We spent three nights at the Black Boar Inn, and had a fabulous time! The location is fantastic - walking distance to everything. Dwain and John were terrific and helpful hosts - steered us to restaurants and hiking trails that were perfect. The room was lovely, clean, and comfortable. We felt very at home. Breakfasts were GREAT. They even have beach towels and sunscreen for guest use. I highly recommend the Black Boar Inn - we will stay here again.
The ONLY thing I recommend is - if you are a light sleeper - ask for a room in the back of the Inn (not overlooking the street) OR plan to use your air conditioner at night to create white noise. Ogunquit has an active nightlife, and one of the three nights we stayed, there was a loud group across the street that stayed up talking and laughing well past 2:30 AM. Once turned on our AC, we were fine - it was only loud when we had the windows open.
Again - no hesitation about recommending Black Boar. We had a GREAT long weekend!
- 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
