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 for meetings and intimate weddings, and the Gathering Place event center attached to the rear of the Inn is available for larger business and social events.

Weekend Getaway

5 on March 26, 2014

Loved this place!!!! Have already recommended to several friends and planning on returning again soon. Scott and Vince were exceptional hosts. Loved the breakfast that was included the next day. Was made to feel right at home. Could not find one thing to complain about. My only disappointment was that I did not know about this place sooner as I would have loved to have got married here.


A great place to stay, even for locals!

Although we live in Augusta, which is only a few minutes away, I decided to get a room for Valentine's Day (a stay-cation!). We were impressed by the friendly, easy-going service, the cozy room (private whirlpool tub was so relaxing, bed was very comfortable), and the delicious breakfast in the morning (I wanted to try everything on the menu but I got a simple bacon and eggs plate which was really tasty). We used the sauna briefly, which was quite new and beautiful and clean, although I do prefer wood-fired saunas in general (theirs is electric which is more cost-effective because they have solar and wind power). It still got plenty hot! I just like being able to put water on the woodstove for the steam (a big no-no for electric!). We didn't use the hot tub because we had the whirlpool tub in the bedroom, but another couple we talked to said it was great. Overall, this was an outstanding stay and quite affordable, considering what you get, the fact that they are super-green, and the beautiful premises. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Hallowell or Augusta, and I will probably stay there again at some point.

As always, friendly and a very peaceful play to stay. Two deer in the field, completing the pastoral view when I arrived after dark.


So much better than a hotel!

My husband and I were concerned about the privacy level of staying at a bed and breakfast but chose to take the chance because of the many amenities Maple hill farm had to offer. We were not disappointed at all. From the moment we arrived we felt as though we were in our own home, Scott was so welcoming, giving us a tour, and explaining how Maple Hill Farm functions. We never felt as though we were being hovered over though. Along with the wonderful amenities listed on their website there were many other personal touches in our room when we arrived to make us feel special, chocolates, homemade soaps, free deserts,and bath salts to name a few. Though it is located a heartbeat away from Augusta, Maine you truly feel as though you are in the county. I don't even have time to get into Scott's drinks from the bar or Vince's farm fresh breakfast :) 5 star stay. We can't wait to get back! ~ Randy and Rebecca
