My wife and I recently escaped to The Puffin' Inn for a quick getaway prior to the birth of our second child. The owners, (Tim and Michele) are excellent innkeepers. Upon arrival, Tim made us feel incredibly welcome. He spent a good 10-minutes orienting us to the area via a simple tourism map. He recommended some area restaurants (and showed the location on the map), gave us some "local" tips on where to find free long term parking, and even went so far as to tell us which places we might want to avoid. The breakfasts that he cooked for us each morning were all different and equally delicious. You are given a choice of a savory or sweet option and, on top of the main breakfast dish, every morning they put out coffee, tea, a freshly baked pastry of some kind or another, and serve fresh fruit w/ yogurt and granola. The room was very comfortable, clean, and appeared exactly as advertised in the picture on their website. Property was well maintained and there was a large variety of areas to sit within their garden to simply relax and take in some of the fresh Maine air. If you're planning to go to one of the beautiful white sand beaches in the area, the Puffin Inn will provide beach chairs, towels, caddies, etc. as well. All you need to do is ask. Bottom line: The Puffin Inn was a fantastic B&B that provided us some much needed solace and relaxation. Tim and Michele are the real deal! They are down to earth, welcoming and totally low stress. If you're planning on traveling to Ogunquit, I'd HIGHLY encourage you to consider laying your head at the Puffin Inn every evening. We surely will be visiting again as soon as we can!

Seven of us booked four rooms for a fall weekend. Tim and Michele are perfect innkeepers, warm, friendly, solicitous, cheerful, and accommodating. Delicious homemade breakfasts: egg roulade, quiche, homemade breads and muffins We highly recommend the Puffin Inn. It is a gem and the perfect setting for a weekend getaway.

It's been a while since we last visited Ogunquit, but out recent 4-day stay was a perfect get-away. We stay at B&Bs regularly for pleasure travel, and our experience at the Puffin Inn was outstanding in every respect. Our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing. Tim and Michele were wonderful hosts, treating us like special friends. The Puffin Inn is a great location for guests who like to walk to the beach or to the village center. Amenities such as the beach carts and umbrellas, were much appreciated. I hope we will be able to return next year!

What a perfect place to stay for a much needed long weekend away from home! We cannot thank Michele and Tim enough for their sincere kindness and hospitality. Our room was relaxing and private. It was over the carriage house and we had two great chairs on our own private deck. I would highly recommend Room 10 or 11, although from what I saw upon entering the inn, the bedroom on the first floor was just as beautiful as the one we stayed in. Breakfast was absolutely delicious!! Michele made something different each morning and one was better than the next. There is also a small gift shop tastefully filled….I bought several items and love all of them.

The Puffin Inn is a wonderful escape. I stayed there this past year and I am trying to figure out when I can return this summer. My guest room was beautifully decorated and had so many nice windows to bring in the sun. The bathroom was sparkling clean, the room was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable allowing me a relaxing night's sleep. The inn is just lovely, welcoming and comfortable and I could walk to restaurants for dinner and the beautiful beach. The breakfast was delicious, and the innkeepers kept people's tastes in mind. The innkeepers were the most pleasant and caring hosts. I would highly recommend this perfect slice of heaven.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for a few nights last year as we were on our way to visit our son up north. We had never stayed at a bed and beakfast before and were a little unsure about it... but it was amazing. Steve immediately made us feel at home, he and Mark are the perfect hosts. The Inn itself is beautiful, such charm and so pretty. The rooms look like home decor magazine photos. Before we pulled out of the driveway to leave, we were already looking at our calenders to see when we could go back and stay longer. Oh, and the breakfast was so wonderful! We are returning this year.

Picking a honeymoon place was very important for both my husband to be and myself. We searched a variety of places in Ogunquit, and then choose the Puffin Inn. We saw pictures of their rooms and the Inn online, and both decided that it looked like the place we wanted to go. We don't care about fancy bathrooms or a pool, we just wanted something quiet and romantic. Puffin Inn was perfect! It is hard to describe in words how much we enjoyed our experience at the Puffin Inn. But from the minute we got there, we felt so welcomed. The gardens were beautiful, the food was delicious, and Mark and Steve were very helpful and friendly. My now new husband and I have talked about Puffin Inn many times since we left and how much we enjoyed our time there; we can't wait to go back this summer and visit for our first anniversary. We would and have highly recommended this Inn to everyone!

It is my pleasure to share my experience at the wonderful Puffin Inn. Many Bed and Breakfasts cite their romantic qualities. I can see that the Puffin Inn is certainly that, but it is also a great experience for a solo retreat. From the moment I made my reservation to the moment Mark and Steve hugged me goodbye, I felt very special indeed. My room was beyond comfortable with a wonderful bed and quality linens, luxurious soaps and other small details right down to the way the towels are folded. Fresh and clean bathroom, even in the corners!Mark and Steve are the perfect hosts. Steve greeted me right in the convenient parking area when I first arrived and Mark checked me into my room. I love the individual tables of the breakfast room, although guests are able to still chat with each other. Steve bakes a delicious bread each morning and Mark always prepared a tasty and creative entree. Most importantly, was the fact that I felt welcomed as a solo guest and that made my stay so enjoyable. Thank you Mark and Steve!

My husband brought me here for our first anniversary. I didnt really know what to expect at first, but when we drove up and I saw the house for the first time I was really excited! We stayed in the main house on the 3rd floor. It was so beautiful and inviting and really serene. We had our own private bathroom and really loved that. The main house itself- it is exquisite. I loved the rich history of the house, and how passionate Steve and Mark are about it all. As for breakfast...3 courses, YUM! I could seriously get used to that. The food was amazing. And the cookies should win an award themselves. The innkeepers Mark and Steve were both wonderful. I loved how they were accessible at all times! Their kindness beams and radiates. Over all, this was the best times we have had in Ogunquit. I could really keep going on about it, because this review cannot do it justice. It was awesome and we will most certainly be returning!! Thanks you guys!
