What a great place. We only needed a place to spend the night on our way to Acadia but The Federal turned out to be a lovely hotel in a great town. I plan to come back just to stay here next year!

We only stayed one night but were pleased with the hotel. We had stayed here when it was The Daniel - huge improvement this time. Very comfortable beds. My only suggestion is they should offer breakfast. They gave us a list of local restaurants but breakfast at the hotel would have been nice.

The staff at The Federal were friendly and helpful. The property is very pretty inside and my room was comfortable. It is about a 5-minute walk (max) to town. Ample parking in back. I would stay here again.
