summertime crowds of York Beach yet still be close enough to shops and restaurants, this is the place to go. You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the York River and Harbor from anywhere on this property. We biked around beautiful homes, kayaked the York River, and walked on nearby trails. It was a very enjoyable place to stay!
