Martha's sits on the nicest beach on Big Corn and is a quaint enough little place. However we did not have a good experience at all.. We took a small room with our family to wait for a bigger one to open up the next day, which is fine. But our shower did not work at all! They didn't know... More

It's been almost a year and a half since we have been to Martha's Bed and Breakfast… I will tell you, hands down, best place on the island to stay. Martha is beyond kind and the service is impeccable. Ellery is hilarious and the people that don't understand his "tell it like it is" attitude should take a hike. We... More

We were personally greeted upon our arrival by Ellery. Martha and Ellery were very kind and responded to any questions about the island. Hot water and comfortable beds! Our breakfast and the lobster lunch was delicious! I highly recommend staying here with a view of the best beach on the island. Thanks Martha and Ellery we will be back!

I was surprised by this little B&B! I stayed at Martha's with 3 friends for 2 nights. We had a room with 1 double bed and one twin, with an attached bathroom. I was pleasantly surprised to see that we had a AC unit that worked great, and hot showers every day (apparently not always the norm on the island).... More

Travelers Beware! It can be difficult to get cash at the only ATM on Big Corn Island. Along with several other frustrated visitors to Big Corn, we found that many of the hotels/B&B's, etc. do not readily accept credit cards. We had little cash and there were 5 people in our group, including a 3-year old. We hired a driver... More

This small hotel is run by Martha and Ellery Foster. The hotel is beautiful and immaculately maintained. Their on-site restaurant services a limited menu of delicious meals, featuring seafood -- fish, shrimp, local lobster -- all at very reasonable prices. The breakfast included with the rooms is delicious and includes plenty of fresh fruit and local coca bread. The beach... More

Martha's was a great little surprise for us. The B&B was more like a small Hoiday Inn, but don't let that prevent you from staying here. The grounds are beautiful, and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. The rooms are extremely clean, and safe. AC was free. The prices were really good. The manager who greeted us was... More
