We stayed in the Blue Heron for two nights in August and we wished we had been able to stay longer. This is a truly remarkable B&B which caters for every aspect of your holiday experience. The location was about perfect for walking into the harbour (Sorry harbor!) and the numerous attractions and places to eat. We sampled several local... More

Stayed here one night for a weekend getaway and enjoyed our stay. The B&B is located a block or two past the bars and restaurants so it is extremely convenient but still peaceful. The rooms are large and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. The best part is how welcome you feel by the owners. They do a... More

We stayed at the inn for two nights celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary. We were on the third floor in #6. Fabulous views of the harbor. Very comfortable furnishings and very clean. Phil and Laura were very nice and quite helpful with information on activities. (They also surprised us with a bottle of champaign for our anniversary.) Breakfasts were good... More

We stayed at the Blue Heron for two nights; Phil and Laura couldn't be any nicer or more welcoming. They had great tips for us (restaurants, things to do, etc). It's a VERY peaceful Inn, right at the end of the harbor and close to town (5 minute walk). BUT, do be aware, at low-tide, it's a little less "picturesque"... More

We liked the location, near the town on the bay, with rear off street parking. Front has beautiful garden, porch, ambiance. The main room was very nice though quite small, seemed newer than the 2006 year addition. The bath while clean was ordinary with cheap fixtures. The worst thing about our room was that everyone walked through our deck and... More

When we go on the annual kayaking trip to salt water with our friends, we look for a few important things: the kayaking possibilities, the restaurants, and the B&B. We couldn't do anything about the thunder storm that came up suddenly one day, or the noisy atmosphere of one of the restaurants we chose, but we found just about the... More

We arrived in Booth Bay after a long day on the road. Tired we decided on the Blue Heron as it was close to where I stopped the car. It's on the main drag of Booth Bay, on the water. It's a bigger B&B with probably 10 rooms or so. The room we stayed in faced the bay and was... More

Trust us, this inn is the best in Boothbay. We're pretty particular about where we stay and the Blue Heron met all our expectations and more. The owners and staff go out of their way to make sure everything is ready for your stay and they check back with you each day. The rooms are in immaculate condition, clean, freshly... More

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
