Donna is a great innkeeper; the inn is very clean and the breakfast and afternoon cookies were wonderful. The Bliss room is an ideal setting for a special occasion. Even the rain couldn't blemish a wonderful time.

We just came home today from a 3 night stay at this wonderful, well-appointed B&B. Our room on the third floor (Bliss) was beautiful, relaxing with a jacuzzi tub for two. I surprised my husband with a 20th anniversary getaway and we couldn't have had better accommodations than The Atlantic Ark Inn. Donna, the owner, is absolutely lovely and genuinely... More

This little B&B is true “Bliss” in beautiful Boothbay Harbor. We enjoyed staying two nights (June 18-19) on the top floor of this wonderful inn with awesome views of the harbor. We couldn’t have asked for anything more with our room (named Bliss) – beautiful décor, a couple of sitting areas, a nice balcony and large jacuzzi tub. Donna, the... More

We spent two nights at the lovely Atlantic Ark in a front room which looked directly to the water. The Innkeeper and staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well appointed. We were able to have a delicious breakfast served on the porch area.

We found the Atlantic Ark via the internet and we were not disappointed. The owner Diane and her assistant Devon,were wonderful hosts....polite, accommodating, helpful, friendly. Breakfast each morning was excellent and never repeated. Every afternoon cheese and crackers were available which we made good use of with a bottle of wine, enjoyed while sitting on the front porch and watching... More

My husband and I recently spent 5 nights at this lovely B & B. We were in "Bliss" which is half of the third floor. There is a second bedroom available off of the main room but was locked off for our stay. The room is very comfortable with vaulted ceiling and large bath with jet tub. It has a... More

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was pleasantly surprised to learn there was an opening at this wonderful B&B Labor Day week. The Innkeeper, Devon, was gracious and informative. Donna, the Owner was so nice and welcoming. The Inn was spotless, breakfast was delicious, the other guests were nice, interesting people. The location near the footbridge is a plus.

We stayed in The Cottage - "Solitude". The room is just that - very quiet, very secluded. We love this place. This side of the harbor is much less busy than the other and therefore much quieter. You can easily get to the other side via the footbridge so you get the best of everything this way. The Inn offers... More

My wife and I have stayed here 5 times now and we couldn't be more pleased with the Atlantic Ark Inn. We have stayed in Beauty 2x, Bliss 1x and The Cottage 2x. The Cottage is our favorite. The Inn is on the quiet side of the Harbor. The footbridge is only a short walk and then you can easily... More
