What a "find!" Atlantic Ark Inn is the perfect Bed & Breakfast when visiting Boothbay Harbor! Donna is an amazing host with helpful ideas for visiting the area. The Tranquility Room I stayed in had a deep soaking tub and a very comfortable bed. The room has windows on two sides, so even in July, I was able to sleep... More

Just spent our second stay at the Atlantic Ark and it was better than we even remembered! It's a beautiful old home that has been updated and loved. It is clean, the staff is friendly, the breakfast is amazing, and the location can't be beat! Donna and all the staff are wonderful. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed in early July 2015. Donna was an absolute sweetheart and we thought the inn accommodated perfectly. Boothbay Harbor is an adorable town with much to do and countless delicious dining options. We definitely wished we could have stayed longer. The cookies & tea on arrival evening were wonderful looking onto the harbor from the beautiful porch. Unfortunately, breakfast... More

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
