First time at the Inn and we just loved it, the best. The suite was clean, roomy, and cozy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. This was a gift from our children and we will return. Loved being able to walk downtown.

This couple stayed in our first floor suite, which is my most favorite room on the property. Even though the suite is on the first floor it is a very quiet unit and it is filled with original stained stained glass and several original light fixtures. I am so glad these guests were happy with their stay and that they... More

The owners of this family owned establishment are both kind and helpful. They allowed us to check in early, sat down with us and gave us a map and suggestions on how to spend our trip, and made accommodations for our room at our request. The room was beautiful, romantic, and very clean! Loved the cottage, and I will never... More

We stayed in a cottage and it was great - very nicely decorated and very romantic. The fireplace gave the room nice ambiance; the cottage was extremely cozy. We were served breakfast in our room - the food was delicious! The Inn is only a few blocks from town and it was great to walk through town and not have... More

We have been coming to the Maine Stay Inn for many years now and we have never been disappointed. We have stayed upstairs inside the main building and also in cottages #3 and recently cottage #7. All the rooms offer something unique and special. We enjoy the Maine Stay (as opposed to other local inns) because of the cottage option.... More

We had a wonderful weekend at The Maine Stay Inn! Innkeepers Judi & Walter were wonderful & witty. The room was spotless. The breakfasts were divine! A gift to us by our children- what a great find. We look forward to revisiting!

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
