Description

Circa 1849. The Brunswick Bed & Breakfast, a Greek Revival-style home, overlooks the town green. Guests often relax in one of the two front parlors, with their inviting fireplaces. Summertime guests enjoy the wraparound front porch. Rooms are filled with antiques, collectibles and quilts. In the years that the bed & breakfast served as a family home for law professor Daniel Stanwood, the home was host to an array of famed personalities, including Edna St. Vincent Millay, Thornton Wilder and Admiral Richard Byrd. Ice skating in the "mall" across the street is a popular winter activity. Freeport, only a 10-minute drive, is perfect for shoppers, and several state parks are nearby. Bowdoin College is a short walk away from the inn.

Historic Interest

The Main Inn building was built in 1849 in the Greek Revival Style as a private residence for Mr. Bowker, the local carriage builder. In the 1920s a Bowdoin Professor added a very large addition to the building to be used as his law library and office.

Bowdoin's Most Beautiful B&B

When we entered this beautiful inn, located just about three blocks from the entrance to Bowdoin College, we could not help but be impressed by the combination of impeccable taste balanced with hominess -- from the beamed ceilings, the rooms filled with paintings by local artists, the brick fireplaces and the hand-carved bar in the dining room, the common areas (including a front porch fringed with local flowers and grape vines) are lovely. The bedroom was spacious, sunny and beautifully decorated with lots of closet and drawer space. In addition to an amazing country breakfast, the inn occassionally sponsors music and arts events held on premesis, is close to Maine State Theatre's summer stock company (we saw SPAMALOT and loved it), and is directly across from a green where the town offers concerts on the lawn and a Farmer's Market! I can't imagine a more perfect bed and breakfast experience. What a lovely few days of Americana at its best!
