Main Street B&B is a charming, large, classic New England homestead, the original portion built in 1820 by Dr. Reuel Barrows, one of the founding members of the Fryeburg Temperance Union. Succeeding generations of families built additions to accommodate their growing needs.
Recently restored by its new owner, Main Street B&B offers a peaceful haven. Beautifully decorated bedrooms and modern bathrooms assure your comfort. A delicious breakfast is served indoors or outdoors as the season and weather permits.
Although Main Street B&B is situated on 15 acres overlooking the intervale with a spectacular view of Mt. Kearsarge and the eastern flank of the White Mountains, it is a few short steps to the center of town.
Fryeburg is located on the western boundary of Maine in an area providing exciting year round outdoor activities. Within fifteen minutes you can enjoy skiing at Shawnee Peak or Mt. Cranmore, canoeing and kayaking on the Saco River, cross country, hiking and snowmobile trails, and tax free factory outlets in North Conway.
Main Street B&B is one hour from Portland, two and one half hours from Boston, and six hours from New York. We are within walking distance to the Fryeburg Fair.
We serve a full breakfast, and are committed to using organic and local produce whenever possible. With advance notice we're happy to accommodate special dietary needs.
Fryeburg Maine is named for General Joseph Frye who gained distinction during the French and Indian War. In 1763 Frye was given a land grant by the Provence of Massachusetts for Distinguished Service, and he began to lay out the town into seven forty acre lots. The town of Fryeburg was incorporated in 1777. This makes Fryeburg the oldest town in the White Mountains and older than Oxford County, in which it resides. Today Fryeburg has a population of just over 3000 residents and is home to Fryeburg Academy and The Fryeburg Fair. Fryeburg's unassuming charm offers visitors a peaceful alternative to the hustle and bustle of North Conway, New Hampshire while preserving access to the White Mountain's amenities.
From skiing and snowmobiling, kayaking and canoeing, to theater arts, fine dining, local farms, and fall foliage, Fryeburg, located on the border of Maine and New Hampshire is an ideal place around which to plan your holiday. We are centrally located to take advantage of the quiet of traditional Maine, with easy access to the shops of North Conway. And, of course, we are just steps from Fryeburg Academy and the Fryeburg Fair.
