Buzz, Mark, and Scott were incredibly helpful and professional. The inn was spotless; the food was great; and the hosts had wonderful "to do" and "to eat" recommendations. We will be staying here again next year!

My husband and I stayed here on our six week honeymoon around the USA. This was by far one of the best places we stayed during our holiday. Mark and his team were extremely accommodating and helpful to everything we needed. Their breakfast was the best we've had! The rooms were beautiful, the views were amazing, everything was perfect.

This Inn sits at the top of a hill in Boothbay Harbor. The view is absolutely unbelievable. Walking up the hill from the main street where all the shops and restaurants are is also incredible, incredibly difficult if you have asthma. The main Inn is very beautiful. I spent two nights there. The first night was in a room on... More

We always appreciate it when guests take the time to write a review, even if they have complaints or suggestions. I am very happy this guest took the time to compliment what she did enjoy about our Inn and included so many favorable descriptions, including “absolutely unbelievable”, “very beautiful”, “amazing”, “pure glamor”, and “immaculate”. We are also happy she enjoyed... More

As always, just the perfect place to stay in Boothbay Harbor. The new owners have done a fabulous job of continuing the beautiful work that the previous owners had done. Beautiful location, lovely rooms with great views, delicious breakfasts and so much more. It was another wonderful visit.

My husband and I spent three nights at this lovely bed and breakfast in early October. We were greeted at the main house and given a short tour by Scott who was especially nice and knowledgable.

Thank you for the nice review - much appreciated. Having owned and managed restaurants in the past, food service is important to us and we have a lot of fun doing it. We can have up to 41 guests, so breakfast is usually nicely paced, but when many guests are on the same schedule our staff gets to show their... More

We were met by Scott who, throughout our stay, was approachable and very helpful. Our room was attractive with a nautical theme and a beautiful view of the water.
