Bed and ???

3.8 on July 23, 2014

I have never had a continental breakfast at a bed and breakfast before. They had cereal, bread, and muffins. Nothing hot. Nothing homemade. The cream curdled in my coffee!

Innkeeper Response
Sorry you felt that way about the breakfast and sure you even stayed here If you did I guess you didn't look on our website for a discription of our breakfast. We get up a 4:30 each morning 7 days a week to bake the 3 - 4 dozen fresh homemade muffins and about 10 lbs of fresh fruit salad daily. Where have you ever seen that a continental breakfast is hot food. You also stated we had bread. the breads we serve are either (wheat, Oat or 12 Grain bread), with english muffins and cinn raisin bread there are assorted jam,s peanut butter, cream cheese and butter along with milk and juice. Not sure what more you were looking for in a breakfast.


Great get away, close to beach but far from the noise!

Couldn't believe how quiet this b&b was. House was immaculate, innkeepers were gracious. We've been to other b&b's where the breakfast's were outstanding ... this was a typical continental breakfast.


Great visit to Old Orchard - perfect place to stay

Peace and quite in OOB

5 on July 10, 2014

Our first time at OOB and we couldn't have chosen a nicer place to stay. This little piece of heaven is in walking distance go "Uptown" and the beach, but far enough to get away from the noise. The owners are great and they offer excellent living quarters. The pool was crystal clear and the breakfast was awesome!!!


Lovely, quiet property

4.2 on July 07, 2014

Very nice property, walking distance from the beach, but away from the noisy downtown beach area. The hosts gave us great recommendations for dining and provided a very nice breakfast. We made a last minute reservation, but they were still prepared to help my husband with gluten free offerings. A very nice swimming pool is a great enhancement to the property. We recommend highly!!


Lovely visit

My Mum and I stayed at Atlantic Birches for the first time recently. We found the inn by chance, what good luck for us! We had a lovely stay, Heidi and Ray the innkeepers are lovely and super helpful. They supplied us with lots of ideas for our first trip to Maine. Old Orchard beach is a fun town with lots to do, the Inn is very conveniently located , walking distance to everything. The Inn is quiet, clean and cosy. Great continental breakfast served daily. Would recommend to friends they stay here!
