This was our 40th Anniversary trip to Maine. We rented a car and started to drive up the coast without reservations. I found this by accident in a Boothbay Harbor visitor book. We were able to stay for 2 nights. It is my dream B&B in all ways! Loved room #23. The owner and staff went above and beyond to... More

I stayed here with my husband and we had a great time. We had a nice room with a wonderful view of the water. The breakfast was also absolutely delicious! The owners were also really friendly and provided helpful tips on what to do during our stay. They also go above and beyond to offer nice little perks for you... More

Located on the little hill above bustling Boothbay Harbor, Topside (get the name?) Inn is a 3-minute walk from all the shops and restaurants, yet a soothing oasis from the hubbub. We felt so at home here, thanks to the warm welcome of innkeepers Buzz and Mark. We stayed in the main house (Room 3) with a view over the... More

We spent two nights at the Topside Inn. It's an inn, but it comes off just as much as a small boutique hotel. Fantastic location and views. Food delicious. The main inn building was well appointed and offered many areas to relax - including the lawn overlooking the harbor. Our room was great. Am I going on too much? Do... More

Had an outstanding time with terrific service and food. Yes, room we had was a tad bit small, but well worth it for the view, comfort, and amenities. No need for a car once at the Topside Inn in Boothbay Harbor as everything is a just a short walk down the hill. Will certainly return again soon!

If they gave 6 stars, this B&B would deserve it. From the location, to the charm, to the cleanliness, to the food, to the views, to the "vibe", to the owners, to the amenities .. all were 6 stars. The perfect combination of everything. The rooms are bright, crisp, and well appointed. The owners Mark and Buzz were as nice... More

Innovative dishes and the freshest ingredients make for a wonderful morning. The owners Buzz and Mark... More

The rooms are all small but really nice. The beds are king size I believe, and have LOTS of pillows (hard, medium and soft). Each room has a mini fridge and TV as well. The view overlooking the water is super nice. The owners have a complementary and amazing breakfast each morning from 8-9:30am. The owners are also really nice... More
