We made a trip around the north of New England, in November. We knew that the season would be over by then, but in many other Inns, like in Cape Cod, Portsmouth, Portland, and Acadia we found nice Inns, which were still very hospitable and friendly. As we came to The Inn at Smith Cove, we were told from a really rude innkeeper woman, that we are the only guest and that there would be a small breakfast with tea, coffee and some pastry starting at 7 AM. We told the owner, that we wouldn’t get up before 9 AM the next morning, so that breakfast would be ok at this time. The following morning, we get down, from the smallest room, we have ever slept in. Why not giving us a bigger room for the same money is not understandable for us, but this is another point. So we came down that morning and there were really old pastry things, that tasted like old shoe sole, and the water that we should use for our tea was in a coffee machine pitcher, and was not as hot as needed for making a good tea. At least it would have been nice giving us access to the kitchen to use the water boiler. The orange juice was limited for only 2 glasses; oh excuse me for paper cups. The whole stay was not really what we expected of a recommended Inn from nearly every Guide. So we hope for everybody, that the innkeepers are nice in the summer otherwise they missed the point with running an Inn.
Very disappointing overall. The innkeeper woman was extremely unpleasant upon arrival. Although the rooms inside the main building looked nice, the "Little House in the Cove", a separate building which should have been called a nice shed, was full of mold, smelled bad, and made both of us sick after only one night in it! They obviously knew about the problem due to an open baking soda box in the corner behind the dresser! The innkeepers were even more rude and unpleasant when we discussed this matter with them in the morning. Breakfast consisted of coffee and tea left out all day (no cream for either and no juice or anything), and stale store-bought mini-muffins which we couldn't even eat! We will never stay there again!
My husband and I have been to the inn several times over the past years and have been treated very cordially at every visit.We will continue to return for future visits.The rooms are comfortable and immaculate.Although breakfast is not offered,they do give their guests complimentary coffee,tea,juice and pastry.
The innkeepers really were as rude and unfriendly as the other reviews mentioned. They were rude even on the phone when making the reservation but as we were going with a larger party we did not have a choice about staying there. The innkeeper made our entire party uncomfortable and would frequently talk to us about the other guest- and it was not very nice. He seems very unhappy with his chosen profession.
That said, the outside of the inn is very pretty and has a great view. The inside is nice enough but the furniture looks like it was bought at a thrift store or garage sale. It is in decent shape but nothing goes together.
All in all, not a terrible place to spend a night but try not to hang around the inn at all. The staff will ruin your vacation.
This was not a guest oriented inn at all. Our only personal contact with an owner was upon arrival when we were given a key and a bill for the entire stay. When we checked out (early due to dissatisfaction) we did it through an intercom to the owner's house. Our room was very small, with about a foot of space between the walls and the bed. The only furnishings were a rickety floor lamp & a small bureau, placed sideways since it was wider than 12 inches. The 'continental breakfast' was stale coffee and stale bread in a dark room, again with no human contact. The grounds were nice, but the keep off the grass signs were certainly not welcoming. The worse aspect was the continuous noise of mice in the walls during the night. I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone.
My husband and I stayed here for a weekend and very much liked it. The owners were very friendly, even inviting us over to their private porch for drinks. The location is perfect, far enough away to be quiet, yet close to everything. The grounds are beautiful, there is obviously pride of ownership. Also, the rooms were spotless. We'll definitely go back again!
The Inn is very picturesque, wonderfully clean, well maintained and the landscaping is exceptional. Have been to the Inn several times and look forward to the next visit with my wife - we both enjoy it so much.
We had a really nice stay. The inn is very clean, comfortable, well kept, and beautiful. The inkeepers were helpful regarding places to eat. We enjoyed chatting with Bob. The location is ideal. The gazebo/dock on the water is a delightful location to enjoy some breakfast that we stored in the refrigerator made available to us. We will definitely stay there again!
