About

Under New Ownership - 2016! Bourne Bed & Breakfast (formerly The Morning Dove) is a gracious Victorian bed and breakfast in the heart of Ogunquit. The Inn offers year round accommodations on the southern Maine coast. Our location, set among country gardens, is perfect for an easy walk to sandy beaches, Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way, outstanding restaurants, and the Ogunquit Playhouse. Centrally located and minutes to all that Ogunquit has to offer, Bourne Bed & Breakfast is your cozy getaway in Southern Maine. Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way, Ogunquit Village, and Ogunquit Beach are only minutes away on foot. Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned visitor to Ogunquit, we hope that you'll love the charm and relaxed atmosphere of B3. While we love children and 4 legged family members, our 1860s home is not a suitable choice for your stay while here in Ogunquit. Our rooms can only allow up to two guests per room and can not accommodate cribs or rollaways.

Great Holiday Weekend Away

5 on July 20, 2016

We were so fortunate to have been referred to B3 for our 4th of July weekend. We had a small group across 3 of the rooms and each room had it's own unique charm and all were very comfortable. There was daily service to the rooms so they were always ready for us once we returned from the beach. Jimmy does a great job making all of the guest feel welcome from the moment you walk in! There's a great continental breakfast offering in the morning (the banana muffins are delicious), and everyday there was sangria and iced tea waiting for us after our return from a day at the beach! All of the personal touches really made what would have already been a good stay a great stay!

Innkeeper Response
Hi Michael! Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review! Can I just say you guys were awesome! and for those FB and Instagram fans check out their amazing 4th of July photo shoot taking right in our back yard here at the duck pond! We are thrilled you guys had such a great weekend and we look forward to your return visit soon and hopefully often!!!


Relaxing stay in Ogunquit

4.4 on July 18, 2016

My husband and I stayed here July 4th weekend. The location is great - about 10 minutes walk to Perkins Cove and the same to the town center near entrance to beach area. We walked everywhere but could've taken the trolley as the stop is very close. We were pleasantly surprised to find the continental breakfast was enough for us. The hard boiled eggs, yogurt, and peanut butter provided the protein my spouse needs in the AM. I appreciated the fresh cut fruit and relaxing with my coffee on the front porch. The house and yard are very nice - I was tempted to stay the day instead of getting out to see the sights. Check out the double hammock in the backyard! I hope Bourne Bed and Breakfast has an opening the next time we come to Ogunquit!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind review. It sounds like you truly loved the place and as new owners that makes us extremely happy and proud of the experience that we are striving to provide is working. We love that you mentioned that our Continental breakfast was enough for you to start your day and if you did need even more protein and other goodies don't forget about our fabulous discounted B3 Menu right around the corner at Amore Breakfast. We look forward to your return visit when you will hopefully share with us what else we can do for you to feel we are worthy of that perfect score. Until then, Jimmy & Brian

Dream the dream baby.

4.6 on July 12, 2016

David The place was fantastic. We were only about 100 feet from shore road where all the action is. Jimmy, our host, is very knowledgeable of the area and was always ready to assist us if needed. I highly recommend this bed & breakfast.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.. We love your title "Dream the Dream Baby"... Because that is exactly what we are doing, and when guests feel the same way when here at B3 it could not make us happier. Hopefully you can return soon and maybe in addition to our extensive Continental Breakfast you can take advantage of our B3 discounted breakfast menu located right around the corner at Amore Breakfast and we can earn the 5 star review that we always strive for... Thank you again for coming and living the dream with us... Jimmy & Brian


Wonderful new owners!

4.8 on July 08, 2016

This was our second stay at B3, but the first time with Jimmy and Brian as the owners. Our 2nd floor suite was perfect, and Jimmy is a wonderful host! Breakfast in the morning is great, and sangria Saturdays are lots of fun! We will definitely stay at B3 again. Michele and Jon

Endroit tranquille qui fait son charme. Bel accueil. Le déjeuner pourrait être plus généreux. Air climatisé dans les fenêtres bruyantes, mais les nuits fraîches nous permet de s'en passer.

Innkeeper Response
First of all thank you for choosing to stay with us here at B3.. While we appreciate that you found the Inn to be charming & quite we also strive to make every guests experience the best it can be... We are sorry to hear that you thought our "Continental Breakfast" that is explained on our website which also includes pictures, consisting of the best ground coffee roasted right here in Maine, fresh warm muffins from one of our local bakery's along with fresh cut fruit usually blueberries and strawberries along with whole bananas, apples, grapes and oranges, 2 choices or cereal, granola, yogurt, english muffins, bagels, including cream cheese, peanut butter, an assortment of Jelly's, and even real butter. along with with other baked goods and hard boiled eggs that you seemed to enjoy each morning during your stay could have been more generous. We suggest on your next visit you take advantage of our B3 breakfast special that is available at a special price to all of our B3 guests at the Amazing Amore Breakfast located less than 5 minutes from the Inn. As new owners here at B3 we are doing our best to provide a quality relaxing extra clean experience at a competitive value. Our only wish for all of our guests is that If there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable while you are here, just let us know as we make a point to ask all of our guests each morning how they are enjoying their stay and if there is anything we can do to make it more enjoyable... Thank you again for choosing to stay with us and we hope you will continue to do so in the future... "quiet place that is its charm . Bel Home . The breakfast could be more generous. Air conditioning in noisy windows, but cool nights allows us to do without".


Little gem in Ogunquit

4.8 on July 02, 2016

Easy walk to all the good things in Ogunquit: village, Marginal Way, Perkins Cove, Playhouse. Accommodating innkeeper. Love the breakfast option of upgrading to nearby Amore--best breakfast spot in Ogunquit. Nice job Jimmy and Brian. Bob

Innkeeper Response

Perfection!

5 on June 21, 2016

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bourne B & B. The rooms are tastefully decorated with many unexpected extras including a mini fridge, sweet treats and sangria served on the front porch. We took advantage of Billy's offer to obtain theater tickets for us for the Ogunquit Playhouse and were not disappointed. Highly recommend this little gem in the perfect location!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your Kind review... We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay here at B3 even if you did refer to me as Billy... LOL... Looking forward to your return visit...
