Conveniently located in the heart of Freeport, Maine, Nicholson Inn offers all the amenities a traveller could desire. A Freeport landmark since 1925, Nicholson Inn has a long tradition of hospitality. Norman and Martha Nicholson acquired this elegant building in the 1930's, and through the '40s and '50s it became a synonym for warmth and welcome. Now the Nicholson's granddaughter Jane and her husband Alden are carrying on that tradition. Working with love and respect for the Inn's architectural integrity, the Grants have updated, renovated and modernized the facility, giving carefull thought to providing the maximum amount of comfort and convenience their guests could require.

Six of us traveled together and the inn has lots of places for us to hang out together. The host and hostess were fantastic! Loads of fun and great food. Can't wait to go back.

Great location, extremely comfortable room, and wonderful touring advice. We would never have found Dolphin Marina and Restaurant on our own, and they have the BEST lobster roll. Very friendly and we hope to return!

My daughter and I luckily found a room at this Inn mid-week, and had a wonderful our first experience at a B&B. They will be the standard we judge all others by, and we both feel that will be a hard act to follow. The antique ambiance is a joy and fits the house and location perfectly. History handed down and appreciated, cared for with obvious love and respect. The updates they have done , like the private baths for each room, make guests comfortable and provide privacy. Our late night foray to LL Bean's wasn't meant to disturb anyone else in the house, and it seems it did not. The coupon for dinner at the Jameson Tavern encouraged us to enjoy a fine dinner that we may not have otherwise availed ourselves to. And Abacus, across the street, sent us on our way with some truly unique purchases and many ideas for encouraging creative recycling. Breakfast was elegantly set for the 10 of us and served in a style that made us all feel welcomed. Going away from the table hungry did not seem like an option! When we are in the area again we will go back for another stay with Jane, Alden, and their adorable labrador, Neil.

We always stay at The Nicholson Inn when we are in the Freeport area. Jane & Alden's warm hospitality, beautifully decorated rooms and most comfortable beds guarantee a wonderful stay every time! Not to mention the gourmet breakfasts! The Inn's location is perfect for easy shopping of the outlets and also only minutes from great walking trails in the woods leading to the ocean. A special find!

Rooms were clean and beautifully decorated with L. L. Bean linens. Our host and hostess were charming and became instant friends. The breakfast of eggs benedict was absolutely delicious. This is a great place to stay. We shall return.

Three days of hard sea kayaking was rewarded each day with a revitalizing stay at the inn. Starting with a great breakfast and concluding with a comfortable deep sleep. All in the center of Freeport!
