Victorian by the sea is one of those places you don’t want anyone to know about because you want to keep it your own little secret getaway. A historic home, this extremely charming B&B is located in Lincolnville, a small town on the mid-coast of beautiful Maine. I and my husband stayed here for 2 nights in April 2017 and...

Lovely place, delightful rooms and charming innkeeper, Caroline, who served gourmet breakfasts! She also recommended great places to dine in Camden, though the "season " hadn't started yesterday! Will definitely come back someday!

Thank you for your kind words. Was such a pleasure to have you stay with us. Hope to see you again, perhaps for the lush green days of summer ( cool ocean breezes and cold lemonade on the wrap around porch) or maybe to enjoy the view from Mt. Battie during our breath-taking Fall season..

Our hostess, Caroline, was always on hand to help us find wonderful pubs and eateries in the area. The next day after we arrived, I got up early to go to her breakfast room to sip tea and look at some of the historic illustrated books she had collected about the area. It was snowing ever so lightly and she...

This is one of those places you hoped you could keep for yourself, but seems like the words out and thought I'd finally review VBTS even though I've been going for a few years now. Yes, the breakfast is special, and yes the rooms are splendid, although technically I've only stayed in the large suite. As Camden gets busier, it's...

We stayed here 15 years ago with our young daughters and under a different innkeeper. The property is lovely, a yard and porch overlooking Penobscot bay. Caroline, the new innkeeper, is a sweetheart. She'd lived in Switzerland for over 20 years and served a delightful breakfast of a combination of Maine blueberry pancakes and local apple cider with muesli and...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. Apologies that I'm only now responding. I'm a newbie to social media, but I'm finally "on board". Last October, during your visit - the foliage was especially beautiful...and so warm. Now, however - a spring green has fallen over the fields and a beautiful wonderland of daffodils, crocuses,...

My husband and I spent our first night here on the way to Bar Harbor. The house and the gardens are just lovely and Caroline, the Innkeeper, was very accommodating. She also cooks a delicious breakfast. Our room was on the first floor and had very comfortable twin beds and a fireplace. We fell asleep with a fake log burning-...

We loved staying here! The company was wonderful, the rooms all unique and the food was very yummy. The house is well maintained with a history of love and laughter- this directly translated to the quality of our stay. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay and clear the cobwebs left by the...

Charming, historical home in a gorgeous and peaceful location, minutes away from all the activity in Camden. We stayed in the Bay room (#3) with a good view of the water. In fact, our first morning we took our cup of coffee and strolled down to the rocky beach. Breakfast was as beautiful in presentation as it was delicious and...
