In an Historic Home, located alongside the Narraguagus River and just off the Downeast Sunrise Trail, a stay at the Englishman's Bed and Breakfast offers visitors a taste of the early years of our nation. George Washington was President when the house was built in 1793. Though much of the original structure is intact, guests will appreciate the addition of half-baths and full-baths, a cottage-style guesthouse and the expansive veranda and deck that wrap the home on two sides. Also there is a screened-in Gazebo in which to enjoy reading, gazing at the river and having a glass of wine or beer. Owners Kathy and Peter (the Englishman) Winham are former archaeologists with tales to tell. They would love to share this magnificent home and grounds with visitors from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Europe and beyond.
Accommodations include a full private Carriage House/Cottage located just off the main deck. This has a queen bed, tv/dvd, dining area, kitchenette with microwave, double burner, refrigerator, kettle and toaster, a bathroom with shower stall and a loft with two aerobeds. In the main historic house there are two spacious guest bedrooms that can be rented separately or as a single suite. One room (the Estate Room) has a king bed and a private half-bath; the other room (the River Room) has a queen bed, a dvd/roku player and is adjacent to the full bath. The shower/bathtub in the full bath serves both the River and Estate Rooms. Breakfast is served in the old Keeping Room of the main house, and the Innkeepers attempt to adjust the breakfast entrees to individual preferences while maintaining a “jolly good” standard!
