A good friend was visiting from Seattle and I wanted her to see New England at it's best. There are lots of Bed and Breakfasts in old homes in New England, but very few get it right. John and Dwain do an exceptional job at getting it right! My west coast friend had never stayed in an historic home like this, and the wide plank floors and fireplaces really took us to another time. Dwain and John filled the house with antique peices to set the mood and lovingly showed us the unique details of our room (original wooden shutters that are hidden in the wall and slide out to cover the window if you want to sleep in). When we wanted to meet a friend for a drink in town, they recommended the perfect spot which was only steps away because the Black Boar is right in town. The beach is only steps away, too, of course, so we could walk for miles along the ocean if we wanted to. Beautiful! I will be going back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1674, with a major addition in 1720, The Black Boar Inn is the oldest structure in the Town of Ogunquit and one of the oldest wooden structures in the United States. BBI is located in the heart of the vibrant Village and only a three minute walk to one of the top rated beaches in America. The Inn offers six large bedrooms with queen beds and private en suite bathrooms with modern amenities. The Inn's common rooms (each with fireplace) offers guests with casual places to relax with family and friends.The Inn's history is truly remarkable. King James II of England (14 October 1633 - 16 September 1701) granted a plot of land in what is present day Ogunquit, Maine, to Alexandre Maxwell at some point in the mid-1600s. The Maxwell family built a home on this multi-acre plot in 1674 and lived there for about 100 years. In the mid-1700s, the home became the property of the Littlefield Family (another founding family of Wells/Ogunquit) through marriage to a Maxwell family member. Eddie Littlefield retained ownership until 1997. As the first two families cherished the property and remained ownership each for more than a century, The Black Boar Inn is now owned by only the third family in the structure's 341 year history. This Legacy Property is a truly authentic guest experience and remains a favorite choice of travellers from all parts of the world. ... more less
