InnKeepers Add A Delightful Charm to Cozy B & B
su luglio 03, 2015
After reading many reviews on B & Bs, our decision was made to stay here based off reviews about the family that runs this inn. Tori and Robin gave us a warm welcome and definitely made us feel at home. It takes alot of work and preparation to make an inn run well, yet the processes here are seamless. The InnKeepers are able to take care of all their guests needs and still have time to converse with everyone. Both Innkeepers are knowledgeable of the area, taking time to listen to what their guests like to do before offering suggestions. The rooms are very clean (a must) and each seem to have their own vibe. My family had two rooms that were next to each other and were situated in the back of the B &B. The green room was my favorite. Our rooms were nicely decorated and had all the amenities we needed for our stay. Tori and Robin did check on the room daily supplying whatever we needed. The breakfasts were well planned and the menus are adapted to vegan, gluten free, among other requests. My husband is a meat and potato type and my daughter is a foodie. They each really liked the breakfast offerings each morning. Their James Place Inn coffee blend was just what was needed to start the day. There is a small nook containing books about the area, utensils, glasses for wine and beer in the hallway just outside the sunroom. They have an ice machine, a small refrigerator along with hot water for tea throughout the day in the sunroom where breakfasts are served. Tori and Robin are very generous with with their time and find ways to go out of their way to make your stay relaxing. This was my husband's first B & B and was wary at first until he met Robin and Tori. Often we do not go back to the same place, but this Inn is a must on our list because of the family that runs the Inn. A very calming environment, great place to walk since the inn is located near the main stores and restaurants.
Great winter retreat in Freeport
su gennaio 20, 2015
My wife and I escaped to Freeport before baby #2 arrives and we had a wonderful time. From the warm greeting, to the wonderful breakfasts and the exceptional service of recommending and making our dinner reservations, I'd highly recommend the James Place Inn. I'm sure we'll be back!
Best place to stay in Freeport
su giugno 19, 2014
I have been staying at the James Place Inn at least once a year for the past five years. It is the best place to stay in the area. Located just a block from the main shopping area of Freeport, Inn is on a quiet side street. As such, you can easily walk to all the shops and restaurants in down town Freeport, but still get a great night's sleep. It has easy access to I-295 and is only about 20 minutes from downtown Portland.
The house is beautiful, with Adirondack chairs, a hammock and a nice deck for just relaxing outside and reading a book. Rooms are tastefully decorated, have great beds, and many have whirlpool style tubs. My favorite rooms are the Rose room (if traveling alone) and the Green room (if traveling with someone special). I frequently stay here after long bike rides (such as this past weekend's Trek Across Maine) and the Rose room downright has the best soaking tub I have ever been in. The green room's bright airy feel and view of the yard are its highlights.
Speaking of breakfast the food is amazing. For starters every day there is yogurt, homemade granola, and cut fruit. In addition, there is a new baked item every day. My personal favorite are the raspberry scones. Then there is a selection of hot foods every day. This usually includes a frittata or two, pancakes or waffles, quiche, and some kind of breakfast meat. Occasionally, you will also be treated to Robyn's homemade baked beans. When you return from your day out fresh baked cookies and tea will be waiting for you in the sun room. You will not be hungry.
But the best part of the James Place Inn are the family who run it. Robyn, Tori and their daughter Elyse, are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are very personable and really try to make sure everyone of their guests has the best experience possible. They are very knowledgeable on things to do in the area. I always look forward to my trips north and am already thinking of my next trip to the James Place Inn.

Enjoyed an off season stay for our baby-moon. Robin, the Inn keeper, is fantastically hospitable and an amazing cook. We really enjoyed our room and the cozy fire. Walkability to town was so close that we even ventured out on a very cold and blustery day. Definitely plan to return as soon as we can get another getaway!
A Wonderful Long Weekend
su gennaio 22, 2014
After a nearly 5 hr drive in a snowstorm, we were warmly welcomed by Robin - who guided us painlessly through the check-in and brought us to our choice for the next 2 nights: the Pine Room! A good sized guest room, queen bed and rollaway for our grown daughter, and the much appreciated fireplace (stocked and match ready as advertised!) The bathroom was a bit tight - something that is being addressed right now, as we were told of the renovations being made upon our departure! Breakfasts were awesome! Over the 2 days we were treated to homemade cookies (available upon arrival and throughout the day), an incredible coffee blend (specific to the Inn itself, you HAVE to buy some to bring home - so delicious); baked goods of scones and a coffee cake to knock your socks off (I need that recipe); a quiche filled with leeks and bacon; frittatas....cheese and meats and veggies (yum)....blueberry pancakes, and the BEST homemade cinnamon french toast ever!! there was homemade granola, yogurt and fresh fruit!! sorry if i missed anything - it was all delicious! Torey and Robin could not do enough to make our stay the BEST - our daughter was a bit under the weather the first night- they were more than gracious in helping us through that and we cannot thank them enough!! Definitely a "2 thumbs up".... we will be returning! Thank you so much for an outstanding weekend....Gene,Sharon and Sarah Leahy - Cape Cod MA
Perfect Anniversary Lodging!
su ottobre 22, 2013
We recently returned from a trip to New England and the James Place Inn was an amazing place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this charming, clean and very well-kept bed and breakfast. The hosts, Robin and Tori, were outstanding. They were helpful, friendly, thoughtful and cooked a delicious, full breakfast. We loved Tori's homemade granola too! We lodged in the yellow room and found it to be delightful - we especially loved the two-person jacuzzi! Would definitely recommend this B&B!
Des hôtes en or
su settembre 13, 2013
Tori et Robin sont des hôtes exceptionnels. Attentionnés et sympathiques, nous nous sommes sentis chez nous dès notre arrivée. Ce B&B est bien situé si vous désirez explorer plus au nord vers Brunswick ou Bath ou faire des escapades vers Portland et prendre un bateau en excursion. Ce n'est qu'à 15 ou 20 minutes de route. Freeport en soi n'est qu'un endroit pour magasiner. Mais à chaque retour et à chaque déjeuner (5 jours) chez James Place Inn, c'était le bonheur. Les meilleurs déjeuners du Maine. En fait, presque un brunch. Robin est un chef hors pair. Tout est cuisiné maison et c'est un pur délice presque avec une touche du Québec. Home sweet home, sans le flafla décor empoussiéré typique de beaucoup de B&B du Maine. Nous y retournerons sans hésiter.
No Need to Look Anymore!
su luglio 11, 2013
My husband and I have been back from our stay at the James Place Inn for four days and I think we are both still full from Robin's amazing breakfasts. Tori and Robin welcomed us into their bed and breakfast, creating breakfast from the freshest and finest ingredients, designing a relaxing room, and offering suggestions on places to visit while in the Freeport area. Even before we arrived at the James Place Inn, Tori was communicating with my husband, offering suggestions on how to make our anniversary weekend one to remember. My husband is still raving about Robin's talents in the kitchen and the special blend coffee that we enjoyed each morning. Tori and Robin made my husband and I feel as though we were the only couple staying with them for the weekend, when in actuality, they were filled to capacity. If you are in search for the perfect B&B in the Freeport area, let this be the last review you read. You will not find a better place to stay!
Simply the Best
su febbraio 10, 2013
I am woefully late in writing this review, but had to let everyone know this B&B is the BEST!!! My husband and I stayed here last summer. We had booked for a few days and loved it so much that we returned after driving north over night. Tori and Robin are the ultimate hosts. My husband was dealing with the aftermath of a brain injury and stroke and they were so kind! Their breakfasts are FABULOUS, but when he was cantankerous they fixed him a simple breakfast of his choice. Their sweet daughter Elyse made him her special scrambled eggs, which he loved. Robin helped me map out driving trips that hubby would enjoy and encouraged me to take advantage of the great adventure tours at LL Bean while hubby rested at the inn. I can't say enough about this wonderful experience. Spotless, comfortable rooms; unbelievable , delicious breakfasts; kind, wonderfully helpful, knowledgeable hosts...SIMPLY THE BEST!
