We chose Talbot house in desperate search late at night for a place to stay. What a great blessing that they had room for us. We liked it so much that we decided to stay another day. Michael and Liz took us in as they would family. Our rooms were very beautiful and filled with antiques. There was even a...

I work regularly in Machias and was in need of a place to stay one night. I had shopped around for a regular hotel but was not having much luck finding any vacancies. This turned out to be lucky for me. I found the Talbot House and requested a reservation. As soon as I arrived there I could tell this...

This review has been on my to-do list since my boyfriend and I stayed at the Talbot House Inn nearly three months ago (Labor Day 2016). Our experience was too perfect. Not thanking Michael and Liz was not an option. We chose to visit Machias because it was north (like, way north), and provided the opportunity to see puffin and...

It always surprises me how a guest can walk through the door as a guest and leave as a friend. We enjoyed meeting both of you and hearing about your new "adventures". We were real excited when you got the house! We look forward to your return and we thank you for taking the time to write this awesome review!...

The Talbot House is a charming victorian home. We spent two nights at this B&B while exploring the area and visiting Campobello Island. The house is well furnished with a mix of antiques and memorabilia from the owner's travels abroad. Common areas are very welcoming, Many books, games, etc. are available to guests as well as snacks and homemade cookies....

Hidden in a nice but sleepy small town on the coast, we had a really nice 1 night stay on our way down the sunrise trail. Our hosts were welcoming and the rooms were clean and comfortable in an incredibly historic (and interesting) building. Would definitely reocmmend

We stayed at the Talbot House Inn on our way to Portland, Maine from Canada. Of the many bed and breakfasts we've stayed at over the years, I can confidently say that this place is one of the top ones.

A fantastic B&B. This old house has been meticulously restored to its original grandeur by owners Liz and Michael. They were gracious hosts and shared the history of the house with us.
