We stayed at the Old Saco Inn while visiting our nephew who was performing nearby. What a great choice. As we drive down the long long driveway we were stunned by the stand of tall white pines that reached the sky, with narrow trunks and little bunches of pine needles at their tops. The gardens were beautiful and the laws plush. Then we went in. Wow! Charming hosts who have just the right touch with decorating. It wasn't cutesy and didn't have signs everywhere warning you not to do this or that. The decor was understated and coordintaed without making you want to throw all the pillows out the window and run. There were pillows, but they didn't cover fully half of the bed. There was a comforter and yummy feeling linens, but nothing was ruffly or just too much. Our one regret was having to leave without breakfast, but after the place was filled with the aroma of the scones that had just come out of the oven. We had a date with our nephew down the road and had to meet him early. We had a wonderful cup of coffeee and got on about our business. We are looking forward to next summer's visit - and those scones
This was our first stay at the Inn. The two owners are new and still trying to get a hand on everything, however, they seem to be doing a pretty good job so far. I can only imagine it will get better with time. It was very peaceful and quiet. Well taken care of grounds will a lazy river right next to it. Breakfast was big and very good. Place is pretty and very well decorated. Owners were very nice and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

My hubby and I were at Old Saco Inn for his 60th birthday celebration. The inn and it's grounds were really beautiful. Bruce and Jon were welcoming hosts, and our room had a great view of the gorgeous lawn.
Our breakfasts were diverse, creative, and downright yummy. We had two dinners..both excellent.
We felt "at home' during our stay, and would return in a snap!
The Old Saco Inn is special, no doubt about it. 7 miles outside of Fryeburg, in a peaceful setting with hosts, Bruce and Jon going out of their way to make everyone feel at home and able to RELAX, I went with friends for a celebration and we barbequed the first night we arrived, eating in a screened porch (Maine is buggy in June but the property is sprayed and all of the rooms are screened) and then joining our hosts and their friends for marsh mellow roasting around a roaring campfire. Jon makes fantastic breakfasts! Not to be missed...Dinner is served Thursday-Saturday and the menu looked wonderful which we perused in their cosy bar. Free use of kayaks for a lark down the river at the bottom of the property which is set well back from the road.
