This B&B was such a pleasant surprise. I needed a place to stay during switch over weekend at my daughter's summer camp. The room was clean, attractive and spacious. We had our own bathroom. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was superb! My only feedback would be that I wish there was NO smoking allowed anywhere on... More

Thank you for your kind review. I apologize for the delay in responding to your comment regarding permitting guests to smoke outdoors on the property. While we do allow guests to smoke outside very few do and we are sorry that you felt inconvenienced by one of our guests. We do have several locations with seating overlooking the river as... More

Stayed in the Garden Room at the Black Lantern Inn for 10 days in July. Hear that? Ten days. I was in town for a grad school residency, and the inn turned out to the perfect home away from home. Tom and Judy are warm, sincere, incredibly friendly innkeepers who are happy to find you the right map or the... More

We stayed one restful,comfortable, and relaxing night at the Black Lantern recently. The room was clean, the bed was great, and hosts were welcoming. Breakfast was filling and yummy! We've stayed at B&B's all over the U.S. and Canada and this ranks among the best! Thanks Tom & Judy for a great stay! Wish we could have stayed longer.

A great alternative to cookie cutter hotels in the area as well as the more expensive B&Bs on Brunswick's side of the river. While checking out Bowdoin College, my daughter and I shared the Androscoggin Room with a queen and pull out twin sofa. There was plenty of room to move around, the bathroom was sparkling clean and good-sized, and... More

The Black Lantern was exactly what we were looking for - clean, comfortable, restful, and a great location. There is a walking trail that takes you over the nearby river, and sidewalks you can use to walk into town and Bowdoin College within 15 minutes. Tom and Judy were the perfect hosts, ready with recommendations of great restaurants, and wonderful... More

I am a vegan and Judy went out of her way to make sure I had a lovely breakfast. The room was clean and cozy and we felt very comfortable. We look forward to staying here again!

We flew in from the west coast and were exhausted. Tom was very accommodating, allowing us to check in early to nap. We felt very comfortable and at home. This B&B is very clean and homey and the the breakfast was delicious.

We had the pleasure of meeting Tom and Judy while staying in their charming B&B. Very nice home with great hospitality and breakfast! Especially enjoyed the breakfast discussion with our fellow guests, one of who was a semi-professional photographer who travels to Maine regularly and always stays at the Black Lantern. Don't know if we'll be back in the area... More
