This place is what one thinks, when they hear B&B. Between the old house, and friendly owners, and beautiful garden, the Higgins House has it all! Patty & Mike are the perfect fit as Innkeepers in this impeccably clean, and perfectly maintained old house. They are friendly & inviting and run a great B&B. The bedroom & bath are comfortably...

We stayed in the downstairs bedroom which was large and comfortable. We were greeted on arrival by Mike and Patty who are very gracious and interesting hosts. Wine, rum shots, and snacks were an enjoyable late afternoon treat. Breakfast was delicious. First course of fresh fruit and homemade sweet breads. Next course was frittata, bacon, stuffed broiled tomato, and crispy...

Great hospitality, great room, superb breakfast, and convenient location make for perfect weekend. We stayed while attending a nearby wedding. Patty and Mike went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We had the 1st floor Aspen room due to my going to Physical Therapy for knee problems. We walked to nearby Blues Club for a nightcap. We...

We've stayed at several bed and breakfast places but this was the best one we've ever stayed at. The owners, Patty and Mike, are so friendly and fun to be around. Patty was so nice when we first arrived and offered us a glass of wine while she spent a lot of time walking us through the entire house and...

I was traveling alone and couldn't have asked for nicer hosts, Patty & Mike. They looked out for me and gave me the best tips for enjoying Sanford. The Higgins House is spotless and my room was ultra lovely (bed so comfortable), bathroom huge and it was light and cheery. Not only do I recommend the Higgins House and the...

My wife and I stayed here while celebrating our anniversary. The house is beautiful, surpassed only by the cordial, friendly and engaging owner, Ms. Patty Ribera. We will be going back to enjoy the B&B AND to enjoy the conversation with Patti. We missed her husband, Mike, but we heard all about him and know we will enjoy meeting him...

Pat and Mike were just wonderful, very friendly and warm people. The house is so beautiful and comfortable and the garden is gorgeous. We will be making this one of our special places! Sanford is such a great little town with lots of great local places to visit.

We had a 7am flight and chose Higgins House for the night before. Patti greeted us with a glass of wine and a little history of the house. Very cool and authentic. Comfy bed and bathroom, walking distance to many restaurants in historic Sanford. Patti packed a nice breakfast for us with homemade muffins, fruit, juice and chocolate for the...

I've never been to Sanford but decided to try it after reading the reviews for the Higgins House. I was pleasantly surprised. The owners are wonderful and very accommodating. The place is beautiful, well decorated and very clean. The breakfast was delicious! Sanford downtown has a quaint, artsy feel.

I was in Sanford for the week for work. The Higgins House was only down the street from were I was working. My husband found this wonderful Victorian Home on line for me. I stayed in the Cedar room which was wonderful. The whole house was like stepping back in time. My host Patty was a delight to spend time...
