I was traveling alone and couldn't have asked for nicer hosts, Patty & Mike. They looked out for me and gave me the best tips for enjoying Sanford. The Higgins House is spotless and my room was ultra lovely (bed so comfortable), bathroom huge and it was light and cheery. Not only do I recommend the Higgins House and the... More

My wife and I stayed here while celebrating our anniversary. The house is beautiful, surpassed only by the cordial, friendly and engaging owner, Ms. Patty Ribera. We will be going back to enjoy the B&B AND to enjoy the conversation with Patti. We missed her husband, Mike, but we heard all about him and know we will enjoy meeting him... More

Pat and Mike were just wonderful, very friendly and warm people. The house is so beautiful and comfortable and the garden is gorgeous. We will be making this one of our special places! Sanford is such a great little town with lots of great local places to visit.

We had a 7am flight and chose Higgins House for the night before. Patti greeted us with a glass of wine and a little history of the house. Very cool and authentic. Comfy bed and bathroom, walking distance to many restaurants in historic Sanford. Patti packed a nice breakfast for us with homemade muffins, fruit, juice and chocolate for the... More

I've never been to Sanford but decided to try it after reading the reviews for the Higgins House. I was pleasantly surprised. The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. The place is beautiful, well decorated and very clean. The breakfast was delicious! Sanford downtown has a quaint, artsy feel.

I was in Sanford for the week for work. The Higgins House was only down the street from were I was working. My husband found this wonderful Victorian Home on line for me. I stayed in the Cedar room which was wonderful. The whole house was like stepping back in time. My host Patty was a delight to spend time... More

I stayed for one night while visiting my family in Sanford. The owners made me feel like family. I stayed in the downstairs room near the kitchen. The bed was very comfortable and enjoyed staying in a room with all the old fashioned furniture. I had my own key to the room so I felt that myself and my things... More

Booked a room at the Higgins House for one night to attend a special dinner. Our hosts Patty and Mike were wonderful, our room on the first floor was lovely and I wish we could have stayed longer! Breakfast the next morning was delicious! Lots of fresh fruits and cheese blintzes! The front porch has these lovely rockers that beckon... More

Stayed here for a single night on March 12, 2016. Beautiful Victorian home with nicely landscaped back yard garden and a very pleasant owner / Innkeeper, with whom I had enjoyable extended conversation over a truly delicious full breakfast. Also enjoyed walking around the nearby, pleasant downtown area, with some great old buildings and a very nice nearby Riverwalk. A... More

There is so much to love about the Higgins House. The home itself is lovely, filled with antiques and very comfortable. I stayed in the 2nd floor Wicker Room, which was bright and airy. Next door was a TV room with a door to a balcony and had a refrigerator with snacks. Patty and Mike are welcoming and generous. I... More
