Alewives & Ales Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 3 Damariscotta B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 September 2011

Alewives & Ales did not disappoint! We traveled with another couple and so had two rooms; both were very pleasant, clean, and had comfortable beds and baths. The house is welcoming, as are the hosts. Ray can give you a primer on small-batch ales (and maybe give you a taste) and Mimi provides a terrific breakfast so wake up hungry. We will certainly repeat our stay here when next in Damariscotta!

All rooms at this bed and breakfast have their own bath. Breakfast each morning included delicious home made scones and fresh fruit, the berries grown in their own garden. French toast and local bacon one morning, a delicious vegetable frittata and sausage the next. No tv in the rooms but there is a tv with a dvd player in a common room and also a nice quiet study/library. beautiful renovated old building. A great place to stay while checking out the lovely coastal Maine towns.
Lastly if you are a homebrewer you just might be able to talk Ray the maintenance guy to share one of his homebrews with you.
I highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

This graciously restored historic home is pristine, comfortable and welcoming. There is a sitting room/library with a wood stove as well as two dining rooms where you can choose to eat privately or join other guests at a large table. The bedroom suites are lovely, thoughtfully decorated and equipped and so comfy!
The food at breakfast was outstanding.
I will definately return.

Room Tip: All rooms were quiet.

Excellent breakfasts and accommodations. Very clean and comfortable as well as tastefully decorated .The innkeeper was attentive without being in the way. We relaxed in the evening in the cozy sitting room by the gas fireplace. I'd highly recommend this B & B. We have been there twice and plan to return next year.

As a B & B goes this was nice. Breakfast was delicious and the hostess very hospitable. The room was nice but very basic. No tv in the bedroom . Coffee available anytime to help yourself. in the dining area. Nice outdoor patio if you want to sit outside on a beautiful summer day. Only spent one night there so can't say more. Close to the main street area yet back enough for peace and tranquility.
