Old World Charm & Atmosphere

4.4 on August 02, 2014

Walking in was instantly comfortable, and made us feel like we had taken a step back in time. The rooms and common areas are all furnished with antiques, and added to the old world feel. You could simply sense the history of the town and the building itself, which used to be a stage coach stop. Rooms are very clean. Hosts are very personable, welcoming, attentive, and helpful in providing local history and suggesting places to check out. They are very accessible if you need them, yet discrete so that you feel you have privacy and can really unwind. We were arriving late, so loved the flexibility to do this, and that fact that they have a seamless system for checking in at will, no matter when you arrive, as well as flexible breakfast times. They have a well organized approach to their whole service. Nice touches were chocolates on the bed and a welcome letter to orient us to the B&B and town. Loved that they own an antique store on the lower level where we could browse and shop (and a discount for guests!). We will go back again!

Innkeeper Response
We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and it was a pleasure to have you. Come back and see us again in the near future!

Intriguing history

4.2 on October 13, 2013

The accommodations were terrific, and Our hostess Ann was helpful and efficient. We enjoyed Winterport's winery (their cranberry wine, and warm mulled apple wine was out of this world! And the pizza place across the road provided healthy and tasty fare.

Innkeeper Response

Excellent for many reasons

Commercial House is an antique shop on the ground floor with wonderful items. Upstairs is the B&B. Lovely rooms. Breakfast room great - delish breakfasts. Ray and Ann are perfect!

Just what a B&B should be

5 on September 01, 2013

First time staying in a B&B and this was the perfect place to start. Ann (property owner) was incredibly welcoming. B&B is located above antique shop and is furnished with antiques. They even have a reading room for guests use. Highly recommend it.

Innkeeper Response

A little piece of heaven
