My wife and i stayed at the Sur La Mer 10/8-10/15 in the Penthouse. We had stayed here before about 4 years ago in the Boathouse and enjoyed it so we came back this year. The property is located on what is probably the most scenic part of Boothbay harbor. The Penthouse had it`s on private deck which we relaxed... More

My husband and I have stayed at more than 35 B&B's and had such fond memories of staying at this B&B 18 years ago. I was excited to stay there again with my husband, immediate and extended family. Labor Day weekend I took my children around the back of the inn to view the water and to point out where... More

Sur la Mer is a comfortable inn atop a promontory over the bay, with a terrace great for watching the boats come and go, birds soar or just meditating. It has all the traveler needs, but not the frufru bunnies and fake decor of many pretentious B&Bs. Gene and Shane are friendly hosts who provide a substantial breakfast and/or leave... More

We stayed in the Boat House rental. It was very homey and clean, Had all necesary needs for small kitchen if you need to cook, 5 minute walk to town, wharf and restaurants. Has a deck on roof with chairs and gas grill.. great view out into harbor. A nice place if you want privacy.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. When I first stepped out of the car the place looked abandoned, that is how poorly maintained it is. We walked around to the front of the property and it looked like the place has sat untouched for a year and someone had tried to mow a year's worth of lawn two... More

We enjoyed this eclectic inn. The collection of items made visiting the property interesting as well as the great view of the harbor It was pleasant waking to the sound of the harbor coming to life in the morning as we enjoyed our host's hospitality. A close walk to town was enjoyed even though we got caught in a unexpected... More

Thanks so much for the kind words. We're always happy to hear that great memories are made with us, even in a rainstorm. We're fortunate to have such incredible views to enjoy every day during season, and enjoy sharing those views with guests. We've got great things planned for 2013, and hope to see you again soon.

It was extremely overpriced and imagine one of your worst lodging experiences. The staff was unfriendly, inattentive and all other attributes that would be the antithesis of delightful inn-keepers. The room was dirty, filled with cobwebs and moldy. We were in the room that allowed dogs. The floor was too grimy to lie on. The small pile of ragged towels... More

My wife and I just finished staying at the Sur La Mer Inn. We've been going there for about 10 years. We absolutely love it! We're partial to The Penthouse room on the third floor as it has a private deck overlooking the harbor. You have a 180 degree unobstructed view of the harbor, which all guests can also enjoy... More

Dave & Lisa - we should give you your own set of keys!! It's always great to see you coming back to spend time with us...although we never see you! The Penthouse is indeed a great place to capture some quiet time and incredible bird's eye views of the harbor. See you in summer! More

Over-priced for what is offered. Antiques and charm are not excuses for old, worn, and out dated. Moldy. Service at minimum. Lack of friendliness and defensive, grumpy and attitudes. The restaurant has food from Sam's Club at gourmet prices. Skip it.

Best view in town, next to sparkling ocean. Splendid, peaceful terrace for sunning, sipping, vegging out. Friendly, thoughtful and fun innkeepers. Tasty breakfasts, comfy beds, sunny, breezy rooms. Nice and quiet and convenient walk to town. Close enough to town to explore it, but far enough away to enjoy Maine's beauty and to have some serenity.

Only you know the best spots! And right on our patio overlooking the harbor is one of them. We love seeing you every year and look forward to another few days with you this season, full of laughter and good wine. More
