F.A.Q.

Can we bring our dog with us to stay at the Guilford Bed and Breakfast?


We love dogs. Snickers, an Entlebucher cattle dog, is our full-time canine greeter who has the run of the place. He is friendly, well-behaved and trained to stay within the confines of our fenceless yard. Unfortunately, however, our home and property is not currently configured to accept guest pets at this time as there is no way to keep the animals separated from each other.




Do you have onsite parking for trailers?


Yes, but please let us know in advance if this is the case.




Do you have air-conditioning?


Guest bedrooms are equipped with window air conditioning units during summer months.




Do you have a microwave available for guest use?


Not at this time, but possibly some time in the future.




Do you have a refrigerator available for guest use?


There is an under-the-counter refrigerator in the front foyer and a mini-fridge on the second floor under the Keurig station. Both units are shared by other guests so please bare this in mind should you need to refrigerate something.




What time is breakfast?


We typically serve breakfast at 8:00 a.m. but we do try to accommodate guest schedules. With 24-hour notice, a special Grab-N-Go breakfast may be available for guests who must leave before 7 a.m.




Is ice available?


Yes, we are happy to provide you with an ice bucket upon request. We also have wine bottle openers and wine glasses for you to use as needed. Just ask.




Do you have any guest rooms on the first floor?


Unfortunately, no. This is a historic home and all four guest rooms are located on the second floor. One guest room is located on the third floor.




Do you have on-site laundry services?


For those staying with us three nights or more, we can offer an onsite laundry service (wash/dry/fold). Alternatively, you may choose to use the public laundry facility located at the Red Maple, a two-minute drive away.




Do you offer transportation to and from the Bangor airport?


Fortunately, your host, Michael, is also an UBER driver. He can generally make himself available on Saturdays and Sundays, and also M-F 3:30 p.m. -9:00 p.m. provided arrangements are made far enough in advance. Call 207-876-3477 to for additional details.




Is it customary to tip when staying at a bed and breakfast?


Many guests staying multiple nights choose to tip to show their appreciation for all the little things that made them feel extra-special during their stay. It’s not expected, but it is highly appreciated.




Is there a curfew?


We don’t have a curfew here as we expect our guests to be responsible and respectful of others during their stay. Guests typically receive a key upon check-in (3-7 pm) so they can come and go on their own time with the understanding that they will lock the door behind them and if returning late, will be quiet so as to not wake other guests.




What is your cancellation policy?


Cancellations received 14 or more days prior to the first evening booked is eligible for a full refund minus a $20.00 processing fee. Cancellations received 7-13 days prior is eligible for a 50% refund of the total reservation cost. Cancellations made less than 7 days in advance are not eligible for a refund.




Do you recycle?


Yes, there are certain beverage cans and bottles that are recyclable in our area and we take advantage of that service regularly. Guests will not find "recycle" bins in our public areas because we handle all that behind the scenes for them.
