Landscaping and woodsy setting add a lot, even though it's not on the water. Homemade buffet breakfast adds a lot. Very pleasant owners add a lot. Comfortable bed and pillows. Shower & WiFi work well. Clean and up-to-date. We could have used a little more counter space in the bathroom, and electrical outlets could have been more accessible, but we... More

Nothing negative to say here....this lodge is lovely, extremely well kept inside and out. Owners were very pleasant. The breakfast was wonderful - the best fresh fruit salad we have ever had!!! We had never been to Boothbay and it is a beautiful area to visit. A must is Bets, portions for the price are well, well worth it but... More

We absolutely concur with the other outstanding reviews about the Howard House. The owners, Ginny and Jim, make it a wonderful stay. We were traveling from Boston to Bar Harbor and wanted to stop in Boothbay Harbor to see the highly rated Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. It's a halfway point from Boston to Bar Harbor, and the Howard House is... More

We booked this hotel on the internet from afar, without knowing much about it. We were just looking for a place to stay in the Boothbay area. It turned out to be a real gem, with nice, clean, quiet, well-furnished rooms, friendly service and a delicious breakfast. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the personal touch sets it...

We stayed for two nights in July and had a wonderful stay. Rooms were clean and well kept, owners were amazingly nice and the breakfast is to die for. Ginny makes all homemade baked goods and a different and delicious egg dish each morning. Excellent coffee (they have their own blend made by a local roaster) and they graciously accommodated...

Pulling into the parking lot my wife and I were struck with the simple beauty and landscaping setup of the office and lodge building. The lodge sat on the side of hill surrounded by trees, outside balconies weld kept grounds and flowers. From the time I signed in with "Jean" who said I didn't have to pay now I felt... More

My husband and I have stayed here a few times over the last few years and we are never disappointed. The property is beautiful...lots of trees and flowers. Very quiet in the evening. The rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Breakfast is always wonderful...fruit, eggs, blueberry coffee cake or muffins, and more. Ginny and Jim, the owners, make this one... More

I've been travelling to Boothbay for almost 10 years now as a wedding photographer - and I SO wish I had found this before. Ginny and everyone at the lodge are so accommodating and genuinely helpful, warm, and happy to see us. The lodge itself is perfect too - great mix of classic lodge hotel and quaint/intimate bed and breakfast.... More

The Howard House B&B was recommended by friends, who we joined up with once there. We trusted our friends advice but when it really came down to it, we just wanted to stay where they were staying. What a fantastic overall experience this was! The setting is great, a five minute drive to the ocean yet you have deer in... More
