Captain Lindsay House – Four Seasons Inn

Just a short walk from the main street of Rockland, Maine, it is proudly located on The Lindtain House on Lindsay Street. We have published stories and recipes for hundreds of hotels and hostels around the world. Every time there is a common thread weaving in the most successful institutions. If it's an old fishing shed on a remote island or the best hotel in Paris, it doesn't matter, it's people – people who own and run hotels.

The captain of Lindsey House is very special. This current hotel was built in 1832 by Captain George Lindsey and was meticulously restored by current owners Ken and Ellen Barnes. You and Ken and Ellen are on the basis of the name, Ellen will meet you on the Cape Air flight in Rockland. They spare no effort or detail to make their hotel the most welcoming hotel we have ever experienced. During your stay, Ken and Ellen will appear in the morning to ensure you feel comfortable and plenty of food.

It feels like the happy old England, the home of this elegant and intimate Maine captain. On a rainy June afternoon, a warm flame was lit up in the living room. The scent of freshly picked roses and sweet things and things in the oven filled the room. Hotel owner Patricia offers you a cup of warm tea in an English porcelain cup with a homemade raisin oatmeal cookie. Before or after unpacking, you can sink into the comfortable sofa bed from the books in the fully equipped library. You will feel right at home.

There are many award-winning restaurants, charming shops, galleries, museums, golf courses, lighthouses, spas and charming harbours filled with lobster boats, sailboats and windmills. However, we are content to enjoy the serene beauty of European style hospitality. When we entered our lovely sanctuary, filled with antiques and the most modern facilities, such as Egyptian cotton towels, we were pleasantly surprised. Not at all like home – much better.

The next morning, we met at breakfast. After enjoying the fresh local fruits, juices and aromatic coffee, you can taste special egg baking made by Innkeeper, Patricia. Breakfast includes rustic ham and fresh asparagus. Every morning, Patricia happily offers salty and homemade sweet dishes such as French toast with real maple syrup and homemade rhubarb and strawberry jam.

Rockland and The Captain Lindsey House are a place for all seasons. Although our travel writing schedule rarely requires a second visit, we know that we will return as much as possible to make a windjammer cruise or taste more in the annual "Pies On Parade" in January each year. pie. We are happy to say that we rediscovered the town of Rockand and everything it offers. However, since Bobby Flay and Rachel Ray are also in Rockland recently, we guess the word has come out!
