About

A relaxing vacation awaits at the Atlantic Birches Inn. The Inn is comprised of two homes, the 1903 Victorian shingle style Main House, and the 1920's bungalow called the Guest House. Each building houses five comfortable and uniquely decorated smoke-free guest rooms all with private baths and air-conditioning, 32" Led Color TV's, free Wifi, large living rooms, and casual dining areas for our homemade Continental breakfasts. Rooms vary from a cozy retreat for two, up to a two bedroom suite for a family of five. The Inn reflects the peace and tranquility of yester-year, with a casual elegance. Guests enjoy the opportunity to linger over breakfast on our front porches shaded by Birch Trees, or our Gazebo surrounded by perienal gardens or just bask in the sun by the outdoor heated pool. We are located in the center of town in the Downtown Historic District a minutes walk from the Inn takes you to Old Orchard Beach's lively downtown, and Maine's largest white sand beach.

Quiet getaway

5 on January 09, 2014

Me and my boyfriend went to stay on our one year anniversary, and it was a nice quiet getaway. The service was great from everyone, and they were all very nice. They were also very helpful when we asked them for information on places to go and eat. They provided a nice room with peace and quiet, and they came to clean up without us even knowing they were there. The breakfast they served there was fantastic, and they gave a lot of different choices. We would like to go back again sometime soon.


Great Way To Spend The Holidays

5 on January 01, 2014

Have been staying at the atlantic BIrches Inn for the last 6 years. Grew up in Old Orchard Beach and Saco and come backwith my family to see family during the Holiday season. The Inn is always decorated inside and out and makes us feel like we are home. Ray or Heidi is always there to help us with suggestions. We like the idea thatthey do not hoover over us and let us have family over to visit us and hang out. We will be back next year with more family and friends


Off Season Experience

2.6 on October 29, 2013

Location was great, easy walking to main street and beach. Property has lovely setting and nice house/cottage. Room was nice but crowded with decorating clutter -no room to open suitcases - no place to set things - low lighting, couldn't read in the room! Bed was comfortable - but needs new linens. Bathroom was not adequately cleaned and towels need replacing. Innkeepers were nice and helpful. Breakfast experience was okay.


Review of Atlantic Birches

3.2 on October 23, 2013

The innkeepers were very helpful, though not around all that much. Nothing hot for breakfast which was a little unfortunate, but fine. Rooms were great. Don't seem to spend much on things like towels, toilet paper, etc., but for the price you pay perhaps that is what should be expected.


A nice place but missing the Wow

2.6 on October 18, 2013

We stayed 3 nights at Atlantic Birches. The house is full of charm with a typical New England decoration. Hosts are lovely. We stayed in Abbots suite. The beds were not comfortable and we ended up all with back pains. The breakfast offers bread, muffins and fruits. I was missing eggs, ham or cheese as being Gluten intolerant I could only eat fruits.
