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.

This was my first trip to Boothbay Harbor and this was the perfect spot. It was just a couple blocks from downtown. Our room had a private entrance and private deck in the back....highly recommend this room!

We stayed for 5 days. Our room was very comfortable and we loved the little deck with the view of the harbor. Breakfasts were delicious, Tom and Monica are wonderful inn keepers. It was fun speaking with the other guests and the restaurants were great. The Harbor House is within walking distance of the town. We spent time shopping in... More

Harbor House Inn is very well maintained and centrally located within easy walking distance of all the downtown shops and restaurants. The harbor view from the wrap around porch is slighly obscured by a neighboring B&B, but it is visible. The morning breakfast offered a variety of selections each day and varied from day to day. The Innkeepers, Tom and... More

Visited boothbay harbour for a wedding recently and stayed with the lovely couple that run the harbour house inn, we were made to feel very welcome and would return in a heart beat if we find ourselves over that way again. Breakfast was outstanding and our friends who had booked another B&B by mistake were kicking themselves.

Innkeepers were the best - just like old friends. Location at top of small hill so mobility impaired, take note that you will have to take your car (plenty of parking). Great sociable breakfasts (loved the muffins) and coffee and snacks always available. Lovely porch. We rented room 4 because it was the only one available. Nice views of harbor... More

Stayed two nights at Harbor House. Tom was a friendly host, ready to provide lots of local information and Monica made delicious breakfasts! Lovely view of the water from the window seat in our 2nd floor room. Enjoyed the porch seating and tree swing at sunset. Short walk to shops, restaurants, and piers. Definitely would recommend!

We recently stayed at the Harbor House Inn and our experience was great. Tom and Monica, the Inn owners were polite, helpful and very knowledgeable of the area. They suggested daily activities and the most picturesque locations in Boothbay. The Inn was very clean and the view of the bay from our room was amazing. We could also see parts... More
