About the Inn Keepers
Nancy and Mark were life-long residents of Massachusetts when they met while working at a non-profit, Nancy as a professional fundraiser and Mark as a media and political consultant. It was after almost 20 years in the fundraising arena that Nancy realized that the time was at hand to turn that gift of event planning and entertaining toward fulfilling a life-long dream of owning a Bed and Breakfast. Marks’ years working as a journalist and in the political arena, followed by more years in advertising, have prepared him well to help make that dream a reality.
After 2 years of searching, the perfect opportunity presented itself with the purchase of the Kendall Tavern Inn Bed and Breakfast in Freeport ME. No strangers to Maine - Nancy’s parents live near Rockland and the family owns a summer place in Union - they are happy share their knowledge of the local communities and activities of Mid-Coast Maine.
We can't say enough good things about our stay with Mark and Nancy. First off, we had a lovely room and felt very comfortable throughout our stay. We had our own bathroom (yay!) so we didn't feel like we were creeping around a strangers house at night or anything like that. Nancy had yummy baked goods out in the afternoon and made us AWESOME breakfasts both mornings we were there. Both Mark and Nancy were super accommodating to our needs and made some great recommendations on things to do locally. To be honest, the best part about our stay was how great Mark and Nancy were. They are both so mellow and friendly, and they were fine with our weirdo senses of humor. We didn't feel like we were staying with strangers, and that's just totally awesome. They also made sure to (very adorably) embarrass me on my birthday which, let's be real, is the closest to staying with family you can possible get. We will definitely be staying here again. No reason to stay at a big chain hotel when you can just stay here.”

Oh man! The food is great. Each morning we were delighted with unique and delicious 3-course meals. The hosts go over and beyond to make sure you're comfortable and have a good time. They provide many amenities such as wifi, which was an unfortunate necessity for me since I had to bit of school work on our vacation. The hosts also told great stories and made you feel like you were their favorite guests.
The guests were nice too. There was a friendly group of young professionals, young families, and regulars to the Kendall tavern making for delightful morning conversation. The grounds were also perfect for being swarmed by butterflies in the yard or watching the stars from the front porch.
This was our first visit to Maine and we are determined to make a visit to the Kendall Tavern a regular trip.
Thanks, Kendall Tavern!

My husband and I stayed while we shopped in Freeport. Mark and Nancy were the perfect hosts, from the warm and humorous greeting to the fresh baked goods (always present and yummy) this was the perfect get away. The entire Inn is immaculate and the food is amazing. We left knowing we would book here again soon and recommend it to family and friends!
"First Time In Maine"

Nancy and Mark made our stay extra special. The time we spent chatting and relaxing in their B & B made for a memorable trip to Freeport. The location was very convenient. We were traveling with our adult son and the room was set up nicely for a family. Breakfast was delicious. Service with a smile and a joke (Mark) were a great way to start the day. The entire inn was clean and comfortable. Coffee and bottled water was available day and night. Mark and Nancy had great tips on places to visit and dine. We really wished we had more time to stay. We would certainly come back to this B&B.
Con la mia famiglia abbiamo alloggiato in questo luogo magico. Belle camere pulite ottima colazione. Insomma una vera casa americana come quelle che si vedono nei film. Sarà stata sicuramente anche la magia del Natale che in questo posto è molto sentita sarà anche per il viaggio fatto con tutti i miei cari ma porterò nel cuore il ricordo. I proprietari sono favolosi.
“Amazing stay at Kendall Tavern Inn”
5 of 5 stars
We stayed 7 nights at Kendall Tavern Inn and enjoyed every minute of it. The hosts, Nancy and Mark, are exceedingly gracious and made us feel like family. The breakfasts were incredibly delicious and we looked forward to getting out of bed to eat, even though we are not usually morning people:). They accommodated the dietary allergies of our 10 year old son and made him feel special every day. Nancy and Mark obviously take great pride in this beautiful and historic home, and create a welcoming environment for guests who come to visit. When we are in Maine again, we will certainly stay at Kendall Tavern Inn!
