Michael and Wendy at the Guilford Bed and Breakfast (GBNB) cater specifically to other adults who share our passion for delicious food, art and architecture, literature and history, travel and dogs. If you prefer to stay in a place with charm and one-of-a-kind character, the GBNB is the place for you. We offer fresh, unique breakfasts prepared specifically to boost and energize our guests to set them up for a fantastic day. 

The lovely, award-winning Guilford Bed and Breakfast was originally built as a private residence in 1902 in the Colonial Revival style. For over thirty years, this architectural beauty has been inviting guests from around the world to the historic mill town of Guilford, Maine. 

Step inside and experience the classic elegance and charming craftsmanship of a bygone era and wake up each morning to a unique (and surprisingly healthy) gourmet breakfast. Sleep comfortably in one of four vintage-style guest rooms and focus on writing your great American novel, or grab a blanket and a book and get cozy on the chaise lounge in front of the fireplace in the library. Check out the secret art inside the fireplace and discover how it relates to the hand-painted wall mural on the second floor. Steal away and experience that which sooths, inspires, and challenges your heart, mind and soul. Whatever your focus, come and enjoy your respite at the GBNB in the scenic Maine Highlands.
