Circa 1865. Rev. Amos Wheeler, minister at Bowdoin College, once owned this welcoming Federal-style home, with its shuttered, many-paned windows, large lawn and shade trees. It is in the National Register of Historic Places. Plaid sofas next to a fireplace invite guests to relax, and there are cozy corners for conversation, games and quilting. Guest rooms feature country curtains, quilts and hardwood floors. A popular breakfast dish, often served fireside in the dining room, is puff pancakes with fresh fruit, omelettes and bacon. (In summer, the porch is the breakfast spot.) Fresh rhubarb crisp is offered for desert. Summer theater is offered at Bowdoin College, a mile away. Popham Beach and Freeport are nearby.

Excellent, cozy home!

We stayed at the Black Lantern for three nights and four days. It is the perfect location! Judy and Tom are perfect hosts (and cooks!) and their home is clean, cozy and inviting. I would recommend this to anyone looking to vacation in the mid-Maine region! The location is also very accessible from 295 and very close to Freeport, Portland, and Popham beach.
