The moment you park in the driveway, the stress will begin to melt away. Walking in through the flower covered trellis and onto the front patio that is carefully accented with flowers, the aroma melts away another layer of stress. You are on vacation. Through the entry way and into the dining room the welcome basket awaits, perched on the table beneath the beautiful wood clad cathedral ceiling. The welcome basket is made up of local candies, blueberry pancake mix, dog treats and a sampling from one of the local breweries. Now it's time to enjoy the basket as you continue to explore Acadia Acres.
