In the heart of Freeport, this charming B&B has all of the comforts of home. The inn has been lovingly restored to preserve the charm of its 1890s history: the hardwood floors are original, the woodwork has been restored to its original form, yet all of the amenities and updates the traveler might want are available. Each room has a private thermostat for heat and individual air conditioning. All rooms have TVs with cable and a built-in DVD player. Enjoy access any time to the DVD library in the common area. Rooms also feature hand-made soaps, shampoo/conditioner, hair dryers, bottled water, and fine towels and linens. The breakfasts are all made from scratch and we use as many local ingredients as possible. Start with locally roasted coffee, our own blend, fresh morning pastry, homemade granola, yogurt and fruit. From there, choose from breakfast options, always featuring a sweet and a savory option. We also accommodate dietary restrictions (vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free). Guests come back time and again, telling us the friendly manner, service, and us as hosts make this a comfortable place to be, just like home! We think that is the best compliment there is. There is so much to do in and around Freeport and it is important to us that our guests make the most of their time while here. We will gladly make suggestions of things to do and see based on your interests, make reservations, etc. It is our pleasure!

My wife and I escaped to Freeport before baby #2 arrives and we had a wonderful time. From the warm greeting, to the wonderful breakfasts and the exceptional service of recommending and making our dinner reservations, I'd highly recommend the James Place Inn. I'm sure we'll be back!

I have been staying at the James Place Inn at least once a year for the past five years. It is the best place to stay in the area. Located just a block from the main shopping area of Freeport, Inn is on a quiet side street. As such, you can easily walk to all the shops and restaurants in down town Freeport, but still get a great night's sleep. It has easy access to I-295 and is only about 20 minutes from downtown Portland. The house is beautiful, with Adirondack chairs, a hammock and a nice deck for just relaxing outside and reading a book. Rooms are tastefully decorated, have great beds, and many have whirlpool style tubs. My favorite rooms are the Rose room (if traveling alone) and the Green room (if traveling with someone special). I frequently stay here after long bike rides (such as this past weekend's Trek Across Maine) and the Rose room downright has the best soaking tub I have ever been in. The green room's bright airy feel and view of the yard are its highlights. Speaking of breakfast the food is amazing. For starters every day there is yogurt, homemade granola, and cut fruit. In addition, there is a new baked item every day. My personal favorite are the raspberry scones. Then there is a selection of hot foods every day. This usually includes a frittata or two, pancakes or waffles, quiche, and some kind of breakfast meat. Occasionally, you will also be treated to Robyn's homemade baked beans. When you return from your day out fresh baked cookies and tea will be waiting for you in the sun room. You will not be hungry. But the best part of the James Place Inn are the family who run it. Robyn, Tori and their daughter Elyse, are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They are very personable and really try to make sure everyone of their guests has the best experience possible. They are very knowledgeable on things to do in the area. I always look forward to my trips north and am already thinking of my next trip to the James Place Inn.

Enjoyed an off season stay for our baby-moon. Robin, the Inn keeper, is fantastically hospitable and an amazing cook. We really enjoyed our room and the cozy fire. Walkability to town was so close that we even ventured out on a very cold and blustery day. Definitely plan to return as soon as we can get another getaway!

After a nearly 5 hr drive in a snowstorm, we were warmly welcomed by Robin - who guided us painlessly through the check-in and brought us to our choice for the next 2 nights: the Pine Room! A good sized guest room, queen bed and rollaway for our grown daughter, and the much appreciated fireplace (stocked and match ready as advertised!) The bathroom was a bit tight - something that is being addressed right now, as we were told of the renovations being made upon our departure! Breakfasts were awesome! Over the 2 days we were treated to homemade cookies (available upon arrival and throughout the day), an incredible coffee blend (specific to the Inn itself, you HAVE to buy some to bring home - so delicious); baked goods of scones and a coffee cake to knock your socks off (I need that recipe); a quiche filled with leeks and bacon; frittatas....cheese and meats and veggies (yum)....blueberry pancakes, and the BEST homemade cinnamon french toast ever!! there was homemade granola, yogurt and fresh fruit!! sorry if i missed anything - it was all delicious! Torey and Robin could not do enough to make our stay the BEST - our daughter was a bit under the weather the first night- they were more than gracious in helping us through that and we cannot thank them enough!! Definitely a "2 thumbs up".... we will be returning! Thank you so much for an outstanding weekend....Gene,Sharon and Sarah Leahy - Cape Cod MA

We recently returned from a trip to New England and the James Place Inn was an amazing place to stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this charming, clean and very well-kept bed and breakfast. The hosts, Robin and Tori, were outstanding. They were helpful, friendly, thoughtful and cooked a delicious, full breakfast. We loved Tori's homemade granola too! We lodged in the yellow room and found it to be delightful - we especially loved the two-person jacuzzi! Would definitely recommend this B&B!

Tori et Robin sont des hôtes exceptionnels. Attentionnés et sympathiques, nous nous sommes sentis chez nous dès notre arrivée. Ce B&B est bien situé si vous désirez explorer plus au nord vers Brunswick ou Bath ou faire des escapades vers Portland et prendre un bateau en excursion. Ce n'est qu'à 15 ou 20 minutes de route. Freeport en soi n'est qu'un endroit pour magasiner. Mais à chaque retour et à chaque déjeuner (5 jours) chez James Place Inn, c'était le bonheur. Les meilleurs déjeuners du Maine. En fait, presque un brunch. Robin est un chef hors pair. Tout est cuisiné maison et c'est un pur délice presque avec une touche du Québec. Home sweet home, sans le flafla décor empoussiéré typique de beaucoup de B&B du Maine. Nous y retournerons sans hésiter.

My husband and I have been back from our stay at the James Place Inn for four days and I think we are both still full from Robin's amazing breakfasts. Tori and Robin welcomed us into their bed and breakfast, creating breakfast from the freshest and finest ingredients, designing a relaxing room, and offering suggestions on places to visit while in the Freeport area. Even before we arrived at the James Place Inn, Tori was communicating with my husband, offering suggestions on how to make our anniversary weekend one to remember. My husband is still raving about Robin's talents in the kitchen and the special blend coffee that we enjoyed each morning. Tori and Robin made my husband and I feel as though we were the only couple staying with them for the weekend, when in actuality, they were filled to capacity. If you are in search for the perfect B&B in the Freeport area, let this be the last review you read. You will not find a better place to stay!

I am woefully late in writing this review, but had to let everyone know this B&B is the BEST!!! My husband and I stayed here last summer. We had booked for a few days and loved it so much that we returned after driving north over night. Tori and Robin are the ultimate hosts. My husband was dealing with the aftermath of a brain injury and stroke and they were so kind! Their breakfasts are FABULOUS, but when he was cantankerous they fixed him a simple breakfast of his choice. Their sweet daughter Elyse made him her special scrambled eggs, which he loved. Robin helped me map out driving trips that hubby would enjoy and encouraged me to take advantage of the great adventure tours at LL Bean while hubby rested at the inn. I can't say enough about this wonderful experience. Spotless, comfortable rooms; unbelievable , delicious breakfasts; kind, wonderfully helpful, knowledgeable hosts...SIMPLY THE BEST!

We both used to do a great deal of travel for business, so we know what our guests are looking for in a property; the attention is in the details. It is our pleasure to pamper and care for our guests and enjoy the slower pace of our lives as innkeepers. We are also able to spend more time with our daughter! The best part about our job as innkeepers is all of the amazing and interesting people we meet, from all over the world. We look forward to meeting you as well.
