Picking a Maine Bed and Breakfast

It sometimes seems like there are a gazillion inns in the great state of Maine, so selecting a Maine Bed and Breakfast for your vacation or quick getaway can be a daunting process.  Sure there are lots of travel blogs, review websites, and B&B listing sites, but where’s a person to start the search?  I decided to put on my traveler’s hat and figure out where to go!

Romantic Maine Bed and Breakfast
There’s no denying our 1860 roots!

First, it’s important to decide on what kind of setting you are looking for.  If you’re looking for mountains and cliffs, the Maine Stay Inn is probably not going to make the list for that particular visit.  And if you’re looking for rustic, we’re probably not going to meet you this time.  Beaches for fun in the sun?  Or a quintessential New England village?  We’ve got that covered!

Second, you’ve got to set the tone.  Sometimes your traveling companion(s) set the mood.  I mean, if you’re on a mother-daughter getaway, you’re probably not too concerned about having mood lighting or an oversized whirlpool tub.  And having two beds is usually not on the top of the list when you’re planning a romantic weekend.  Occasionally, though, there’s some overlap, and that’s when you’ve got to use you best judgement and dig a little deeper to find the perfect spot to meet everyone’s needs!  I mean, at our Maine Bed and Breakfast, we are fortunate to have rooms that work great for families and some indulgently romantic suites, but we also have rooms that offer some additional flexibility to travelers seeking to check off more than one box.

Finally, though, you have to pick a style that works for you – and that doesn’t mean just decor.  Yes, if you adore Victorian architecture and design, staying in a sleek modern place is probably not the best fit.  Or, you might that traditional styles float your boat in the wintertime but that you need something a tad lighter during the  summer months.  So once you figure out what’s going to fit the bill for your next vacation, give us a call and we’ll help you determine if our Maine Bed and Breakfast is the right fit or if we’ll have to wait to catch you next time!
