I haven't had a real vacation for nearly ten years, so my girlfriend and I were really excited about visiting Boothbay. What we really wanted was to be able to sit in our room, share a bottle of wine, and just relax and look at the boats on the bay. When I made the reservation, the guy I talked to...

We never like to hear that a guest was disappointed with a stay at our inn, and our goal is to exceed expectations. Whether over the phone or on our website, we do our best to set the right expectation with regard to views and other aspects of our property - there is no incentive for us to offer inaccurate...

Whilst Boothbay Harbor was disappointing - coach-loads of tourists and shops to meet their needs - the Topside Inn was anything but. It was peaceful, relaxing and of the highest quality. Loved the welcome, the room, the views, the breakfast and the location. Classily romantic. Can't say much more. It really is a no-brainer if you are looking for first-class...

We loved Topside Inn. The room was pleasant and clean (although not large) and tastefully appointed. Inviting comfortable bed and wonderful pillows and comforter helped for good rest. The best part was the innkeepers and the wonderful creative breakfasts. We were there three mornings and had a wonderful treat each time. Entrees were on top of the regular fruit, homemade...

We really enjoyed our stay at Topside. The main house has a small kitchen, drinks available, nice fireplace and sitting area, and a big porch with rocking chairs. There are 3 buildings with rooms in addition to the main house. We stayed in room 9, which we loved. Nautical themed, king bed, corner unit with nice outside porch and a...

Mark and Buzz treat you like a good friend during your stay at Boothbay Harbor. We love Boothbay and will always stay at Topside Inn. Clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful view, staff are very friendly and accommodating. Complimentary snacks and a bowl of fresh picked apples. And the coffee is delicious! We love Topside Inn

Warm and friendly B&B with stylish and comfortable rooms. They're not the biggest rooms I've come across but the views from the private outdoor seating with each room and wonderful breakfast absolutely make up for it - the home made granola and carrot cake pancakes were amazing!

Wonderful views overlooking the harbor from almost every corner of the property. We so enjoyed the back porch area of our room and would steal a great view out now & then!! The rooms are light, comfortable and acknowledged their coastal surrounds. Our bathroom was tight (we're tall), but up-to-date and we appreciated having a window & fresh air. Creative...

Was just great. Our favorite spot to stay! Clean, organized and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were beautiful and tasty. The outdoor views are tremendous. Kuddos to the owners and all of the staff. Only suggestion I'd make is putting weather stripping or similar material under the doors for privacy. The front 1st room is a bit cooler and noisy with...

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent 10 day vacation. This is a lovely B&B with great attention to detail. Our room was beautifully decorated as was the rest of the house.

My husband, my brother, and I thoroughly enjoyed our "too-short" stay at Topside Inn last Wednesday night!! As part of a 10 day trip to Boston (4 days) and Maine (6 days), our Maine trip involved different lodging and different towns each night! This Inn was a delightful stop on our tour! Some of the things that stand out are:...
