Centuries old buildings can sometimes have problematic feng shui. Along with the quaintness and charm can also come ghosts and residual negative energy build up from a long history. Rooms in vintage buildings might also feel cramped and crowded. Antique furniture poses its own problems. The Blue Hill Inn on Union Street in Blue Hill, Maine has only very positive vibrant energy. Much of that has to do with its innkeeper Sarah Pebworth. Sarah’s love of the place and attention to detail is evident everywhere one looks in both the interior and the gardens and grounds of the inn. With a passion for food and Maine, Sarah has a very entertaining Innkeeper’s Blog that draws you into the Maine scene whether you are lucky enough to visit or are halfway around the globe.
Whether or not you are staying at the inn you may make a reservation for breakfast at the inn. It is served each morning between 8 and 9:30 a.m. in our sun-filled dining room. Fresh fruit, assorted juices, and freshly baked sweet breads accompany a choice of cooked-to-order entrees or homemade granola. Blueberry pancakes, Belgian waffles with strawberries, brie and sweet roasted red pepper omelets, and amaretto french toast are favorites among guests. Local ingredients, including Maine maple syrup, are featured, as well as coffee from Maine roasted coffee beans. Food allergies and restrictions are easily accommodated. See what I mean about attention to detail?
I have had the pleasure of capturing the Blue Hill Inn in paint on canvas last autumn when the trees were ablaze with color. I embedded nautical charts of Blue Hill and Penobscot Bay into the scene. Do you think I captured the essence of the Blue Hill Inn’s spirit? What’s your favorite B & B inn? Do tell!
