It’s August 31, and that means that in the very Northeastern part of our country, including in Maine, temperatures are already starting to drop and leaves will start to change in just a couple of weeks. The first foliage reports for Maine begin around September 15, so you’d better get moving!
Check out these Maine-area hotels and bed & breakfasts for cozy, warm places to stay during your leaf peeping jaunts. I tried to pick ones that have some character.
Northwest and Northeast Maine Hotels (Hurry! Peak foliage is as early as September 30)
Old Iron Inn – adorable B&B, looks like big red barn!
Northeastland Hotel – great location, friendly staff
Central Maine Hotels (Peak foliage is around second week in October)
Second Street Bed & Breakfast - class Colonial home, about 30 minutes from Augusta
Ware Street Inn – classic bed & breakfast
Mountain Village Inn – more of an estate feel, gorgeous surroundings
Southern/Coastal Maine Hotels (Peak foliage is second half of October)
Greystone Bed & Breakfast – close to the water, 1840 Greek Revival home with large rocking chair porch
Brunswick Inn on Park Row – routinely rated one of Maine’s best
Hopefully, these Maine hotels and Bed & Breakfasts will get you started. Book soon though, the season is changing quickly! Can’t stop thinking about having some clam chowder on a big rocking chair front porch at one of these hotels…
