My husband and I spent a couple of nights at the Fiddlehead Inn. Perfect location if attending a function at the Darlings Riverfront venue. Saundra and Dick, made us feel very much at home. We enjoyed the casual environment and delicious breakfasts. The Inn is beautifully decorated with carefully chosen pieces that all have a story. They happily accomodated my... More

The Fiddlehead Inn is a beautiful well preserved civil war colonial filled with antiques. Saundra is an attentive helpful host. The coffee is good and the breakfast quite nice and fresh. You will need reservations for the more popular restaurants in Bangor. Call them yourself or ask Saundra to make reservations.

My boyfriend and I spent one night at this charming B&B - a stop between camping at Moosehead Lake and camping at Acadia. As others have said, Saundra's gracious, welcoming and pampering ways helped to make this a wonderful experience. It was a short walk to a nice dinner on the river. My boyfriend is not at all a vegetarian... More

Maticulously decorated and maintained; charming and quiet B&B. The innkeeper, Saundra, was gracious and made us feel as welcomed guests in her home. We stayed two nights in the Champlain room which overlooked the beautiful front gardens. Short walk to revitalized Penobscot River front. You won't be disappointed!

We had the quintessential b&b experience- comfortable, quiet, and clean accommodations, welcoming and attentive hostess, and truly delicious food! Saundra goes out of her way to make sure her guests have everything they need and feel at home. She puts a great deal of thought and effort into her breakfasts which are not only delicious but feature fresh local ingredients.... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights in the Stowe Room. The home is beautiful, warm, and inviting; made only more so by it's loving and kind owner Saundra. She made us feel like we were home from college being pampered by our endearing mother. Breakfast was wonderful and she went out of her way to make a delicious... More

My preference when traveling is a B&B over a hotel. I enjoy the extra space to relax, prefer the personal interaction with an innkeeper and breakfasts are usually a wonderful added bonus. My son and I stayed 2 nights at Fiddlehead for an accepted students visit at the University of Maine Orono. The inn is a lovely piece of old... More

We were in Bangor for one night for the American Folk Festival and stayed at the Fiddlehead Inn. What an absolutely lovely experience! The room was cozy and comfortable and everything was decorated with great taste and care. The decor of the whole house is so charming. It was a pleasure just to be there. We arrived a little early...

The place is lovely, and so is the innkeeper. The house was really beautiful and cozy, and I absolutely LOVED the food (we had fruit juice, fresh coffee, gluten free banana bread, and broccoli quiche). It was a very short walk from Downtown Bangor, so the location's great too. It was a bit on the pricey side, but because the... More
