The two rooms were small but immaculately clean. Baths and showers also small with separate sink in the room. Breakfasts were excellent. Location most convenient. Easy walk into town. Good recommendations for dinner each evening.

We had a delightful stay at the Harbor House Inn. Great views of the water from our room! Comfortable room, great breakfast, afternoon treats. Loved having breakfast on the wrap around porch. Boothbay Harbor is walkable and quaint. Much more relaxing than all of the people in Bar Harbor. I highly recommend the Harbor House Inn.

Harbor House was beautiful, charming, and quiet! We enjoyed our stay and loved the location so close to 'downtown'. The breakfast was tasty and I loved that there were brownies out every afternoon. We stayed in the smallest room, but it really wasn't that small. The view from the porch was priceless and perfect for morning coffee or a late... More

Harbor House Inn is at an incredible spot on a hilltop with a great view, yet just one block walk from the busy harbor. It's so convenient. We parked our car and never moved it the day we were there. The inn is extremely well maintained, with a wonderful porch with rocking chairs that we made good use of to... More

We love coming here year after year as our hosts are very accommodating, the views are beautiful and the breakfast fabulous all at a reasonable price! Being gluten free, Monica always makes sure I have a wonderful gluten free breakfast. This is the place to stay with only a five minute walk to downtown BoothBay Harbor.

We only stayed for two nights, but this was a wonderful choice for sure. We had a hot and delicious breakfast every morning, great night sleep, and steps away from everything we wanted to do. Boothbay Harbor is a wonderful little town and this Inn made us feel apart of it as soon as we checked in. Thank you!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay in Boothbay Harbor because of the quiet, unassuming personality of our very kind hostess, Monica. The room was tastefully decorated, extremely clean and even had a nice view of the harbor. The best part of the breakfast was Monica's own "home cooking". Great stay! Highly recommended!

From the accommodations to the breakfast, nothing could have been better. A quick walk to the wharf where there was lots of shopping and great restaurants, the location is perfect. They have a nice deck where we sat outside and enjoyed the views during breakfast. Monica is a fabulous cook! Hope to stay with them again.

My room had views of the harbor. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast delicious, and the Innkeepers make you feel very welcome. And the wonderful porch overlooking the harbor is great for breakfast or just to relax and read to your heart's content.
