If you are looking for a charming, quaint, out of the way location to relax and sit on a porch and rock your cares away, well look no further than the Maple Hill Farm Bed & Breakfast and Conference Center located in Hallowell, just outside of Augusta, Maine. You can park your car under the new Portege' while you enter the office area just inside the door and are greeted by Scott, one of the innkeeprs. You get to see some of the items sold right there on the farm, delicious locally made maple syrup, bath salts, oils, etc. all displayed in a glass case beneath a beautiful, polished slab of granite which used to be one of the stairs entering this post and beam structure. Scott and Vince the co-owners of this beautifully restored and period furnished inn have owned Maple Hill for about 14 years and have done a remarkable job of restoring and creating the lovely rooms in which to stay. Scott enthusiastically toured us around the main floor of the inn pointing out some of the restorative details they've done over the years. The dining room is adorned with paintings done by local artists all for sale. There is a guest kitchen area where one can help themselves to coffee, tea, hot chocolate and homemade chocolate chip cookies, and Maine blueberry mufffins 24/7! There is also an ice machine with buckets to bring to your room. We were delighted to find a homey touch of our first names written on little placards on the doors to our rooms. We met Maxine, the farm cat. She is very friendly and roams the entire downstairs area of the inn or outdoors, but does not go to the guest rooms. Scott was very helpful in giving advice on where to go eat dinner in town. There's a fat binder at your disposal which holds menus from many of the local eateries. We ate at the "Liberal Cup" and were filled on their comfort food repast - delicious! Vince is the chef and we were amazed to find such an array of cooked to order choices for breakfast. The coffee was freshly ground and delicious; pitchers of fresh orange juice, baskets of muffins, and a big bowl of fresh fruit salad awaited guests as they walked into the dining room. There were fresh from their own chicken eggs cooked to order with sides of sausage or bacon, Maine wild blueberry pancakes, with locally made maple syrup, toast made from on-site homemade wheat or white bread, and also a local oatmeal-type porridge, but made from a wheat-free grain called Spelt. My friend said it was delicious. Every room is tastefully decorated and unique unto itself with period furnishings, all rooms are air conditioned and have t.v.s and dvd's at your disposal in the room. Some rooms have jacuzzis and fireplaces (ours had both!) The entire inn and conference center are beautiful to look at and meticulously maintained. We will always return to Maple Hill Farm B&B whenever we are visiting Maine. It is centrally located and found with great signage right off I-95 from Augusta.

Huge double whirlpool tubs, fireplaces, and private decks accentuate some guest rooms.
