We chose Ogunquit as the end of our New England leaf peeping junket. Hartwell House had great reviews, so we thought we'd check it out. The reviews were spot on! Location,location,location! Great for walking to Perkins Cove, Marginal Way, and many restaurants and shops. We stayed in the "Main House", and it was absolutely great. Old world charm, and decorated... More

We loved our stay here. The owners are lucky to have such good and committed inn keepers. They go above and beyond to make sure everyone is enjoying their stay. The breakfast is like eating at a five star restaurant. We are not big fans of B&B's but this one is unique and an exception to the rule for us.... More

We were traveling down the Maine coast and discovered the Hartwell Inn. Located in a quiet neighborhood only a .7 mile walk to downtown (which is impossible to park at) and about a blocks walk to Perkins Cover ($12 parking charge) and the Marginal Way coast walk, the location couldn't have been more convenient. Our innkeeper Charlene made us feel... More

We are so blessed with our perfect location at the Hartwell House Inn - and so many of our guests park their cars when they arrive, and stay on foot until they leave. As you mentioned, especially in the busy months, parking in our beautiful little town can be an expensive trial - but our central location alleviates that for... More

Beautiful accommodations, decorated with antiques, both the common rooms and each guest room. Lovely grounds. Every room is different. Wonderful breakfasts, custom-made every morning. Loved the blackberry brandy in the room. We stayed at the main building, so breakfast was right downstairs, but the other building is very close by, across the street. Great location, you can walk to everything... More

Hartwell House on Shore Drive in the cute touristy town of Ogunquit and Perkins Harbor won't disappoint! Charlene and Eric Taubert are perfect Innkeepers for the Hartwell family. Eric cooks breakfast, Charlene bakes amazing treats. They have a spotless and adorable B&B and they couldn't be more cheerful, friendly and helpful.

Eric and Charlene, as well as the entire staff welcomed us to this wonderful B&B! Breakfast was excellent- make sure you order the blueberry pancakes. Stacy is great while Natalia added her personality and humor to personalized service. We highly recommend this destination!

Everything about the Hartwell House was excellent. The rooms were large, well decorated, and spotless (even the private bathroom). The bottle of brandy in the room was an added bonus.
