We just returned from a several night stay and are already missing it! The condition and cleanliness of the Inn is excellent, the room was peaceful and very comfortable, the personal care and concern for us as guests was wonderful, and the attention to detail is what fully lifts this Inn into an experience of its own.

We just fell in love with Topside! We've been coming to BBH for many years and have stayed in various places and this was, by far, the best spot in town. The rooms, (we stayed in 2 different rooms,) were immaculate and tastefully decorated with lovely views and wonderful breezes. We loved the breakfast served each day - delicious and... More

We stayed in early June for two nights and loved every minute of the stay. We were in room 3 and were very comfortable. Comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom. The breakfasts were just great, everything you could want. Loved the lemon blueberry pancakes. Lots of great coffee. Really enjoyed sitting on the lawn in the Adirondack chairs with the beautiful...

One of us is reluctant to go to B&Bs because of the ' pressure' to talk to strangers in the morning. She ( gave it away) got into this one though and spent a lot of time talking to one of the owners about the decorating which was great. The place is on a hill which allows a great view... More

We've lost track of how many times we stayed at the Topside. We keep coming back because of the location, quality and friendliness. Having missed last year, we were delighted to see the beautiful changes to the main house and hardscape. We look forward to returning next year and staying longer.

First, let me start by saying that Brian and Ed are gracious hosts and all around good people. The are attentive to needs and are sensitive to the customer experience. The small details like snacks and a kitchen equipped with cold spring water, coffee, tea and others is a nice touch. The breakfasts were to die for. Sweet potato waffles... More

Stayed at the Topside Inn in mid-July. Beautiful place with a good view of Boothbay Harbor. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The room was nicely set up and clean, and even in mid-July the ocean breeze was enough that there was no need for air conditioning. Downtown Boothbay Harbor is a very short walk... More

The B&B is on top of a hill overlooking the bay..it was breathtaking. The breakfast was so good, every morning. The owners are very nice and hospitable. The rooms and linens were very clean. We also enjoyed the baked treats in the afternoon.

This was our third time staying at the Topside Inn and we will always come back here! The first time we stayed in room #3 for Memorial Day weekend several years ago. It's a lovely room and we were so impressed with all of the special little touches that Brian and Ed provide to make your stay exceptional! The Adirondack... More
