(Blue Hill, ME)

"At the Blue Hill Inn, individualized guest attention is the first priority.  Staff are available to make suggestions, assist with itineraries, help with directions, and make reservations.  Staff are familiar with the area and can direct guests to great boating, live music, beautiful picnic spots, husband-friendly shopping, and delicious lobster rolls.
Our breakfasts are designed with guests in mind.  Choices range from vacation decadent to watching one’s waistline.  Special menus to accommodate individual food allergies or restrictions are easily arranged.
Innkeeper Sarah Pebworth and the staff of the inn personally see to the details of each guest’s stay.
Located on an acre of land in the center of the village of Blue Hill and a block from the head of Blue Hill Bay, the inn is one of 76 structures on the National Register of Historic Places. Shade trees, a perennial garden, and a small grove of fruit trees enhance the grounds.
A Federal period building, the Blue Hill Inn has eleven guest rooms, a dining room, and two parlors. It retains many of its original features, including clapboards, nine over six windows, wide pumpkin pine floor boards, and six fireplaces.

  3. So beautiful...I wouldn't mind staying at them all :)

  4. Hi Erin...well this was a breath of fresh air. i love all of it so much. so good to see you today at Farmhouse...

    i won't lie to ya...this just about did me in...some days i had my doubts. this just left me flat. what an ordeal. i had a kitty from 1980 to 2000...20 years..a silver persian named Schuggie. i got her from a filthy, dumpy pet store...i don't even know why..i was just walking by one day and saw her in the window and took her home...and, naturally she was really sick. the vet said to put her down..but i said no...and she was my BEST FRIEND for 20 years. She died July 2000 and I miss her everyday. My best friend, Julie of Julie Whitmore Pottery made a beautiful little jar for her ashes...and I visit her everyday.Everyday. Pets just steal your heart.

    Losing Buddy was just horrible as you can imagine. I know I can NEVER, EVER replace him...but I have so much love to give another..there is a hole in my heart..waiting for little Teddy...

    You are one of my favorite blogs to visit and I can't wait to share Teddy with you.

    Sending you love my friend,

  5. Hi Erin,

    Just discovered your blog - LOVE it! Please stop by my little blog sometime when you get a chance - we have many similar interests!


  6. Wow, you're making me fall in love with my home all over again! Right now it's a typical rainy muddy early spring in Portland, Maine, but I have narcissus that's a foot high and ready to bud, and pretty lavender crocus dotting my side lawn. Your blog is beautiful and celebrates the best of living here. :)

  7. I would love to stay in anyone of those Erin!
    I have been to New England twice, and I love it! Especially Maine, it reminds me of Wisconsin being mostly rural. Great Post!

  8. Hey! That's my inn! I'm the innkeeper at the Blue Hill Inn. Maine is great, I have to admit. The joke is, "Were you born in Maine?" "No, but I got here just as fast as I could!" What a lovely, fun blog.


Thanks for your thoughts!
