“Awesome First Experience at a B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We were unique in that we stayed at this B&B for a whole week. By the end of the week, I felt like I was at home. The room (Yellow Room) was beautiful and the food was absolutely amazing. The hosts (Tori and Robin) were so welcoming and accommodating---they went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable: offering tips for making the most of our trip to Maine, helping us get tickets for an event, leaving a breakfast for us before our 5:00am flight---Tori even printed out our boarding passes so we would avoid the dreaded Southwest "C" group!

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience for my honeymoon. The only downside is that I know the next B&B I stay at will pale in comparison!

We really enjoyed our one-night stay at The James Place Inn. Our hosts were Robin and Tori and they were wonderful. We stayed in the Pine Room, which is quite lovely and has a real wood-burning fireplace and a private porch. It was unseasonably warm during our visit, so the fireplace got no use (in fact, we turned on the a/c), but we did enjoy the porch. The bathroom is pretty small in this room, but we still enjoyed the room quite a bit. Breakfast was quite tasty. It is served between 8:00 and 9:00. First there was fruit with yogurt if you wanted some. The hot entrées were Cinnamon Bread French Toast made from home baked bread and a Frittata with local vegetables. Both served with bacon and both were delicious. And cooked by Robin, I might add. Tori helped serve. Great place to stay. I hope we can return for a longer visit next time.

I have stayed at B&B's all around the US and the world. The biggest problem is the obvious burn out on the owner's face. Bored and tired... it isn't fun or romantic after awhile. Robin and Tori and this B&B are different. They both truly made us feel they LOVED what they did. They are great, open people who have a wonderful story to tell. The breakfasts are huge and delicious, the cookies they leave out are divine and he will send you the recipes upon request! The rooms are so romantic, with beautiful lace edged bedding, nice pillows and the two person jacuzzi in the room was wonderful. After just two nights we felt like Robin was a friend - he came out to the car when we were leaving to give me a few lemon bars (amazing) and a muffin for the road. Oh yeah, the location could not be better, on a quiet side street right in downtown Freeport. Cannot recommend James Place more....

Room Tip: Depends what you want. The ground floor room we had allowed us access to the kitchen and goodies via...

The experience was great! The room(rose) we stayed in was clean, well lit, furnished well, and had a great claw foot tub. The bed and linens were comfortable as well. The morning breakfast was simply amazing and fit for Food network. I ate too much and meant too!!! The property was well maintained and inviting. The Innkeepers Tori and Robin were welcoming,helpful, friendly and just overall very pleasant to be around. I suggest that the James Place Inn is the place to stay if your expectation is excellence. I know you will enjoy your stay as much as I did!

This beautiful, quiet location made for a great get away weekend for my wife and I. The accommodations were very comfortable and the breakfast was terrific! Our room was cozy and we loved the in-room two person Jacuzzi tub. Tori recommended a wonderful local restaurant for a special dinner and even made the reservations for us. Thanks to Tori and Robin our stay was very relaxing and pleasant. This is the place to stay if you are going to the Freeport/mid-coast area. We'll be back!

My wife and I spent a week at the James Place, and we are already looking forward to a return trip. Robin and Tori are great hosts and very knowledgable about New England. The breakfast is out of this world. Everything is made from scratch! Robin will also pack you a bag of goodies for your day trips. I can't say enough about our experiences here. This is our third visit, all where very enjoyable.

Innkeepers outstanding! Very attentive and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious. We tried to persuade the innkeepers to come home with us. We will definitely return. When you find a gem you know it.
