James Place is set in a convenient location for a shopping visit to the designer outlet and the famous LL Bean as its just around the corner.Restaurants are also close by and cater for every pocket! The owners of James Place are warm and friendly and cannot please you enough.Breakfast is superb with plenty to eat and choose from.The rooms are cosy and clean and has every amenity.Only one downfall that possibly would not bother most people but front doors are left unlocked all night and to make a drink you have to leave the building and walk down the side of the house where it is very dimly lit, to the back office where you can make a coffee.As we are from another country and do not know the area or neighbourhood like the owners do, a little more security would be of help to those who stay in their inn! I would however fully recommend James Place to anybody its an ideal place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room upstairs rather than ground floor as there is quite a lot of noise when people come in...

Thank you for the many kind words and for the constructive comments as well. We are glad you had a good stay here in Freeport. While we appreciate your concerns regarding the doors, each individual guest room has two locks, one of which is a dead bolt. Guests enjoy the ability to come and go freely without a key or passcode.

We are planning to add drink items to the front hallway, simply awaiting a quiet day at the inn to make it so. Thank you for affirming the desire for this.

We loved the James Place Inn! Set close to downtown Freeport, we walked just about everywhere and went to delicious restaurants that were recommended by our hosts. Of course, after the HUGE breakfast they served, we only had room for dinner. We loved the accommodations, the hosts and the area. We hope to go back!

My husband and I stayed in this lovely, welcoming B&B for two nights and really wished our stay could have been longer. The welcome, food and hints and tips for the area truly could not be beaten. We will be going back!

Thank you Robin and Tori for making our stay stellar! The food was amazing but the hospitality that both of you exude was what made it totally special. We know B&B's talk about the "at home feeling" you should expect, with you we actually found it. You have a great location only minutes walk to the main drag, a comfortable home, and you share your recipes, what can beat that.

Absolutely lovely B&B I found initially through Oyster.com and then also saw it got great reviews on Trip Advisor. It's literally a 5 minute walk to the center of town, LL Bean campus, stores, ect. The owners are lovely, and can offer great advice on where to go for a day trip- they directed us to the Orr and Bailey Islands which were spectacular! Comfy beds, private rooms, HUGE and amazing breakfast. Absolutely coming back the next chance we get!

Room Tip: The Pine room has both a fireplace and private deck-quite lovely.

I always look at Trip Advisor before choosing a place to stay and James Place Inn was #1 in Freeport-- and deservedly so. Its a beautiful home right off the main street . There are about 7 rooms and when we arrived I was shown all of them and loved having the choice. The innkeepers are so welcoming and gracious that it was a pleasure to stay there. Tori gave us a great recommendation for dinner which was Azure -- and fantastic. And she also recommended the Bow Street Market where we bought lobsters and they cooked them for us so we could take them home,

On my travels up to Booth Bay Harbor for a wedding, I made an unplanned stop in Freeport, Maine. I stopped at the info center and picked up B&B brochures. The James Place Inn seemed to have everything I was looking for. When I called, Tori said they had 2 rooms. I went right over and settled in. I was given a great recommendation for a place for dinner. Breakfast the next morning included REAL maple syrup...yummy!! Innkeepers as nice as can be. Hope to return sometime.
