Reviewed 10 September 2011

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Elm Cottage-- we only wish we had stayed longer. When we arrived, Janet welcomed us with tea and zucchini bread as well as activity and restaurant recommendations. We stayed in the gardenview room, which was large, clean, comfortable, and cozy. We used the free wifi to plan our days and looked forward to our delicious morning meals with Janet and the other guests.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience briefly staying at the Elm Cottage, a vegan / vegetarian Bed & Breakfast in Searsport, Maine (near Belfast). Meeting the proprietor Janet felt like getting back in touch with a long lost, caring relative. We were extremely late to arrive, and she waited up for us and even called to check on us, then escorted us up to our beautifully decorated room (with private shower/bathroom) for a peaceful evening in.

The next morning, we awoke to her kindness and a breakfast the likes of which I've never seen. Vegan eggs benedict with homemade jam, freshly baked muffins, hot tea and coffee, freshly picked blueberries, and more! Just thinking about it is making me hungry. Everything was a treat.

Janet introduced us to her various rescued pets around the house; her passion is clearly animal rescue! Her kind heart shines in everything she does, and every treasure in the house (from an original Alexander Calder serigraph to all kinds of interesting books!). We strolled around the grounds and indulged in Maine's beautiful coast, breathing the fresh air and enjoying the quiet.

We cherished our time at the Elm Cottage & would recommend any animal lover / vegan / vegetarian check it out for a totally unique B&B experience. Her clean, warm cottage was very inviting and helped make our cross-country trip very memorable. And I wish I had Janet's recipes!

I do not have a negative thing to say about Elm Cottage. Everything was amazing from the cozy decor, friendly host, delicious and over-the-top breakfast and beautiful scenery! Janet is a excellent cook and the breakfast really was a feast. She's also very sweet and friendly, willing to help find things to do in the area, and overall, a very kind lady. She's not the type of host that will show you where your room is and then you don't see her until you leave. She makes your company feel appreicated. There is lots to do in the area. Nearby Belfast is a very cute old town with nice restaurants and spots to walk along the water. Acadia National Park is also just a short drive away and is very beautiful! I'd highly recomment Elm Cottage!

A three night stay over 4th of July weekend. The place is tastefully decorated, very low doily quotient, with good sized rooms and a wonderful host. I'm not a vegan and am a bit of a foodie but I was more than impressed. Janet is a great host and can be quite accommodating.

Janet was an absolute dear! Besides her adorable b&b being right near the sea, the best thing about staying at Elm's Cottage was the food, of course, and Janet's company. The beds were amazingly soft..sweet dreams are sure to be had by anyone who visits!
