Topside Inn is a top notch getaway. The rooms are beautiful, the food is incredible, the staff-- like family. It doesn't get any better than Topside. Boothbay has so much to offer. Check out the Botanical Gardens while you are there.

Thank you for the great review, we appreciate hearing from guests all year. We will be reopening for the 2017 season on May 5th - be sure to ask about our opening week special to benefit Habitat for Humanity. The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens opens April 15th - they have once again planted over 38,000 tulip bulbs which will bloom...

It's hard to imagine a nicer place to stay. Innkeepers Mark & Buzz make you feel as if you are staying with friends. Excellent food and hospitality. Helpful at every turn. Great location on top of the highest point in Boothbay Harbor, but only a block from "downtown" (to be fair, that block is ALL hill - gives you a...

This is the first year Topside has been open past October. The Boothbay Festival of Lights, a new event in response to the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens hugely successful "Gardens Aglow" has been so much fun. We created a package which included tickets to the gardens, a cocktail party each evening and our great breakfasts. With only seven rooms available,...

Amazing place! Beautiful location overlooking the harbor and out toward the ocean. The rooms were bright and comfortably appointed. Cocktail hour was awesome as you could meet and greet the other guests, but the most amazing and surprising part was the gourmet breakfast. Both Mark and Buzz were friendly and gracious hosts as well as great cooks! Would recommend this...

Thank you for the great review, these past few weekends have been amazing. We have really enjoyed spending time with our guests during the cocktail parties before everyone heads out to enjoy the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden's "Gardens Aglow" and dinner at local restaurants. The town is all light up for the Festival of Lights, very impressive. Glad you enjoyed...

We loved our room in the main house. Charming décor, lots of windows, views, huge bath w/glass block shower. Perfect Maine hilltop setting, fabulous breakfasts and great innkeepers who have basically thought of everything.

Topside Inn is at the top of the hill, within walking distance of the village of Boothbay Harbor. It is everything you ever have seen on a post card of the Maine coastal towns. Mark and Buzz are attentive and hospitable innkeepers. Their hard work to make this B & B what it is, is apparent. The main house has...

Thank you, please do visit again and stay as long as you like. We do like to show off the local food available to us, glad you enjoyed the breakfasts.

There are many reasons the Topside is a top-rated bed and breakfast; after staying there, we would give a sixth star if we could. If the Topside billed itself as a four-star dining experience, it wouldn't be an overstatement. Morning offerings are diverse; main dishes are inventive, delicious, perfectly prepared, and beautiful. Everything, and I mean everything, is prepared on...

The owners know what they are doing. The breakfast was perfect and the Inn is nicely decorated and impeccably clean and attractive. Really good sheets, towels, and bathroom products. Garden lovers will be please with the outdoor landscaping.

Every visit has been perfection. From the exquisite views and prime location to the top-notch hospitality (seriously, Buzz and Mark have thought of EVERYTHING, and deliver it with beautiful elegance)- the Topside is not to be missed. And, did I mention the breakfasts?!?! World-class.

I investigated almost every lodging option in BBH prior to reserving here. We stayed here for our son's destination wedding, so we wanted a very nice place with options for our friends, good location, excellent amenities, a view, and a gathering place. Bingo! First, just let me say that dealing with Mark and Buzz was wonderful. I was that crazy...
