Maple Hill Farm Bed & Breakfast Inn

11 Inn Road (off the Outlet Road), Augusta, ME 04347 USA (Show map)


Maine's first certified "Environmental Leader" green lodging establishment (2004) and "One of 30 Great U.S. Inns" (Travel+Leisure, 2002) both aptly describe our unique combination of pampered service for relaxing getaways or business travel combined with our barnyard menagerie of llamas, pony, goats, sheep, cow, and many chickens. Featuring the largest solar electric array in Maine plus solar hot water and a wind turbine, this fully restored 1906 gambrel Victorian farmhouse (major renovations completed in 2001) is far back from the public road on many acres of unspoiled rural beauty, yet just minutes to Hallowell's National Historic District with unique shopping, great dining, and antiquing alongside the banks of the Kennebec River. You'll be greeted at the front desk made from a slab of historic Hallowell granite which once served as the front step to the farmhouse. Central to Maine's coast, lakes, and mountains (all within an easy hour's drive). Adjacent 600+ acre wildlife preserve provides a pristine pond for canoeing and trails for hiking or cross-country skiing. Our own free-range fresh eggs are featured in the full custom, cooked-to-order breakfast. Spacious antique furnished rooms have private baths, A/C, phones, TV, DVD/VCR, and individual temperature control. Four rooms have HUGE double whirlpool tubs, three have private decks, and five have gas fireplaces for the ultimate romantic getaway. The adjacent Carriage House, connected by the Porte Cochere, is ideal

Perfect in every way!

Absolutely wonderful facility. You are certainly made to feel at home here. Most interesting conversations with Vince- great guy- unfortunately did not have a chance to meet Scott. The breakfast is to die for- plus home baked deserts free for the taking! How much better can it get? Will be back- if passing through Augusta Maine I highly recommend! Cheers- B from Canada

What A Sweet Farm

We celebrated our 20th anniversary in Maine & stayed here one night. We very much enjoyed the town of Hallowell! The innkeepers were very attentive. The other guests were interesting to visit with in the evening. Champagne was available. Breakfast the following morning was delicious, especially the farm fresh eggs! The view from our room was like a New England postcard, with the rural landscape, red barn, and beautiful trees.

Fabulous Stay.

Absolutely the Best B&B by far. Scott and Vince are very accommodating. Wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend this, you will not even disappointed.

A Perfect Get Away

I enjoyed every minute of my visit at Maple Hill Farm. The front porch is the place to be with a view of the llamas and the company of busy birds. It would be worth the trip just to enjoy breakfast in the farm's comfortable breakfast room.

Great location

The location the nice, the innkeepers were great, and so was breakfast. I wish I had a reason to hang around more!

Great Expectations Exceeded!

The Maple Hill Farm B&B was lovely inside and out with gorgeous vista of the surrounding countryside. Scott and Vince were charming, gracious, and hospitable - making sure I had a great breakfast "to go", even though I had to leave before 7 a.m. My room ( #3) was tastefully appointed with every detail thought out - from a cozy chair with a reading lamp - to a luxurious bathrobe and beautiful bedding. And all at a very reasonable rate compared to other lodging options in the area. I would recommend Maple Hill to anyone staying in the area.

All the warmth and comforts of home!

I stay at the Maple Hill Farm Inn whenever I am in the Augusta Maine area with my family. My visits to the area have become more frequent so that I may look in on my aging mother. Due to allergies, my wife and daughter cannot remain more than a few hours in my mom's home since she has a cat. Maple Hill Farm Inn is the closest thing that we've found to the warmth of my mother's house and their country breakfast is delicious. Best of all, there are no dishes to do afterwards. My brother and sister in law joined us at the inn last weekend and were grateful for my recommendation.

Charming, low key and yet thoroughly modern

4.0 on January 23, 2015

My experiences with B&Bs have not been great, but Maple Hill Farm was a refreshing change. The room had all the amenities of a modern motel and perhaps even more, since the room had a DVD player, a CD player, and a bookshelf stocked with books that satisfied my more intellectual tastes in books. The bathroom was modern and supplied with handmade soap, along with the usual amentities. Extremely nice bathrobes were provided. A guest kitchen was available to reheat a dinner that I brought with me, along with providing tea, coffee, and sweets. The hot breakfast was excellent. The facility is very eco-friendly, with a wood pellet boiler and solar panels. The innkeepers were available but didn't hover. Alll in all, it was the best B&B I've stayed in. I didn't get a chance to use the sauna or hot tub, it being January in Maine. It was no more expensive than a hotel chain. My only complaint, and it's pretty minor, is that the room had less free floor space than usually found in a hotel room, and that made it feel a bit cramped. But I did stay in one of the least expensive rooms. All in all, I enjoyed the stay quite a bit and wouldn't hesitate to go back there or to recommend it to friends.

Comfortable and Cozy

We could not have picked a better place to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning. The house is beautiful and the rooms were even better. We stayed in room 8 and were blown away! You would have thought we were the only people staying in the house at how quiet it was! The owners were wonderful from the moment we checked in until the moment we checked out. They invited us to even spend time with them in the pub area playing cribbage. It was a home away from home experience and we cannot wait to go back.

Comfortable & Cozy!

A wonderful eco-friendly inn just outside August, Maine! Scott and Vincent are amazing hosts - helpful and friendly but not intrusive. Breakfast was yummy with native blueberries and warm maple syrup for our pancakes! What a fortunate find!

You can order whatever you'd like off the breakfast menu, including free-range eggs from the farm any way you like them, including coddled or even Eggs Benedict Arnold (Arnold launched his "bateaux" from Pittston, just across the Kennebec River from Hallowell, on his historic and ill-fated trip to Canada).
