Anniversary in Greenville

 

L1040491 

We went to Greenville, ME this year for our anniversary. We stayed at the Greenville Inn and it was wonderful. You can read the blog here.

We usually go to Camden but with the new hip and the congestion, we thought we would go somewhere more contained. We had a suite with a sitting room. Perfect. It was chilly and it rained a bit so the sitting room was very convenient as I could set up a little office. I am still setting up the new computer.

There were gas fireplaces in most of the rooms so with the press of a button, there was a delightful little fire.

The Greenville Inn Was built by lumber baron William Shaw. He liked the latest and the finest. Intercoms throughout and marble soaking tubs with the fanciest of plumbing fixtures for the time.

The inn was begun in 1885. It was finished in 1895. It took 10 years for the woodworking and details to be completed.

Hi Carol

That looks a great place to stay, with a lot of history, my kind of place. Great views from that lovely terrace. Love the old telephone. Is that a window with the tree in stained glass?

Thank you for the comment, back is still painful but then I don't usually take it easy, walked up and down 114 steps yesterday at Kew Gardens, blog post another day!! Take care, Jackie in UK.

The stained glass of the tree is exceptionally beautiful!

Carol, what a simply stunning place to stay for a special occasion such as your anniversary! I visited the Inn's website and it is truly a marvelous place. Reminds Dean and I of the Captain Lords Mansion in Kennebunkport, Maine you and Jack should visit some year.

Looks like a wonderful place to stay! I hope you are enjoying it! Look at those food prices, wow, I thought it was bad here in Southampton!
