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.

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!


Beautiful, memorable, and well worth the $

My husband and I recently enjoyed a fantastic stay at Maple Hill Farm. Plush robes, beautifully maintained room, jacuzzi under the stars, and delicious breakfast made the stay absolutely wonderful. We also really enjoyed the tour of the Inn and were made to feel so welcome. We checked out llbean in Freeport while we were there and Augusta Maine isn't too far away either. Fabulous five star spot!!!


Rare Gem

What an amazing find for our trip back East to see the Fall colors. It was the highlight of our trip and the best of the 4 Bed & Breakfast Inns we stayed at in various places. Vince and Scott were amazing hosts and there is nothing they haven't thought of. The rooms, beds and grounds are immaculate and it was so much fun watching the animals. Breakfast was made to order and excellent. They made it very easy to get to town for lunch and dinner or anywhere else you wanted to explore. One could walk the grounds or relax outside with a good book. We enjoyed our first stay on our way to Canada so much that we booked a room for our return drive to Boston. There wasn't anywhere else we could imagine staying. Both my husband and I highly recommend this charming and fun place to stay!


Beautiful and quiet!

A great find so close to augusta, Maine

Attention to detail is the key to the success of this inn and the innkeepers certainly know how to attend to the detail. The green credentials, the excellent facilities, great rooms are complemented by a warm friendly welcome, an amazing breakfast cooked fresh to order using eggs from the freely roaming chickens on site. We only booked into this as an overnight stop in transit, but we will be sure to make it our destination when we are next in Maine!


By far, the best lodging experience I've ever had

5 on October 01, 2014

If I'm ever in Augusta, Maine again, Maple Hill is where I'm staying. The rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was absolutely amazing, the free desserts were excellent for midnight snacks and tea, and the hot tub provided excellent relief from the day's work! Scott and Vince have an excellent place and you won't be disappointed if you stay at Maple Hill!


Great place for weddings and accommodations

5 on October 01, 2014

this was the second family wedding we held at Maple Hill Farms Bed and Breakfast and in both cases we had a wonderful time and our guests all enjoyed staying at the Inn. The rooms, facilities, food and service are top notch. I would recommend anyone choosing Maple Hill Farm for an event or just a weekend stay !

Beautiful country setting, peaceful yet close to throughway, yet far enough away not to know it !


Charming B&B in the August ME area

5 on August 23, 2014

This was my third stay at the Maple Hill Farm B & B. It's like coming home! There is always something new, this year we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and sauna - awesome at the end of the day. The rooms are decorated beautifully and are immaculate. Scott and Vince are outstanding innkeepers and this will always be my favorite destination in the Augusta Maine area.


Soothing in Augusta Maine

What a restful inn. So quiet that we were surprised to see many other guests at the delicious, made to order breakfast. The innkeepers are charming and love spoiling their guests. Somehow they make every guest feel as if the Maple Hill Farm is a private estate with a superb staff.I asked why the rates were so low for such a great place and the response was that the inn was doing well financially and there was no need to charge the guests more! So refreshing to find this attitude just a few miles from the center of Augusta.
