A simple B&B with great breakfasts and a beautiful location. We very much enjoyed reading by the lake, swimming and taking a canoe ride. We were visiting our sons who are working at a near by Boys Camp (Pine Island Camp) and found Pressey House to be comfortable and clean and the owner (Sharon) to be very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here while visiting our sons at a nearby camp. The location was ideal. It is right on the lake and there are all sorts of water toys: canoes, kayaks, tubes. We also enjoyed just sitting by the lake reading. Nice room and great homemade breakfast as well.

I feel so lucky to have found Pressey House. We were visiting New England Music Camp and wanted to find a place to stay on the same lake. My husband and I stayed in the loft; it was really roomy, had a kitchen, and a great view of the water. Sharon and Henry were warm and friendly. They have all... More

The Pressey House is a wonderful place! My son and I stayed here for a night before heading off to summer camp. It was so fun to be right on the lake, and we had a great time kayaking, fishing, and swimming off the dock. The room was lovely and comfortable, and the homemade breakfast in the morning was fantastic.... More

If you're looking for that "SPECIAL" relaxing or romantic get away, this is your place! Not like any B&B you've ever experienced. They treat you like family and the surroundings are absolutely gorgeous. Way more than I ever expected!! Treat yourself to an AMZING get away

What a lovely place. My husband and I stayed here for two nights and had the best time. We stayed in the granite suite, which was roomy and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious and personally-prepared. There was a fire in the fireplace in the evening, and cookies and tea in the afternoon. Sharon and Henry are warm and friendly. Highly recommend.

We stayed in the bottom rooms looking out on to the lake. Wonderful sunsets!! Gourmet breakfasts and a great night in front of the wood fireplace. Full kitchen including a dishwasher, stove, microwave, and refrigerator. Near both Thomas College and Colby College in Waterville. It would be ideal for visiting parents coming to see their student children. It has very... More

2 night stay which allowed for much needed peace and quiet - everything was perfect and made us feel comfortable and welcome - our room was the size of a comfortable apartment - morning breakfast overlooking the lake was absolutely fantastic. Sharon was awesome!

We stayed here for one night while visiting our son at Colby College. The minute we arrived I felt relaxed. The setting--right on a lake--is beautiful, and the innkeeper (Sharon) was so welcoming. Our room was cozy, casual, and comfortable. Breakfast was generous and delicious (fresh fruit, egg dish, amazing pumpkin scone). Best of all, there were canoes available and... More
