 A Rise And Shine Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place for an overnight stay. Surrounded by the classic beauty of rural Maine it boasts quality  and reasonably priced public golf courses  very nearby:   Springbrook Golf Club in Leeds, Cobbossee Colony Golf Club in Monmouth, The Meadows Golf Club in Litchfield, Belgrade Lakes Golf Club in Belgrade are just a few.  It's a great place to have a reception, reunion, retreat, a workshop or a class.  We are in the lake region of Maine and overlook Lake Cobbossee.  Near  Augusta, and Winthrop, and across from  Kippewa girls camp and Cobbossee Boys camp in Monmouth, Androscoggin camp in Wayne, Vega Camp in Fayette, and Camp Laurel in Kents Hill.   We are  less than a half hour drive from Lewiston/Auburn,  and the Waterville area.  Colby, Bowdoin, Bates College are nearby. We are within an hour's drive from the coast and a half hour to Freeport and L.L. Bean. 

We overlook Lake Cobbossee in the lake region of central Maine, an area offering boating, swimming, fishing, antique and outlet shopping, museums, theater, Maine crafting, hiking, trail riding, etc.    Enjoy the outdoor hot tub under the stars or hike trails and pick berries.  Here, you can do lots or nothing at all!   

The estate was once the home of the Woolworth family (of five and dime store fame) and in the mid 1900's was a gentlemen's racehorse farm of Norman Woolworth, Jr. This gracious home has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur and designed for comfort.   Eight uniquely decorated and themed  spacious guestrooms have  private baths.  We also have a private guest carriage house  with two bedrooms, full kitchen and living quarters.  

We offer "down home"  hospitality in a relaxed country environment, surrounded by the classic natural beauty of Maine. Writers and artists will be inspired by our rural beauty and spectacular view over Lake Cobbossee.  Those who need a mini vacation will be sated.  Business travelers will find their stay a welcome change from the typical and predictable commercial accommodations.   

Those who plan special events will find our home spacious, warm, and welcoming.  The spectacular view over lake Cobbossee from the bed and breakfast gardens, patio,  and guestrooms provide the backdrop for your perfect get-a-way. wedding, re-vowing, or committal ceremony. Book the entire Inn for your guests traveling from afar, and use the Inn's grounds as the setting for your special day. Let us help make your celebration unforgettable!  We cater by arrangement.
