Our First Maine Trip

5 on August 23, 2015

This was our first trip to Maine and Farmstead was our first B&B we stayed at. We stayed 2 nights in the gold room. The room was great. Jon was a great host and like others have said made some great pancakes! We'll be back for sure on our next trip to Maine!


Quaint place, kind hosts

Farmstead was quaint and conveniently located. Not fancy or luxurious but had everything we needed. John was kind and accommodating, and made delicious fruit and pancakes for us every morning.


Clean, quiet and comfortable

We has a wonderful stay for two nights in April. This is a great place to stay as it's central to many Southern NH east coast sites and shopping. Colonel, thank you for the hospitality, stories and great breakfast.


More than sufficient

I found very little wrong with Farmstead. The only complaint is that the shower was a little cramped, but if that's my biggest problem then there is no reason to complain. Great value overall.


Charming place that feels like home

4.6 on October 25, 2014

The hosts were friendly, the rooms reminded me of grandma's house, and the location is on a quiet farm in the midst of greenery and trees. I had the most restful sleep, and the blueberry pancakes are to die for! I would most definitely stay here again.


Fun and Comfort

Owners are excellent hosts/chefs and the Farmstead is very comfortable and close to all the things we love to do!


Best B & B ever

5 on October 11, 2014

Hosts were great, house and grounds were out of a picture post card. The home was decorated to a T. Wished I lived closer so I could go back time and time again

Had a wonderful visit!

We stayed at Farnstead for 2 nights and had a lovely time. The owners are such warm people and we felt very welcome there. John makes the best homemade pancakes (along with his homemade syrup), and he keeps you entertained during breakfast, it was so great!


Quaint, sweet people

If you are looking for a little quaint inn, this is it! No TV's but very comfy beds in a quiet setting. Innkeepers are such pleasant, helpful people.
