Tom and Judy are wonderful hosts. This is our fifth or sixth stay at the Black Lantern and we are always pleased. The accomodations and breakfast are always top notch. Topsham is a convenient location for us when we are traveling to other areas in Maine or eastern Canada.

I can't say enough about the hospitality at the Black Lantern Inn. Tom and Judy know how to meet all the needs of their guests. Their home was beautifully decorated for the fall season. OMG! Candy-corn available on the second floor landing! My favorite Halloween candy. Tom and Judy make you truly feel you are a personal guest. The outside...

My husband and I spent the last three nights of our honeymoon at the black lantern. Tom and Judy are wonderful and gracious hosts and the entire house is gorgeous.

This could not have been a better experience. The host and hostess were delightful. The room was charming. The beds were comfy. The food was wonderful. The grounds were beautiful. The river bordered their property. There were so many places to sit and relax and enjoy the ambiance. The parlor with a fireplace was a very nice place to have...

Since we are outdoorsy people, my now husband and I wanted to go to Maine for our honeymoon. After looking through TripAdvisor, we ultimately decided on The Black Lantern B&B due to it's high reviews. We were not disappointed. The B&B itself is lovely, as are the two wonderful people who run it. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and...

Tom and Judy have large common areas and a quiet yard above the river available for relaxation or family activity. Rooms are pleasant, nicely appointed, and well served. Besides the friendliness and advice on places to go, best are the breakfasts. They try never to serve the same thing to you, but seem to always have fresh fruit, things baked,...

We spent one night here on our way to Acadia National Park. The owner was welcoming and available when we had questions but otherwise left us to ourselves (to my mind this is the perfect balance!).
