“Could not have asked for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2014

I was part of the group that had the entire Inn for a wedding weekend that also coincided with my birthday. Sally and Ben were wonderful to work with from booking to departure and beyond (I left some items in the room that they promptly mailed to my home). We all had planned to go out to dinner after receiving recommendations from Ben but two days before our arrival, I asked Sally if she would be willing to prepare a "happy hour" for the group as a surprise. Sally jumped right in and we worked together on a menu and I could not have asked for more. The menu was outstanding, presentation was beautiful and our friends were delighted with the delicious surprise. The evening was topped off by the fire in the backyard on a beautiful evening. It was a very memorable weekend in a home that has been lovingly restored by Sally and Ben.

As frequent B&B travelers we know that the quality and experience can vary widely. This place is 5 star all around! The owners Sally and Ben could not have been more warm and inviting and they worked continuously to make sure our stay was as special as it could be.

Nine of us took the entire Inn for a weekend wedding nearby and also to celebrate a special birthday. Ben and Sally cooked and served us a fabulous meal and then graciously lit a fire in their beautiful backyard so we could enjoy the stunning night sky. The rooms were spacious and very clean, the beds divine and the breakfasts were truly meals to remember.
Sally and Ben provided excellent ideas for outings in the area and we enjoyed all their suggestions!. Thank You for a fabulous weekend!

Oh, Elle. You've "blown us away" with your glowing review. Thank you very much. You don't know how innkeepers covet reviews like the one you just wrote. Yes, Sally and I really do put all we have into our guests. We genuinely want each and every guest to enjoy themselves, not only at Angel of the Berwicks, but also during their entire Maine experience. Southern Maine is just such a fun place to be that we really try to help each guest get the most out of their time in our wonderful state. Your jovial crew was a genuine delight.

This was my first time staying at a B&B and I have to say what an experience. The house was grand from the outside when we pulled up but the inside was just beautiful. I loved the vintage décor and the stairs to the rooms where exquisite. The breakfast were serve around 8:30 every morning which got us up early so we could start our day of sightseeing. I enjoyed the interaction with the other guests around the breakfast table and the breakfasts well lets just say WOW! they were fantastic. Last be not least the owners were great they were friendly and very willing to help with any questions and also very accommodating, The only thing that I had wished they would have done was sit down and talk with us during breakfast. Oh lets not forget Bella she was just happy to see anyone.
I would definitely go back again and recommend it to anyone.

It is gratifying to read the words "Wow" and "Great" in the same review. It's always rewarding to watch our various guests arrive as strangers, but leave as friends both, with Sally and me, and with their fellow guests. Even our standard poodle--Belle-- got a "shout out" in this review. Thank you, very much Annette, for taking the time to write such kind words.

This is a lovely old house, beautifully furnished. Bathroom was very modern and spotless. Guest room was nice and bed was comfortable. Innkeepers are pleasant and helpful.

Room for improvement: breakfast was big on presentation but quality was uneven, coffee was weak. Also it is served at a fixed time, but then you wait a long time for the food. Also there is no choice of foods given.

Unfortunately this house is located at a very busy intersection and the traffic noise is loud all night long. They have AC so you can shut the windows but if you like fresh air you had better bring your earplugs. Also there is essentially nothing in N Berwick, but the location is good for day trips to the coast.

It's wonderful to get so many compliments in the first paragraph of a review. We're thankful to this reviewer for her stay and her kind words about our inn. A quick glance through the many other reviews of our inn makes it clear that this reviewer is in a lonely minority when it comes to her opinion on our breakfasts. The overwhelming consensus of all the reviewers is that breakfasts at Angel of the Berwicks are altogether enjoyable. We're grateful to the reviewer for pointing out that our location is "good for day trips to the coast." Indeed, we look forward to hosting you again, sometime soon.

Just fair enough away from the craziness of downtown Ogunquit, we had a very nice stay at the Angel. Ben is a great host, along with Sally, who whipped up a super breakfast. Rooms were nicely kept, clean and cool in the hot summer, even on the 3rd floor. Worth the trip. See you again guys, your ticket friend!

First time at Angel of Berwicks and it was EXCELLENT....We were so pleasantly surprised when we pulled up out front at how lovely the home was!! We were warmly greeted by Sally and Ben and were given a tour of some of the rooms....what a fantastic job of decorating and staying very true to the time period when the home was built. My wife and I have done renovations like this before, so we can really appreciate the love and dedication that was poured into this B&B by Sally and Ben. As for breakfast...DONT MISS IT! We stayed 4 days and each morning the breakfast was special, even the settings at the table were different every day! My wife had me take pix of our bfast each morning as it was truly special....Bfast was at 8:30 and it was easy to see why when you see the effort that Sally put into making something different and special every morning! The company around the table held many interesting and fun conversations....part of a great experience! Now as for our room....The first and foremost thing I look for is "CLEAN"....and it certainly was!! Our bathroom was spotless also. The room decorating was warm and inviting and very tastefully done....
We were in town for a wedding and our family and friends were quite jealous when I showed them where we were staying as compared to the hotels they were staying at...
Overall, I cant say enough wonderful things about the Angel.....We would recommend it in a heartbeat if you are coming to visit the area or looking for a romantic getaway...Sally and Ben were delightful hosts and I say this as someone who has frequented many B&B's and I would put this one at the top! WE DEFINATELY WILL RETURN!

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor and it was lovely.... When we toured- All the rooms looked very nice!

My 'visit' was farther back then the Sept 2013 stated. We inquired for a part of our family to stay a portion of a weekend over a holiday weekend and were told that they would not accept the reservation because they COULD get someone that would want to stay the whole weekend. To top it off she (who ever we spoke with, no name was given over the phone) rude, short and seemed like this was a complete inconvenience in the off season in this area. I have heard from others who have stayed for business at The Berwicks that it wasn't much better, but at least it was close to the business they had in town. Just a warning.

After reading this review several times, it is unclear whether the reviewer ever actually stayed at Angel of the Berwicks. If she did stay at our B&B, she clearly liked it well enough to call again for a reservation for her family member. I'm sorry the reviewer was disappointed that her family member could not reserve a one-night stay on a holiday weekend. However, almost every smaller bed & breakfast has a two-night minimum stay requirement on weekends--especially on holiday weekends. The other Trip Advisor reviews, from guests who actually stayed at our B&B, give a more accurate picture of the quality of our service.
