Country comforts. An absolute gem. In every aspect, an authentic New England B&B. In NO way does this establishment resemble the homogenous, bland, commercial experience most of us now associate with summer vacationing and travel lodging. The Pines is like coming home to grandmother's house. Beautiful, quiet grounds graced with ancient pines, flourishing ivy, and a sparkling creek laden with blooming water lilies. Our hosts were attentive and gracious, the room cozy and clean, with fresh linens and towels, and a comfortable bed. No A/C needed. For 6 days, we enjoyed a box fan blowing gently in the window, and fell easily into a long, peaceful night's sleep. Come here if to mentally and spiritually detox, and relish true, old world simplicity.
