This is our second summer to stay here. We love their loft rooms. We easily slept 5 people. The breakfast is good and it is located very close to where we go tubing on the Saco River. We will be back next year!

We stayed in the 2nd fl of the Barn, a loft room with three very, very comfortable Q beds, one full bathroom and an additional sink on the second floor. I couldn't get over how clean everything was! This is not a brand new facility by any means, but during our entire stay, I only saw a single cob web! Huge accolades to the cleaning crew and… Read more
We stayed in the 2nd fl of the Barn, a loft room with three very, very comfortable Q beds, one full bathroom and an additional sink on the second floor. I couldn't get over how clean everything was! This is not a brand new facility by any means, but during our entire stay, I only saw a single cob web! Huge accolades to the cleaning crew and room inspectors! Direct access to the river on the backside of the accommodations was UBER convenient! This property is a complete treasure, and the staff are as friendly as anyone would hope to find in an overworked summer pace, where many businesses are short-staffed. Breakfast, however, was a hot mess as the kitchen manager was not there for our three day stay (returned the morning we departed), so the staff-schedule was affected, creating a massive backlog in service as well as running out of bacon each of the mornings we stayed (brkfst served 8-10am, and by 9:15, they're running out of key features); also the same scrambled eggs or pancakes offered 3 days in a row. On our departure-day, when the kitchen mgr returned, it was choice of southern sausage gravy over biscuits, eggs benedict, fresh fruit-filled crepes -always with real home fries (excellent). The main server with the purple hair (who was called into work on her day off, by the way!) had truly impeccable customer service no matter what she faced (disgruntled patrons, food shortage, backed-up tables with no help in the kitchen, etc.) At one point, one of the guests got up from eating with her family to assist this amazing employee clear and wipe down several tables just so others could be seated. When she returned to see what was done for her, she was stunned, urging the guest to return to her family. These are all HARD working people, deserving a mountain of praise for jobs well done. Peak season can be so stressful; we were grateful to find such a beautiful place (fresh-baked cookies every afternoon ... NICE touch!) and hope the staff who are pulling the weight are well-reimbursed. Our family thanks you for providing us with as enjoyable a stay as was possible under the straining circumstances.

We stayed at the Merrill Farm Inn during a hiking vacation through New England. The Inn had every thing we needed; a nice big room, free breakfasts (real freshly cooked ones with bacon and eggs and pancakes), friendly and helpful staff, swimming pool, and access to the river.
