Close to the Opera House and downtown BBH. Easy walk downtown to all that BBH has to offer. We had a great meal in the in-house restaurant and drinks in the bar. Lovely hosts, friendly staff. Great place to stay.

This is more a B&B with an quasi absentee owner. Well managed this could be a nice property. The pros: - location. - large room with a large bathroom. - comfortable bed (although ours was very high and could be difficult for some people to climb in). The cons: - no office that you can go to to deal with any issue; you have to email the owner to get him to respond; when you call the number indicated on the guest information booklet you get an answering machine and our call was not returned; - steep staircase which may make it difficult for people who have trouble climbing stairs. - no microwave (but the owner installed one in a common area after we spoke to him) and small fridge which, strangely, sits on the floor rather than on a table. No coffee machine in the room but there is one in a common area. - Orbitz' and Expedia's information was not correct (they said breakfast was included when it apparently was not but the owner gave us credit for it). - heater and fridge were very noisy. - Direct TV did not function properly. - cleaning lady threw away things she should not have dealt with but left dirty towel lying on the floor outside the room. - furniture seems like things found at a flee market and thrown together in a room Overall, we stayed in similarly or even lower priced but much nicer and better equipped inns during our trip in Maine. This could be a much nicer place if it were better managed.
