A Trip We Will Never Forget

5 on November 27, 2017

We recently took a mother-daughter trip to Amy and Matt’s bed and breakfast. It was our first visit to that part of the country, so we were a little nervous. We quickly realized that we had chosen the perfect place. Amy made us feel so comfortable and welcomed! The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was so relaxing. The decor was beautiful, and everything was clean and fresh. My daughter and I will remember this experience forever!! If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely stay with Matt and Amy again.


Great place to stay

There are many positives to share about this Inn: 1. The Room was nice and well appointed. 2. The bed was made every day, which I found to be a nice surprise however not a requirement for me. 3. When I needed additional towels, they were replaced right away. 4. We asked numerous questions on where to go and how to get to the national parks. Matt offered several suggestions, alternate routes and included must do scenic areas. 5. The breakfast was started right on time, with a pot of good coffee ready. 6. The breakfast area was cozy and you could easily chat with other guests or savor your coffee and relax. 7. The breakfast was outstanding and improved with each day of our stay. We stayed 5 nights and found we looked forward to breakfast more each day. Breakfast wasn't the standard danish, fruit and coffee but something savory along with sweet. We often forgo breakfast at Inns but not this one. 8. Matt and Amy noticed I didn't eat a portion of the breakfast the first day and made special arrangements for my food allergy without my request. I was very excited to experience a real fall, see color and hike the outdoors. Matt and Amy helped to make the trip a bit more fun with an authentic New England feel.

Matt & Amy are wonderful hosts. My daughter and I stayed at PineCrest B&B for two nights recently; the room was quiet, quaint, clean, comfortable and inviting. Breakfast was delicious and served quickly after we sat down. I would highly recommend PineCrest - the location is wonderful as well - you can walk downtown to grab a bite to eat for dinner or just a stroll around the area.


Lovely!!

Home away from home

5 on August 25, 2017

This is our first experience staying at a bed&breakfast and it was a memorable one. We were a family of four and we stayed in one of the largest rooms in the house. It had a nice layout. The master bedroom was separated from the living room with a pullout sofa with a connecting bathroom in the middle, giving us (my husband and I), and the girls some privacy. The innkeepers, Matt and Amy, were very amicable hosts. They offered invaluable tips on top-notch farm-to-table restaurants when we told them that's what brought us to Portland. We really appreciated the made beds and general upkeep upon returning from a long day of sightseeing and adventures. Breakfast was delicious and satisfying. They really took the time to cook up every morning. Not to mention that they were very accommodating to our vegetarian daughter. Having said that, we highly recommend PineCrest and would definitely come back the next time we find ourselves in Portland.


Great Bed and Breakfast

My husband and I recently stayed in the Hamilton Room at the PineCrest Inn and it was delightful. The room was artfully decorated and very comfortable with special touches. That particular room also has an outside entrance which was convenient for moving luggage. The breakfast was delicious. Both Matt and Amy were very helpful in recommending restaurants in nearby Portland and the area. We enjoyed their wide selection of movies which we could enjoy in our room and fit our mood at the end of a wonderful 3 week vacation in Maine.


Cozy Weekend Stay

4.8 on June 11, 2017

We had a wonderful stay for two nights while visiting friends in Portland which was just a short 15 minute drive to downtown. It was great to be a bit "out of the way" and Matt and Amy were wonderful hosts. The room was cozy and well-appointed and Amy kindly let us have a fire in the fireplace even though it had been cleaned out for the season. The breakfasts were fabulous...really top notch. We will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity.


Nice Stay in Gorham

4.8 on May 22, 2017

The rooms are beautifully appointed, and very comfortable. Personally, I might have preferred a bathtub to the shower, but all else was excellent. The food was really delicious and offered a nice variety. The service was friendly, professional and always helpful. I'd go back, and I highly recommend it to others.
