The room was very clean a little small and no TV. This was a total shock to my teenager but the wifi worked so he was all set. Got a good night sleep, no frills but beautiful historic bldg.

Gem of a place close to Sugarloaf

Posted Mar 19, 2017
Pros: Personal service and historic charm. Very good value and price for long weekend stay.
Cons: I pretty much enjoyed everything about the place.
Was very easy to find after a long drive up the east coast. Good parking. Extremely friendly and personable hotel manager. Entire hotel and individual rooms were historic, clean, and tons of character. Bathrooms immaculate and large. Plenty of hot water. Access to a couple of local restaurants and bars (across the street and down the road). Local water is same used in the Poland Spring Bottled water - excellent tasting water. Next door to a Sugarloaf affiliated ski and snowboard gear store (that was well stocked). Short 20 minute drive to Sugarloaf. Great location and awesome hotel. Can't wait to return.

Well kept structure but some issues

Posted Mar 1, 2017
Pros: Old structure in generally good shape. Historical value.
Cons: Probably can't do much for noise reduction, but offering "hot" coffee should be easy to get done.
Location: Closeness to Sugarloaf was the reason for staying there.
Structure is from past years. Generally well kept. Major issues with closeness to the road and logging trucks rolling by starting at 4AM. Suggest requesting a room on the rear side of the building if you want sleep. Also disappointed that coffee was only luke warm at 7AM. Must have been brewed the night before and put in insulated containers that can't keep contents hot for overnight.

Liked the lobby and the staff that worked there. There are no tvs, refridgerators, or vending machine and the town stores close very early. Nice drive back and forth to the mountain

Great Value

Posted Feb 7, 2017
Location: Hotel is near Sugarloaf; we were able to get to the mountiain within 20 min of leaving the hotel.
This is a beautiful, if worn, old hotel. The staff is very nice and the room that we had was clean and quiet. You may not get the ammenities you come to expect from a branded hotel chain, but what you do get in an excellent value.

Wonderful historic ambiance

Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: Fair price, ambiance, nice art on walls including the Common Ground Country Fair posters.
Cons: Continental breakfast, with treats from the excellent local bakery, and tea as well as coffee in the morning.
Location: Skiing! Huts and trails! Day trip up to Stratton Brook Hut for lunch was spectacular.
A very comfortable and endearing step back in time. With great recent renovations to the rooms. I look forward to further expansions, including bringing the dining room back. Also especially nice for us that they allow dogs.
