This inn was picked for us by wedding hosts. The location was just perfect, very close to town yet quiet and set back. We were the Leeward house and I think the rooms were a bit sterile in decor, lacked in quaintness as built like a hotel wing, however, it was clean and tidy.

Thank you for the review overall positive feedback. The Leeward Guest House was built in the 1970's in a 'motel style' so I understand your impression of the space. The rooms have been renovated with new bathrooms and all new furnishings. We are glad you enjoyed the view, the upper 3 rooms have great views of the harbor from their...

If I could give a higher score I would. Amazing B&B. Hospitality was A+. Clean and tidy rooms. Gorgeous views in every direction. Walking distance to awesome food and shopping. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Homemade breakfast in the am surpassed our expectations.

We were there on 8/24/14 for three nights. There are new owners but it seems to have been a seamless transition. The rooms and grounds are well kept. The staff and Innkeepers are very freindly and helpful. The location is perfect, on a hill overlooking the harbor. Have stayed there a number of times and I am sure we will...

This is a very welcomed review. We took ownership of Topside Inn on August 22nd, so to get such a nice review 2 days in is great. We have been friends with the previous owners for 11 years and have watched them transform Topside into the impressive property it is today. Their service and attention to detail has been second...

We stayed at the Topside Inn while in booth bay for a wedding. Everything was wonderful from start to finish! We stayed in the main house and had access to the front porch and the rocking chairs out front. Anyone can use them though! Our room was large and well appointed. The king sized bed was very comfortable. While our...

Thank you for the nice review and good advice on the rooms. A few rooms have very large bathrooms, they were formerly bedrooms when the house was build in 1840. The room with the largest bathroom is #4 (tub/shower combination). Room #3 across the hall does not have a tub but it has a huge walk-in open shower. Hope you...

The Topside Inn was wonderful. It was our first time in Boothbay Harbor and we could not have been more pleased. From the minute we pulled in to the parking lot every interaction and experience was a delight. I am an extremely picky traveler and usually spend a great deal of time researching locations before arrival. My husband chose this...

We are happy we were part of your anniversary celebration and that you enjoyed your stay. I really like room #23 for all the reasons you mentioned. This winter we have plans to vault the ceiling in the bedroom area and install a ceiling fan, adding even more light and character to the room. We hope you can return and...

My husband and I stayed just one night but we wish we could have stayed longer! This was the nicest B & B we have ever been to. Super clean, comfortable bed, great attention to detail. We enjoyed playing board games and reading in the cozy living room area and the breakfast was wonderful!

My husband and I stayed at the Topside Inn again this year for our annual Boothbay trip. The room was clean and spacious, and we had our own deck (always nice to have a spot for quiet reading). The breakfasts were delicious, and both owners a pleasure to talk to. Plus, the price is right!

We stayed four nights at this inn/b&b with a wonderful view of Boothbay Harbor. The rooms are handsomely decorated with a lot of attention to detail. Bryan and Ed, the innkeepers, are obviously perfectionists and that is a great advantage for the guests. Breakfasts were different every day, served on a charming enclosed porch with great views. The meals were...
