A lovely place to stay

4.8 on August 20, 2017

We have stayed at the Oxford House Inn twice, while traveling between Maine and Vermont, and recommend it highly. The rooms are spacious and airy, the meals fresh and delicious, and the staff, friendly and helpful.


One of a Kind B&B

The Oxford House Inn is a one of a kind find in Maine! The food and beverage is top notch and the people are wonderful. We won't stay anywhere else on our annual trip to Maine.


Our home away from home...

5 on August 08, 2017

We have been staying with Natalie and Jonathan a good 8 (possibly 9?) years now..sometimes 3 times a year! It's such a great place that you almost don't want to tell anyone about it! It's like our little hideaway. Natalie, Jonathan and their amazing staff make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in til the moment you leave. We honestly cannot say enough good things about the whole experience there. The rooms are beautiful, we've stayed in them all LOL..and the restaurant is TOP NOTCH but not 'stuffy' at all...just fantastic food in a casual laid back setting where everyone makes you feel welcome. There is so much to do in the area no matter what time of year you stay and Jonathan is glad to share with you all the best spots to go! You can make it as adventurous or as relaxing as you want it. In the winter when we go we rarely even leave the Inn! It's relaxing down time for us and when we're ready to eat we just have to walk downstairs to a 5 star restaurant and then walk back up to our room! I could go on and on and on..but I'll say this..if you are ever anywhere near Fryeburg...you should ABSOLUTELY consider staying at OHI..I promise you won't be disappointed. :)


Terrific Stay!

Everything about The Oxford House was perfect: spacious and comfortable room, tremendous service and welcoming host and excellent food. We will not stay anywhere else in western Maine!


Pleasant - As always

4.6 on July 11, 2017

We have stayed here in the past and will stay again. The food is great and the staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Not one complaint. The view is stunning from the porch and we loved the bird feeders.


Quaint, cozy, charming and peaceful

Natalie & Jonathan couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Jonathan is an excellent cook and knows the area well - so your stay can easily be packed with suggestions on what to do. Make sure one of them is taking in a music act at the fabulous Stone Mountain Arts Center - just 8 miles from the Inn. Enjoyed our stay immensely.


World Class in Tiny Village

The Oxford House is an exceptional place with beautifully appointed rooms, excellent service, and delicious food. Meaghan, our hostess, was so pleasant and helpful, and Stevi, our waitress, was engaging, friendly, and fun. Dinner was phenomenal, seriously one of the best meals we've had in a long time. I can't recommend Oxford House enough. Highest marks on everything.


The Sewing Room.

4.8 on June 30, 2017

We stayed in one of the smaller rooms and it was lovely. A beautiful view of the mountains and some welcoming aromas from the kitchen! The staff couldn't be more helpful and the coffee was delicious. The bathroom was small but adequate for our needs. Two of the rooms have large bathrooms and two have smaller ones - refitted to allow for private bathrooms in this once elegant home. We have stayed here several times and will be returning.


Early Summer in the Mountains

4.4 on June 24, 2017

The inn was lovely, great views and grounds as well. Our only issue was the A/C unit in our room did not work. Fortunately, a lovely staff person found us a fan and we were able to open windows and be comfortable. Breakfast was great. Only wish we could have stayed for dinner!


Ornithologist's delight

Delightful room. Excellent food for breakfast and evening meal. Wonderful views from breakfast room. The many birds coming to the bird feeders gave us much pleasure.
