B&B Friday (8/27/10)!


Autumn has begun to grace us with 
its presence here on Long Island.
Pictured is my friend Pooh holding a fiery
orange leaf my aunt found the other day ...
Isn't is beautiful? ♥

I don't know about you, but I am so
ready for chilly nights, warm apple cider,
spooky stories, and pumpkin-everything!

1.
Crook Jaw Inn
(Yarmouthport, Ma)

"Listed on the National Historic Register and located in a seaside village, this classic c. 1798 cape is a getaway haven combining old world charm with modern amenities. Romantically warm and cozy, the inn's seven fireplaces, library, spacious gathering room, free WiFi and secluded brick patio is well suited for both extended stays or that needed getaway weekend. Its 5 guest rooms with sumptuous beds are distinctively appointed. All are air conditioned and have private baths, one with jacuzzi. Guests enjoy good company over the inn's acclaimed breakfasts and fresh ground coffee served by a crackling fire in cooler months. It's mid-cape location allows quick access to the National Seashore beaches, ferries to the islands, and numerous other Cape delights. Antique shops, fine dining, nature trails, and sunsets overlooking Cape Cod Bay are minutes or steps away."

Rates: $125-155

2.
 
Coach Stop Inn
(Bar Harbor, ME)

"The Coach Stop Bed and Breakfast, built c.1804, is Bar Harbor's oldest. A stagecoach stop originally christened the Halfway Tavern, it was virtually the only housing readily available to the sailors and adventurers traveling the wild northern reaches of New England. The main structure's colonial style mirrors the architecture of many antique dwellings and taverns on Cape Cod. Our home was expanded throughout the last two centuries, and has been renovated and maintained with care to preserve the integrity of its historic details. Enjoy our country setting surrounded by ancient apple trees and lovely gardens."

Rates: $135-165

3.
Olde Orchard Inn
(Moultenborough, NH)

"Olde Orchard Inn is nestled on the outskirts of rural Moultonborough at northern end of Lake Winnipesaukee, about two hours from Boston. Simply decorated with antiques and natural fibres, the colonial farmhouse is relaxed and casual yet also offers many modern conveniences such as private bathrooms, fireplaces, robes and air conditioning. It is located on nearly ten acres of apple orchards, yet is also conveniently located to many four-season attractions and several superb restaurants."

Rates: $90-185

Enjoy this "last" weekend of Summer!

  1. Oh, Erin, that was so enjoyable reading about the B&Bs. Do you actually stay at each of them? I could see we have many interests in common, like Tasha Tudor, Susan Branch, B&Bs, etc. I love New England, too! Susan

  3. Lovely, lovely, and lovely. I wanted to stay at the place in Bar Harbor both times I was there, but it was always booked solid! And I usually come to life in the fall, but I'm just not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet.

  4. Good morning, Erin. Happy Tasha Tudor Day to you! And Happy Fall.

    I'm so in the mood for chilly nights, apple cider and pumpkins too! I would love to be spending fall in New England. Maybe one day I'll live there. To hope, to dream... and maybe to do.

    Thank you for the B&B post today. I think the Coach Stop Inn has my vote just because of the old cook stove in the corner. It has a very cozy, comfy feel to it and makes me yearn for my great grandmother's old house and time spent there.

    Thank you so much for this wonderful post and a sweet rekindling of a fond memory from my childhood,

    Susan

  9. Hello again, Erin,

    Thank you so much for swinging by my blog for Tasha Tudor Day. I really loved reading your comment. Thank you so much for all your wonderful complements and kind words. You are really a sweetheart.

    The picture of Tasha with the pumpkin under the full moon is from the book: The Private World of Tasha Tudor. I actually would love that up on my wall. I think it's a fabulous photo of her and shows a love piece of her beloved Vermont along with her.

    I too hope to live in Vermont one day. It's been a dream of mine for a very long time. Even before I knew of Tasha Tudor many moons ago. It is the most lovely state, I feel.

    I hope you have a beautiful Sunday today and are enjoying the very first signs of fall,

    Susan

  10. Greetings Erin,
    So glad you stopeed by and I hope you'll pop in again as I finally have my Tasha Tudor Day post up! My goodness you do love New England:-) I was just in Sandwich and can understand why you would call that little cape your dream home--so enchanting. We live in a 1799 cape, typical post and beam old New England style home. I love it and I do love New England, couldn't imagine living anywhere else.
