My girlfriend and I stayed this past weekend, and we both thought it was wonderful. The amazing staircase is the first thing you notice when you enter, as well as the interior decorations. It is apparent there is a lot of history within the Inn. The staff are all very friendly and helpful with dinner recommendations and directions. Our room... More

I am so glad you noticed the historic beauty of our house. I work diligently to keep the house in tip top shape, but the bones of this building are indeed truly impressive. The flying stair case is fabulous as are the the original crystal doors and windows. Built in 1860, it is amazing how many original features are still... More

We actually took our friends here for their Christmas gift and they loved it as much as we do. Everyone is always helpful and pleasant. The breakfast is always delicious. Walter and Judy have completed fabulous renovations to several roowroms and cottages. If you are looking for the perfect get away you will never go wrong with this inn. Downtown... More

From the first phone conversation with "Duke", to the greeting from Judi, through the chats with Walt, the whole sensation was 'comfortable warmth'. (not to mention the delightful fireplace/heater in cottage 2.) The breakfasts were filling and delicious, and a highlight! The cottage was spacious and convenient, and the microwave, fridge, and coffee/tea -making machine made for flexibility. The location... More

Had an opportunity to spend an overnight at the Maine Stay. Such a delightful Maine Bed and Breakfast - gorgeous rooms, wonderful breakfast and gracious host and hostess. We had a beautiful room on the first floor with it's own gas fireplace and private patio - will definitely come back when the snow has melted to enjoy the patio !... More

This was our first time to the inn, and we plan to go back. We stayed in the main inn and did a package deal that included rose petals, sparkling cider, cheese and fruit in the room upon arrival. The innkeepers were helpful in recommending local places to eat. The inn is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. I... More

My daughter has celiac disease so we know how to keep our gluten free guests safe, with advance notice. When I plan the menus for the week I study the list of dietary issues and plan accordingly. Short notice can be a problem, so I thank this guest for noticing our kitchen abilities and for letting our future guests know... More

We have stayed at the Maine Stay in the spring, summer and most recently in the cold and snowy winter. We are always greeted with a warm and gracious welcome to the inn. Our cottage was very clean and extremely comfortable. Upon entering it was clear that Judi and Walter wanted their guests to have a warm respite from the... More

We just came back from a 2 night trip up to Kennebunkport for our anniversary. I am thrilled we decided on the Maine Stay Inn. We stayed in a cottage and it was so adorable and extremely comfortable. The fire place was amazing especially with all of this cold weather we have been having. The Inn Keepers couldn't have been... More

A happy repeat guest is a special treat. It is amazing how little things, like a heated floor can make a difference. Pampering with a delivered breakfast is indeed our specialty and we are so glad you enjoyed it. See you again. Thanks for your kind words. Judi More

My Fiance and I wanted a getaway that wasn't too far away yet far enough away to forget about home stuff. The Maine Stay was PERFECT! Judy and Walter were extremely nice and conscientious and so easy to talk to. The place is tastefully decorated and very clean. The breakfasts were NOT ordinary..they were unique, delicious with a perfect quantity.... More
