... farmers market. Portland seems to be winning the "buy local" battle, a large majority of stores, bars, restaurants are independent too. I've spotted a few usual chain suspects but everyone I speak to raves about the "little cafe down the street" or the "handmade jewellery store". They seem proud of local produce and rightly so, it's producing some of the best beers I've tried! This morning I had a meeting with ...

Today I went out on Stephen and Louisa's boat. It was glorious, I wore my anchor vans and hoisted the main sail twice! The weather here is prone to change.

... gaps opening up in the UK where people will have benefits cut, advocacy disappears as local agencies lose funding, some members of the community will become more reliant on others for day to day tasks: lifts to the hospital, collecting shopping, about the house work.

Historical Traveler Reviews Harraseeket Inn Freeport
We- (four friends) have stayed at the Inn many times over the years on our yearly trip to Freeport.
The Harraseekett Inn is a great place
The Harraseekett Inn is one of the fine New England Inns comparable to The Woodstock Inn, the Publick House etc. The ownership and staff take pride in providing the customer with a clean, cozy place to stay.
Their rates can be really high but be sure to calculate any included meals. We had a package that included breakfast each day and dinner one of the nights. The dinner was outstanding, the breakfasts were just fair.
Very nice place
very nice and the food is superb!
Is it possible for an inn to be "simple" (that is, informal and friendly) yet "superb" (that is, presenting the highest standards of service, accomodation and quality of food) at the same time? At Freeport's Harraseeket Inn, the answer is yes. We have been coming to the Harraseeket for a number of years. This one our innkeeper, in passing, noticed in the parking lot that that our car had a flat tire, managed to get it filled so that the car could be driven, advised us on where a permanent repair should be performed, drove us to the shop and back, and then insisted (insisted!) on driving us back an hour later to collect it. Some people would say that this alone would merit a 5 star rating. However, we then went on the same night to have a meal at the Inn's Maine Dining Room that emphasized the freshest ingrediants from local farms. We'd compare the overall experience to the very best from our North American and European travel. We love this place. In a more selfish world we'd keep a gem like this to ourselves ...
We go back every year
My husband and I go to the Harraseeket every year. The rooms are beautiful and cozy (and very, very clean!) Both restaurants are wonderful for both dinner and breakfast. We try to take advantage of the serious shopper package - we don't think theres a better deal around!
Loved the Harraseeket
We found out about this Inn on this website. Made reservations for two nights, not knowing what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. In fact, we stayed 5 nights. The amenities are wonderful. The rooms are so homey and cozy. The location is perfect for shopping the outlets. The food in the lounge is wonderful, and the tea everyday at 4:00 is an added bonus. The service was good, and everyone there very friendly.We highly recommend a stay here. Although the price is a little higher than average, it's worth it.
Best in town
we have stayed here for a few years in a row and have enjoyed it very much; the townhouse rooms in the back are fairly new and have 2-3 bedrooms, with living room and kitchen, and are perfect for a larger family, with reasonable rates; the rooms in the inn itself are a bit cozier and more luxurious; the inn is a short walk to the LL Bean and other outlet stores in town; the inn has two restaurants, the Broadarrow Tavern, fairly casual, with good food, and a more formal dining room; a full breakfast buffet in the dining room is included with each room, a great value; an indoor pool and outdoor croquet lawn court is also available; the staff are all very helpful, all in all, a pleasure to stay.
Very romantic and the staff is so nice
my husband and I stayed at the Harraseeket Inn for our 10th Anniversary. If you are looking for a romantic or a special place to stay the Harraseeket is wonderful. The staff is great and could not be more helpful. From the time you arrive until you leave you feel pampered. We had a room with a fireplace and a whirlpool tub. It is almost as if you had not left home. We were there the first weekend in May. Would like to return in the fall.
Wonderful place to be.....
We visited the Harraseeket on our first trip to Freeport. The staff was warm and friendly, the room was intimate and cozy (we had a room with a fireplace), and the food was delicious. A nice breakfast buffet was included in our room rate. When I called for the reservation, I mentioned that it was my husband's birthday, and they remembered at check-in that we were there for a special occassion. We were able to park the car when we arrived, and didn't move it again until we left Freeport. They are within walking distance to everything. I can't say enough nice things about this wonderful inn located in this cute "shopping" town. We had a great experience, and can't wait to go back!
Warm, Elegant and Wonderful
We happened upon the Harraseeket Inn while traveling through Freeport a few years ago. We're thrilled that we did! We had no reservation, but they gave us an exquisitely decorated guestroom with a whirlpool bath at very reasonable rates. The rooms were beautiful and spotless. We ate a delicious lobster dinner at the dimly lit and very romantic Broadarrow Tavern downstairs. The breakfast buffet the following morning was equally fabulous. The inn is easily within walking distance of all of the shops in the area. It couldn't have been more perfect. This will be our main Maine stop when we return. Highly recommended!
