Where to Stay in Freeport, Maine

You have many options when choosing where to stay in Freeport, Maine.  There are chain hotel properties, family owned hotel properties, camp grounds, pet-friendly properties…and then there are bed and breakfasts.B&B sign

When thinking of bed and breakfasts, you often think of someone’s home converted into individual sleeping quarters, perhaps sharing a bathroom.  Not so here in Freeport.  Think of an experience more like a relaxed yet intimate boutique hotel.  For instance, James Place Inn offers seven guest rooms, all with a private bath, some with Jacuzzi tubs.  Each room is uniquely decorated and has its own “personality.”  Several rooms offer skylights, one has a tucked-away mini kitchen, another a wood burning fireplace and private deck.  The rooms are well appointed with waters, custom made soaps, shampoo/conditioner, and chocolates by your bed.  The in house DVD library lets you help yourself to the over 150 titles anytime, making viewing in the privacy of your room a pleasure.

Service is a distinguishing feature when looking at where to spend your hard earned vacation time.  You want to be at a place that takes care of you but doesn’t hover or interfere.  This is exactly the attention you will find at James Place Inn.  While the owners are just steps away, they have a private residence so that you are not sleeping in the room next door in someone’s home.  Guests enjoy the privacy of the inn, as well as knowing that the owners are available to answer questions, help with reservations, and bake those awesome fresh cookies in the afternoons.
