“Spectacular Weekend in Freeport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

My wife and I just spent the weekend in Freeport, staying at the James Place Inn B&B. We could not have asked for a nicer experience. Robin and Tori were more than accommodating. We were in Freeport to take an L.L. Bean Fly Fishing course and had to leave early in the morning to attend classes. Robin and Tori got up practically at the crack of dawn to make sure we had a full breakfast (the ham and cheese scones were out of this world). At night when we came back to the B&B we had fresh oatmeal macadamia cookies waiting for us. My wife is already making arrangements to go back later in the Spring with one of her girlfriends (the B&B is dangerously close to all the shops in Freeport). Needless to say, we highly recommend the James Place Inn to anyone who plans to visit Freeport.

It was such a pleasure to see the two of you first thing in the morning! We had a great time talking and laughing - the perfect start to the day. We are so glad that you enjoyed your experience as much as we enjoyed ours! Thank you for writing such a nice review. We hope to see you back and share some stories again soon.

Wow! If you are planning a trip to Freeport, you have to stay with Robin and Tori at the James Place Inn B&B. This being our first trip to the New England area, they were gracious hosts and gave us advice and suggestions on things we should do and helped us route the remainder of our New England tour as well. Breakfast was delicious and endless and Robin even sent us on our way with a goodie bag of muffins and cookies when our visit was over. The visit to Freeport was perfect and we are already planning a return trip with our children sometime in the future.

We recently spent three nights at the James Place Inn, to include getting Married there.
Robin and Tori were great and very acomidating. This was our second time staying at the James Place Inn and we plan on returning at least annualy. You couldn't find a more comfortable place to stay or better people.

We live in Ma and been going up North to Me. for a birthday weekend every February. For the past three years we've chosen The James Place Inn . The Inn keepers are just so intune to the needs of their individual guests. The rooms are so charming and both Tori and Robin make you feel so welcome. I can't say enough abour the great breakfasts and homemade treats baked fresh daily. The James Place is a very special place that once you experience the hospitality you'll want to go back again,again,and again.

Thank you for making us your birthday destination and sharing your enjoyment here with others. We so enjoy seeing you and your husband and having a chance to catch up on what is happening in your lives. The breakfast conversation is always a treat! We will hope to see you next year and we will be sure the fireplace is well stocked with wood! Until then, al the best.

My first trip here was a surprise trip for my birthday that my boyfriend planned it was so awesome the next year my sister and I brought our mom for mother’s day. So many well thought out details made our trips here so special. Wine glasses, DVDs, amazing breakfast, granola, and excellent restaurant recommendations.

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at the James Place Inn in March 2013. Robin and Tori could not be more friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious, as were the freshly baked cookies and brownies. We stayed in the Pine room which has a lovely fireplace that Robin made sure was "match-ready" for us each day. The Inn is in a perfect location, just a short walk to LL Bean and the outlets.

Room Tip: The Pine room has a wood fireplace which is great for a cozy winter stay.

This was our fourth stay at The James Place Inn and it was exactly as we remembered, excellent! Tori and Robin are great hosts and they make you feel like family as soon as you arrive. They go above and beyond to help with anything you need. They're always ready to offer suggestions on restaurants, shops, and places to see near by.
You will never leave the breakfast table hungry. Robin (and Tori when Robin is away) knows how to cook. If you have room, I suggest you get the "Sampler Platter". It's a little bit of everything, but well worth it. They also have little goodies available throughout the day; just in case you get a little sweet craving mid-afternoon.
We've stayed in 4 out of the 7 rooms and love them all. The rooms are very clean and up to date.
The location of The James Place Inn is perfect. Leave your car in their driveway and walk to all of the shops. No need to worry about parking!
If you're planning a trip to Freeport book a room at The James Place Inn, you will not be disappointed. We've stayed at many highly recommended B&B's, but none compare to the service and quality you will find at The James Place Inn.

Room Tip: We've stayed in 4 out of 7 rooms at The James Place Inn and each room has something we like abou...
