Finding Bed & Breakfast in Maine

Maine, the way life should be. It’s written on the welcome signs bordering the state, as well as on many pieces of promotional materials. Everyone loves traveling to Maine, too, which is touted as Vacationland. It doesn’t have to just be for vacations, though. People travel to Maine for so many reasons including to get married. A historical moment many are also visiting Maine for is its recent passage of the law allowing for same-sex marriages.

Mainers United for Marriage

When people visit Maine to get married, be a member of the wedding party, or attend as guests, there are several bed and breakfasts throughout the state that are LGBT friendly. With the passing of this law, it’s speculated that this list of establishments will continue growing.

• A Sweet Pea Pied-a-terre, Cottage Rental
80 Cottage Street, Ogunquit, ME

• Aysgarth Station
20 Roberts Ave, Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island, ME, 04609

• Black Boar Inn
277 Main Street, Ogunquit, ME

• Camden Harbour Inn
83 Bayview St, Camden, Maine, 04843

• Distant Sands Bed & Breakfast
632 Main Street, Ogunquit, ME

• Graycote Inn
40 Holland Ave, Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island, Maine, 04609

• Hartstone Inn
41 Elm St, Camden, Maine, 04843

• Maples Inn
16 Roberts Ave., Bar Harbor, Mount Desert Island, ME, 04609

• Moon Over Maine
22 Berwick Road, Ogunquit, ME

As you can see, this list is extensive for particular areas of the State of Maine. Like any other trip you’re about to embark upon, it’s important to book your room well in advance and ensure all the amenities you’re looking for are present. Ask questions like:

1. Is there fine dining located near the bed and breakfast?
2. What is included in the room? (i.e. linens, television, views, etc.)
3. Are there any venues playing shows or concerts in the area?
4. Can you easily walk to shopping or sight-seeing areas?
5. What are the check-in and check-out times?

The beauty of Maine is unlike any other experience you’ll have. Not only is there a plethora of seafood cuisine to enjoy, but there are plenty of “turf” foods for those who prefer not to dine from the sea surrounding so much of this beautiful state. Beyond food, though, there are unique shopping experiences, theater attractions, and rocky coasts to explore.

I’ve never been disappointed with any of the time I’ve spent in Maine, and I doubt you will be either. Just make sure you spend some time planning first because there’s a lot to see!
