Last Friday, July 25 my wife and I drove to Skowhegan to attend the Bread fair on Saturday. We chose Helen's B&B because of the close proximity to the Fair Grounds. WE were met by Charlene on arrival and as we were early we left the car and walked a half block to the Heritage House for lunch (see separate... More

We were in Skowhegan for a wedding and had limited accommodation choices in this area so were we not expecting much. As it turns out we were pleasantly surprised by Helen's Bed & Breakfast. This older home has a bathroom for each bedroom. It is amazingly clean! As the weather was beautiful and we were traveling with a group, we... More

Great locaton for a stopover while traveling from the Maine coast up to Canada. Its the only B&B on the north/south scenic highway. However the house needs some TLC. The first thing that I saw was the carpet needs replaced. The bath turned hot to cold to hot rapidly. Bed was comfortable & there was a TV. Innkeeper seemed put... More
