For whatever reason, the majority of the hotels in Bangor Maine are chain hotels. A good portion of the hotels in Bangor Maine are located on a strip near the airport. Comfort Suites, Super 8, Ramada, Howard Johnson and others all have lodging at the airport. While it may be lacking in charm, a Bangor airport hotel is an appreciated convenience when you arrive on a late flight to Maine. You might also stay at a Bangor airport hotel if you have an early flight the next morning. Additionally, if you choose a Bangor airport hotel, it might be less expensive than the hotels in Bangor Maine that are located closer to the city center.
For those of you who want to explore the more classic New England style of hotels in Bangor Maine, there are a few to take a look at. The Charles Inn is a downtown Bangor hotel. Its brick building dates back to 1863, and is listed in the Registry of Historic Places. Like many of the other hotels in New England, the exterior of this Bangor hotel is designed in a Victorian style. The Charles Inn is unique in that it is the only Bangor hotel that also serves as an art gallery. The NoniVillagE café is located in the hotel. It serves breakfast, tea and coffee. The walls of the café are covered with original art. If you fall in love with a particular painting, they offer a unique art leasing option. The rooms at the Charles Inn are decorated with mahogany reproduction furniture. All of the rooms have comfortable wingback chairs. Those of you who like to indulge in Victorian fantasies should request a room with a four-poster bed.
Compared to the other hotels in the area, The Nonesuch Farm and Bed and Breakfast is a more rustic Bangor Maine hotel. The Nonesuch Farm was built around 1855. It was only the second farmhouse in the small community of Six Mile Falls, which had its own post office, school, saw mill, general store and blacksmith shop. Descendents of the general store and blacksmith shop are still in business. One of the owners of the Nonesuch Farm was a teacher in the local school. It is believed that his ghost haunts the house. Perhaps the owners should ask the famous Bangor resident, author Stephen King, to investigate the matter. Nonesuch farm was originally a dairy farm. However, in recent years, they became the first farm to breed appaloosas in Maine. In fact, they are probably the only Bangor Maine hotel where you can visit the appaloosas!
