“Truely a home away from home...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This was the first time my husband and I stayed at a B&B. We absolutely loved it!!! Monica and Rock were very friendly and so helpful in where to go and what to do. Freeport is a lovely place, and the Lobster Boat in Portland was the most amazing experience. We had the most relaxing, fun weekend and didn't want to leave. Rock made the most delicious breakfasts, and made an oatmeal lover out of me. We can not wait to go back to Maine and when we do, no questions asked, we will be staying at the White Cedar Inn.

Thank you Monica and Rock, you have a beautiful Bed & Breakfast.

Thanks for the wonderful comments. Glad we made an oatmeal lover out of you! (The recipe is on our blog.) Next time you're here you'll have to try a windjammer or the mail boat.

Hope you continue to try B&B's wherever you travel.

The rooms were clean and neat and the fresh made breakfast by the owner was quite nice. This is a place where a family or couple could stay but some of the rooms have a bathroom that they have to share in the hallway. It is within easy walking distance of downtown stores and restaurants which makes it quite nice and there is ample parking.

Thank you for your review Peter! Glad you both enjoyed your stay.

As a side note, no rooms share a bathroom. All guest rooms have their own bathroom.

My boyfriend and I had a great time at the White Cedar Inn. We stayed in the Casco Bay Room. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was perfect for us. Though many might complain that it didn't have a TV, it was quite nice to not have that distraction. We had to check out rather early in the morning because I was running in a half marathon in Portland, but that was not a problem at all. I can't wait to go back. I highly recommend White Cedar Inn for its charm and warm home-away-from-home feel!!

Room Tip: Casco Bay room had a queen and a twin, an AC, bathroom with shower, rocking chair. Right next to th...

Very cute b&b...but would not go back. Very dated decor, but not in a good vintage way. Sadly, reminded me of my grandmas house. I hated the small bathroom; shower was sooooooo tiny. I wish there was a bath tub.

And no tv? Ahhhhhh!
Owners were very nice, didn't talk to us much. More for an older crowd.

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay.

You are correct that not all rooms have TV's or bathtubs; the room amenities are listed on our website on each room page. We sent a survey to prior guests and TV's were not high on their list of needed amenities so we didn't add them to any additional rooms.

Our focus is to give our guests relaxation space. We are always here to help when asked. It seems we did not give you enough attention and I do apologize that you felt slighted.

All the B&B's in Freeport are different and we truly hope you will find another one that meets your needs on your next trip!

Here it is the middle of February and the weekend is almost 70 degrees in the Carolina's . Hubby gave me a romantic wintery trip for Christmas. So, we ran to the airport after work headed for VT and ME. We visited with some friends then headed to Freeport. It was a whole 18 degrees. Snow was blowing in circles as we drove into town. There it was, our home for the next 3 days. We were warmly greeted at the back door. Just as we got to the door it opened right up. Monica welcomes us to their beautiful inn, checked us in and took us to our room. It was good to be inside. They had coffee, tea and cookies every night for the guest. Rock was up early in the morning getting the coffee going. Breakfast was fresh fruit, followed by wonderful omelets one day and homemade blueberry pancakes the next. We made new friends! We shopped LLBean and other local stores. They always checked in with us to see if they could help us with anything. They gave us restaurant info and both shared great stories of the inn with us. So, if you are having a warm winter and need a few snowy white days in your life, go visit Monica and Rock at The White Cedar Inn. You will be glad that you did...I know that we will be back for sure! Thanks guys from our NC friends.

Room Tip: Check out all the rooms, they have several different accommodations.

Thank you so much for your kind words! It certainly was a Maine winter experience you had. Glad you got home safe and sound. We had more snow this weekend so it's still snowshoe season here. Hope you can make it back this way again sometime.

We stayed here again last June and will continue to visit each time we are in Maine, at least for as long as Monica and Rock are running the inn. As ever, they are constantly upgrading the accommodation and improving the guest experience. I've posted pictures of the lounge area since that's been refurb'd since our last visit. For room pictures, pls see my previous reviews.

Breakfasts are fantastic, rooms and beds super-comfortable and clean. The inn is close to everything you need and the hosts are passionate and knowledgeable about their town and the area. See Monica's blog for lots of extra information on things to do and see.

Thank you J&B! Love the pix you took of the lounge. We are doing more improving this year as well- new faucets for the sinks, new colors for some of the rooms, new recipes for breakfast.

Hope we see you again soon!

Thanks again for the lovely comments.

So, about 10 years ago my wife and I switched to staying at B&B's - whenever we can. At the last minute, we decided to head north (yes, my wife also thought I was crazy - we live in Pennsylvania). I picked this one because of it's rating and it's availability. Talk about lucking out. Place was in immaculate condition - room was clean, heater worked perfectly, food was fantastic (Rock is an excellent chef), and Monica is an excellent host. Place was in a perfect location. Would I stay here again? Absolutely - we ever head back, I'm not even thinking of staying anywhere else.....

Room Tip: We stayed in Capt. Dan - but spoke with others there. Not sure there is a bad choice - but if it...

Thank you for your wonderful comments! We're happy you really enjoyed your stay after the long drive from PA.

Capt Dan's room is definitely a guest favorite.

We hope you get back here again to try some of Rock's new recipes coming up this year!

Just to clarify- 6 of our 7 rooms have en suite (in the room) bathrooms. Only one room (Lillian) has its own dedicated bathroom across the hallway from the room.
