I'm not normally an inn or B&B type person however this place may change that. First it is located right on the beach and the adirondack chairs on the front lawn are the perfect way to spend an evening watching the sunset or in the morning with a cup of coffee. It is apprx 15 minutes or so from Portland... More

What a lovely stay I had 8/10 &8/11. What a great place you have with such welcoming service! I love it. I have been coming to Higgins Beach for about 8 years now and always rented a house with my sister and brother in law, who have been coming for 25 years and your b&b is such a refreshing luxury!...

This was my first time at the Breakers. Could not ask for more. Clean room, room with a view, laundry, ice, even a clothes line. It felt like I was home. Love the atmosphere, porch, sitting room, coffee in the morning so you could leave and walk the beach before free breakfast. They even offer box lunches for a very... More

Simple, old school B and B. Unpretentious. Excellent location across road from the superb beach. Spectacular views from enclosed porch at sunrise. Delicious home style cooked breakfast. Great outdoor shower. Access to communal fridge just outside of our room. Stayed in a basement suite with direct outdoor access, easy in and out for bags, etc on arrival. Green establishment -...

Found the Breakers Inn by accident 32 years ago while honeymooning, loved it and stayed longer than we planned. Went back for our 25th and Stilled loved it. Now we bring our adult children and their spouses and friends, and they love it. You can't beat the view, the inn keeper, Rodney, Debbie and Carolyn they are always so pleasent... More

i will have to tell you the The Breakers, a bed and breakfast inn located on the Atlantic Ocean at Higgins Beach is the best bed and breakfast in Maine. Generations of the same families return there year after year. There are a variety of different rooms available to accommodate all different types of families and singles. The views from... More

We have stayed here several times over the last year as my parents are less than a ten minute walk away - at Piper Shores, a retirement community - and each time we feel like we are more and more a part of the Laughton family! Rodney and Debbie treat their guests as if they are friends and welcome you... More

We stayed here for three nights in July while we were on our honeymoon. Rodney and the rest of the staff are so friendly and really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home. We stayed in the Tower Room - the view was beautiful! The room looks right out onto the ocean. It was... More

We spent 2 wonderful nights here Sept 18th & 19th, 2013. If you don't mind the stairs get the tower room if you can. The views are completely worth it. Mini fridge in the room next to two rocking chairs. I asked for wine glasses and a bottle opener to enjoy a bottle of wine outside one afternoon while we... More
