Inns and B&Bs in the Greater Portland & Casco Bay area place you in comfort & natural beauty

Portland's inns and B&Bs are smaller, sometimes in historic homes, and they are closely tapped in to the local atmosphere, customs, history, and attractions. The strong point of inns in the Casco Bay area of ME is their personalized service, European charm and quiet gentility. Innkeepers are usually pleased to offer additional small services and to give guests the lowdown on local dining and entertainments, like the Old Port, the waterfront, and the Arts District. Despite their old-world flavor, Portland inns are fully equipped with creature comforts like television and Internet access.

Seaside inn has long heritage of providing relaxing vacations to beach-going guests

The tradition of comfortable accommodations, great dining and lazy days at the beach goes back a long way at the Higgins Beach Inn. Established in the 1890s, the classic Maine hotel was completely renovated in 2017 and now welcomes guests to rooms and suites with soothing seaside decor, all the modern amenities and space to relax. An on-site restaurant serves fresh beach fare, craft brews and cocktails in a casual atmosphere on a covered three-season porch, and there are burgers and hot dogs at a snack shack on the sandy beach, a stone’s throw from the inn. Lots of activities in the area, from nature centers and hiking trails to ice cream and candy emporiums, farms and cultural venues.

Relax in this welcoming, spacious inn, then head into Freeport

There’s a warm welcome at the Brewster House Bed & Breakfast for every guest, whether they have come to Freeport for LL Bean and outlet shopping or to explore the region’s coastal regions (boating, beaches, lighthouses – and lobster shacks!). The 19th century inn’s spacious rooms, with equally spacious private baths, are the perfect place to relax (on ironed linens, maybe in a four-poster bed, or in front of a gas fireplace) before and after your quick, three-block jaunt into town. Beautifully landscaped with a porch and backyard garden perfect for relaxing with wine or iced tea, the inn also offers a hearty gourmet three-course breakfast featuring a variety of sweet and savory items made fresh in the inn’s kitchen.
