A haven on the Atlantic coast

I would like to introduce you to a B&B, one that continues to capture my heart and soul the minute I set foot into this historical home. It is also a place where my sister Pat and I wholeheartedly choose as our annual retreat under the sun in Maine, The Holbrook House in Bar Harbor – www.holbrookhouse.com  

     Aside from its architectural appeal, there are the innkeepers, Eric and Michelle Allvin who not only welcomes you to their home, but also its very large front porch just wants you to curl up to read, relax and enjoy one of the many freshly-made beverages.

     You will certainly take pleasure in the splendid hot breakfasts which are served and a feast also for one’s eyes – a double culinary delight. If not for the latter, there is the afternoon refreshments, those that give you a pick-me-up after a busy day.

     It doesn’t take long to feel part of this 1876 Victorian abode, including the formulation of a friendship with Eric and Michelle because of their humble, kind and gracious personalities.

     There are plenty of vacationing sights within a mile such as Acadia National Park and you can also take in the historical town.

     With the above said, we are booked for 2013 and our thoughts will stay focused on seeing our friends and basting in the richness of this area once again.

    We have been in the Bar Harbor area over the years, but it has been at least 5 years since we have set foot on Maine soil. After reading your review, we are planning – as you write – a place that will “capture my (our) heart(s) and soul(s) as we near our 35th union. Viewed HH’s website and I am sure it will deliver and hopefully we shall meet. Respectfully, Barbara
