We were at the Elmere for a couples weekend away. We had plans for the Ogunquit theater and reservations to some fabulous local eateries. Unbeknownst to me, I had booked the suite which included a Jacuzzi! This was such a fabulous surprise. When we arrived we were greeted by the owners, who are so lovely and inviting! They gave us pointers on local beaches that were not crowded with parking that was easy and ample. They also greeted us every morning with a delicious breakfast that was homemade and included some really fun banter! I would highly recommend staying at this inn opposed to staying in downtown ogunquit because it’s easy to park easy to get to and the people are so nice! Highly highly highly recommend!
We had a really great stay. Michael and Bill were really awesome hosts. Breakfast is incredible. Location is good as it is not far from Ogunquit, Kennebunkport, Old Orchard, even Portland is a one-hour drive.
We stayed on the second floor, the room had a queen size bed, refrigerator, and private bath. Decor was tasteful and up to date. Hosts Michael and Bill were extremely nice and very helpful with local restaurants and things to do. Breakfast was AMAZING! We had eggs benedict the first morning, with coffee, juice, fruit and homemade blueberry cake and a cinnamon coffee cake. Way too much food (but in a good way!!). The second day was a fruited french toast with blueberries and strawberries on top. SO GOOD!! Plenty of space outside to sit and read under the shade trees. Location is between Wells and Ogunquit, right off Hwy 1. Very quiet considering being so close to the road. This was our favorite place to stay during our trip along the coast and we will have fond memories! We hope to return some day!…
We stayed for our honeymoon, and owners, Michael and Bill, greeted us as soon as we walked in the door with welcoming smiles! Our room was just beautiful with all amenities for our stay! It is so tastefully decorated throughout the B & B and exceptionally clean. The gardens are beautiful with lawn chairs for picnic of lounging. There is a gas firepit to light in the evening, as well! The breakfasts are plentiful and absolutely delicious with homemade cuisine including fruit, coffee cakes, and main dish being eggs benedict (AMAZING!) to French Toast with fruit and more! I would give The Elmere a 6 if I could! Perfectly located in the center of all attractions, shopping, and activities. Bill and Michael very helpful to recommend.
My wife and I had been looking for a place to stay in Wells for a while and have tried many different locations and B&B's as we are up to visit my parents a few times a year. Michael and Bill are such gracious hosts and made sure we feel right at home and took care of any needs or requests we had. The rooms are well sized with comfortable beds, and even though the property is on Route 1, it is set back enough and fenced to feel private. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and well kept, and there is more than adequate parking. We will definitely be staying with Bill and Michael the next time we head to Maine. Couldn't have been happier or asked for more. Highly recommended!
Amazing and initiate bed and breakfast, could not have been happier with our experience. Prime location, close to restaurants and the waterfront. Rooms were pristine, spacious, and tasteful. And the rest of the shared common space was elegantly decorated. Staff was beyond amazing and accommodating. So friendly. Highly recommend!
My husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary in Maine and we had the loveliest of stays. Michael and Bill made us feel right at home. Each room of the B&B is wonderfully decorated, sweet wildflowers on each table at breakfast, and beautiful grounds with gardens and seating areas. Would definitely stay again! On top of their wonderful hospitality, Michael and Bill worked very hard on ensuring I had a safe and allergy free breakfast. I have several allergies and they prepared a delicious dish that was gluten and dairy free. This was the first time in my life where I had french toast, it was amazing! My husband and I enjoyed every bite of our thoughtfully prepared breakfast. Highly recommend!
We love Elmere House and Michael and Bill are just fabulous hosts! The rooms are absolutely stunning with comfortable beds and a serene and relaxing atmosphere and the breakfasts are crazy delicious !
We had a truly wonderful 2- night experience at The Elmere. The inn was immaculate and very tastefully decorated. Michael and Bill were amazing hosts. They were both beyond friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed talking with them. Bill’s 3-course breakfasts were incredibly good. We liked the location very much and could easily ride our bikes through nearby neighborhoods. We had a wonderful experience in Wells and give The Elmere our highest rating.
We booked 2 nights in May for our wedding anniversary weekend, based on the positive reviews, and our stay exceeded our expectations. Michael and Bill were the quintessential hosts, genuinely warm, welcoming, and helpful from the moment of our arrival to the time of our (reluctant) departure. The rooms and the rest of the property were clean, updated, nicely decorated and well-maintained. Bill prepared delicious three course breakfasts tailored to our liking, and I got a mimosa to accompany mine on Mother's Day! I highly recommend this lovely B&B, we will definitely be back!
