  • Help me learn more about BCD Travel: its values, practices and corporate environment
  • Teach me about how BCD interacts with, retains, and contracts, new clients
  • Show me to what extent BCD is able to retain a consistent corporate identity (and feel) in spite of its large size not to mention its geographical, cultural and linguistic diversity
I'll develop these expectations a bit more over the coming weeks. For now, to Atlanta!

New England Coastal Tour

... s summer home at Walker Point. This property has been in the Bush (Walker) family for years but security was amped up when Bush became president. A separate house was built on the property to accommodate the security personnel. It is on a small peninsula and totally visible from the public coastal road so we could get a good view from the slowly moving bus - no stopping is allowed opposite the property. The return trip to Boston along the highway was a much quicker ride - back by ...

Rain and Lobsters

... for lunch, since it was a place I frequented as a young child. Lunch was at Barnacle Billy's in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit. We were able to have a nice corner table overlooking the boats and under the awnings, as it continued to drizzle and rain. Four lobster rolls, 2 tuna rolls and a few drafts hit the spot and showed the kids a real New England tradition for lunch. Leaving Ogunquit, there was ...

... for our liking - Are we getting old? You're damn right we are. Onward to a place called Bayview Cottages, which are actually in the town of Saco - they do roll up the sidewalks here after 7pm. Almost everything in this town closes. Well, folks there ain't no view of the bay. When we first pulled up and viewed the 5 or 6 cottages, we stood with mouths agape. When we went into our little cottage, Number 3, out jaws dropped. This place is a ...

Wednesday, a trip to Freeburg to clean and rearrange the book shelves. (Sneeze, sneeze). Thursday, stopped for paint chips and back to ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews White Barn Inn Kennebunk

    The Perfect Dining Experience

    from

    I had the pleasure of dining at The White Barn Inn Restaurant a few days ago. The evening from start to finish was delightful. The staff were lovely and very professional. The food was amazing - a work of art. I have taste buds I didn't know I had! The chefs are artists. I am only sorry I hadn't gone sooner. It was the perfect dining experience and the perfect end to a lovely time here in Kennebunkport, Maine.

    A bit dissappointing

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the White Barn Inn in late July and found the experience, on the whole, dissappointing. While we liked the manager, some of the desk personnel (there is no concierge, per se) acted as if we were a bit of a bother when we asked questions. The room was a particular letdown. We had a standard room (although not standard in expense!) that had no view of anything and was designed rather poorly. There was no room for two people to maneuver around the extremely tight bathroom, which had no fan, leaving it in a near permanent fog. The room was poorly lit and inexplicably, there was no light in the closet, which was where the clothes cabinet was located, making it extremely difficult to see your clothing. In addition, the tv was located under a skirted table, making it unviewable from your bed. The room had no mini-bar. The restaurant was beautiful, and fantastically expensive. The best part was the pool area, which was very attractive. In short, this is not the place to go if you like to be in a nice room.

    Excellent

    from

    The rooms was small but beautifully decorated. The service was excellent. The restaurant is expensive but well worth it.

    Wonderful, but you need to expect formality

    from

    My wife and I have stayed at the White Barn Inn four times during the past ten years. Each visit has been great, accompanied by a fantastic dinner in the restaurant.

    Like a dream

    from

    The White Barn Inn was a dream come true for my wife and I. We found it thru the website and booked a waterfront cottage, yes rate was right up there, but everything was perfect. Best service, unbelieveable food and a great room with fireplace.Will be going back for Valentines Day and again for our anniversary.DO not miss the restaurant, was the most memorable meal we have ever enjoyed.

    Fabulous!

    from

    I have never enjoyed a stay more. just fabulous rooms, and finest restaurant on the East Coast. OUr room had a wonderful bed, wood burning fireplace and the nicest bath I have ever seen, we also ordered abutler drawn bath from the menu of in room spa service, excellent!

    Very formal!!!

    from

    While on vacation in Kennebunkport we had dinner at the White Barn Inn. The food was delicious and the service excellent, but if you're not comfortable with very fine, formal dining, it's not the place for you. The formality borders on comical. The Cape Arundel Inn is a better choice, with a wonderful view of the ocean, equally delicious food, but a very warm and personable wait staff makes for a more relaxed and enjoyable dining experience.

    Fabulous Upscale dining!

    from

    When my husband and I began planning a trip to Maine for our anniversary, it didn't take long to discover that The White Barn Inn is the best place to dine in Maine. We always try to have an exquisite meal on the night of our anniversary, and this establishment did NOT dissapoint us. The satff was extremely attentive, and the food was excellent. A pianist in the lobby played soft jazz and classics--very romantic and relaxing. Yes, the plsce is expensive, but if you don't appreciate fine food and top-notch service, then go someplace else. My only complaint (and take this with a grain of salt, because I am an interior designer) was the overly lit diplay of foliage out the window of the room we were eating in. The room was actually over a parking lot, but they enclosed an area of about 10 feet past the window, and had pots and flowers and trees growing out there with lights shining on then. It was a little "staged" looking, but in no way detracted from the atmosphere or the FOOD.

    All I can say is, if you review this restaurant negatively, you must be either out of your mind, out of your price range, or from out of state. Like the Hawaiin's us Mainers liked "The Way Life USED To Be". I have never been disappointed with the meals our the superior service at this little gem of a restaurant.

    Disturbed Sleep

    from

    We stayed in room 6 which, unfortunately, was directly above the swinging doors belonging to the kitchen area. The doors were banging until 1 am and started up at 6:30am (even after a phone call at 1am to the front desk asking them to keep the doors open so they wouldn't awaken me in the morning!). The room was small and the tv was inconveniently located. The bed and amenities were very nice, however. I probably wouldn't stay there again - too expensive for what you get and don't every stay in rooms 6, 7, or 8 (all are above those swinging, banging kitchen doors!!).
