We have taken the lead from our sister properties, Newagen Seaside Inn, Linekin Bay Resort, and Sheepscot Harbour Village Resort, to provide Mainers a safe way to travel this June. In order to give Maine residents an opportunity to relax and recharge on the Maine coast, for the month of June we are offering a chance to “pay what you can” to stay at our charming and relaxing coastal Maine bed and breakfast!

With out-of-state visitors not able to keep their June reservations, we find ourselves with rooms available. We want to give Mainers a two-night (or more) staycation that fits the current family budget. You name the price!

The health and safety of our guests and staff our top priority.  You can find a cozy spot at The Russell House Bed & Breakfast – curl up with a good book in the lounge, relax in an Adirondack on the large outdoor deck, enjoy quiet time in your room, or take a ride into downtown Boothbay Harbor for a stroll – while safely practicing physical distancing. We are implementing all the new housekeeping protocols, check-in protocols including temperature checks, and much more to make our bed and breakfast safe to visit. Our main goal is the safety of our staff and guests. We look forward to welcoming you!

To apply, please fill out the form below and hit submit; it’s that easy! We have extended the promotion and are now accepting applications for the month of June and July!  We will accept applications through June 29 and guests will be notified if their application was accepted no later than June 30 for July stays. We will do our best to accommodate as many guests as possible!

This offer is only valid for residents living in Maine who have been quarantined in the state for at least 14 days. Your accepted rate is based on double occupancy and includes a continental breakfast. Our per room occupancy is max two persons per room based on terms of licensing. Rate will be subject to 9% lodging tax.
