Visit Maine bed and breakfast inns for waterfront luxury and romantic fun

Maine’s bed and breakfast inns welcome you to some of the prettiest and more interesting towns in all of New England. B&Bs on the Maine coast in places like Kennebunkport, Old Orchard Beach, and Boothbay Harbor may be situated in 200-year-old mansions or former sea captains’ homes. Antique furnishings and modern amenities like HDTV, hot tubs, iPod docks, and swimming pools make a bed and breakfast a wonderful place for a romantic weekend or family vacation on the water.

A stay at a Maine B&B or a historic home puts you in walking distance or a quick drive from Maine attractions like whale watching, boat and schooner cruises, beach walking, paddling, and shopping. Many Maine bed and breakfasts are open year-round, so you can enjoy their luxury and personal service from the beach days of summer to cozy, snow-capped winter evenings. See the listings below and make your reservation soon.
