The location of the Harbour Towne Inn is perfect, very quiet and a short walk from shops and the main section of town. Parking is easy in the small parking lot behind the inn, and being within walking distance of everything, there is no need to move your car once you park it. The Innkeeper was friendly and warm when... More

My friend and I had two rooms so a good sampling. This bed and breakfast was clean, and nicely decorated. It backed on the water with wrap-around porches on all levels and wicker furniture in which to sit to enjoy the view. The proprietors are very friendly and personable. Breakfast was especially delicious, with two breakfast casserole-type dishes and a... More

The Inn provides just the right amount of charm, relaxation and Victorian beauty to make your stay a lovely one. Comfy beds, plenty of hot water, and a balcony to sit on and watch the world go by or check out what was going on down on the water. The Inn sits away from the hustle and bustle of the... More

This inn has all the charm and allure one would imagine in a Maine Bed and Bedfast. As you walk to the office you will stop and admire the English Garden growing on the path to the down, the Victorian Splendor of Inn stands erect to welcome and the friendly staff will be right inside to greet you. This Inn... More

This Inn has it all, comfort and charm and you can walk to everything! Our hostess Stefanie was so welcoming. The breakfast was delicious, so many yummy options. She offered great suggestions on what to do and see in the area. I especially loved sitting outside overlooking the water amongst all the beautiful flowering plants while eating and sipping coffee...

I stayed there on two occasions this summer, once in the suite on the top level, and once on the garden level. Both rooms were unique and delightful! The view of the harbor is awesome, there is a private sitting area outside each room, the breakfast is spectacular--home made, fresh, a variety of selections. The flowers are gorgeous--they must spend... More

My husband and I spent a week in Boothbay four years ago and stayed at the HTI, so when we made plans to spend a week on Monhegan Island in the beginning of August, we decided to return to the HTI for a few nights before our ferry trip over to the island. We love the homey feeling of this... More

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Harbor Towne Inn and we are looking forward to a visit in the fall. The Inn was in a great location for walking around Boothbay Harbor and enjoying all the sights. Loved our room and the little table reserved for us on the porch to enjoy the view and morning breakfast. The flowers... More

Stephanie and Renee at the Harbour Town Inn saved us from a horrendous stay at a cabin resort in the Boothbay area. We called last-minute Sunday morning in hopes of some rooms and were able to stay at the HTI but had to switch rooms each night - which was cool because we got to see a lot of the... More

My daughter and I stayed for one night and wished for more time! Very comfortable room and a welcoming host, I felt as though I was meeting a friend…and breakfast in the morning was delicious (do not miss the stuffed french toast!)! We will be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What a thrill and surprise to learn that we have been chosen as the signature image of the annual guide to Maine Guide to Inns and Bed & Breakfast accommodations, published by the Maine Tourism Association. Our sweet little waterfront deck is on the cover of the magazine, as well as the online guide! We hope you'll find your way to our special little spot and share your own special memory of the majestic Maine coast. Located on the waterfront in the heart of the scenic coastal town of Boothbay Harbor, our historic Victorian Bed and Breakfast has earned the distinction as the "finest B&B on the Waterfront." Our waterfront Inn, located on Boothbay Harbor enjoys the ever changing tides of the Harbor, specializes in gracious Down East hospitality, accommodations with water views, and decks overlooking Boothbay Harbor. Guests love our convenient location, right on the water and just steps to downtown Boothbay Harbor’s shops, restaurants and boating excursions. ... more   less
