The innkeepers are dedicated to making guests comfortable, with a wealth of information about the area and the best breakfasts! Their personal warmth and the charming rooms made our two day stay very special.

The Riverside Inn is the kind of place I'm always hoping to find, but rarely do. The main building is an old house, imaginatively furnished with an eclectic assortment of Victoriana and antiques from other eras. There's a living room stuffed with books, a sitting room, a riverside patio, and a breakfast room that also overlooks the river. We didn't...

The Riverside Inn is a nice B&B to stay in if you are planning to go on a Puffin Tour in Maine. The couple that runs the inn are very friendly and the patio is a great place for a drink at the end of the day. Possibly the best part of the stay was the outstanding breakfast of pancakes...

We stayed at this Bed and Breakfast for two nights while going on Puffin tours out of Cutler. We loved it here. Upon check in we were asked what we would like for breakfast the following morning. Breakfast was fantastic. A fresh fruit plate followed by Blueberry stuffed French Toast and sausage. We stayed in the upstairs room that is...

It certainly is not overwhelming at first sight appearance, but other area motel were full and we were pretty tired so we decided to stop and look. Rocky and Ellen downsized their restaurant to a B&B Inn and I am glad they did. Located overlooking a beautiful bend in the river just past a little village called East Machias on...

From the moment we arrived at the inn, we felt very welcome. The owners were more than happy to spend extra time helping us map out activities and sites to visit. She even wrote us out directions and suggested routes. We stayed in the upper coach room which was nice and quite, with fantastic view of the river. Rocky prepared...

We stayed two nights in the upper suite in the detached building adjacent to the Inn. The weather was rather rainy but the warm welcome and wonderful breakfasts made it a delightful stay. Rocky and Ellen, the Inn Keepers, both attended culinary training and the breakfasts were a testimony to their cooking skills. Rocky cooked our breakfast on the first...

“Twin bedded room on 2nd floor of main house; others are either doubles or queen. The window air conditioner helped to muffle the noise from the close by US Route 1. Rooms in the annex might be a little quieter.”
