"Maine: An Explorer's Guide":
"What a treasure! This is an exquisite house, dating back to 1775 but with an elegant Federal facade. It retains all its original woodwork and working fireplaces (in two of the five guest rooms as well as in common rooms), and the stenciling in the front hall is thought to be by Moses Eaton. Brits Peter and Jan Davidson have restored all the original detailing and furnished the house with appropriate antiques but kept things simple and graceful.
The two upstairs front rooms and one downstairs (the former North Parlor) are classically proportioned; a smaller downstairs room (The Library) overlooks the marshes. The Attic Room with exposed beams has two doubles plus a ladder up to a Victorian sleeping bunk - good for a family. The sitting room is comfortably furnished, fitted with books and games, and there is a piano by the fireplace in the dining room. A full breakfast is served, but guests have access to the kitchen as well as outdoor grills for other meals. The owners live in the adjoining cottage and share use of their outdoor pool. The 100 acre property includes gardens (and) hiking trails.."Blue Skye is awarded a blue-ribbon symbol indicating combined quality and moderate prices.
