The Topside is everything we could ask for. Awesome views, incredible breakfast, beautifully appointed room and excellent customer service. We wanted to stay in the house but it was full. We chose the end room in the unit that has a three sided view from everywhere in the unit. We couldn't have asked for more. Can't wait to return some... More

This inn has has spacious, well-appointed rooms. The decor is New England nautical. The view of the harbor is fantastic. The breakfast was delicious--beautiful fruit salad, bacon, lemon blueberry pancakes, yogurt, and homemade granola that was the best I've ever had. They even freely offered their recipe. The innkeepers' attention to detail is impressive and thoughtful.

In a word, FABULOUS! The Topside Inn looked adorable online, but photos don't do it justice. In addition the the stunning hilltop views of the bay, the owners are committed to their guests... the smallest of details take center stage. It's quaint, comfortable setting made for a memorable visit to Boothbay Harbor. We hated to leave and are already planning... More

Located on a hill overlooking the town, the Topside Inn offers a welcome and level of service that's hard to find in many large hotels. Your hosts Brian and Ed make you feel welcome from the minute you arrive and you feel like you are a welcome guest in a charmingly comfortable country house. We chose this Inn over several... More

I thought the staff here was arrogant and unhelpful. The owner sits behind the front desk instead of interacting with guests, doesn't help with luggage or greet people. We got the sense he only wants to cater to recurring guests or locals versus greeting new people. Front desk closes very early and it is difficult to get in touch with... More

We take it to heart when we are unable to meet or exceed any of our guests’ expectations, and are sorry you were disappointed with your stay. All of our guests receive information about our check-in hours in their confirmation, in the 14-day advance reminder, and in our “see you today” email sent the morning of arrival. Someone is at...

Our first visit to Topside Inn and we certainly hope it will not be the last. Perfection is hard to achieve, but Brian, Ed and the rest of the crew got close enough for us. Wonderful views from the room, mouthwatering breakfasts and attention to detail in every aspect, from the route directions to all the local must-see places to... More

The photos do not do this amazing place justice. The room was great! Very spacious, clean, and had everything you may need including a mini fridge. The bathroom was equipped with the best smelling soap ever, along with shampoo and lotion. The water was hot and water pressure was great. The location was great as it right in the middle... More

Our stay at Topside Inn was really great. We stayed two nights but could have stayed much longer had we had the time. The owner-operators are incredibly thoughtful and they seem to anticipate one's every need and desire. The Inn is absolutely beautiful and wonderfully appointed, breakfasts were delicious and thoughtful, and the amenities were terrific. We were traveling from... More

We had room 20 in the Leeward Cottage below the main building. Very clean and comfortable. Tiny TV and no need for one anyway. Lovely views, great food, friendly staff, and a short walk down to town. Breakfast special was delicious version of Eggs Benedict. Also try Kabels fried lobster and Ports of Italy for upscale dining. Tahoe the Novelty... More

Everything was perfect. We stayed for our 20th wedding anniversary celebration after a hectic week. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in. The room has all the little amenities that make for a flawless stay. The view is stunning. The breakfasts are freshly cooked and delicious. Ed and Brian are freindly hosts and they know the area and... More
