This B&B is one of the best we have been to in Maine - wonderful views, great accomdations (so clean and recently... More

This inn is definitely the place to stay in Boothbay. Good location and great hosts. The breakfast was delicious and the room very comfortable. They have really thought through what makes a stay comfortable. And the homemade cookies are a great touch!

Lovely,beautifully decorated room in the Windward House. Bathroom fully equipped and immaculate. Two patios-one complete with pillows and a view of the harbor while lying down and daydreaming...! Great being able to hop into the kitchen and get something to drink and snack on at any hour. The guys were terrific even though I got their names mixed up and... More

Wonderful to return to our favorite spot in Boothbay Hatbor - we have stayed at Topside a number of times. New owners have continued the wonderful breakfasts & hospitality. The couches on the porches are so relaxing. We will be back! Thanks.

My husband and I left our 3 kids and dog for a short get away to the Maine Coast to celebrate our 11th anniversary. From the minute we arrived, I knew this was the place I had been searching for. I was looking for a nice, clean and newer looking B&B. While there are a ton of B&Bs up and... More

I'm not sure where to start. Our roomwas on the ground floor and was individually and tastefully decorated. The furnishings and appointments were 1st class. The amenities, and refreshments were available 24/7. (Home-made cookies in the afternoon) and a constant supply of coffee etc.. The location food and hospitality were unsurpassed. It's possible to run out of superlatives. Buzz and... More

This was our first time in Boothbay Harbor and we absolutely LOVED Topside Inn and our room #14. We were not in the Main Inn but in one of the additional buildings on the grounds. Our room was in a corner on a top floor and had two wonderful views of the bay and a cute porch from which to... More

Made a return visit to Topside Inn last week, first visit since Mark and Buzz took over and had a wonderful 3 nights there. The inn is as beautiful as we remember and there have been some new improvements as well! We loved the cushioned benches on the back porch and enjoyed watching the stars, planets and international space station... More

Everything from the location, gorgeous views, incredible breakfasts, beautiful grounds, helpful sightseeing tips, and the hospitality of Mark, Buzz and the rest of the staff was perfect in every way. We stayed in Room 9 on the first floor of one of the side buildings, it was very comfortable with a nice deck in the back. We did not want... More

We booked at the last minute and lucked into a cancellation. What great fortune! This list was on of the highlights of our trip. Mark and Buzz were wonderful hosts and guided us to the perfect restaurant for dinner. Our accommodation in the main house was outstanding. The common areas were beautiful and comfortable and the vista from the hilltop... More
