Rates vary by season.
Deposit: For a two-night stay or longer, a 50% deposit is required. Payment in full is required for single-night stays.
Cancellation: Because of Maine’s short summer season and the inn’s limited size, cancellations have a big effect on our livelihood. If cancellations are received more than 14 days before your reservation date, your full deposit (minus a $25.00 administrative fee) will be refunded. For cancellations that occur less than 14 days before your reservation date, any deposits will be forfeited unless we are able to rebook your room. No refund will be offered for early check-outs or no-shows. Reservation dates may be changed with no additional charges.
Gift Cards: Gift cards are accepted and any amount can be applied to your total balance due. Please let us know that you will be using a gift card when you make your reservations, and present your gift card(s) when you check in. Gift cards will not be accepted for your room deposit.
Check-In: Regular check-in time is between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Please contact us in advance of your stay to arrange for an early or late arrival.
Check-Out: Your guestroom must be vacated by 11:00 a.m. for housekeeping purposes. However, you are welcome to remain at the inn in any of our common areas or on the grounds as late as you like.
Children: Some of our rooms are ideal for families with children. Please call to discuss which will be appropriate for your needs.
Smoking: Victorian by the Sea is a tobacco-free dwelling, including on the veranda. If we determine that a guest has smoked while in their room, a $200.00 cleaning fee will be charged. The grounds and the gazebo are appropriate for smoking; however, we ask that you not leave waste in the gazebo or on the ground.
Pets: The Cottage Room is the only pet-friendly guestroom. A $15.00 per day charge will be applied to your balance. Pets are welcome in the Cottage Room and on the grounds, but they are not allowed in the public rooms or other guest rooms of the B&B.
We do have two Inn cats. Tommy is a shy gray tabby with white chest and paws, and Willie has short black fur with beautiful green eyes. In spite of their names, both are females. They live in the Owners Quarters and are not allowed in the inn’s common rooms or guest rooms. But you may meet them while on the porch enjoying the sunshine and bay views.
