Maple Hill Farm Bed & Breakfast Inn

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

About

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

You'll feel at home!!

I brought my mother and her friend for a night out in Hallowell and had decided to stay in town at this bed and breakfast. We were immediately greeted by Scott (one of the owners) and had such a good laugh from start to finish. He is so personable and makes you feel right at home (he makes the best cosmo!!). My mom even went downstairs in the dark for a piece of cake late at night and made herself comfortable. The breakfast was delicious (mom still says those were the best eggs she's ever had!) and the views of the farm in the morning were absolutely beautiful. This bed and breakfast didn't miss a detail!! I will definitely go there again!


Best Bed & Breakfast

Staying at the Maple Hill Inn was a lovely experience. Everyone was very nice, and the breakfast in the morning was delicious. I wish I was able to stay longer. I would highly recommend the Maple Hill Farm Bed & Breakfast Inn.


Charming B & B

5 on January 12, 2016

The rooms are lovely with a variety of furniture reminiscent of the old farm house that was converted to make this charming B & B. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The gas 'wood stove' kept us nice and warm and the large jacuzzi bath tub was relaxing. Loved that there was a choice for breakfast instead of everyone having to eat the same thing. There was always hot tea and coffee available along with chocolate chip cookies, apples. The Innkeepers are friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our excursion into Hallowell, a part of Maine we had never seen before, and their recommendations for dining were very helpful. Looking forward to another trip to Maple Hill in the future and hopefully we'll get to try the outdoor hot tub and sauna on our next trip!


Theatre and sight-seeing

4.8 on November 13, 2015

I have stayed at Maple Hill B & B for about eight years, while attending the theatre productions at the Theatre at Monmouth. The B & B is a reasonable and scenic distance from Monmouth. Also, a few minutes drive to Augusta and Lewiston. The owners and staff at Maple Hill have always most hospitable and generous with service and extras, e.g., snacks. I will certainly stay there again, and have recommended it to others.


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

3.6 on November 05, 2015

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.


Best of the Best

We had our wedding at Maple Hill Farm a few weeks ago. This was our dream venue. Every inch of this place was beautiful and immaculate. The front lawn was perfect for the ceremony and the reception hall was just gorgeous. Scott and Vince were the perfect hosts and took so much pressure off the planning. For our guests that stayed at the Inn, they raved about the breakfast and homemade snacks for a special treat. The suites are so nice. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing at Maple Hill. Thanks guys, you made our wedding a fairytale. - Jeff Rediker


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

5 on June 07, 2015

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

Custom Cooked Breakfast
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). You can have pancakes with wild Maine blueberries and real Maine maple syrup from the great north woods, or french toast, oatmeal, cold cereals, fresh fruit, juice, and muffins cooked fresh each morning. Whatever your pleasure, we'll create breakfast just the way you want it.
