Everything about our experience at the HBI was terrific! We had gone there to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and came away - more glad than ever - that we had chosen the HBI to mark that special date.
Although the Inn is creaky and quirky, given its age that's what makes it so charming. The room, too, had a lot of turn-of-the-century draw (including no phone or t.v.) that really make the whole weekend that much more relaxing.
Proximity to the beach, which was just a two-minute walk down the road, plus being so close to restaurants and shopping also makes it a premiere location to stay.
Owners Bob and Diane were extremely affable, helpful and accommodating – and the young ladies who served breakfast in the morning were extremely polite and very friendly.
I've had the good fortune to stay at quite few 5-star hotels throughout Europe and North America, but nothing compares with my time at the Higgins Beach Inn – and the beautiful beach town in which it's nestled.
If great value at a family-friendly inn, tucked into one of the best beaches in Maine, is what you're looking for then you can't go wrong with this seaside gem!
