The 1774 Inn at Phippsburg, Maine is a historically important pre-revolution mansion built in 1774 offering superbly comfortable and relaxing accommodation in a magnificent riverside setting. The main house with its 4 spacious guest bedrooms and private bathrooms retains many original features and provides a welcoming base from which to explore one of the most unspoiled and beautiful parts of New England. There are a further 4 guest rooms in the 'ell' building which was added to the main house in 1870, including the romantic 'Woodshed Room' with its own front entrance and private verandah with steps leading down to the 4 acres of grounds and private riverside frontage.

Best Sister Trip Yet

5 on October 21, 2014

My sister and I take a week long get away once a year and the 1774 Inn was the last and best stop of the week for our 2014 trip. The peace, quiet and natural beauty of the setting was perfect for us. We loved the ship builders room! Sitting on our porch and enjoying the brightest display of stars at night was magical. Jackie and John were so kind and hospitable and we felt like we had new forever friends. Just by visiting with us they knew exactly what we were looking for. Jackie suggested a quirky little lunch/farm one day and we knew she understood places that were special and native to the area that we would enjoy. Thank you for such a lovely three nights! -Julie Cottrell

Stop looking-- you've found it.

1774 Inn Could not have been any better! This is the most perfect B&B we have ever experienced. This property is beautifully historic and private, yet very close to everything in town. It is within walking distance to the Phippsburg Congregational Church, which is where we were married and is also beautiful, historic and highly recommended. A short drive to restaurants on the water and popham state park/beach. One of the most beautiful sunsets we've ever seen. Thank You Jackie & John for your hospitality and most delicious breakfast!!!

I stay in many B and B's and the 1774 Inn is by far the best I have ever stayed in. Beautiful location, gorgeous rooms, incredible Breakfasts and the nicest , most helpful yet unobtrusive hosts ever. I hope to be back many times!! I was traveling with my 17 year old daughter who also can't wait to go back!

A hidden gem!

Tucked in a lovely corner of Phippsburg, with a gorgeous view of the Kennebec River and near Popham Beach and Hermit Island, this historic inn is exquisite. The innkeepers are articulate, pleasant and run a delightful place. I would recommend it to all my friends. We will definitely keep coming to this terrific place!

Three Perfect Days in Phippsburg

5 on August 11, 2014

The 1774 Inn is comfortable and beautifully decorated. It has a lovely, peaceful view of the river that we looked forward to enjoying at the end of each day. John is a wonderful host. He knows the area in detail and made excellent recommendations for dinners, activities and sightseeing. We thoroughly enjoyed the gourmet breakfasts and the interesting company of the other guests. Although our first visit, everyone else had been there before and was returning to a place that clearly held special memories. We hope to return also!

Super view, friendly owner, amazing food

And that i wall you can ask from such an old property. the rooms are OK, but that is not way we came to Maine. I strongly recommend you try swimming in the lake just at the bottom of Parker Head road: we saw the locals do it and it turned out to be the perfect temperature, clean, and beutifull. and, if you have a Kayak, the bold eagles on Goat Island are very active and worth a visit.

a great place to stay

gorgeous inn and town

We arrived to a charming welcoming from John. Showed us around the beautifully restored home. Our room was very cute and comfortable. Before going out to dinner my husband and I enjoyed a glass of wine by the waters edge. Breakfast each morning was delicious, hats off to the girls. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, can't wait to return.
