Step back into the 19th century in this large, gracious 1846 Victorian home, just two blocks up from Eastport Maine's Historic District Waterfront. Our historic B&B inn accommodations are a wonderful lodging alternative to local hotels or motels. Victorian buffs will be delighted with the ornately carved, marble-topped furniture, knick knacks and books with which the builder, Benjamin F. Milliken, furnished his home, and which he left intact. Mr. Milliken maintained a wharf on Eastport's busy waterfront from which he serviced the tall ships that used the harbor for a flourishing international trade throughout the 1800's.
The Milliken House Bed and Breakfast offers elegant accommodations and a restful, comfortable B&B atmosphere. Guests may enjoy a complimentary glass of port or sherry in the large double living room, containing two marble fireplaces where there is cable television, board games, and a fire on coldish days. There are five guest rooms on the second and third floors, uniquely furnished with lovely Victorian Renaissance and Eastlake furniture and decorated with the mementos left behind by the Milliken family. Bed-side chocolates and fresh flowers in season welcome guests to their rooms.
The Milliken House is noted for its breakfasts, which are sumptuous, and as elegant as the heavy carved dining room furniture from which they are served. Delicious buttermilk pancakes served with a variety of fruit sauces made from native island berries and topped with whipped cream; blueberry crepes; and Quiche Lorraine number among the many specialties of the Milliken House, always accompanied by beautiful fresh fruit trays and homemade breads and sweetbreads.
