Best views of the morning sun & the waves coming onto shore from the ocean all from looking out of my room windows on the second floor & on the beach. Clean, comfortable, inviting & most of all relaxing. Early morning walks on the beach listening to the surf, the birds & the wind. Watching the ripples in the small... More

The Breakers Inn is in a perfect location right next to the seafront at Higgis breach. The sunrise we saw from our specious and comfortable room was spectacular. Great breakfast. Fabulous accommodation!

The Breakers Inn is the kind of place often described as 'a throwback to a better time' - but would stand out in any era. Owner Rodney Laughton - whose family have run it for decades - is an innkeeper extraordinaire - engaged, efficient, always attentive to the wishes and needs of his clientele, many of who have come for...

A remarkable place that balances the vibe of a traditional New England inn with wifi and every modern convenience. It is simply and cosily appointed. The breakfast is absolutely astonishing - home made muffins and perfect porridge emerge from the most spotless kitchen you'll ever see (the whole place is spotless!). The lunchtime lobster rolls are the best you'll ever... More

Two weeks ago I was at Claridges in London. Today, at The Breakers. One is all obsequious service and gilding. The other is plain and friendly. Each is exceptional of its type. I'll take The Breakers any day. This is not really a bed and breakfast. It's not someone's house masquerading as an Inn. You don't have to eat with... More

As our first bed and breakfast experience The Breakers Inn has set the bar high! Check in was quick and easy which allowed us ample time to lounge on the beach before heading into town for dinner. The beach is mere steps away from the front door and the outdoor shower was perfect for rinsing off before coming back inside.... More

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.
