    This is a top quality facility you'll find nowhere else, Mr.Kaskel has graciously turned the unused rooms in his mansion into shelter beds for those down on their luck. The amenities include: Plenty of street parking for campers and vans etc. Pool Billiard table Jacuzzi New clean clothes Full service laundry Gourmet kitchen fully staffed They staff is very understanding of addiction and there is no judging here. Ive been here for 6 weeks and Mr.Kaskel is personally helping me with my alcohol addiction. This place is like family. There's always a room and theres always a smile. Note - sometimes the gate will be closed as there is a part-time therapy dog on the property. Just hop over and ask for Paul or Brent. Tell them Salmon sent you.

    Fantastic shelter, staff is wonderful. Make sure to stay away from the Janitor Paul, though- the boy is no good. Food is wonderful, Tease your taste buds with some wicked food appetizers or go straight for one of their yummy fried seafood plates or platters. All must try their authentic lobster roll served the real way or go for their award-winning New England clam chowder. Anyways great place (except for paul).
