We have stayed at the Topside Inn several times and I must say, its really top notch. The owners are very attentive to detail and the location perched on the hilltop is just perfect. We love the breakfast, great rooms and sailing sometimes twice when we are there. A definite YES, can't wait to return.

My wife and I spent a week at Topside last September, our third stay. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms, a nice change. As always the rooms are clean, and all the nice little extras remain. Breakfast remains a treat and great way to start the day. Mark, Buzz, and all the staff will make you feel like... More

This was our first B&B stay in our 10 day trip up the coast of Maine with me, my husband and 86 yr old mother. Everything about our stay here was ideal. Room comfortably accommodated the 3 of us with common areas adding to our pleasure. We enjoyed coffee in the fireplace area both mornings before breakfast, and enjoyed the... More

Thank you for touching on a number of details we hope our guests will appreciate and enjoy during their stay at the Topside. Boothbay is located in the heart of the mid coast region and is a great place to stop on a tour of the Maine coast or to stay for a few days or more and explore all... More

Thank you, we always appreciate when guests take the time to post a review. We just completed replacing all of the railings on our guestroom balconies with stainless steel cables; making them almost invisible. The views from the balconies are now even more incredible. The custom cushioned seating areas and privacy dividers make these balconies great places to relax and... More

Terrific B&B that perfectly balances cozy inn atmosphere, but not stuffy or too "traditional". Mark and Buzz were so welcoming and helpful. We had a room in the Windward house and LOVED the couch seat on the back deck with view of the harbor! Location is super - short walk to town...room was comfortable and clean....main house was very cozy... More

I booked this because of the reviews I read on Tripadvisor, and I was not disappointed. I booked a room overlooking the bay for my mother in law, and a different room for my daughters (aged 11 and 12) and I. My girls are both reserved and well mannered, otherwise they would not have fit in here. The property is... More

Mark and Buzz provide simply the cleanest, most welcoming, most relaxing inn in the entire Boothbay Region! The views from the "Top of the Hill" are breathtaking! The inn is located above the fray of Boothbay Harbor, but within walking distance (the hill IS a steep climb) of all the sights and sounds of this iconic New England fishing village.... More

What an endorsement, thank you, we really appreciate it. Having not always been a morning person, I can say the view of the sunrises from the inn which sita on the highest point in Boothbay Harbor are incredible (even if you go back to bed for a bit). As for the hill, we are happy to report we have purchased... More

This place will not disappoint. The location and views are beyond stunning. I love the clean nautical look and decor (not fussy and outdated like other BNBs on the Maine coast). Comfortable room and Buzz/Mark are just the best. I cannot wait to return in the summer some day and drink in the view on those adorable beach chairs on... More

We can't say enough good things about our stay at Topside Inn. The view from our room (Room # 14) was amazing! I would have to say the best at the Inn. We had two walls of windows overlooking the bay, and a little private outside patio...where we were able to have some wine and watch the sunset. The owners... More
