When you stay at a Maine inn or bed & breakfast, pretend you’re a local. After all, you’re staying in someone’s home or in a cozy inn - which, quite possibly, was someone’s home in the past. Whether you’re in the country or a city, there’ll probably be neighbors. Go ahead and smile and, if the mood hits you, wave. We do that here. Ask your innkeeper where the locals go for a lobster roll and then, go eat there. Take a walk around the neighborhood. That’s what locals do.
Inns and Bed & Breakfasts offer you a chance for a close-to-the ground vacation, cozied up and comfortable. The lodgings come in all varieties in Maine, from simple houses to the former mansions of sea captains. Depending on where you stay, you’ll be offered all kinds of personal touches, from fancy bedding to home-cooked meals. And your innkeeper can also give you advice – Where’s the best bike trail? Where can I shop for socks? – that makes your temporary locals’ experience that much better.
