We spent 5 nights at The Inn at English Meadows and thoroughly enjoyed being there! The location is perfect to explore the southern coast of Maine. I can’t say enough about the hospitality that we enjoyed and the food was amazing! Every morning, we had a delicious, creative breakfast presented by a wonderful staff! Melissa (chef) was delightful and a wizard in the kitchen, Amber (guest services) did a great job taking care of all our needs! The Inn is beautiful and we loved our stay! Thank you! Kent and Debi

Property's Favourite Review
We spent two nights at The Inn at English Meadows as part of a Marriott Vacation Club, Epicurean Tour. The owner, Elizabeth is wonderful. She is welcoming, friendly and helpful. Our suite in the carriage house was comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast in the morning was a truly enjoyable experience. Even though it was mid October and the weather in the morning was cool ( low 40’s), we sat outside both mornings. Breakfast was two courses; fruit first and then a unique breakfast entree. Our first morning, we had sliced bananas with yogurt, granola and local honey, plus blueberries. It was excellent. Our breakfast entree was two soft bacon waffles with Maine syrup. Delicious. The second morning we had fresh blackberries and afresh, warm, blueberry scone. Our entree was a cheese and vegetable tart. Also delicious. As part of our “Marriott” package, we spent our second afternoon in the kitchen with Kathy, Elizabeth’s chef. This was a private cooking exercise with Kathy in the kitchen at the Inn. Our menu was fresh lobster in a beurre blanc sauce with roasted potatoes and roasted cherry tomatoes. We had a cheese tray available along with a bottle of wine while assisting with the meal preparation. We started by making the beurre blanc sauce which was much easier than I imagined. After prepping the vegetables and getting them in the oven, we put water on the stove to steam the lobsters. Cooking and cleaning the lobster meat was again, easier than imagined. We then put the lobster meat into the sauce and then plated the meal. Finally, we then moved to the dining room to enjoy the fruits of our labor. This was an awesome experience. I understand that this cooking experience can be booked directly on the Inn web site. This was a first class experience and we appreciate the support from Kathy and Elizabeth.

Response from Elizabeth Arruda, Owner at The Inn at English Meadows
Responded 23 Feb 2023
Hi Mike, thanks so much for the wonderful review that offers such great detail about our breakfasts and our culinary package - I'm sure all the foodies out there will appreciate reading this one! Our breakfasts are a huge part of what we offer here as a traditional bed and breakfast inn, and we put a lot of time and care into our daily menu planning, preparation and service. The cooking class is our most popular package, and you're correct that any guest can book this very special culinary experience directly with us on our website. Chefs Kathy, Derek and Justin all provide guests with a fabulous Maine lobster experience, and they strive to present and help guests prepare a delicious meal that looks fancy but can easily be prepared at home! I'm so glad to hear that you found your stay at the Inn and the culinary experience to be first class - we appreciate you so much for sharing it all here!

What an absolutely wonderful stay we had at the beautiful The Inn at English Meadows. From the time we arrived until the morning we checked out we were treated with elegance, kindness, and best of Service. Thank you Diane. Our guest room was beautiful and just what we hoped, absolutely clean and complete with fluffy towels and robes. Our breakfasts prepared by the amazing Melissa were truly delicious. And how we enjoyed the warm afternoon cookies. We highly recommend this Inn.

Our stay was just one night, but it all you could ask for in a comfortable stay. Jane, one of the owners, served as our innkeeper and could not have been nicer. She is warm and friendly and she was always available to answer our questions. A wonderful host. Our breakfast was an amazing creation from Chef Melissa and a wonderful touch was a candle in my french toast for my birthday. We are so happy we found this Inn and will be back.

We had a wonderful, restful stay at this lovely inn. It was a quick, one night get-away but this inn was perfect! The host is delightful and highly attentive to her guests. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated (as was the entire inn) and comfortable. The common areas were welcoming and comfortably appointed. There was a “wine dispenser” which we thoroughly enjoyed and complimentary snacks, seltzers and afternoon cookies (delicious)! Breakfast was yummy; a yogurt parfait with fresh fruit and granola, homemade blueberry pancakes, bacon and freshly brewed coffee and juice. The grounds were also lovely; twinkling lights welcomed us home from dinner and we enjoyed the birds having their breakfast at the freshly filled bird feeders in the morning when we were leaving! I would highly recommend a stay at this wonderful inn and we’ll definitely be back!

What a gem! Our room was quiet with a fireplace and heated tiles in the gloriously large bathroom. Breakfast was wonderful and the common area's amenities cannot be beat. Our hostesses were awesome. Super comfortable bed and great space for our dog. We will definitely be back!

We went to English Meadows Inn this past weekend with Paint the the town red theme celebrations for valentines. The Inn is very nice and clean. Our room was very spacious with a fire place to keep us warm on a very chilly weekend. Breakfast was delicious and presented very nicely. We ordered a charcuterie board with champagne and it was present in our room. The town is walkable from the inn and the restaurants were all great. The classic car museum was near the inn and very worth to see.

My girlfriend and I stayed here to spend the Valentines day weekend together and had a phenomenal time. Jane is incredibly welcoming and the entire house and staff make you feel very comfortable. The breakfast was top notch. Out of all the restaurants we ate at, the breakfast was far and ahead the best food we had. We plan on coming back here in the summer time. Thank you again Jane! -Justin and Danielle
