The Elmere house

525 Post rd , Wells, ME 04090 USA (Show map)


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.

Just loved the place and host..would return in a minute. Equally important is do NOT miss "Period Antiques" across the street. It will take your breath away.

A Great Place to Stay in Maine

The Elmere House was great. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Sun is an excellent hostess. She's serves a very nice breakfast. She was very helpful with seeing the sites and recommending restaurants for dinner. You will not be disappointed with her or her Inn. The Pollocks

Great stay

While traveling for business, I stayed at the Elmere house for two nights in June 2014. Everything was perfect: charm, location, bedding and cleanliness. Son Mi went out of her way to make it a great stay. Thank you!

My friend, my niece, and I stayed over just one night. Wish we could have stayed longer. Quiet, serene, comfortable, and warm. Sunny, the Inn owner is a lovely and friendly lady. Enjoyed our conversations. Thank you Sunny for that delicious breakfast!! Hope to stay at your place again in the future.

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

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!
