My husband and I spent two nights at The Black Boar Inn last week. We loved our stay there. John and Dwain are wonderful, friendly hosts and were great sources of information about the area. Our room was lovely, the inn's location is perfect (everything is in walking distance but you don't feel impacted by the crowds) and the breakfasts... More

We really enjoyed our stay at The Black Boar Inn. We loved our accommodations and the food was absolutely awesome! Dwayne and John were very kind hosts and very accommodating with all your needs. The Inn is near downtown and the beach. Thank you, Dwayne and John, for taking such good care of us!

What a great place ! The BF and I spent his birthday weekend there Aug 9-11 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Inn was spotless, the room was spacious, and the private bathroom had a big walk-in shower. The breakfasts were tasty and varied each day. The location was terrific and it was nice to just park the car once... More

My husband and I had a relaxing stay at the Black Boar. The food was wonderful and breakfast on the patio was a real treat. The owners are kind and helpful and they make a great cup of coffee. We felt well taken care of fir our long weekend getaway.

The Black Boar Inn is still relatively young in terms of a B&B, but its history dates back to 1674. This LGBT-friendly colonial sits in the center of the bustling beach town of Ogunquit, Maine, and is just a 10 minute walk to one of the loveliest beaches in the United States. The hosts, John and Dwaine, are very cordial... More

The Black Boar Inn was a great choice for our weekend getaway. Located just North of the center of town, it was the perfect distance to both the beach and to all of the main restaurants. We did the walk on Marginal Way to Perkins Cove (though its a walk, definitely doable), and we also walked the beach in the... More

With the combination of great hosts, practical location and perfectly kept 17th century home, you cannot go wrong. We parked our vehicle and walked to all the attractions. Dwain makes a 5 star breakfast. Ogunquit is a place to discover with its marginal pathway and a wide selection of restaurants.

I hadn't been to Ogunquit in the summer in over 25 years and it's less than 90 minutes from home. We had an outstanding time and enjoyed every minute of it. Staying at this Inn was just wonderful. The Inn owners were friendly and welcoming. The property is immaculate, comfortable and is walking distance to everything. The breakfast was expected... More

We were lucky to be able to score a room for the night with little more than an hour's notice, and couldn't have been happier. Terrific location within easy walking distance of the beach, shops and restaurants, yet just far enough away from the busy buzz during high season. Room was quiet and comfortable, amenities spot on (loved the shower!),... More

John and Dwain were the perfect hosts for a friends' weekend in Ogunquit. The breakfasts were delicious and I felt so welcome. Thanks to them in a big way, my vacation was unforgettable. Beautiful rooms, exceptional hospitality made my stay there perfect. I highly recommend the Black Boar Inn and I will go back.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1674, with a major addition in 1720, The Black Boar Inn is the oldest structure in the Town of Ogunquit and one of the oldest wooden structures in the United States. BBI is located in the heart of the vibrant Village and only a three minute walk to one of the top rated beaches in America. The Inn offers six large bedrooms with queen beds and private en suite bathrooms with modern amenities. The Inn's common rooms (each with fireplace) offers guests with casual places to relax with family and friends.The Inn's history is truly remarkable. King James II of England (14 October 1633 - 16 September 1701) granted a plot of land in what is present day Ogunquit, Maine, to Alexandre Maxwell at some point in the mid-1600s. The Maxwell family built a home on this multi-acre plot in 1674 and lived there for about 100 years. In the mid-1700s, the home became the property of the Littlefield Family (another founding family of Wells/Ogunquit) through marriage to a Maxwell family member. Eddie Littlefield retained ownership until 1997. As the first two families cherished the property and remained ownership each for more than a century, The Black Boar Inn is now owned by only the third family in the structure's 340-year history. This Legacy Property is a truly authentic guest experience and remains a favorite choice of travellers from all parts of the world. ... more   less
