We have been staying at The PineCrest B&B ever since our daughter started attending USM in 2005. The Inn was so close to campus, it was the perfect place to stay whenever we visited her. It didn't take long to feel completely at home there. The family is very warm and welcoming, the rooms exceptionally clean, well-equipped, and comfy. Of course, we tried every room, but we always go back to The Stoningham. Having a sitting room, makes it perfect to chat with friends, other guests and the Mattingly family! We are always impressed with the food, and enjoy Matt's great wine selections. Since we love music, the frequent live performances during dinner are a real plus. Our daughter graduated from USM back in 2009, but we still love going to PineCrest to relax, dine, and visit the family. It is, without a doubt our favorite B&B.

We stayed at Pinecrest for a weekend after exhaustively searching online for a good B&B in the area, at a good value. I think we hit the mark with Pinecrest. We stayed in the Covington, which had a huge king size bed, as well as a futon that turns into a twin size. The king was good enough for our family (two adults, a toddler, and an infant). The room had a suite setup, with a private bathroom. Decor was very nice across the board. Views from the B&B are nothing particularly special, as Pinecrest sits on a normal street. However, that's still lovely if you visit when there is snow on the ground. There are a small handful of common rooms, well-appointed with comfortable seating, books, games, and even musical instruments. We did not get the chance to enjoy the attached restaurant for dinner, although the menu looked fantastic. Breakfast was home-cooked, and was a special treat each morning, although the window is quite brief. The room was always cleaned during the day, quickly and efficiently, while we were gone. Service was excellent. Matt and Amy were very friendly. I have a special needs son, and even without disclosing that, they offered - unprompted - to make him breakfast in a take-out box so that I could feed him upstairs in the room, in case he wasn't ready to eat downstairs near strangers. The price for the stay was excellent, rivaling other B&B in the area. I would definitely pay the rates at Pinecrest again before I checked in to a hotel. I would also definitely consider Pinecrest my number one option next time I'm in the area (unless we want something with a water view). Highly recommended.

No one does a B&B like the northeast. To me, service and cleanliness are a given - I'm less impressed by them as I believe they are the bare minimum. Of course, they did these well. This particular B&B focuses on the things I think really set one apart from the pack: excellent food, updated decor, and service that goes above and beyond. The B&B doesn't just offer cereal for breakfast. They offer you a real, home cooked, delicious meal. We had pancakes one day and eggs the next. The coffee was great. The service was friendly and warm. Speaking of service, through-out the facilities they go above and beyond. For example, not only was there a fireplace in the room, but it already had a complimentary duraflame log, and the bathroom amenities included toothpaste. I travel at least once a month for either work or pleasure, and admittedly have become somewhat spoiled. But this B&B exceeded my expectations. If I'm ever in the area again, I will certainly stay here again.

After seeing the Inn on Chronicle I took a chance and booked a weekend for my husband's sixtieth birthday. We were so impressed! Amy greeted us and was so warm and down to earth. The room (the Amherst) was absolutely charming. It was so very comfortable and peaceful - we really felt relaxed. We had dinner the first night at the Inn and it was fantastic from the wine to the main course and dessert. We were accompanied by a jazz musician - so classy. The breakfast we had the next morning was to die for! The Inn is a short ride to Portland and close by to the highway. We really had a wonderful experience and highly recommend the PineCrest Inn.

We just got back from our stay at PineCrest B&B and it was a highlight of our East coast vacation. The room was beautifully appointed with high end linens. (Amy was so good to get me another pillow!) The turndown service with chocolates on the pillow for our second night was what you would expect at any luxury hotel. The breakfasts cooked by Matt were delicious! He could easily fill in for the evening chefs at their 91 South restaurant. The evening meal we had at their attached restaurant, 91 South, was very good but you need to make early reservations to be assured the whole menu is still available. Several items were sold out and the much anticipated dessert we wanted were no longer available at the 7:30 seating. They had a great jazz trio entertaining the small dining room. I would highly recommend PineCrest B&B for a great getaway!
