I am woefully late in writing this review, but had to let everyone know this B&B is the BEST!!! My husband and I stayed here last summer. We had booked for a few days and loved it so much that we returned after driving north over night. Tori and Robin are the ultimate hosts. My husband was dealing with the aftermath of a brain injury and stroke and they were so kind! Their breakfasts are FABULOUS, but when he was cantankerous they fixed him a simple breakfast of his choice. Their sweet daughter Elyse made him her special scrambled eggs, which he loved. Robin helped me map out driving trips that hubby would enjoy and encouraged me to take advantage of the great adventure tours at LL Bean while hubby rested at the inn. I can't say enough about this wonderful experience. Spotless, comfortable rooms; unbelievable , delicious breakfasts; kind, wonderfully helpful, knowledgeable hosts...SIMPLY THE BEST!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. We hope it brought back all of the wonderful memories you had of your vacation here and throughout Maine. We remember you fondly and the mornings dining on the deck. You and your husband were truly delightful and just likes what he likes (don't we all)! Perhaps we will have the pleasure of your company again one day. Until then, our best wishes for continued good health.

It was our recent pleasure to spend a wonderfully relaxing weekend at the James Place Inn Bed and Breakfast in Freeport, Maine. We were greeted warmly by Robin who immediately made us feel welcome and comfortable. We later had the opportunity to chat with Tori over a very tasty breakfast. Robin's homemade treats were delicious as well. Tori and Robin were incredible hosts in every way. They felt like good friends and their personalities were enjoyable. Our room was a treat. We loved the hot tub at the end of our two nights. It was a lovely way to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day. The location was perfect for exploring the Freeport area. To sum it all up...A TRULY Wonderful place to stay with two exceptional hosts! We look forward to returning.

Room Tip: all rooms are exceptional

We have stayed at the James Place Inn for years now as we attend Sparkle Weekend in Freeport. It is by far the best B&B in Freeport. The breakfast, and the afternoon treats, are delicious. Each year we arrive, it is like catching up with old friends when we see Tori and Robin. At the close of our weekend, we make reservations for the next year. (We even stay in the same room). We wouldn't consider staying any where else.

Sparkle weekend is so much fun for us as well! We have a house full of guests that we see each year. It is great fun to catch up with everyone and also fun to see the guests greet each other as you all have gotten to know each other over the years. It is so fun in the morning to hear everyone chatting in the dining room. We so look forward to our visits with you. THank you for the kind words and taking the time to write this. We'll see you in December!

The James Place Inn is THE place to stay in the Freeport area! Tori and Robin are amazing hosts and cook a breakfast you will be longing for. This little weekend getaway was a surprise vacation for my now fiancee (proposed over the weekend). Tori and Robin were excellent with helping me with restaurant reservations and ideas/knowledge of the area.

Tori and Robin are very friendly and a wealth of information. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Robin and instantly we were treated like old friends. During both of our amazing breakfasts, our plates/glasses were always full. BEWARE, both Robin and Tori seem to have a goal of getting you really fat on all of their amazing food, there is always more if you want it (The blueberry pancakes were the best I have ever had and yes I had to go back for seconds).

We stayed in the Yellow room which is located on the second floor. The room was very clean and had everything you needed. Very bright room with a lot of natural sunlight. I did find that the room got very warm quickly but you have your own thermostat so you can control your own temp. This room was quiet with only the occasional noise of the heat turning on. Right outside the room was a small ice machine along with beer/wine glasses and cork screws/bottle opener. There is also a refrigerator for your use down in the dining area. All of the other rooms (the only one we did not get to see was the Pine Room) were just as clean and beautifully decorated. The jacuzzi claw-foot tub in the Rose room looked awesome.

The location is the best you will find. The B&B is located on a very quiet side street in downtown Freeport and you can walk to all of the stores (such as L.L.Bean) and great restaurants in less than 5 minutes. We also learned that the Amtrak Downeaster stops right in town (about a 6 minute walk) and comes from Boston for only $39 round trip.

I would highly recommend the James Place Inn if you are looking for a nice, quiet, delicious and friendly place to stay. Instead of going to Aruba this year, go to Freeport and just ask either Tori or Robin what to do, they will fill up your itinerary quick with interesting and fun adventures. Thanks again Tori and Robin, we will be back.

I recently had the pleasure of spending a night and morning at the lovely James Place Inn. I am a repeat guest and will continue in the future to enjoy this B&B. By now I have stayed in most of the rooms and love them all. Each room has it's own pleasant personality and charm. The rooms are comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. I stayed in my favorite, the wisteria room, complete with a large jacuzzi tub and lots of natural light. It's next to the kitchen, so when I rise I can get a first hand peak at what the master chef is creating for breakfast. The innkeepers, Robin and Tori, are consistently friendly, caring, helpful, and genuine. They are most excellent hosts and the food, well if this were a restaurant it would be packed everyday. The breakfast has many choices and it is all made from scratch and locally sourced. I truly believe their cooking should be written up in a foodie magazine, if it hasn't already. The coffee is a special roast from one of the best local coffee roasters/cafe and it is quite tasty. I have never been disappointed and am always satisfied with how consistently wonderful this inn and it's hosts treat me and the other guests to a dish of warm hospitality.

The James Place Inn is the perfect B&B to stay at while visiting the area. There are 7 beautiful rooms to choose from (some of which include a fireplace or a jacuzzi). The inn is located on a quiet street right off Main St., which makes for an easy trip to and from the local stores and restaurants. The innkeepers (Toni and Robin) are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to suggestions about things to do in the area. Robin prepares a great breakfast for you every morning that will keep you fueled through whatever adventure you choose to embark on. I can not say enough to explain how GREAT this B&B is!

We stayed at the inn for our first time and are sure to be returning visitors! The hospitality was amazing, the location could not have been better and our room (the yellow room) was tastefully decorated, comfortable and roomy. The breakfast was delicious and the innkeeper's knowledge of the area and recommendations for local restaurants came in great handy. The inn is just a very short walk to all area attractions. From the minute we checked in till the time that we left, we went everywhere by foot. Freeport is a beautiful place and a winter snowstorm made it that much more "picture perfect". Can't wait to return for our next trip!
