“Even better than the pictures!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

I was looking for a beautiful, snow-covered Maine setting for my after Christmas vacation with the family. The Old Saco Inn was better than I could have hoped for when I booked the trip. The inn is situated on many acres with beautiful woods and the river running through the property. The inn is decorated in a lodge style, but with an updated feel that is warm and inviting. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are a wonderful surprise. Each day there was something fantastic like an egg souffle, fresh fruit, and roasted tomatos with basil and olive oil. There is also a pub in the main building that serves drinks and light food. There are snow shoes to use on the trails on the property. The best part of the inn, however, are Pete and Sandi, the owners. They are wonderful and make you feel like you are old friends. I can't say enough about how wonderful the place is and highly recommend it for couples or families. My kids are 14 and 20 and they loved it. My 14 year old was sad to leave. I would also recommend taking a guided tour with Todd Flagg of "Good Life Adventures" while you are there. Todd took us snow shoeing to the most beautiful mountain overlook where we never would have gone on our own. Ask Pete and Sandi for his number you won't regret it!

Hosts were amazing, they have a great story that brought them to Maine. We stayed two nights around New Years in the Sweden suite. We snowshoed the trails around the B and B. Beautiful trails. We spent time at the North Conway outlet stores as well.

Spent 4 nights at this B&B in western Maine. These charming innkeepers are in the right biz, breakfast was amazing; rooms clean and comfy. Felt right at home, relaxing in the common rooms, good reading nooks and table game areas and even entertained a few friends during our stay. Hard to leave!

We stayed at the Old Saco Inn for four nights around New Years for a ski trip to Shawnee peak and absolutely loved it. Pete and Sandi are wonderful hosts and the accommodations are absolutely marvelous. We were traveling with another family and booked adjoining rooms in the carriage house and could not have had a better experience -- the rooms were comfortable and clean, the main lodge is cozy and inviting, and the breakfasts (and food in general) great. Highly recommended!

My husband and I stayed for two nights for our annual anniversary trip to the white mountains area...what a wonderful find! The room was unique and beautiful, the food fresh and delicious, the grounds wonderful and the innkeepers were warm and friendly. We will definitely go back.

Having been long-time residents of the Mt. Washington valley, my wife and I visited with Pete and Sandi at the Old Sacco Inn just prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. Having lived in Virginia the past 20 years or so, we were looking to reconnect with the area. Our stay over three days was truly enjoyable and the atmosphere was very relaxing as opposed to the hustle and bustle of the more heavily trodden North Conway area. We experienced a fantastic dinner at the Inn while enjoying the ambience of the central fireplace and catching up with both family and friends. This location is in very close proximity to the Chatham NH locale with access to truly unspoiled scenic country heading out towards Evans Notch. This location also offers high-speed Wi-Fi and cable television allowing you to both stay connected and decompress when the mood hits you. Recommended stops would include a visit to the local Log Cabin Design business on Rt 5, who specializes in outdoor equipment and clothing. You may also want to make a visit to Sherman Farms, along E. Conway road for a variety of vegetables, cheeses, preserves and other local fare. One thing we can guarantee is that Sandi’s breakfast will prove to be unforgettable for getting your day started and that you can rely on Pete’s knowledge of the area during your stay!

Room Tip: We have stayed at both the Carriage House rooms and those directly part of the main Inn and enjoyed...

Pete and Sandi, the owners of the establishment, are very welcoming and provide a great atmosphere. My wife and I were in town to run a local race and could not have found a better place to rest our weary bodies afterwards. The food and pub was top notch as well and we will definitely be back the first chance we get!

Room Tip: Stayed in the Sweden Suite and would highly recommend it to others.
