Very comfortable place to stay. Bed was great (pillows too thick for me - bring your own). We stayed in the 3rd floor queen. Great view of the harbor. Though the inn is off the main drag, the traffic noise was noticeable in the morning. There is a reading/library room AND a living room where guests can sit, read, socialize... More

We stayed at the Flying Cloud in early June and the weather was not the best. Karen saved our vacation with wonderful breakfasts and suggestions for rainy day activities and dining. We loved the large San Fransisco room with gas fireplace and views of the Damariscotta River.

We happened upon this beautiful B&B when looking for central places on the coast of Maine to stay, and it was a true gem. It's super close to Bristol, Pemaquid, Fort Popham, Camden and Rockland (all within 30 minutes, most under 15), which makes it a lovely home base to explore all that Maine's mid-coast has to offer. The surroundings... More

We were so happy to have found this b&b. We really needed a relaxing spot to regroup after a very hectic time. The Flying Cloud was perfect. It was walking distance to the town of Damariscotta with wonderful restaurants, shops and galleries. We went kayaking on the Damrariscotta River (also walking distance), ate lobster on the deck of a local... More

This is such a convenient location for spending time on the Maine coast. The veiw from our room (San Francisco) was beautiful with all the fall colors and the boats in the harbor. The gas sotve was the perfect romantic place to end the day. We were close to all kinds of things to see and do and not spend... More

In a first-time trip to Maine, I think we struck gold when we happened upon the Web site for Flying Cloud Bed and Breakfast and settled on the Newcastle-Damariscotta area of Maine's mid-coast region. Not wanting to be trapped in a touristy setting, we chose our location a bit at random, but this was a particularly lucky decision—Flying Cloud is... More

My husband & I spent 5 nights at the Flying Cloud. The breakfasts were great, room was lovely, fall foliage was gorgeous, etc. Karen & Dave are great innkeepers. Karen is an excellent cook and superb tour guide. She was great at making recommendations for day trips, places to eat while out, provided maps for guests, and so much more.... More

A warm and welcoming atmosphere. Lots of indoor and outdoor space. Lovely backyard garden and water views from the front. Full breakfast with thoughtful inquiry about food allergies and time of morning service. I felt as though Nancy and Dave were friends I'd known for a long time. I certainly will look forward to stoppping by for an overnight or... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable stay at the Flying Cloud. We aren't really B&B regulars (this was only our second B&B stay), but experiences like this one are converting us! We stayed in the San Francisco room, which is a spacious room with a private but detached bathroom. This wasn't a problem at all - we're glad... More
