Make A Maine Bed and Breakfast Your Home Away From Home

Are you in the mood to be pampered? If so, you're due for a stay at a Maine Bed and Breakfast. Why stay at a hotel or motel where you're just one of many weary travelers, when you can enjoy the more personal attention that a Bed and Breakfast can provide.

Whether you're looking for a cozy room with a fireplace and in-room jacuzzi for that getaway with your special "someone" or a historic Victorian on the seacoast for a family break during school vacation, you'll find the perfect fit with a Maine Bed and Breakfast.

Your hosts will provide everything you need for a perfect vacation, including meals that you don't have to go out for. While some B&B's only serve breakfast or casual lunches, many are also famous for their fine dining. What's extra nice is that you don't need a reservation if you're staying down the hall from the dining room.

Hundreds of B&B's dot the Maine seacoast from Kennebunkport to Calais, so you'll have no trouble finding oceanside lodging. Maine's lakes, mountains and highlands also offer many chances for a B&B experience in all four seasons. Ski all day and come home to snacks and drinks in front of the fire or conversation in the hot tub while you soak those tired muscles.

Make a Maine Bed and Breakfast your home base while you explore museums, shops and nearby restaurants. It's so much easier and more authentic to live right in town in a house that might have been the homestead for a ship's captain or a famous Maine family.

Most Maine B&B's have common rooms in addition to your bedroom where you can relax, read or meet other residents. Many innkeepers bake cookies in the afternoon or provide picnic lunches if you request it. Best of all, when you stay at a Bed and Breakfast, you're treated as an individual and your likes and dislikes are taken into consideration. Your hosts will give you as much or as little attention as you desire, so your privacy and comfort is assured.

Like most of the best things in life, staying in a Maine Bed and Breakfast is great in large part because of the little things. Beds with extra pillows and handmade quilts. Ruffled curtains and unique decor in each room. Rockers on wide porches with a view of Main Street or a cove full of lobster boats. Bath tubs big enough to soak in and fluffy towels warming over the radiator.

Next time, instead of making a reservation at a big chain motel where every room is the same, treat yourself to a stay where everyone knows your name and what you like on your pancakes. Relax and get away from the stress and demands of everyday life with the kind of weekend or vacation you really want. Stay at a Maine Bed and Breakfast where life is sweet and you're an honored guest.
