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I wondered whether this old Inn would look and feel outdated and a little shabby inside, but it wasn't either of those.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

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

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 -...
