My husband and I stayed here a Thursday thru Monday. July 11th was our one year wedding anniversary. Phil, Laura and Alice made this vacation very special. From the cleanliness, to the friendliness of the 3 of them, to the location, the privacy (we stayed in Room 2), I can't emphasize enough that it was one of our best vacations.... More

My husband and I were looking for something quaint for a quick overnight visit while in the area. He located Blue Heron and discovered there was a 2-night minimum stay. He contacted the owners and they were gracious to let us stay just 1 night. The place was just perfect!! Laura & Phil, the owners, along with Alice, their helper,... More

While we generally stay in Boothbay Harbor over the 4th of July, we decided to try a beautiful Bed and Breakfast we have always walked by near the downtown area. We were in luck, as they had a room. It was even better than we had anticipated. Stunning views, comfortable bed and incredible breakfasts, this B&B exceeded all of our... More

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in an old people's home? Then this is the place for you. Horrible, musty smell in the rooms. Flower patterns everywhere. Extremely unfriendly staff. The only good thing about Boothbay is the Lobster Dock on the other side of the bridge. Otherwise, please avoid. If they were a little... More

Thank you for choosing Blue Heron Seaside Inn for your recent visit to Boothbay Harbor. It's unfortunate that upon your arrival of your two day reservation you had the news to leave a day early to meet friends out of the area. We do our best, but when we're unable to fill last minute cancellations for reservations made well in... More

We recently returned from our week long stay at the Blue Heron and we absolutely loved it! The room that we stayed in (#4) was clean, spacious, and well decorated with a great view and comfortable bed. My husband loved the recliner as well. Breakfast was always a highlight and the food was wonderful. Our hosts Phil and Laura were... More

Lovely, well -appointed B & B located right on Boothbay Harbor and very short walk to the village, shops, restaurants and attractions. Owners, Laura and Phil, are delightful, accommodating and knowledgeable, both being from there or nearby. My husband particularly enjoyed conversation with Phil and our bed(Room 6) was so comfy! We will definitely recommend the Blue Heron!

We have stayed at several Inns and Hotels from around the world and find The Blue Heron Seaside Inn a hidden jewel. We found that the rooms were spotless and very tastefully decorated. We had plenty of room for our personal belongings in the closets, and bureaus. And our room #3 had a very spacious bathroom to include a hairdryer,... More

We have a lot of experience with high level inns and B&Bs, and also with lesser ones. This was one of the lesser. We stayed 3 nights, and will not be back. While our bedroom was well appointed, it did not have a dresser, but rather a fragile antique cabinet and a small closet for our belongings. The closet also... More

Thank you for selecting Blue Heron Seaside inn for your October visit to Boothbay Harbor. We are happy to know you found your room well appointed, clean and conveniently located to town. Although you felt the inn was 'comfortable', we regret you were not completely satisfied with your stay. Perhaps it was overlooked at your welcome briefing to explain all... More

This inn, located right on the water, offers spectacular views of the harbor from the deck. The breakfasts are excellent. And the owners and their daughters are very warm, inviting, and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is pricey, but well worth it.
