The Waterford Inne provides exactly what one dreams a stay at a country inn should be from the first moment you turn into the drive to the moment you depart. It is the quintessential Inne. The Inne itself is the perfect picture of a beautifully kept colonial home with a wonderful red barn. Inside, the Inne is charming (and oh, so spotless!). There are several rooms from which to choose to sit and relax and soak in the peace and quiet. I have been a frequent visitor and have now stayed in just about all the rooms. Each is well-appointed and has all the comforts of home. To really enjoy the full experience of the Waterford Inne, one must stay for dinner. Barbara Vanderzanden is a wonderful host, and the meals she prepares are equally as wonderful. Treat yourself to something special and make a reservation today

My husband and I had a lovely pre-Christmas visit to the Waterford Inn. Barbara is a wonderful host and cook! It was the perfect getaway before the craze of Christmas.

As a traveler for work, I stayed here hoping for a quiet, restful inn that would balance a stressful workday. I found this and more. The inn is a pleasure to visit- beautifully decorated, with a flair for history and a lovely collection of pewter throughout. The daily drive to and from Norway, ME is only 15 minutes each way- just far enough to offer a feeling of "getting away" to the countryside. Barbara, the innkeeper, is well-traveled and a caring, delightful hostess. She took a personal interest in my food preferences, and made green tea each morning for me. My room was clean and cozy, and I slept better here than I have in many hotels. I look forward to another visit to this area of the state, and will definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at the Waterford Inne for years. Each time we are there the food is wonderful, the lodging is like being in my own home. I feel so comfortable there. It is clean beyond words.
