From the second we arrived until the second we reluctantly departed, we had the most amazing, relaxing and luxurious time at Bufflehead. The owner and her staff are thoughtful and kind, breakfast was phenomenal, wine and cheese in the living room was SO fun, and our hostess even made our dinner reservation for us! We left with so many happy... More

We have been coming to BCI since about 2001 and have never been disappointed. We have never come this late in the season. We were there from November 7-10, 2013. It was cold, but sunny and we had to do very different things than we usually do in the summer months and it was still just terrific. We were in... More

This was our first stop on our tour of New England and it set the bar very high for all the other b&b's we stayed in. From the moment we arrived, the welcome from Erin, the lovely house and our beautiful room, confirmed that we'd found a wonderful place! We stayed in the River Room, the smallest in the house,...

I wish it was Erin responding to your wonderful review as he was the person you had the most contact with. He is not available right now as the inn is closed for the season. We at Bufflehead Cove are always pleased when our guest enjoy their visit. Your review is a pleasure to read and I will certainly pass... More

My husband and I stayed at Bufflehead Cove for a long weekend in mid September. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. There is a sprawling lawn leading up to a beautiful older home which is situated directly on the river. There are hammocks, Adirondack chairs, a dock, and a gorgeous front porch with tables and chairs to sit outside and enjoy... More

Thank you so much for your review. Your description of the inn, our grounds and the breakfast were great. Again, thank you. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit.

What a lovely place. We stayed in 2 rooms. First, the Garden Room overlooking a meadow. Feels like a home, beautifully appointed fire place and interesting eclectic furnishings and books. Then we had the Balcony Room, even a larger suite, overlooking the river also tastefully appointed. Staff is very friendly and informative . Breakfasts are delicious! Secluded romantic location but... More

All I have to say is that this place is absolutely amazing! My wife and I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for our anniversary. The sights were extraordinary and the service we received was amazing. The morning breakfasts were also incredible. Thanks again!

My wife and I came for our honeymoon and loved being here. Mrs. Harriet Gott and her son Erin treated us with great friendliness and incredible professionalism. I believe Mr. Gott is the chef and his breakfasts were the best I have tasted. In all professions, excellence is spoken of, and sometimes strived towards. At this inn, it is attained.... More

Hello Alex, We all enjoyed meeting you and your pretty wife. It was a pleasure having you here at the inn. I am glad you liked both rooms, The Hideaway and the Balcony. They are different from each other but offer, I hope, the same feeling of spaciousness and warmth. I will pass on your complement to Rochelle. We are... More

We have been visiting Bufflehead Cove for 15 years, to say it is a special place would be an understatement! The Gott family makes you feel at home from the minute you arrive.

This B&B should be featured in a magazine like Coastal Living, it is perfect. Harriet and Erin understand hospitality and get it right. We stayed in the beautifully appointed River cottage.

I wish we were in Coastal Living, I love that magazine! Thank you for the complements. We try really hard to keep the property shipshape, but of course we see all the things that need fixing.
