Maine. The Magazine

the Kennebunks. My years here in Maine have allowed me 
to explore so many different towns and

 are Kennebunkport and Kennebunk. For a variety of reasons, from the Kennebunkport Festival to Christmas Prelude and the friends I have made along the way, these towns are special to me and are great destinations for a weekend trip.   Friday 6:00 p.m. @ Innat English Meadows Innkeepers Kate and David Parisi warmly greet me. Enjoying a few moments in the main part of the inn, I scroll through the guest book to read the number of positive comments

of white wine on ice is delivered to my room.

The Bradley Inn

March 31st, 2017 by Rick Wolf

“Our Coastal Maine full-service country inn has been providing respite for weary travelers for well over a century. Ideally situated in mid-coast Maine, this New Harbor inn is located at the tip of the Pemaquid peninsula – near two of Maine’s most picturesque harbors and a stones throw from the historic Pemaquid Lighthouse.

While the dove-grey shingles show their familiarity with salt and time and the garden perennials happily run rampant, the beauty, warmth and welcome found within our doors is unsurpassed.

The classic Maine B&B guestrooms are uniquely decorated and very well appointed. Each room is full of character and comfort: original art, antiques and ethereally soft featherbeds.  Our simple, yet elegant Chart Room restaurant boasts some of Maine’s best food (Food and Wine Magazine said that) and an award-winning wine list.  The rustic wood-paneled Chartroom Tavern offers antique half hulls and the local ale – and if you’re lucky a bit of local fishing lore.

In the evening, the Portland granite bar in the Slippery Hitch Pub shines and reflects the sun as it sets over Johns Bay.  However bright the granite glows, it dulls in contrast to the staff that twinkles and charms with their own unique brand of Down East hospitality.”

The B&B Team welcomes Laura, Tony and Ross Moskwa as the new Innkeepers/Stewards of Maine’s iconic Bradley Inn.

Rick Wolf and Eliot Dalton represented the Moskwa’s and welcome them to our Innkeeping community.
