My family and I just returned from a wonderful weekend at The Norumbega Inn. What a wonderful experience! We couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more. Our lovely guestrooms each had a fireplace as well as a gorgeous view with beds that were way too comfortable. Sue’s hospitality was outstanding and Chef’s cooking was beyond suberp. The three course breakfast options, including the yummiest of pastries and delightful parfaits, followed by the most scrumptious of entrees certainly started our days off to perfection. You’ll have to visit yourself though to see what delicious treats Chef Phil has in store for you. Three cheers and many thanks to Phil and Sue, our gracious hosts. We all look forward to returning in the future. Jeannie 💖💖💖

We absolutely love this place. The most charming bed-and-breakfast in Maine. We searched the coast for the perfect wedding destination 6 years ago, and we’re so happy we chose Norumbega. It’s fun to ditch our kids and go back to visit. The grounds and bocce court are impeccable. It’s a short drive/run to trails overlooking the bay. And the food is amazing. Thank you Sue and Phil!

We had the most lovely stay in the Kensington room. The Inn is stunning. The grounds are beautiful. Our room was clean and well appointed. The bed was amazing. Sue and Phil are attentive and friendly. Breakfasts are a gourmet experience. Everything from check in to check out was perfect. We will be back!

We were blown away by the food. Really top notch. The breakfasts were thoughtful and delicious - intricately preparer with fresh ingredients. Philip is a fantastic chef. Sue is a lovely host. Catered to all our needs and let us know there would be s’mores for kids at the bonfire. So Special.
