We have been coming to Ocean Park for twenty years, and have stayed in most accomodations over the years, but once we found Billowhouse we knew we were home! Mary and Judi are warm, welcoming, and always seem to remember the personal preferences of returning guests! We have stayed in a guesthouse room most years with a great view of...

Been coming to the Billow House with my Mother and Grandmother for ages, recently my boyfriend has also been accompanying us. I love everything about it. When I fantasize about owning my own B&B this is exactly what I picture.

We have been coming here twice a year for the past 10 years. Never disappointed. Have stayed in almost all of the rooms but love the efficiency rooms with a view of the sea. We are truly part of the family and look forward to our week long vacations. Mary and Judy greet us with open arms and hugs and...

I stayed here in May of 2009, so it was the shoulder season. We got lucky and got one of their oceanfront rooms. They had treats in the afternoon for everybody in their little guest kitchen. They kept things in there for you to eat any time, too, like peanutbutter and locally made maple cream from the Ocean Park Gift...

Mary and Judi are always so welcoming - with open arms. Each summer there are young housekeepers from around the world who are always so friendly and helpful. I love my room overlooking the ocean and sand dunes - and the balcony right outside my room. If I don't feel like going to the beach I can sit on my...

The Billowhouse is a secret. Once you visit though, you will be treated like the best of family. There are places to stay on the maine coast, but not like this place. This is a refuge for the mind, and rejuvenation of your spirit. If you want to stay as a couple, or scoop on of your kids or two...

We stayed here for a 3 nights, in one of the chalets. It was exactly what we were hoping for. A quiet retreat overlooking the beach. We were able to put the coffee on in the mornings, then take a sunrise stroll along the beach before returning for the coffee and breakfast. We did have some rain but that did...

When I stayed at the BillowHouse it felt like I was inside a magnificent storybook. My room with it's views of the majestic Atlantic Ocean was so cozy. I sat on my Queen Anne style bed and sipped warm lavendar tea as I gazed out of the windows. Later I spent time sitting on the balcony and breathing the crisp...

I felt so welcome at the Billowhouse. I would definitely go back. It's a great location- far enough away from The Pier/Amusement Park for peace and quiet, but not too far (15 minute walk) for some activity during the summer season. The house is so charming, and everything you need for a home away from home is there. Internet on...
