I needed to travel by myself to Topsham for a family medical problem and have never stayed in a lodging alone. As an older woman travelling by myself, I was NOT going to stay in a Motel. I was so pleased to find a B&B in Topsham near my folks. The experience was perfect. I was totally comfortable, felt welcome...

We had a nice 2-day get-away at the Black Lantern and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Tom and Judy have the knack for top notch hospitality - their home is warm and welcoming and the dogs are great! I highly recommend this lovely B&B!

The Black Lantern is a sweet B&B with charming hosts who made us feel very welcome and served a delicious breakfast. We had the smallest room, but it was very nice. The bathroom was compact, but very clean. We also got excellent recommendations for travel in Mid-coast Maine from the owner.

We had a wonderful time at Black Lantern -- comfortable, clean rooms, satisfying breakfasts, good location, genial hosts. In short, everything one could ask for in a B&B! I got good recommendations on where to do morning runs. Bathroom was a bit small, but everything worked great. We would definitely return if the occasion arises!

Thank you for your kind review. I apologize for the delay in responding to your comment regarding permitting guests to smoke outdoors on the property. While we do allow guests to smoke outside very few do and we are sorry that you felt inconvenienced by one of our guests. We do have several locations with seating overlooking the river as...
