“A gem of a B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

We have traveled in many countries and would rate the Nicholson Inn near the top of all the places we have stayed. Jean and Alden made our stay feel like visiting long lost friends. Great location and very close to LL Bean. The breakfast was great and we learned a lot about the history of Freeport from Jean. Will certainly stay there during our next stay in Freeport. Alec M

It was starting to get late as we were driving through Freeport so at the last minute we decided to find somewhere to stay. We spotted this lovely looking Inn on the main road just 2 minutes from the town centre and were so glad we stopped!

The whole place was extremely charming and full of character. It feels very homely. We were at the front of the house but never heard any traffic from the road. The 4 poster bed was extremely comfortable and I loved the thick plush carpets!

The next morning we came down to a home cooked breakfast of (homemade) stewed apples, sausages and omlette. Just the thing to set us up for the day.

Location is excellent. You are only a few minutes walk from town which is shops, shops and more shops!

Alden and Jane were very welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. Their knowledge of the area proved very useful and it was lovely hearing about the family history with the Inn.

Would have no hesitation in recommending the Nicholson Inn and would definately stay there again. Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay with Alden and Jane. The breakfast was a delight each day and the conversation around the table always enjoyable. They were very attentive to detail and and help needed as well as just great conversation. The proximity to LL Bean, shops and dining was a plus. We also enjoyed being able to use the living room to visit with family in the area who dropped by for a glass of wine. We will always check for their availability when planning our every other year trip to New England for the foliage and visiting relatives.

Room Tip: They do have one large upper room for 3.

We just spent four nights with Jean and Alden. We were so impressed with their lovely B & B. the rooms were so comfortable and nicely decorated. Cleaned with fresh towels daily! The full breakfast really started the day off right. Wonderful eggs with ham, French toast with real maple syrup, homemade jellies and jam, fresh or poached fruit, bottomless coffee and much more. Also, we all sat at the large dining table with people from all over the US and the world. Great conversation ensued! When we are in Maine visiting our daughter we will not stay anywhere else!

We had a lovely 2 night stay at the Nicholson Inn. The innkeepers, Alden and Jane, were terrific and of course I loved Nick, the dog. We were in Freeport for a bike race and needed a locale close to the starting line. Nicholson Inn fit the bill and we're glad we found this lovely inn. You can walk to all attractions in Freeport, especially all of the outlets. If you want to shop and not sit in congested traffic, this is the place to stay!

My husband and I enjoyed our two nights at the Nicholson Inn so much we came back to Freeport at the end of our trip and stayed there another night. Jane and Alden are great. So knowledgable of the area and full of great tips and advice. Breakfast was a real treat too. Something different each morning and we're not talking simple breakfast either. It was real, made from scratch pancakes, eggs benedict, omelets, and the best homemade applesauce. We would definitely recommend the Nicholson Inn. We can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room on the front of the house and were worried about traffic noise, but it wasn'...

Jane and Alden are the real thing. No pretense here, just good old hospitality. Great location so you can walk just about anywhere. Our hosts were really helpful in detailed information about area attractions, hikes, out of the way treasures and area history.

The room was spotless and the best part was Alden's HUGE breakfasts each morning. Accommodating all food preferences, we had it all and didn't need to eat until our late afternoon snacks on the porch rockers.

Definitely a great experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely. Only one room accommodates 3 people, so be sure to book early.
