Complete Guide to The Best Maine Bed and Breakfasts

For the most personal service and genuine hospitality, book a genuine Maine bed and breakfast. Some bed and breakfasts in the state welcome families with children and are even pet-friendly, while others are exclusively reserved for adults and quiet romantic getaways.

Staying at a small Maine inn or bed and breakfast is all about meeting your fellow guests and innkeepers, sharing your day’s plans over freshly brewed coffee and baked muffins in the morning, and reflecting over a cocktail on the porch or by the fireplace in the evening.

The Bed and Breakfast Experience in Maine

A Maine bed and breakfast getaway is truly a unique and memorable experience for any traveler. B&Bs offer the most genuine form of friendly Maine hospitality and personal service. Innkeepers throughout the state pride themselves on welcoming guests into their inns like old friends.

If you are looking for things to do, your innkeepers will be happy to help. They can offer personal advice and local tips on where to go, what to see, and where to eat. Need a recommendation for a restaurant that serves the best seafood? Or a Maine beach to spend the day at? Your innkeepers and staff are happy to help with all of your travel needs.

Indulgent Amenities

The beauty of a bed and breakfast is that you have your own private quarters, as well as social interaction with other guests and the innkeepers. Many private rooms have fireplaces and Jacuzzis so luxurious and serene that you might not want to leave!

However, many guests say that the homemade breakfast is the best part of their stay at a Maine B&B — waking to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, pastries in the oven, and maple-smoked bacon on the grill. Another common feature is high tea with fresh-baked cookies or aperitif with cheese and crackers served in the living room as you return from a day of exploring Maine.

Where else can you enjoy a gourmet, home-cooked breakfast served fresh each morning with local ingredients — like Maine blueberries and maple syrup — as if it were in your own home?

Some B&Bs even offer spa services on-site, like in-room couples massages. Whether you plan to stay for a week or just a night, Maine B&Bs offer all the comforts of home for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation.

You will love the cozy and homey feel that these bed and breakfasts offer. Many are centrally located in Maine towns for easy accessibility to beaches and boat rides, shopping, dining, and whatever activities you choose to participate in on your Maine vacation.

Types of Maine Bed and Breakfasts

There are so many bed and breakfasts in Maine to choose from that any visitor can find exactly what they are looking for. Some of them are former grand seaside homes that have been converted into inns, while others are located along the beach or waterfront for an exciting sun and surf vacation.

Romantic Lodging for Couples

Maine bed and breakfasts tend to be popular among couples for romantic getaways. Often, the innkeepers are happy to arrange chilled Champagne, flowers, or chocolate-covered strawberries for guests upon arrival for special anniversary getaways. They can even make dinner reservations — like a concierge service, only far more personal.

If you are looking for an intimate getaway, head north where many historic mansions have been converted into luxurious guest rooms and gracious living and dining rooms in quaint Maine towns.

Family & Pet-Friendly Lodging

Although most bed and breakfasts are exclusively for adults, some of them also welcome children and pets! A family getaway to an authentic Maine B&B is a treat for the whole family.

Historic Lodging

Many Maine bed and breakfasts are registered as historic places, and guests love the exquisite design and detail of these well-maintained properties. Some of these inns even date back as far as the 1700s!

Generally, historic B&Bs have charming features, such as homemade linens and quilts, handcrafted woodwork, classic architecture, and local antiques complimented by modern comforts — like wireless internet; air conditioning; and steam showers, Jacuzzis, and hot tubs.

Budget to Luxury Lodging Options

If you are worried about staying within your price range during your Maine vacation, bed and breakfasts can be a very affordable option depending on where you stay. They can range from fancy, four-diamond properties with luxurious guest rooms and amenities to more casual, cozy, and affordable places with especially affordable rates in the low seasons of spring, fall, and winter in Maine.

A Bed and Breakfast for Every Season

Maine B&Bs are an ideal lodging option for any season. Spring brings blooming flowers and weather for enjoying a seaside stroll before the summer season starts. Maine inns often feature spectacular flower gardens on their grounds and fresh herb gardens that chefs utilize in their daily homemade breakfasts. Conversations tend to flow in the parlor or on the porch, just like on “The Bob Newhart Show.”

If you want to relax on the beach, explore the sea by boat, or dine on seafood outdoors, then summer is the time for you to visit. Coastal towns are filled with visitors shopping and enjoying the warm weather and sea breezes. And, a fall getaway to Maine is truly spectacular with the colorful foliage making for a beautiful and quiet setting.

Or, enjoy Christmas celebrations in coastal towns where tree lightings, craft fairs, and other local activities make for a festive getaway. Imagine lighting the fireplace and relaxing by the warmth in your room after a long day out in Maine’s chilly winter weather — all while sipping on homemade hot cocoa. You can’t beat that!

Bed and Breakfasts for Special Events

Charming bed and breakfasts frequently offer ideal settings for unique and memorable Maine weddings. Brides and grooms may rent out entire inns for their wedding parties for intimate and exclusive celebrations.

The antique charm of Maine inns brings a familiar feeling that makes weddings feel particularly special. Everything from the rehearsal dinner to the vows and reception can be taken care of with the help of knowledgeable and friendly Maine innkeepers.

Of course, honeymooning at a Maine bed and breakfast offers the ultimate in romance with sumptuous linens on a canopy four-poster bed, a fireplace and Jacuzzi in-room, and chilled Champagne. What a perfect way to start your marriage — a Maine bed and breakfast honeymoon.
