Stayed here 2 nights in Oct. The room was very spacious, big deck over looking the harbor. quick walk to town by crossing the little wooden bridge. Great sunsets. The owners are very friendly and warm, as is all the staff on location. They have their own restaurant, where you can get 3 meals a day. The food was good... More

We were so thrilled with this hotel! Set on the water, seagulls flying overhead, chapel bells chiming old church hymnal bells while we sipped wine on our terrace balcony( each room had one), we were so enchanted with the atmosphere and ambience of this hideaway property! We walked at dusk into the quaint town , over a footbridge, in 15... More

Beautiful grounds and flowers every where! Very well maintained. Our room was facing docks & on ground floor so we felt like we were actually on the water. Lots to do in Boothbay but I could have been happy just sitting on balcony & watching all the activity in the harbor. Hope to go back again.

We stayed at Brown's Wharf Inn and it was just perfect. The room was spacious and comfortable, but the best part was our balcony that hung out over the harbor. We went to relax and watch the boats and the sunsets and this is the place to do just that. We also enjoyed the restaurant and the shops in town.... More

We had a corner room ($10.00 more) with windows on 2 sides overlooking the harbor. Taking pictures of the harbor at night was great fun for me. Room was spacious!! Bathroom was small and felt like the beech house on the Jersey shore. Breakfast was good... but not included with room.

We stayed at Brown's Whart Inn last summer for 3 nights. The harbor view from the large balcony was superb. The property is a bit older but has been extremely well maintained and it is easy to see that the owners want to provide the best possible stay for their guests. Beautiful flowers, friendly and responsive staff, very comfortable rooms,... More

My third visit to Boothbay, my second to Brown's Wharf Inn. I love this hotel. Yes the bathrooms and sink area are small, but the rooms, furnishings (real bedspreads) and the views are spectacular. This feels like a lovingly run family hotel, from the front desk staff, clean staff to the restaurant staff, everyone seems to know what their job... More

What an excellent visit! The room was nice and cozy, the view was amazing, and the food was great. We were only there for a short time but it was the most memorable stay of our entire trip! Who cares if the bathroom is a little small the rest of the experience is worth it.

Weather was pretty poor which didn't help! A walk in booking for two nights saw us in a 2nd floor harbor view room with balcony. The room itself was large, standard furnishing, clean and comfortable. But as also mentioned elsewhere the bathroom was a tad on the tiny side and I usually defend hotels on this score as I don't... More

Loved everything about Brown's Wharf Inn! My husband and I stayed 3 nights in a first floor room on the Harbor side. What an awesome view! The room was beautiful, large, very clean, and nicely decorated! Loved the balcony too! Staff at the Inn was so friendly and very helpful. Lovely flowers too! The restaurant was delicious for dinner and... More
