The Elmere House Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored, historic antique farm house. The interior retains much of charm of the mid-1800's with its warm and cozy furnishings and completely refinished, original wood floors. Yet, you'll find that it has all the amenities and comfort features of a new and modern accommodation. We have wheelchair/physically challenged accommodations in our Kezar Room.

Son Mi is a delightful host of a beautiful B & B

5 on September 07, 2014

We stayed two nights at The Elmere House in Wells. What good fortune! The Elmere House is clean, homey, and beautifully decorated. Best of all, our host, Son Mi is delightful – as is Abby, Son Mi’s little Yorkie. We heartily recommend the Elmere House. Rachael & Paul, East Montpelier, VT

We just spent two nights at The Elmere House. Son was a very gracious hostess and made us feel right at home the minute we walked in the door. This B&B has it all, the charm of an old farmhouse, modern conveniences, rooms that are very cozy, comfortable and private. We especially enjoyed Son's wonderful breakfast! We highly recommend a stay here, you won't be disappointed!! Dwain & Diana

Fall in Maine

5 on October 02, 2012

This was our first trip to Maine and we want to return tomorrow! Son Mi was so much fun to listen to and her dog Abby was great too. Son Mi served us the best breakfast in town and the beds were the most comfortable in the world. We arrived earlier in the day than planned but it was no problem. She gave us many ideas of where to go and what to do. The next time we come we want to take the train from Wells into Boston. You'll really enjoy a relaxing stay here. B. & L. from Michigan

A Maine get-away

5 on August 13, 2012

Son Mi's wonderful hospitality (and breakfasts!), her gorgeous inn and her sweet little Yorkie, Abby, made our 3-day (Aug. 1-3, 2012) get-away one we will never forget! It was wonderful coming back to the Ogunquit area after 10 years, and when we return, we'll stay at the Elmere House again. Thank you, Son!

A New England Delight!

Every time we come to Maine this is where we love to stay! The Elmere is a beautifully restored New England Farmhouse with the ameneties of a lovely new home. Every room is immaculate and beautifully decorated, the beds are so comfortable, and the bathrooms are modern and bright. Son Mi makes every visit special. If you stay once, you will want to return again!

Desperately needing a get-away weekend, I booked two nights at The Elmere House in Wells. What a great decision! It was not just a wonderful place to stay, The Elmere House felt like home. I slept like a baby in that comfortable bed, and there were plenty of windows for air and light. The house is lovingly decorated and, unlike an old farmhouse, The Elmere House has every convenience from wireless Internet to Netflex streamed movies on large screens. I loved my spacious bathroom! What is more, The Elmere House is kept spotless, truly spotless. Son-mi, the owner, is gracious, funny, interesting, and the best gem of all. I cannot forget Abby though. She made me laugh as I watched in amazement at her bravery, for such a tiny Yorkie! There is no shortage of personality, charm, or anything else at The Elmere House. I will be back, for sure.

warm hospitality

Son Mi is a most accommodating hostess, catering to our need for diabetic food and offering her charming living room for us to entertain my sister and nephew for several hours on two different days of our 5-day stay. Besides all the amenities listed, the grounds are lovely. The location is within easy walking distance of several good restaurants, an ice cream shop, the Catholic Church, and much more. We plan to return. Doris and David

What a charming inn! We felt like we were in good hands during our 4-day visit to southern Maine. The room was spectacularly comfortable, the meals outstanding and the many evenings in the hot tub with bottles of wine an indulgence. Son Mi, the innkeeper, was wonderful and gave us personal attention with planning local activities and made us feel "at home" during our stay. We are looking forward to returning soon for another long weekend.
