Obscure historical note created a great experience
Very nice owners that are lucky to have a great property. Had a great casual feel that made one feel as welcome as possible. Excellent facility.

Quiet and clean
This was our first stay in a B&B and we didn't know what to expect. The room was very clean and quiet. Although wifi didn't work at all and we really rely on that in our travels to plan our next days. There is close to nothing to do in the evenings in Waterville. No pubs. A few restaurants. We enjoy getting out and listening to music and such but there wasn't much going on. Great place to relax though.
