Ours was a lovely albeit too short of a visit. We found West End Inn all an inn should be; clean, comfortable, beautiful, tasty and welcoming. We definitely will return and this time for a much longer stay.

Price of an overnight stay?
Howdy, Linda, We stayed at the West End Inn a few months ago and, as I recall, the rates were in line with most of the other B&B's we checked out. On the other hand, the experience is worth every cent. Victoria is a great host, stimulating conversation (if you wish to chat), excellent breakfasts, cool accommodations, and wonderful location. We have talked seriously of adding another Maine vacation to our "bucket list" just so we could visit the West End Inn again!

how can i book a car for pick up from airport
Typically, there are always cabs available at baggage claim when you arrive. There is an information booth as well. The person working the booth will assist if for some reason there are no taxis. In addition, we can provide you with a number for a taxi service we like to recommend and you may set up a pick up with them if you wish.
