Wonderful Experience

5 on June 08, 2013

Seconding the comments of the previous reviewer. Thank heavens for Karen and VIncent and their operation; it's a wonderful addition to the options in Calais.

Having recently stayed at Calais Crossing River House, we can honestly say that we will come again as soon as possible. The atmosphere which hosts Karen and Vincent have created is most welcoming and relaxing. One could spend their entire stay within the house itself, and still the eye would constantly find new and intriguing details and objects to admire. The house is kept in pristine condition and is conveniently situated with easy parking. The river view is ever-changing and the gardens are a delight. The warm glow of streetlights on the Canadian side as seen from across the river add a touch of romance and mystery in the evening. Thank you Karen and Vincent for your attentiveness to our every need. We will see you again, for sure. Emmy and Seymour from Long Island, NY
