We were lucky to be able to score a room for the night with little more than an hour's notice, and couldn't have been happier. Terrific location within easy walking distance of the beach, shops and restaurants, yet just far enough away from the busy buzz during high season. Room was quiet and comfortable, amenities spot on (loved the shower!), and John and Dwain were welcoming, helpful hosts who cook up some mean blueberry pancakes to boot. Our only regret was not having been able to stay longer to test out the beach chairs + towels that are available to all of the guests. We look forward to making a return trip.
- 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
