The Admiral Peary Inn Bed & Breakfast is an 1865 colonial farmhouse that derives its name from Robert E. Peary, whose mother rented the house from its architect and lived at the location from 1877 to 1880. Her son came to live and work as a surveyor in Fryeburg after graduating from Bowdoin, until he left for Washington, DC in 1879. One of the guest rooms is dedicated to Admiral Peary, his family, and his travels, while the other six are named for the innkeeper’s own world travels.
Address: 27 Elm St., Fryeburg ME 04037
