What we liked most:The central location and the gorgeous grounds, landscaped by the company founded by Frederick Law Olmsted.

What we liked least:The room, with its dark paneling, polyester bedspread, and institutional carpet.

What surprised u:sWe spotted not one monk the whole weekend. (Then again, we didn't enter the monastery.)

You know you're at the Franciscan Guest House when . . .A stroll takes you to saints, shrines, and the Kennebunk River.

Rates: Through Sept. 5, rooms $80-$134, multiroom suites $134-$249. Off-season rates are lower.
