Escapes: The Bridge House B&B in South Bristol, Maine

Architect Dianne Haas, of Taylor Haas Studio, sent me a note this week about her newly refurbished B&B , The Bridge House B&B, in a quaint fishing village in South Bristol, Maine.

When she purchased the property twelve years ago, the house was literally falling into the river. She did some quick fixes, opened an ice cream shop inside, and used it here and there for a bit. Two years ago, Dianne decided to move up there practically full time to get the project finished once and for all. Today it has two charming guest rooms, a fabulous living area and kitchen in which you can book private dinners with local, organic food, and a design shop, complete with freshly squeezed lemonade and a design library. It’s truly charming.

  1. Lovely. That’s exactly how a cottage in Maine should look, I think.
