A Rise And Shine Bed and Breakfast is the former home of the America's historic Woolworth family, of five and dime store fame.  It is a lovingly restored and elegant eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom home  with a large  farmer's porch, an outdoor dining patio covered with a permanent structure awning for rain and shine events, and a gardened patio  overlooking Lake Cobbossee.    The main house has spacious rooms,  including a library, informal breakfast room, formal dining rooms, game/music room, art gallery/tea room,  a restored  fifties kitchen, and butlerís pantry.  In addition, there is a separate two bedroom Carriage House.

 

Sit down or Buffet Dining on the Spacious Gardened Patio 



The home is serenely settled amongst acres of  spectacular New England woodland, woods paths, meadow, grazing pastures,  and lake views.  It is not only a home away from home for visitors,  but our guests may board their horses overnight in our adjoining stables/barns. 

We overlook Lake Cobbossee, Maine's third largest lake - which has its own lighthouse!     Guests may swim, fish, or boat.  You may bring your own,  or rent pontoons, canoes, or kayaks nearby and enter the Lake from the public boat launch (1.5 miles).    

Our acreage is nature-rich and a tribute to the beauty of rural Maine.  Guests may laze and gaze anywhere on the property, and will easily sight such wonders as the bald eagle, red fox, deer, moose, beaver,  hummingbirds, swallows, butterflies, hawks, loons, etc.   You may tour the gardens, walk the woods paths, fish/swim/boat and/or hunt for wildflowers or berries amongst the acreage.  (Any good amount of berries brought home is  rewarded with a berry pie!!)

The two barns and stables are the site of Hollywood movies related to horses,  and townsfolk talk of this gracious home as a vacation retreat for many Hollywood stars, notably Martin Sheen, Raymond Burr, and Tom Cruise.    The parties were major events in this small New England town.
