If antiquing is your idea of a great way to spend a balmy Spring day, then our special "April Is For Antique Lovers" promotion is perfect for you! Bev and I have personally selected the best antique dealers in this area to participate, and they are offering our guests a 10% discount from their listed prices, providing you pay by cash or check (the cost of processing credit cards is so high!).
We have tried to offer you a wide selection — from group shops, collectable dealers and fine period dealers, to one of the largest antique dealerships in New England. You'll find furniture, lighting, glass, china, paintings, toys, tools, and so much more. Whether you're interested in country Colonial, fine French, Victorian, or other periods, you're sure to find plenty to interest you in these establishments.
All of these dealers are either right on Rte. 1, or just off the highway in one of the nearby towns. And all are within a 1/2 - 3/4 hour drive from the Mansion, making this a perfect way to spend a leisurely day. Don't forget to complete the experience by stopping along the way to enjoy a genuine Maine lobster roll and perhaps a glass of one of our delicious, locally-brewed Maine beers.
Over the years, as Bev and I have continually upgraded and redecorated the Mansion's rooms, we have relied on several of these dealers to supply us with many of the handsome antiques you find in your room, and throughout the inn. The photo you see here is Excelsior, just one of our beautifully-appointed rooms. Call for our special April antiquing rates, and — happy hunting!
