We enjoyed the short stopover in Boothbay Harbor in October at the Harbor House. You can appreciate the fine historical detail preserved in the house when you drive from the fire station to the top of McKown St. The ocean views were quite impressive even from the first floor wrap around porch. When Tom helped deliver our luggage to our... More

We loved the B&B , where it is located in town, on the hill. It was clean, and welcomming. Tom is a great people person and his wife is a great cook. We had delicious breakfast. Me and my sister just loved our stay there. We recommend it to anybody who goes to Boothbay Harbor. I jusst wished we could... More

First of all the MANY positives. Beautifully situated, well furnished, clean, fresh bed linen, (though lots of dust above head height on TV etc.) comfortable, friendly helpful patrons. NEEDS attention-Good plentiful breakfast though rather clinically presented. In addition entrees such as omelette and French toast could have been prepared individually on demand as there were only a handful of guests... More

Tomica, Owner at Harbor House Inn, responded to this review

While we always enjoy positive comments, we also take constructive suggestions seriously. While our dogs are extremely well behaved and will stay on the perimeter of the dining room, our guests often invite them in. They enjoy their company, even during breakfast! If we notice that they are not welcome, we immediately remove them. If there was dust on the... More

My wife and I had never been to Maine before, so we had high expectations. The Harbor House Inn has great view of the harbor, is only a short walk from the heart of Boothbay, and was a perfect base for our travels. Tom and Monica are generous and helpful hosts, and helped us make great choices for visiting the... More

We've been staying in the Boothbay Region at the family place, or a rented cottage, a motel, or a b & b for some 30 years. Heck, in the summer of 1951 I learned to WALK in East Boothbay. It is a special place to us, and it has a special duty to recharge our batteries and our creativity. The... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights over Labor Day weekend (our 2nd time here) while my wife ran the inaugural Boothbay Harbor Half Marathon. As we remembered, the rooms were nicely set up and the breakfasts were excellent. Plenty of parking space even with my big old Expedition. Perfect location for walking around the town. Monica and Tom were... More

Very comfortable bed. Nice to find a king bed in a b&b. Very spacious room on the third floor. Chair in room. Great Breakfast. Charming innkeepers. Can't say enough about this great place! Some rooms have view of harbor. Definitely would go back!

Husband and I booked two nights... The only room left was the smallest. Which is fine since we wernt going to be spending much time in it. The Inn... was quaint and the porch was nice. Breakfast each morning was amazing! Great location in the Booth Bay Harbor area. We loved walking into town, lots of shops...Although we didn't realize... More

My sister and I visited this inn twice. Once early June 2014 we had to plan a quick trip to Boothbay due to an unexpected death in the family. Tom and Monica were very accommodating considering the last minute reservation and the fact that we needed to bring our dog as well. The pet friendly room is substantially separate with... More

Our hosts, Monica and Tom,were welcoming and informative about the area, giving us recommendations, meeting all of our needs. The Inn has a great wrap-around porch and offers great breakfasts in a buffet-type setup. We stayed two days, enjoying the baked French toast, banana muffins, coffee, fresh fruit, then a baked omelette and/or baked oatmeal the next morning with fresh... More
