Great location within walking distance of restaurants and "downtown" area. Well maintained property. Donna was very helpful and friendly. Had room on third floor. Very large and nicely decorated. Loved the private little balcony to enjoy a glass of wine while looking at the ocean. Bathroom was very large and whirlpool tub was awesome! Enjoyed a great cup of coffee... More

With a room overlooking the harbor, and within easy walking distance of restaurants and downtown Boothbay Harbor, the Atlantic Ark Inn was almost perfect. The sit-down three-course breakfasts were well-prepared and elegantly served by Michelle and Devin, and our room was well-appointed. The facility is not, however, disabled friendly, with a long, steep flight of stairs up to the sleeping... More

We stayed in Room 3 (Sweetness) and it has an incredibly comfortable bed. Donna the owner/innkeeper is very sweet and adds all the special little touches like a cheese platter in the afternoon, fresh baked cookies in the evening, and coffee or hot cider available at most times. Highly recommend the berry French toast. It was delicious and not too... More

The inn is located within easy walking distance of the town and restaurants. We had a great room on the top floor with our own private balcony. We had a view of the harbor from our bed. And you won't find a nicer innkeeper than Donna.

Our welcoming host was a lovely and interesting personality who took every effort to make our stay in her lovely garden cottage a unique experience. Located at the other side of the town center, you can enjoy the peacefulnes of the garden and the sun set in one of the restaurants nearby. The homemade breakfast in the morning was prepared...

This was our 1st time to the State of Maine and our first stop at 3 different B&Bs along the coast. When we arrived at the Atlantic Ark Inn, we were met by the Innkeeper (Donna) who was even more lovely than the "Gorgeous" room "Bliss" that we spent the next two nights in. She gave us detailed "points of... More

We arrived early afternoon and stayed one night in the little cottage a the rear of the main building. It was comfortable without a lot of steps to climb and there was a surprisingly good view out past the house to the harbor. Looked a bit like a watercolor painting. We skipped the cheese plate in the mid afternoon but... More
