Charming Victorian Inn in Outstanding location

4.6 on July 07, 2018

Removed from the crowds of OOB, yet just a short walk away! Less than 30 minutes from Kennebunkport or Portland, a wonderful “Home” base. Nancy, Steve, and Meghan are welcoming hosts and their porch is the perfect place to relax and regroup. We loved it!


June stay

5 on June 28, 2018

This is not our first stay here and we'll be back in July. The location is perfect; the hosts are warm and welcoming: and the rooms are charming.


Great Service

We found this inn online and were not disappointed! Room was clean and comfortable. Meghan was so attentive and a real pleasure to meet. We will definitely return. We did not eat at the inn so our score for that is given only because the review demands it to complete.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! We know you have many choices when booking a vacation and we are so glad that you chose our Inn. We hope to see you again!

Good value for the price.

3.0 on October 20, 2017

Stayed in a suite in the Cottage. Room was good sized. Well maintained. The inn owners were outstanding. Very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was below par. The muffins were very good but it was a continental breakfast no different than that at a budget chain motel.

Innkeeper Response
I'm so glad that you enjoyed your accommodations. Our breakfast is continental but we also include on a daily basis fresh fruit salad, yogurt, granola, a variety of cereals, bagels and english muffins, as well as either quiche, frittatas,meats and cheeses and various other casseroles. We also cater to special diets such as gluten free and vegan. I hope you will come back to visit and enjoy our full plus continental breakfast once again! We also do Sangria Saturdays on our front porch during the summer. Thank you again for choosing The Atlantic Birches Inn, we appreciate your business.

Nice place

4.4 on October 19, 2017

Atlantic Birches Inn is a very nice B&B. The owners are super. It is an easy walk to the beach. The continental breakfast was a little disappointing. We have stayed in numerous B&Bs and they usually have a unique breakfast, not the same thing you could get if you stayed at the Days Inn. Otherwise, a very nice place to stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! We offer a wonderful continental breakfast that includes a variety of fresh baked muffins, fresh fruit salad, yogurt and granola as well as a variety of cereals, bagels, meats and cheeses and english muffins. Everyday we offer a "special" that could be quiche, frittata, fresh biscuits with Maine Blueberry Honey or a variety of other casseroles. We also cater to special diets including gluten free and vegan. I hope you will come back to The Atlantic Birches Inn and try our breakfast once again. We appreciate your input. It helps us to improve! We also do "Sangria Saturday" on the front porch throughout the summer - it's a wonderful opportunity for our guest to get to know one another. Thank you again for choosing The Atlantic Birches Inn for your accommodations! We appreciate your business!

Nicest Hostesses!

5 on October 16, 2017

Meghan and Nancy are so sweet and helpful. Meghan waited for us to arrive (late). She was so gracious and made us feel very welcome. Nancy started our morning off with a smile, great breakfast, engaging conversation, and helpful suggestions about what to do in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! We know you have many options to choose from for accommodations and we are so glad that you chose us! We hope to see you again!!

About the innkeepers

Searching for something fun in retirement! We stumbled upon the Inn while looking for a beach house in OOB. Meeting new people, planning events, providing a beautiful and fun vacation spot for others is what makes us happy! We have a big wonderful family who will be sharing in our new life! Our daughter Meghan will be managing the Inn full time. Join us on the porch for a cup of coffee as the sun rises or a glass of wine as it sets. Looking forward to making new friends from around the world!
