I have gone with a friend to The Breakers for more years than I can remember. It never fails to reduce my blood pressure. It is like stepping back in time to a simpler, slower way of life. The Inn is old, but very well maintained. Many of the rooms are up one or two flights of stairs (no elevator)... More

Wonderful staff, so helpful and friendly. The staff and the inn embody the warm and simple New England charm. If you are looking for a clean, nice, friendly place right by a beach, this is your place. My family stayed here for 2 nights, the kids couldn't be happier with being able to go to the beach at a whim.... More

I want to say thanks to Rodney and his staff for a very relaxing visit! We stayed at the Breakers Inn for a week and actually got married there with Rodney performing the service for us (Thank you)! This place has an awesome view and everyone is very courteous and worked hard to ensure our visit was great. Now that... More

My family and I have been staying in Liberty hall for more than 18 years. It's calm, peaceful, and the breakfast is spectacular. Staff is very kind, friendly, and helpful. Right on the beach, easy walk. 5 min drive into town. There are some great lunch spots in Freeport and Portland if it's a rainy day.

The Breakers Inn is a gem in the sand. Standing feet from the beach and demanding attention, the building is as breathtaking as the view from within. This place is a quiet, comfortable refuge from bustling city life in the off season and I can't see it being any less spectacular in the summer months. A delicious breakfast is served... More

In my book, this place sets the standard for all such inns. My family has stayed there off and on for the last dozen years, in spring, summer and fall. Owner/innkeeper Rodney Laughton does a marvelous job of keeping up the maintenance. Each year, seems like there are rooms, baths that have been redone, other amenities added, not to mention... More

I wondered whether this old Inn would look and feel outdated and a little shabby inside, but it wasn't either of those. Quite the contrary -- it has worn well thanks to the excellent upkeep performed by the Innkeepers, and it is very clean. The breakfast was hot, tasty and filling. The view of the surf - from the eating... More

The Breakers is a quaint country inn with beautiful ocean bay views. On a recent anniversary trip to Maine, my husband and I wanted to stay somewhere nice on the water and thanks to helpful reviews from TripAdvisor, we booked the Breakers Inn and loved it! Great location - right across the street from Higgins Beach, which has nice soft... More

Back at The Breakers and Higgins Beach! For many years we vacationed at this B&B. we are back and it feels like we never left. Wonderful location and Rodney has done an incredible job in keeping The Breakers just like I remembered. Rooms are clean and offer wonderful ocean views. Of course sitting on the lawn or on the porch... More

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
