This was my first visit to Nellie's and I found it quaint and of fine quality. The staff is friendly and professional. They meet all needs! The breakfast's were delicious. We enjoyed the pool area and loved that we had chairs to take to the beach!! Thank you ~ keep up the great work! L. Baril, Dracut, MA

A Nice Break

My husband and I were to attend a memorial service in Hollis, NH and thought we'd bookend that visit with stays at the Nellie Littlefield in Ogunquit. We arrived to a very gracious welcome, a nice room with a cozy gas fireplace, and all kinds of advice about where to eat. On our return stay we met one of the owners who was very charming and our host for breakfast the next morning. The breakfasts were both outstanding. Highly recommend a stay here.

Happy Birthday

Very pleasant B&B close to everything.

We LOVE the Nellie

5 on May 18, 2015

My husband I have stayed at the Nellie in the past and each time it is a fun and great experience. The weekend of May 1st, was a girls weekend at the Nellie. I love how you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. The beach and Marginal Way are in walking distance. We had a blast enjoying cocktails on the balcony before dinner. We even got in some massages in the Nellie spa room then jumped into the hot-tub after. Only downside was not booking 3 nights and having to leave.

Breakfast did not match the quality 5 star level of this lovely B&B.

Best Bed and Breakfast we ever stayed in!

5 on April 26, 2015

We had a wonderful 2-night stay at this B and B this week. It was perfect and totally relaxing. Location is great...walk to everything. Comfort, spa facilities and food were outstanding. We look forward to coming again and recommend without hesitation!

We have been at the Nellie several times now and are never disappointed. We enjoy our stay and look forward to our next visit.

Welcome retreat

On our third stay here, the first time off-season, the service was as usual excellent.

Top notch

4.4 on December 11, 2014

A wonderful little place nestled in downtown Ogunquit. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is always friendly, courteous, professional and extremely helpful. The location is great if you plan to stay downtown as it literally takes only seconds to get out you door and onto Main Street. If you don't love this place then you seriously need to go see a therapist because nothing will ever please you.

Veteran's Day getaway

5 on November 26, 2014

A lovely inn. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The bed was great, had the best rest in a long time. The breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. The location is close to everything. Restaurants are close by and it is a short walk to both the beach and the Marginal Way walk. The owner went out of his way to make us feel vey welcomed.

A great place for a fun weekend.

5 on November 10, 2014

We stayed here for a fall weekend and enjoyed it very much. We had a great room and the location is convenient to everything. Tricia, the young woman in charge, did an excellent job running the inn and even cooked breakfast. She was very friendly.

Best place in Ogunquit

5 on November 06, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have already booked it again. Tricia the innkeeper is so accommodating. The rooms are well appointed and the access to everything is ideal. Can't wait to go back!

Wonderful place to stay. Easy walking distance to beach, shops, Playhouse, and Marginal Way. Have stayed here before and plan on staying many more times. Lovely place.

A Jewel in the Heart of Town

5 on October 06, 2014

Comfy, romantic, and so pretty. Wonderful breakfasts, warm hospitality.

Our September stay

5 on October 04, 2014

Nellie Littlefield is like being at home, only waited on. We felt comfortable in going between the dining room where continuous free coffee is given, the comfortable living room and the many porches. We have been going to Nellie Littlefield for at least 10 years and will continue to do so.

Real maple syrup

4.6 on October 02, 2014

Stayed in the turret room. It was renovated modern yet quaint. The wood stove in the room was an added touch! Breakfast was very good and included real maple syrup! Bedding was suburb and the massages were professional and very good. Not a typical vacation "oil rub". We had a great time and would go back.

Excellent Stay

4.4 on October 01, 2014

The inn is located in the best location in the center of town and had a pool/hot tub as a bonus. We would definitely go back!

Nellie Littlefield's

5 on September 30, 2014

Great location, great rooms and great staff, always makes our stay there a memorable one

Perfect place for a sanity break.

5 on September 26, 2014

After a crowded ten day retreat in Bar Harbor, I needed a quite place for a couple of days. I could not have asked for a better location or room to relax! The staff was perfect, breakfast is outstanding, and that private deck is paradise. The location is ideal, with an easy walk to the beach, a great market, and great restaurants. If you have a car, many other small towns and beaches await. I'll definitely plan to return to Ogunquit and the Nellie Littlefield Inn as often as I possibly can!

Wonderful, Wonderful Time

4.8 on September 25, 2014

We had a wonderful time at the Nellie this past week. This is the 3rd time we have stayed here, and will continue to come back. We love the Inn, cleanliness and staff. The location is ideal, for both shops and restaurants in Ogunquit, and the Marginal Way to Perkin's Cove. Chet & Jean Cook

Fabulous stay at the Nellie

4.8 on September 17, 2014

We just got back from a romantic little stay at the Nellie and it coudnt have been better. It was quick - just one night - so we tried to fit in all that we could. We loved the location being in the heart of everything. The night we were there it poured rain, but we had so many options still, for dinner, as we could walk to many great places. We got a massage in the afternoon, but before it, we went in the hot tub. Keep in mind our stay was in mid Sept and the air was a bit chilly, but the hot tub was incredible. And just what made a relaxing massage even better. The room was great, clean and perfect sized. We even had a balcony, which we sat out on in the morning sunshine. When we went downstairs to breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised at how big the buffet was. So many delicious choices. Blueberry juice was a huge hit and the raspberry scone with white chocolate, hasn't left my mind yet. And Tricia the Inn Keeper was extremely accommodating and helpful with out being overly eager. She really was great. We loved it here and will most certainly return for another visit!

everything was perfect

5 on September 12, 2014

Such a great place to stay from the location to the attention to detail that the Littlefield house as to offer. We stayed there five years ago and again this summer, over the years there were some improvements made that make this Inn one of the best places in Maine.

Best location in Ogunquit

4.2 on August 27, 2014

Close to beach, marginal way,shops. This Inn is very comfortable, quiet. The public areas and the rooms are clean (above expectations). Easy access to a parking behind the Inn. The breakfast is great with cold and hot food. The afternoon cookies are very good too. We had a very nice weekend and I would recommend this place anytime.

Summer 2014 Ogunquit Vacation

4.0 on July 21, 2014

This was an excellent choice for our summer vacation - as we have stayed in the Gazebo, a sister property of The Nellie Littlefield, we knew that our accommodations would be wonderful. Our room, a king suite on the 3rd floor was a wonderful choice with a private balcony and a separate living room area with a sofa, chair, mini fridge, coffee maker and wine fridge. The private balcony was one of my favorite places to sit with my morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine. Trisha is a superb choice as innkeeper with a warm and friendly personality making you feel right at home and anxious to please. They even had carts, beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers available for your trip to the beach!

Best location in Ogunquit!

4.6 on July 08, 2014

While the food was so-so, everything else about Nellie Littlefield was wonderful. The location was probably the best thing about it. We couldn't have been in a better spot. The ladies that work there were very helpful as well.

It doesn't get any better than Nellie Littlefield....gorgeous...friendly...and a short walk to the beach.


5 on June 26, 2014

Beautiful refurbished Victorian mansion. Cozy and welcoming. Delightful Innkeeper, who makes wonderful, tasty breakfasts each day, and surprised us with fresh baked cookies and iced tea in the afternoon. Easy walk to the beach, restaurants, and stores.

The massage and dinner package are worth the price. What better way to spend time with your spouse? Nice relaxing time.

The Nellie

5 on April 13, 2014

Our stay was fantastic. Inn Keepers are fantastic. Stayed on the top floor in the suite and it was well worth it. View is spectacular. Breakfast is best around. Bed is super comfy and bathroom has been recently updated and is very nice. Over all outstanding.

Charming Ogunquit Inn

5 on December 11, 2013

We spent our second stay at the Nellie Littlefield Inn & Spa over Thanksgiving week (the first being for a few days during our honeymoon last year). The week could not have been any more wonderful or relaxing. Each day started with a DELICIOUS breakfast homemade by Tricia (the innkeeper) that honestly probably could've kept us full until dinner. Typically it was fruit/yogurt/cereal served along side something hot. A favorite being cinnamon french toast! Coffee was available all day- which was a great bonus. As far as things to in the area-Tricia had great recommendations for things to do/eat in the area or nearby. She was incredibly knowledgeable of Maine in general and pointed us in the right direction of anything we were looking for! The rooms are extremely cozy with their own fireplaces and luxurious bed linens. Even their towels are also crazy comfortable and soft. Some of the rooms definitely are smaller but still all have the same basic amenities such as a kuerig, mini fridge (with freezer), TV & DVD player. So if space is something you're worried about I'd ask which rooms might be better, but even the smaller ones are just as comfortable. Every detail of the inn lends to it's inviting and cozy atmosphere, including the cute sitting area on the main level. If you're staying in, there's also a great dvd library to borrow from. It seemed like they had a little bit of everything to choose from. Mostly, though, what made this trip (and the one before it) exceptional is that Tricia is honestly the best innkeeper I've ever encountered. She is so warm & friendly & accommodating & just easy to have a nice conversation with. She's definitely big part of the reason we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on our trips to Maine other than the lovely Nellie Littlefield Inn & Spa.

Our little home away from home

5 on August 06, 2013

We visited the Nellie for the second time. We will continue to visit the Nellie for many more years to come. People have asked why we don't buy a place in Ogunquit. Our response is always the same. Why would we when we can stay at such an enjoyable Inn. I could not be happier with the Inn and all of the staff and owners. Where else can you go and be greeted with a hug form the manager and the owners of the Inn. Scott, Bruce, Peter and Trish are the most amazing people and treat us as if we are family.

Fantastic Location and Service!

4.8 on July 04, 2013

Thanks for a great anniversary weekend! Trisha was awesome! I look forward to coming again. The Queen size room was quaint with a nice balcony to sit with a book. It doesn't have a great view but gave a moment to relax quietly. We enjoyed the spa service with an hour long rubdown. The hot tub was relaxing and available late at night. The number one reason we enjoyed besides great service and attention from Trisha the inn keeper was the LOCATION! Right in the heart of the town with fantastic shops and restaurants nearby. Plus great martinis too! Thanks for the suggestion to go to ARROW. Pricey but a memorable evening!

A lovely stay at nellie littlefields

4.4 on June 28, 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay, we have stayed in the past and we were thrilled to be back at the inn. We plan to be back again this fall.

an exceptional inn

5 on June 13, 2013

My husband and I traveled from Pennsylvania with two other couples for a long weekend in Ogunquit, and while we enjoyed the town immensely, one of the best parts of the entire weekend was staying at the Nellie Littlefield Inn. It truly felt like our home for the weekend, and what a home! The rooms were beautifully restored (I recommend the turret room on the third floor, very special indeed!) and impeccably maintained. The common areas of the Inn were spacious and very comfortable, and the breakfasts were wonderful! Sitting on the second floor porch, rocking away, and watching the world go by was just delightful. And Tricia was the consummate hostess, making us feel like we were the most important guests the Inn had ever had! I cannot recommend this Inn any more highly, and I cannot wait to return.

A Very Special Inn

5 on June 11, 2013

Ira & Reggie, Plainsboro NJ We will return to the Nellie in 2014 for the third year in a row! Over the decades we have vacationed in numerous inns across the country and the Nellie is our very favorite. Tricia is one of those rare innkeepers that knows just how much or how little attention each of her guest prefers. She runs the flawlessly. The Nellie, a gracious and newly renovated Victorian located in the heart of the village provides convenient access to everything and still manages to envelope the guests with a serene environment that includes modern amenities such as an exercise room, hot tubs, steam room, and sauna. Breakfast balances the various preferences of guests (healthy and/or decadent). The hospitality is warm and thoughtful. Tricia is a treasure.

Fantastic Inn

5 on March 18, 2013

I've stayed at this inn twice, and both times it was a superb experience. The inn itself is just lovely. Each room is tastefully decorated and wonderfully comfortable. I especially love the gas fireplaces that heat the rooms as they provide extra ambiance to an already welcoming environment! The innkeeper, Tricia, is so warm and friendly she honestly makes the experience of staying at the Nellie Littlefield Inn. The breakfasts she makes are delicious as well! Although I haven't used it yet, the inn has a great little gym/spa downstairs, complete with massage tables (call ahead to arrange) and steam rooms. The hot tub outside is heaven on earth in the winter (the only time of the year I've stayed)... and the fact that the inn has stemless plastic wine glasses for use out in the hot tub area is just genius. As if all of the above weren't enough - the location of the inn is unbeatable. Right in downtown Ogunquit, walkable to everything. I can't say enough good things about this place and I'm already looking forward to returning!

Wonderful B&B

5 on January 21, 2013

Just an awesome place to stay. The Innkeeper was just wonderful and accommadating. Nice renovation work with attention to detail results in a charming stay. Perfect location to town and the ocean. Highly recommended.

Magical Getaway

5 on January 20, 2013

A charming, romantic B & B, utterly cozy yet also newly renovated and quite modernized. Superb breakfasts, plus easy access to everything in Ogunquit. Extremely comfortable bed, too!

weekend getaway

4.4 on January 18, 2013

We are seasonal residents of the Ogunquit area and usually visit in the off season 2 or 3 times a year. We decided to stay at the Nellie Littlefield Inn after walking and driving past it numerous time during the summer. It is located on Shore Road which is a great location. The innkeeper, Trisha, was fantastic. She greeted us with a friendly smile,checked us in, and showed us to our room where she explained how to use the gas fireplace and other amenities. There are some nice touches in the rooms, a kuerig coffee maker, a refrigerator and DVD player with numerous CD's to chose from. The Inn has an outside hot tub, a sauna and steam room, along with and exercise room and spa available. Trisha was very warm and pleasant and talked with us for a while. She made a great breakfast which included some delicious homemade blueberry scones! There is a nice sitting area with a fireplace and comfortable chairs where you could sit and read or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. This was a great weekend getaway and I'm sure we will be back for another stay soon.

Another great weekend in Ogunquit

5 on December 07, 2012

My wife and I have been celebrating our anniversary in Ogunquit for the past 10+ years. Our anniversary happens to fall right around Ogunquit's Christmas by the Sea, so it makes for an entertaining weekend. This year we decided to stay at the Nellie Littlefield Inn & Spa, and what a great decision we made. Let's start with the Inn Keeper/Inn Manager, Tricia. Tricia obviously takes a lot of pride in her work and strives to make her customers feel very welcome and comfortable. Tricia was very attentive to my wife and I, and all of the other guests as far as we could tell. She even brought my wife a nice hot cup of tea while my wife was enjoying the outdoor hot tub. That brings me to the Inn itself. Think small town quaint from the outside, but very modern, clean and ellegant on the inside. The Inn provides beautiful and very comfortable rooms, a strong guest wifi (great for my laptop and both of our iPhones), the hot tub, a steam room, a sauna, and a nicely equipped gym (I LOVED having the gym!). I'm sure there's more amenities that I'm forgetting to list, but these are the ones I used during our stay. And of course there was breakfast - one word, YUM, and GREAT coffee too. We will definitely be heading back! -Mike and Kim Michel Dracut, MA


4.8 on November 30, 2012

This was our first visit to the Inn and we couldn't say enough about it. The rooms were absolutely beautiful and immaculate. The staff was exceptional. We were very pleased to meet the owners who we found to be personable, caring and fun. We can't wait to go back and we recommend the Nellie Littlefield Inn and Spa very highly.

Great Escape!

5 on November 25, 2012

We spent 2 nights in a lovely bedroom with a balcony. The distant ocean view was close enough to hear at night. The inn was reasonable for for an off season get away. We had a nice breakfast each morning and appreciated the coffee and tea available lateas we are night owls.You cant beat the location as it is right in the middle of all shopping and beaches. We would highly reccomend this inn and plan to return next year.

A great stay

4.8 on November 04, 2012

Fall is great in Ogunquit. Much quieter than summertime. We stayed two nights and had a great time. Tricia is a local so can give some great tips; we were looking for a place to get a sanwhich that we could take to the beach and she knew just what to suggest. The room was very nice. Breakfast was wonderful along with a nice variety of coffees. Cookies in the afternoon-----SUPER touch. We were hoping to hop in the hot tub that Peter tells us will be open all winter. . .but didn't make it in this time; maybe next~! Booked a couples massage and Amber and Scott were great. Looking forward to another get away. . .

Great get away location!!!

4.8 on October 26, 2012

My husband and I have always wanted to stay at the Nellie Littlefield Inn and finally got a chance to do so this past weekend. We had wonderful stay! Everything was great! Tricia is a perfect hostess! The Inn is beautiful and we especially loved sitting on our private deck! Everything we needed was there, the gym, sauna, steam, hot tubs and breakfast. It is a great location right in the middle of everything! We can't wait to go back! We highly recommend it!

Simply one of the Best B & B in Oqunquit ME

5 on October 22, 2012

The is a gem B & B. The inn keepers are friendly and love to talk with you. My wife and I have been coming to the Nellie for 14 years and the improvements made this year are short of terrific. All rooms have new bedding, wood floors, gas fireplaces and window treatments all done so warmly and beautifully. I would urge anyone who likes to travel to Ogunquit to stay at the Nellie Littlefield Inn and Spa.

Nellie Littlefield Inn

5 on October 21, 2012

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like family. Tricia insisted on carrying our luggage up to our second floor suite. We have stayed at many B&B's and no one else ever offered to help with our luggage. Tricia was also friendly, accomodating and informative, in addition to having the culinary talents to produce a delicious, varied buffet breakfast each morning. Our suite, the King 3, was spacious, comfortable and clean. The fitness center was perfect for a workout after a brisk 2 mile walk on the Marginal Way. The location, in the heart of Ogunquit, was perfect for our activities and the parking was spacious, easy in and out. Very pleasant memories until we return next year. Myles & Micki, Phila., PA

Nellie Littlefield Inn

5 on October 10, 2012

One of the two finest B&Bs my wife and I have ever used, and this includes a number in Europe. Our other "finest" B&B is owned by the same proprietors., who make every effort to cater to their guests' every whim. Extremely friednly and luxurious environment optimnally located in the center of Ogunquit. You couldn't ask for more.

Can't wait to return to the Nellie Littlefield Inn!

5 on September 24, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Nellie Littlefield Inn 8/14-8/16/12 to celebrate my birthday. We had such a wonderful time! This really is a wonderful Inn with welcoming staff in a perfect location in a fantastic town. Too many superlatives? Absolutely not! We stayed in King Room 1. The room size was fine and the amenities and bed were, well...wonderful! The bed was huge and SO comfortable. The fluffy robes, soft bedding, luxuriant soaps, and comfortable shower all added to the pampering feel of the Inn. Nick expertly showed us around on the first day and as other people wrote, I was impressed that we could borrow items for the beach, which is about a 5 minute walk. Tricia welcomed us the next morning and prepared a bountiful and delicious breakfast. There were healthy options like fruit and yogurt, and more decadent options like home made scones and made to order Belgian waffles with warm fruit toppings. The Maine blueberry juice was really good too! Tricia is amazingly warm and is very knowledgeable of the area. She remembered everything about us, including my birthday and where we had visited during our stay. We also met Scott, one of the owners. He was equally gracious and remembered us when we passed him on the street. The owners obviously take great pride in the Inn and Ogunquit and great attention is paid to detail. The easily accessible wine and juice glasses are embossed with the INN's logo, there are books to peruse regarding Ogunquit and the Playhouse, Keurig coffee maker in the rooms, and even a remote controlled gas fireplace! The fitness area, massage room, and Jacuzzi all looked inviting and well maintained but we did not take advantage of them. We did make time after the busy day to relax on the porch in the evening and watch the passersby. The Nellie Littlefield Inn is an incredibly welcoming and beautiful home away from home and we will definitely return.

Ogounquit weekend

5 on September 04, 2012

We had a great wekend in Ogunquit and it was all the better for staying at the Nellie Littlefiled. It's definitely a premier property in town. We'll definitely be returning.

A lovely gem in town

4.0 on August 13, 2012

I would highly recommend The Nellie Littlefield Inn and Spa if you're looking for a great, central location in Ogunquit. The staff is incredibly warm, welcoming and accommodating. Tricia made us feel like we were visiting her home. We spent two nights in a king bed room. The bed was wonderful. The rooms are very small and the bathroom was extremely small, but both are well appointed. We loved the all day coffee/tea bar, the breakfast buffet and freshly baked cookies in the afternoon - all the more enjoyable when we were relaxing on the lovely side porch.

So Glad I Found the Nellie Littlefield

4.4 on August 06, 2012

My partner and I stayed at the Nellie Littlefield the first week of August and loved it! It's in a perfect location, right in town and close to all the shops and restaurants. It's about a mile from the beach, but the town trolley stops a few feet away and takes you anywhere you need to go. The Inn itself is beautifully decorated. Despite being over 100 years old, everything is newly decorated, clean and very tasteful. The best part of the property is its wonderful staff. They are attentive, friendly, informative and generally just nice people. Someone is on site from about 7am until 10pm so you're always taken care of. We loved the tea and coffee that's brewed throughout the day and cookies in the afternoon. Breakfast was also a real treat; homemade waffles, Maine blueberry pancakes and fresh fruit. I had only to small criticisms - one, the Queen room we stayed in was very small...definitely smaller than it looked in the pictures. After a week together, my partner and I were bumping into each other. I would also suggest to the owners that the breakfast meats be cooked on the stove and a little longer. Besides those things, it was a wonderful stay and we are DEFINITELY planning a return trip in the fall and next summer. P.S. The double jacuzzi was to die for!
