Thank you for staying with us. Maybe next time we might move up the list a bit from 77th call to 27th? Glad we could make room for you, even though it was in a "not quite ready" room.

Thank you for the kind comments and the explanation of the "shared bathroom" setup that applies to *some rooms*. We greatly appreciated having you with us.

I was in Ellsworth on business for 5 days and wanted something more homey/cozy than the run of the mill travel hotel. I found this B&B and was absolutely delighted! My room and bath were super clean and cozy with a nice parlor sitting area...More
