The room was perfect. They spared no expense on the bedding It felt like you were sleeping on Angels wings. We sat in the living...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 July 2016

Great Inn for relaxing and enjoying Maine. Exquisite furnishings and immaculate. The inn keepers are experts at what they do and it shows in every aspect of the B&B. Walk into town -leave the car parked. Enjoy a variety of restaurants and then slip into the comfy beds at the Jefferds Inn! Five stars!

Meticulously maintained and well-managed inn and gardens, best pet-friendly option in this area (including welcome letter addressed to your pet by name). Bedroom equipped with every possible amenity. Convenient off-street parking. Communal sit-down breakfast at set time (9am) included an excellent fluffy home-made quiche, preceded by tasty strawberries topped with romanoff sauce. New York Times and Wall Street Journal available...

We stayed for two nights as a get away just before the Thanksgiving rush. Sarah and Erik were wonderful hosts and their team made sure we were comfortable with every aspect of our stay.

This bed and breakfast is the most beautiful place we have ever been to. There were tons of subtle touches that made this stay amazing from the fresh case of flowers in the room, to the throw blanket on the back of the sitting chair to the robes available in the room.
