Comfy accomodations in quaint New England Town

  • 4 of 5

Kathy, the proprietor is such a friendly person who has done an awesome job with this little inn. We traveled for business and this little place was perfect! Great places to walk around town, easy commute to Portland, gorgeous views out the top floor bedroom and super comfy furniture. Also, there is a Keurig for late night work sessions. We LOVED meeting Kathy's rescue lab, Buddy, who lives downstairs. He sometimes greeted us when we came back in the evening with his sock monkey toy and it just made us smile! Highly recommend for solo travelers, business travelers, couples, or pals on a getaway.

Thank you Kathy and family for a great week!

Friendly accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit this year to the Bowdoinham Village Suite! The accommodations are clean, comfortable and accessible. We were visiting family in the area so when we returned to the suite in the late evening we were welcomed "home" by the outside light!

Stayed 2 nights

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in this rental for 2 nights, looking at Maine colleges. Location of rental is quiet, but not near any facilities (restaurants etc). Weather was hot when we were there- living room area had portable AC, but bedroom had ceiling fan only. Unit was very private. I slept on sofa bed in living room- sun was bright in morning- might consider darker curtains.

Overall, I recommend staying here if you have a car and are visiting this region of Maine. It is quieter and larger than a hotel, but need to drive to nearest town (maybe 10-15 min) for restaurants, shopping etc. Unit was very clean and well appointed. Owner was very responsive over the phone- did not meet in person.
