Our daughter goes to college in Maine and we decided to make our fall visit with her to an area we have never been. We heard great things about Boothbay Harbor and were so lucky to have found the Bayside Inn. The location is perfect with an amazing view and the accommodations were great! We had the Hockamock (?sp) room... More

Stayed here one night while traveling thru New England. Peter and Kathryn were very warm hosts; breakfast was delicious and timely. Enjoyed sun porch and walk into town. Charming, comfortable decor, although bathroom was small, was well stocked and clean. Would stay here again.

This B&B was very disappointing. We've stayed at many B&B's over the last 25 years and found nearly all of them to be lovely. While the hosts were gracious and the breakfast was good, the room was not clean particularly the bathroom. And we were in a more pricey room, a suite on the top floor. There was no soap... More

We stayed two nights from 09/19-21-2014, We had a great time in Boothbay Harbor and let me just say the view from the inn is just wonderful and I dare say the best from what I observed from the locations of other waterfront inns, Kathryn and Peter were great and Peter was quite entertaining with his wit and suggestions of...

We stayed at this gorgeous B&B and learned at little about its history. What a place! The room with very comfortable and beautifully appointed with an extra room to relax in. The views from the top floor are exceptional looking out at the harbor and watching the tide go in and out. The Innkeepers Kathryn and Peter were wonderful hosts... More

Beautiful B&B with a gorgeous view! Yummy, plentiful breakfasts! Friendly, helpful hosts! Spacious clean room with a comfy king bed! Within easy walking distance of the shops and restaurants. So glad we decided to spend 3 days here while celebrating our 20th anniversary!

We have stayed at several different B&B's in Boothbay but the Bayside Inn was the best location due to a combination of close proximity to the restaurants and shops, the view looking down the harbor, and the privacy provided by the unique peninsula it sits on. Innkeepers Kathryn and Peter couldn't have been more hospitable - very accessible, friendly and... More

My sister and daughter stayed here for 2 nights in August. Peter, the innkeeper, is a piece of work, just so charming and funny. His wife, Kathryn, made delicious breakfasts. We enjoyed sitting on the Adirondack chairs in the yard looking out on the harbor, eating breakfast on the deck, and taking the kayaks out at sunset. Our room had... More

We couldn't have picked a better B&B for our first visit to Boothbay Harbor. It is a lovely historic home that has been renovated with care, away from the bustle of the town but easily within gentle walking distance, and on the water with a beautiful view of the harbor. Kathryn and Peter were terrific hosts, very congenial and helpful... More

Boothbay Harbor is one of our favorite escapes. We decided to make a spur of the moment trip there last week. We checked out several B&Bs and decided the Bayside Inn looked the most inviting. The property is out of the hustle and bustle of the town, yet only a 5 minute walk from all the action. The yard is... More
