Even though this review is being written a year later we still have very fond memories of the Bradford B & B. After staying at a fishing camp for 3 nights (and having a wonderful time) we were looking forward to a more comfortable bed. This B & B had everything! We had a very comfortable night's rest and a wonderful breakfast the next morning. Their chickens provided the wonderful eggs for our breakfast. Our hosts were very friendly and we had a good time visiting with them and learning more about the area. Very early in the morning my husband went for a walk down to the general store where he joined the locals for a cup of coffee.. His cup was kept filled and the conversations were fun to hear. We look forward to going back this year.

My wife was born in Patten in 1960 and spent her first 30 years there so we had to stay at Irene Bradford's House when we went to Patten to visit the relatives and enjoy the fantastic Pioneer Days celebration last summer 2014. We stashed our 12 year old son at Grammie's and spent 2 nights at this great B&B. Stephen and Filena were incredibly hospitable and the chance to stay at Irene's house was unforgettable. Thanks so much, guys, for making our stay so memorable. Great blueberry pancakes, coffee and juice and thanks so much for the tour of the entire place! It was a journey back to the good ole days!!! The house is located in the precise center of town and it made a great place for viewing the parade and visiting relatives and enjoying the Pioneer Days activities! We'll definitely see you again soon!! Lisa Heath & Ron Dovzak

My parents and I stayed here while visiting relatives. The house is very nice, with so much to look at and admire. Beds were very comfortable and warm, and it felt like staying in someone's home. Every morning we had an amazing spread for breakfast including fresh eggs from the chickens on the property. Filena and Stephen were great hosts and made us feel right at home. I highly recommend this B & B if you want a great experience with beautiful surroundings.

We loved our stay at Bradford House B & B. The rooms were delightfully decorated, we felt so at home there. Stephen and Filena were exceptionally attentive to our needs. The service was exceptional and we had tasty home cooked breakfasts each day. We would highly recommend you to stay there upon your next visit to ME. We experienced a beautiful Autumn vacation there. Thank you for making our trip so memorable. R. & A. Oregon

I am a business traveler, and needed to stay close to my client’s office. I found this lovely bed and breakfast; they served yummy blueberry pancakes, with fresh orange juice. When I returned in the evening, I found fresh baked cookies and my room tidy (what a treat). The rooms are nice and clean, and Filena and Stephen are great!

This Bed & Breakfast is clean and welcoming, and it feels very cozy. Our room was sunny and bright in the mornings, and I thought the bed was really comfortable. This was my first B&B experience, so I don't have much to compare on, but I really couldn't think of anything I would have changed. The one thing I did notice is how quiet the location is. Even though the house was full of guests, we never heard a thing from the other rooms and I even asked our hostess if we were the only ones there. Note: Because we were on a really busy schedule, I didn't actually get to try the food!

What a nice place to stay in Patten. We enjoyed our stay at The Bradford House. Filena & Stephen were great hosts. The bed was comfortable and the breakfasts were tasty and filling too! We look forward to staying there again. Thank you!!

I recently stayed at The Bradford House Bed & Breakfast in Patten, Maine, and found it to be a wonderful B&B. It was clean and comfortable. The hosts/owners were pleasant and attentive. The breakfasts were fantastic. There is nothing like those farm-fresh eggs or their delicious home-made blueberry pancakes! All in all, a relaxing and enjoyable stay which I would highly recommend.

Charming,warm, and comfortable. Caring owners with attention to details. Hoping to make a return trip next year. You feel as though you are travelling way back in time, with owners who "get it",fully appreciating their property,and offering you the opportunity to do the same.

Stephen and Filena are very gracious hosts; we enjoyed good conversation and an excellent breakfast. The B&B is clean and the old farm house is charming. Make sure you check out the barn! We would definitely stay here again.

What a plesant surprise to find this "gem" of a B&B in Patten, ME. Our hosts Filena & Stephen have worked hard and continue to work diligently to make this a wonderful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of your travel schedule. We literally didn't want to leave, Stephen showed us around the place and explaind some of the facinating history. For me, it was like going back to Grandpa's farm and loving every second of the visit. Having a wonderful country breakfast cooked and served by Filena from her country kictchen was the icing on the cake. When back in this part of the country again I will plan on some time being spent right here. Thanks so much Filena & Stephen!

We had an incredible stay at the Bradford House B&B. The owners treated us as warmly as family. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and well-decorated. There were lots of thoughtful touches: big, pretty glass containers filled with soaps and shampoos and conditioners and bath salts and lotions from which choose for a shower or bath, an article about the town in which we were staying, and even a bedtime snack. The breakfast was amazing, and fresh from the farm! (fresh scrambled eggs and fresh bacon for breakfast, among other things) All in all, it was a WONDERFUL stay.

I felt right at home, that is at my grandma's house, from the moment I arrived. It was that warm feeling of someone taking care of you along with some nice cookies to prove it. The super comfortable bed and luxury towels were even better than grandma's. Breakfast with eggs from their own chickens was a real treat.

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at the Bradford House, a lovely inn tucked away in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin in Patten, Maine. When we drove in, we were a bit put off by the ugly modern house that sits in what was once a front yard, but as soon as we walked in to the Inn and met Filena, Steve and "Alice" (the antique wood cook stove), our misgivings were more than dispelled. Our room was well-appointed, very clean and extremely comfortable. Filena offered to cook us dinner since most restaurants in town close after Labor Day, and our dinner was replete with good things fresh from their farm (including the pork chops)! Breakfast was just as yummy, and we were sorry to leave but eager to get on with our day in beautiful Baxter State Park. I would recommend both this inn and Patten as a good jumping-off point for a visit to this part of Maine.

We stayed at the Bradford House as the last night of our holiday. What a find!! We were given the attic room and we had lots of space to stretch out. The room and the house are beautiful. The breakfast was fit for a lumberjack with almost everything from their farm. Stephen and Filena are wonderful hosts. Go Bucks!!!

The Bradford House was a cozy, adorable home. It was spotlessly clean. You could tell the owners value having clean linens, towels, etc. for their guest. Their beds were top-of-the-line with clean and crisp sheets, super soft bedding with fluffy down comforters. The owners were as nice as could be. They were caring and genuinely nice people. This place is definitely a piece of history you wouldn't want to miss if you are in the area. Breakfast was a delicious, home-cooked meal (not just cereal and fruit, as most bed-and-breakfasts serve). My husband and I had a perfect stay and I highly recommend this bed&breakfast to anyone.

My husband and I were very pleased with our overnight stay. Our room was huge as was the king sized bed. I loved the antiques and crafts displayed throughout. The Singers were exceptional hosts. I will definitely recommend The Bradford House to my friends. The breakfast was second to none!

We stayed in room 1, the room was immaculate, the linens were first class, the nightly treats were delicious. Our breakfast in the morning was a wonderful farmers' breakfast and was made from scatch. We enjoyed the history, barn, chickens, and beautiful organic garden. We were priviledged to sample Filena's canning of all her garden vegetables. This truly is a wonderful place to stay!!!

My wife and I stayed only one night with Filena & Steve at the Bradfordhouse, but after we had finished our tour of Down East Maine we both concluded that this was a place we could have spent more time. The accomodations are excellent, the hospitality and conversation are excellent, the breakfast is all from scratch and is excellent as well. If you are into History this place is for you - underground railroad stop is all I should need to say. Plus it is very close to the North entrance to Baxter S.P. a gem in the north woods. Enjoy your time here. We did!

Had a great stay. Good breakfast and piece of history has been savied in this 1842 house and 1840 barn.

We were met by exuberantly friendly hosts who were eager to accomodate and please. Our room was quaintly appointed in period furniture and decor. The bed was incredibly comfortable with a thick feather tick to sink down in to and a lightweight down blanket, the pillows were just right to sink your head into and fall in to a deep sleep. We had a scrumptious dinner with fresh vegetables from the organic garden served on an old style farmhouse table in a quaint dining room. Breakfast was delicious as was the coffee! We would highly recommend this B&B for friends and travelers!!
