  • Introduction

    The Elmere HouseWelcome to The Elmere House Bed and Breakfast of Wells, Maine. Our Grand Opening was in early July 2008, and we had many happy visitors pass through our doors during last season. We are excited about 2013 and hope that you will stay with us. We are close to all the activities and attractions but off in quiet and peaceful setting.

    The Elmere House Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored, historic antique farm house. The interior retains much of charm of the mid-1800's with its warm and cozy furnishings and completely refinished, original wood floors. Yet, you'll find that it has all the amenities and comfort features of a new and modern accommodation.

    All guest rooms have individually controlled air conditioning/heating. All rooms have new large wall-mounted LCD televisions, High Definition DVD players and there is a DVD library available on premises. All rooms have roomy, private baths. Free wireless Internet is available throughout the building. Our first floor room, The Kezar Lake Room, is specially designed for the physically challenged in mind, but is equally comfortable for any guests. All other accommodations are located on the second floor, including the elegant Moosehead Lake Suite.

    The Elmere House Bed & Breakfast is a special place to stay in Southern Maine where you can have all the comfort and special attention of a New England Bed & Breakfast, modern amenities, and also stay close to the many nearby seacoast attractions and activities. We are within 5 miles of six of the finest beaches in Maine. Visit us soon!
