Are you getting married somewhere between Freeport and Camden? If so, you're going to need lodging options for your out-of-town guests, maybe even for you, if you're having a destination Maine wedding. While hotels are easy to come by in Portland, they're harder to find along the coastline and in the smaller coastal towns.
I’m going to make your life so much easier by giving you many of the lodging options that exist in this part of Maine. If you’re looking for places to stay in Midcoast Maine, this is the post for you! Whether you’re looking for hotels, motels, bed and breakfasts, or inns, you’ll find what you need in this blog post.
I’m a Maine wedding officiant who blogs for couples getting married and especially for couples getting married in Maine. Because I live in Maine, I’ve never stayed at any of the following places, unless noted. I’m providing this as a resource for you, not as an endorsement. Carefully reads all reviews and make an informed decision on where to have your guests stay during your wedding. I tried to only include venues with a 4-star rating or higher.
Places to stay in Freeport
Kendall Tavern B&B Owners, Nancy and Mark are wonderful and the rooms are clean and beautiful.
Places to stay in Brunswick
The Daniel I’ve been here many times for meetings, lunches or just for drinks. Great staff and always very clean.

Places to stay in Edgecomb + Wiscasset
Wiscasset Woods Lodge New owner (as of 2015), Saundra, is wonderful. She and her husband have worked very hard to bring this classic lodge back to life.
Cod Cove Inn One of the only inns with multiple rooms in this part of the coast so it books up quickly!
