History of Lake House Bed and Breakfast

Built in the 1790’s, LAKE HOUSE Bed and Breakfast was the first tavern in Waterford, Maine. It is surrounded by white clapboard houses, all of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

  • LAKE HOUSE Bed and Breakfast was the first building built in Waterford “Flat”. The year was 1797. It was constructed by Eli Longley, a prominent businessman, who operated the property as a tavern and an inn.
  • In 1847 the Inn became known as the Maine Hygienic Institute for Ladies.
  • LAKE HOUSE Bed and Breakfast was turned into a successful hotel in the late 1880’s, and was privy to such famous guests as Mickey Rooney, Claudette Colbert and Judy Garland.
  • Now the LAKE HOUSE Bed and Breakfast offers seven distinctive guest rooms for our guests to choose from, each faithfully restored keeping the original look and feel of the house in tact, while blending in the modern conveniences of today.

Wonderfully restored and capturing all of the charm of it’s historic beginnings, LAKE HOUSE Bed and Breakfast is perfectly situated in the famous Lakes Region of Western Maine. You can enjoy the cry of the loons, the peacefulness of the surroundings and yet you are so close to all the attractions of Waterford, the Mount Washington Valley, and the Maine Coast.
