There has been no 'trimming of amenities' here at White Cedar Inn! As a matter of fact, in picking up a secondary point in the article-cleanliness-we have just replaced all the carpet in the 4 guestrooms upstairs. (The Bowdoin's carpet was replaced in 2005.) And, so guests know, we don't wash your drinking glasses in the bathroom sink, everything goes into the dishwasher for a sanitize cycle. And the blankets, quilts and mattress pads are washed on a regular basis, in hot water and using bleach. (Sheets, of course, are changed for every guest!)
So, what's free here that the big name hotels are charging you for?
- A full, sit down breakfast (no buffet lines here!)
- Coffee and tea whenever you want it
- Afternoon cookies or cake
- Concierge services such as boarding pass printing and restaurant reservations
- Loaner laptop
- Morning newspaper
The more the hotels trim, the more value there is in staying in a B and B where the owners are on hand to insure you are greeted with a smile and treated like good friends come for a visit. We hope to see you soon...don't forget your complimentary cookies and tea when you check-in!
