A Pet Friendly Bed and Breakfast in the Mountains of Western Maine
Located in the serene and verdant mountains of western Maine between Rumford, Bethel and Andover, Mountain Spring Farm is a small and intimate Bed and Breakfast Inn. Our location is excellent for those visitors wishing to experience the brilliant Maine Fall foliage, the wild beauty of the Maine Forests, the peacefulness of a bicycle ride down a country road to a covered bridge or those wishing a more private retreat after skiing or enjoying various winter sports in the area. We are pet friendly and also welcome larger groups and teams coming for the various snow events in the area.

We are across the street from the main hiking trail to White Cap Mountain
The Farmhouse : The farmhouse was built in 1829 and has been lovingly updated without sacrificing its charm. We have two guestrooms with private baths and four rooms which share a bath, a great room with TV, DVD/VCR, Wifi, fireplace and games. The farm has pure mountain water which has been piped from the mountain directly into the living room and it provides us with clear, clean and continuously running ice cold drinking water. We make space available for Nordic Skiers to wax their skis and there is plenty of room for parking of snow mobile trailers.
