“An amazing place!”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Bufflehead Cove was everything we were hoping for and more. Erin and his mother couldn't have been more helpful or gracious. They made it their mission to make sure that we had a wonderful stay in the Balcony Room and their hospitality was warm and heartfelt. The room was incredible, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast that was brought up to our room and enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the river. We were looking for an Italian restaurant to try and Erin suggested Varano's in Wells Beach, which proved to be a great choice. My wife enjoyed the in-room jacuzzi and we both slept soundly in the big, comfortable king bed. Although the inn was fully booked, it was one of the most peaceful, quiet stays we have ever had anywhere. The river views were outstanding and we would love to return again in the fall and enjoy the foliage in a room with a fireplace. We also ran into a family of ducks that visits the Inn daily to eat the bird foood that Erin puts out for them. This was our first stay in a B&B. It won't be our last. We would love to stay in all five of the inn's rooms and the adjoining cottage looks wonderful as well. Staying at Bufflehead was the highlight of our three-day getaway to the beautiful southern coast of Maine.

Room Tip: The balcony room has a glassed-in balcony tha overlooks the river. The room also has a jacuzzi tub...

I am so happy that I found this place. My husband and I spent our honeymoon here and we could not have asked for anything better. We stayed in the balcony room and it was so beautiful and comfortable, the weather was not the best when we were there so we stayed in and it was so cozy with the fireplace and the jacuzzi tub. The staff here are more than welcoming and it was nice to come back from a day out and be greeted by a kind face. The breakfast was our favorite, the presentation and the food was AMAZING! Please check this place out you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: The Balcony room has the first light of the day and is huge!

Erin was the kindest,most generous host. he couldnt do enough for my husband and myself, he was always there when you needed him and yet wasnt in your way. he would do anything for you wait on you, plan your day, make reservations,directions to area places . the inn is scrumptious, the breakfasts were to die for. it was so quiet and serene exactly what my husband and i needed at this point in our lives, the wildlife was amazing. the view from our window was so calming. our room was so comfortable like being home. having breakfast on the porch every morning was amazing. we will come back here again and again

Room Tip: the cove room is beautful we would like to try the balcony room next time or the garden room

This was a lovely getaway -- beautiful location, lovely inn, delicious breakfast, enjoyable company, comfortable room! It couldn't have been better. We enjoyed the before-dinner wine and cheese and had a very nice time visiting with the other guests. We felt lucky to find this place.

Harriett was an incredible host and she made sure that every single guest in the house felt welcome. The rooms themselves were stunning - they had the old historic charm - yet they were beautifully updated with really comfortable bedding, clean and beautiful towels, wonderful accessories and everything else you can imagine.

The inn sits on a private cove and has beautiful views from all rooms. also has canoes and kayaks for river riding.

close to good restaurants, bars and small town activity.

Breakfast was really really good - however it was not great. It was made to order, was unique and tasted excellent. Plenty of juices and coffee and tea. I am keeping one star as I would have liked to see a bigger array of breads and croissants and bakery and perhaps pancakes and or crepes in the breakfast mix.

The whole experience was absolutely phenomenal and I will definitely go back and stay here again.

Room Tip: Cove room has jacuzzi right in the room itself. Garden room had private entrance and perfect if you...

The last time I was here, and many, many times prior to that, I had the feeling that they have reached the limit - Harriet, Jim, Erin and friends cannot make a weekend stay at their B & B any better, more luxurious, more relaxing, more welcoming. (I've been coming an average of several times a season every year since 1985.) Well, this year - this past weekend was this Year's opening - there were incredible Turkish towels, twice as thick and soft as any others I've seen; there are new showers; and a huge cookie jar in the dining room always full of enormous home made chocolate chip cookies and a 2 ft high candy dish filed to the brim with jelly beans. And they were as gracious as always. Before we left we made reservations for a weekend later this year.

Room Tip: The Balcony Room is large, bright, has a terrific view and a huge jacuzzi.

We traveled to Maine for our honeymoon this past October and spent the first night here. We should have stayed the whole week. Our room (The Hideaway) was beautiful, the house was gorgeous and the hosts were wonderful. We arrived later in the evening and was recommended a wonderful place for dinner. We awoke to coffee on our porch in the morning and ate an amazing breakfast outdoors where we enjoyed a breathtaking view. We will never ever forget this place and are hoping to come back every year for our anniversary.
