White Cedar Inn was wonderful

5 on July 01, 2013

We were blown away when we checked into White Cedar Inn. The house was gorgeous and Monica and Rock were so welcoming. They spent a lot of time talking to us and telling us about the local attractions. We felt like we were staying with friends and would not hesitate to go back.


A wonderful stay

I love the White Cedar Inn...this was my second stay and this time I brought one of my dogs...the dog room is GREAT! and extremely clean. They provided a bowl for water, doggy bags for cleanup detail, and a blanket just for her so that she could sleep on the bed with me...which was very insightful because even if I made her stay off the bed, she would have been up on the bed as soon as she knew that I was asleep. I highly recommend this wonderful B&B.


Perfect Family Getaway

4.6 on March 03, 2011

Our family spent 2 nights at the White Cedar Inn and had a fantastic time - Monica and Rock were so helpful and made us feel very welcome. When our rental car needed replacing they were very accommodating and made sure we knew that if we had to stay another night they would make room, they also gave us an update on which roads were closed due to snow (no something Australian's are used to thinking about). Overall this was one of the best places we stayed on our trip and we hope to make the long journey back one day.


Excellent stay at the White Cedar!!

Monica and Rock were wonderful, warm, and hospitable hosts. We had a cozy one night get-a-way in Freeport and they made it well worth it. They hosted Veterans for November 11, appreciating all they do for our country with a free night at their home. The breakfast was their Tuscan Eggs specialty, excellent! Loved the conversation and the coziness of their B & B, we will certainly be back again!!

This Rare Perfect Place On The Maine Coast Keeps Us Coming Back.

4.4 on July 06, 2010

This Rare Perfect Place On The Maine Coast Keeps Us Coming Back. We’ve enjoyed many “quickie” vacations at White Cedar Inn and find that after countless “OK” experiences at other New England and Canadian Bed and Breakfasts, Monica and Rock have got it just right. Cheerful and helpful, these hosts seem like family from the first hello. What to visit, where to go for a day’s adventure or firsthand knowledge of all the many eateries and fine restaurants in their region of coastal Maine. This year, as in the past, we sat in the Inn’s chairs at the curb and watched Freeport’s delightful small town Fourth of July parade. It made us smile, wave, clap and scamper for tossed candy tossed by beauty queens and marching Brownie Scouts. (I found out I wasn’t too old for scampering.) On our winter visits, there are no parades but plenty of exploration two blocks away at LL Bean’s campus of specialty stores. We think the White Cedar is the perfect “get-the-heck-away-for-a-few-days” place to stay.


Great Stay!

My husband and I stayed at the White Cedar Inn in September 2009 during our honeymoon. We stayed there for two nights an had a great experience! We arrived at the inn about 11:00 (too early to check-in) but were given many suggestions of how to spend the day. We toured Freeport and went on one of the LL Bean adventure tours! We had a blast! After this we were able to check in and Monica and Rock were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The inn is very comfortable. It is clean and feels like being at home! Our room was beautiful and very cozy. The Inn also has many menus to local restaurants and area attractions. I loved that they had the next days breakfast menu posted so I knew what to look forward too! Breakfast was delicious! The best part of the inn! The food was fresh and healthy. A great way to start your day. Overall, I would recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who wants a cozy, comfortable stay. Monica and Rock were wonderful and make you feel right at home. We had a great experience and enjoyed our stay at the White Cedar Inn.


Our Stay at White Cedar Inn

5 on March 04, 2010

We recently stayed at the White Cedar Inn and it far exceeded our expectations. The room we stayed in had a fireplace, which allowed us to sit and relax after a long day of shopping. Could not have been more relaxing. The best part, though, was the breakfast and owners. You can't go wrong with the price, location and dedication of the owners. We'll definitely stay there each time we visit Freeport.


A WEEKEND AT THE WHITE CEDAR INN

4.0 on February 27, 2010

We recently spent two evenings at the White Cedar Inn. We must say that it was a great decision. The inn is beautiful. It was like being at home. The common living room was very warm and each room was special. Breakfast was well done and delicious. Monica and Rock are the perfect hosts. Go for a memory that lasts. We still talk about our mini trip and that was three weeks ago. Thanks for a wonderful memory.


A Pleasant Surprise

4.8 on February 16, 2010

I couldn't have had a better experience touring Freeport, Maine, thanks to the proprietors of the White Cedar Inn. Their attention to detail from decor to dining made our impromptu getaway a wondeful experience! Excellent value and great location for walking throughout Freeport!
