Augustus Bove House

Corner Route 302 and 114 , Naples, ME 04555 USA (Show map)


You are welcome to the Augustus Bove House. Originally known as the Hotel Naples, in the "horse and buggy" days, it was one of the first "summer hotels" of the area. Our central location and easy access places us within easy walking distance to causeway, restaurants, recreations and shops. A four season area of activity, Naples has something of interest for everyone. "Yankee Magazine" travel guide has chosen our B&B as one of their editor's picks for an "...outstanding reason to visit New England."

Amazing stay!

We just got home from our first and most defiantly not our last stay at The Augustus Bove House. This was our first B&B so I was little nervous. Arlene was so warm and welcoming and not to mention absolutely adorable! Our room had everything we needed. I loved the details of our room, even the little basket in the bathroom of things you may have forgotten. Breakfast was great, eggs, bacon, toast, muffins, fresh fruit, coffee, juice....all you can eat. It was great! Arlene sat with us and chatted while we ate breakfast and sent me off with a hug when I left. I highly recommend this are and the Augustus Bove House for your vacation. I cant wait to go back!! Ohhh and they welcomed my dog too!!! Great great place!!!!

Home away from home

We needed a place to stay for a couple nights on our way to see friends. Arlene and David are quite the hosts with their many stories of running an Inn. Ask Arlene to tell you the skunk story! There are also some wonderful restaurants in the village, a state park nearby, and of course, the lake. We loved our spacious room and view of the lake. Hope to return sometime.

Wonderful Experience at Augustus Bove House

Large, comfortable room with all the comforts of home. Dining area is open all night for coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Clean, comfortable and beautiful rooms. Dave and Arlene are delightful, hard working hosts. Lake and dining is right across the street! Lots of activities available and the price is right. We will become regulars!

Wonderful Getaway.

Arlene does B&B's like no one else. We travel worldwide and this was one of the finest experiences we have ever had. Beautifully appointed rooms w/period antiques, comfortable beds and sitting rooms, the breafast was superb and Arlene was so wonderful to us. We had an attic room w/a sitting room. It was cozy but spacious, quiet and very romantic. We will always stay w/Arlene when we can. Superb!!!!

Sigma Chi Fall Reunion at Augustus Bove House

The Inn Keepers - Dave and Arlene - made our stay at their B&B a most memorable weekend. They delighted us with their hospitality and wonderful stories. It was like living in "finer" times being at this B&B - would highly recommend it to anyone. Their "made to order" breakfasts were delicious and were included in the room rate. Just a great value for your money.

Regret only two nights

Classical Victorian home. Comfortable charming room with well appointed bathroom. Good bed. Outstanding breakfast. We loved the period dinning room where we sat together at table with other guests, supported by our effective hosts. We are encouraged to seek more B & B experiences.

across from Long Lake gorgeous views

In the middle of nowhere Maine is a beautiful B and B across from Long Lake and multiple restaurants and bars within one block. There are no other places to stay unless you are camping. Across the street you can take ferry rides, rent jet skis or even go on helicopter rides. The Augustus Bove House is run by a hot ticket Arlene who goes out of her way to make you feel like part of her family. The room was lovely and so was the private bathroom. I wish we stayed longer.

Gracious hosts; amazing location
