Dave and Shirley were so accommodating. They made special efforts to book us on a busy Maine weekend, even when they planned on being away on holiday themselves! Easy to find, yet secluded. Nice walking areas around property. Explored and found a field connected to a wooded trail that led to a train track. Morning coffee on our small upper...

We truly enjoyed staying at this lovely bed and breakfast. Dave and Shirley were extremely welcoming and the studio met our needs perfectly. The accommodations were very clean, bright and just what we expected from the website. We are staying here again when possible. We would recommend The Roost whole heartedly.

I give this wonderful little B & B the highest rating possible! The owners, David and Shirley, were charming and so very helpful. The breakfast was great and the company of the 'chef' was enjoyable as she cooked and talked with us as we watched her do her 'magic'. Yes, I will return to this wonderful little 'getaway'!

My wife and I stayed in the The Loft efficiency apartment at The Roost B&B along with our adult son (21). He slept on the hideaway bed in the living room which was a little cramped for his 6'3" frame. Very nice amenities. Kitchenette had the basics for having own meals. Bathroom was nice and clean with having the washer/dryer...

Management response:

Thank you for writing that wonderful review. We do aim to please and hope you may be able to return again. You may want to consider the Hydeaway on your next visit as it has two beds, one queen and one double. Even though it does not afford a kitchen or washer/dryer, it may be more comfortable for a third...

My wife and I were just passing through the area. The reviews we read proved to be true. David and Shirley were very friendly. Their home was clean and well maintained both inside and out. They do not accept credit cards but an ATM is nearby. Breakfast, presentation and taste, was awesome.

My 10 year old and I stayed one night at this warm, welcoming, clean, and spacious B&B for $86.40. What a bargain!

We had to be in the area for work and decided to stay at The Roost. The room was clean as was everything in the bathroom. We are cleaners and would have noticed if it wasn't- lol. The hosts are very friendly and the breakfast was very good and filling. I would definitely recommend staying at this bed & breakfast!
