Harraseeket Inn- Freeport Maine

Did you ever wonder where that perfect New England Inn is. You know the one that you see in movies or on those beautiful Television ads. Well Iíve found it... not only has this Inn all the ambience one could imagine in an New England Inn, it is definitely accessible!! The Inn is the Harraseeket Inn on Main street in Freeport Maine. Now you might know Freeport Maine for its shopping and most especially L.L. Beans but now you will know it for the Harraseeket Inn. The Innkeepers the Gray Family and are just wonderful warm folks who make you feel right at home and then some.

Itís hard to know how to describe this 80+ room Inn with its Fine dining room, fantastic morning buffet breakfast, accessible indoor swimming pool, roll in showers in the Handicapped room etc.

What I can tell you though is not to miss morning coffee severed in the drawing room, or afternoon tea again served in the drawing room.

The Handicapped rooms are well laid out with good area to move around, wheel in showers and all the amenities, cable TV, Air Conditioning etc. The indoor pool though small is very adequate and it has an accessible lift and the water is nice plus warm, as you can see I tried out the lift and the water on several occasions. The Harraseeket Innís access for wheelchairs is from the backyard which is also the main parking area and you will find an expansive flowered gardens and well manicured lawns.

Chip Gray ,the owners son, who works hand and hand with his Mum at the Inn, would be glad to take you for a little fishing trip on his accessible fishing boat.

The Harraseeket Inn in Freeport Maine has the warmth, charm , hospitality and most of all accessibility.

How to build a Fly Rod, cooking small game, outdoor survival and so much more. You can find out more information about the Discovery Adventure schools by contacting LL Beans 1-800-341-4341

When speaking to many guests at the Harraseeket Inn I found that this was a return visit for most and the just rave about the Inn. It is only a block away from the shopping that Freeport is renown for and yet The Harraseeket Inn is a quiet oasis in the turbulence of life.

The Harraseeket Inn also would be a marvelous place for a weddings with a new reception room as well as lovely gardens at the back.

The Harraseeket Inn also provides meeting rooms. What a spot to have a corporate retreat!!!.
