My husband and I just returned from our trip to Maine, where we celebrated our first year wedding anniversary. We spent the first night of our trip at the Waldo Emerson Inn in the Ralph's Library room. The room itself was cozy and was nicely decorated, fitting in nicely with the rest of the inn. Although, it was located on the first floor, and right next to the kitchen, so it was a bit noisy. We could hear the squeaky floorboards from the rooms above (although, this is to be expected in an inn as old as this one!), and could hear commotion taking place in the kitchen. We could also hear people out on the lawn, as our window looked right out to the lawn chairs. Although, this will probably not be a problem from here on out, as it was only an issue for us as we had our windows open since the AC units had not yet been installed. The noise was not an issue for us and does not change my opinion of this inn. I just note it as it may be an issue for some people. I think that we will probably try to stay in a second floor room next time anyway, as the rooms there are a bit more spacious. Besides that, the food was fantastic, the innkeepers were very helpful and friendly, and the inn itself was lovely and full of history.
