In 2015 we are celebrating our 10th year in the Englishman's Bed and Breakfast, formally the historic Archibald-Adams House built in 1793. This Federal-style home was renovated  and restored to museum quality in the 1990s. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and today offers a unique lodging experience. Cherryfield itself is a picturesque and historic village spread out along the Narraguagus River but retaining a core of historic homes that comprise the Historic District.

The Englishman’s Bed and Breakfast has a beautiful setting on the bank of the Narraguagus River, a once noted Salmon/Trout River in the tidewater village of Cherryfield, Maine. At the front of the house is a formally laid out perennial flower garden with classical urns. North of the house and semi-circular driveway is a screened-in gazebo and a vegetable garden with raised beds, as well as other plantings including grape vines, raspberries and several fruit trees. Below the house, along the river banks, there is our wild area where bald eagles and ospreys perch in the old trees in the spring.

Not far from us are a great many hiking trails and preserve land on which you can appreciate the unspoiled Maine coast that so inspires artists, writers and outdoor-lovers. Many of the trails are also great birdwatching locations  Click here to read about Birdwatching Downeast. Take one of several local boat tours or windjammer rides and see whales, eagles, seals, puffins, islands and lighthouses.

Your hosts, Peter and Kathy Winham, first met in York, England on an archaeological excavation. Both have worked on many an excavation in England, Europe and the USA.
