Small inn with character and welcoming hosts
Quaint and quiet, James Place Inn is a relaxing place to get away for a weekend or longer vacation. Open year-round, the inn offers close proximity to the beaches in the summer, the mountains in the winter, and and shopping in Freeport all year long.
There are only seven guest rooms here, and that means that the inn will never be crowded. There is one common room here, as well as the porch during warmer weather. Breakfast is the most bustling time of day, as the dining room fills with guests looking forward to homemade pancakes, granola, scones, and more.
Minutes from all the shopping of central Freeport
James Place Inn is located on a quiet residential street about 100 yards away from the center of outlet shopping in Freeport, Maine. The inn is a few minutes walk from the LL Bean flagship store that is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Along Main Street there are several other stores including J.Crew, Gap, Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, and more.
The excitement of city life is nearby in Portland, where top attractions include the historic Old Port district along the harbor and the Arts District along Congress Street for food, shopping, and sightseeing.
Quaint rooms with individual personality
Each room at James Place Inn is decorated in its own unique way. Rooms are named after the color of the walls that inspires the rest of the decor. In this historic Victorian house, each room has a different size and shape. Tall travelers might prefer to avoid the Blue Room for its shower with a slanted ceiling. Guests can choose a room for decor, size, and the presence of soaking tubs, fireplaces, or private balconies.
