The Best Breakfasts

5 on June 30, 2014

A wonderful B&B in Freeport, walking distance from LL Bean and other outlet stores and great restaurants. We loved our room with comfortable bed, big bathroom, and nice sitting area. The breakfasts were the best we have had at a B&B! Each morning (we were there 3 days) there was French Pressed coffee brought to the table, juice, a fresh fruit cup, an entree and an egg dish (different each day). Every afternoon Mary put out delicious cookies. Scott and Mary were very good about suggesting area sights to visit. The Inn is convenient to Portland and Bath.

Innkeeper Response
Boy, I wish we could spend some time at place like that!! Seriously, we're thrilled you has such a great escape! Yours, Scott & Mary

Delightful stay in Freeport

5 on June 26, 2014

Delicious breakfast. Beautiful and very comfortable room with gracious hosts. I loved the rocking chairs on the back porch for my early morning reading and meditation. Scott has excellent suggestions for a scenic back road route to a great place for dinner out on Pemaquid Point right on the water. Wonderful relaxing stay!

Innkeeper Response

Perfect Wedding Stay

5 on June 18, 2014

We rented the entire B and B for our family and friends to stay the weekend of our son's wedding. The innkeepers and owners were so helpful and welcoming our stay was wonderful. We arranged a catered post-rehearsal BBQ that was held on the back lawn for our friends and family (~ 40 people) and the owners were great. We could not have done this without their helpful suggestions and advice. This historic inn is immaculate and the breakfast meals are simply the best. The innkeepers truly care about their guests as if they were family. We look forward to staying here on our return trips to Freeport.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for renting our home for this special event in your family's life, we were grateful to be part of it! Further, thanks for taking the time to write this, as I know it takes thought and time from your life. We can't wait to host you guys again, you were a "bucket of fun!"

A Touch of Class
