We stayed 2 nights. Not much water (for a waterfront B and B), so it's mucky and not possible to launch kayaks as we'd hoped. Everything worked in the room, but it was small with a strange pebble floor and an industrial bathroom. Comfy beds and moth sheets. Nice hot water in the shower but toilet is barely attached to...

So enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous victorian inn that is right on the waterfront. Loved the location as it is in convenient walking distance to the quaint little town and all the shops. Arriving after a long drive for the cute but scrumptious warm out of the oven lobster shaped butter cookies and tea were just the right thing... More

How do you rate a B&B, they are all so quirky? Host? Food? Room? location? They are all a little different than a hotel. Location was great for walking, but you can hear lots of traffic in the am, that might be ok for some. Lots if rooms with decks and places to sit. Passable breakfast and does some nice... More

The Harbour Towne Inn on the Waterfront is a great place to stay. It is conveniently located in town and within walking distance of everything. The breakfast is amazing, delicious and creative, far above normal B&B fare. Homemade cookies and tea are available in the afternoon for your enjoyment.. Stephanie is a great hostess and friendly. Our room was comfortable... More

Our first stay in a Bed & Breakfast & we were extremely pleased with our experience. Greeted with warm cookies fresh out of the oven, & available each afternoon. This is such a lovely three story Inn with beautiful gardens & hanging pots of flowers on the balconies. We asked for a first floor room & it was gorgeous with... More

The B&B was very close to town. Less than a 5 minute walk, even at a slow stroll. It was nice having a porch to sit out on and see the water. You could also walk down to their dock and sit there as well. The breakfast was excellent. We'll be back!

My husband and I are looking forward to planning another stay at the Harbour Towne Inn! Living in Maine, we have taken many day trips to Boothbay Harbor but with the great deal we found on the Harbour Towne Inn, we could not pass up the overnight stay. We were soooo pleased with everything the Inn had to offer .... More

We're English, and lucky enough to visit many a place abroad. This was fantastic in every way. Everything was top notch - indoors and out. (The gardens themselves are wonderful.) Superb breakfast & yummy brownies later in the day. They are located so close to restaurants and shops. We cannot wait to visit again.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 2 nights in this cozy inn (room 1) last week. The bed was so comfortable and we loved the deck. Stephanie is amazing as is her staff. The breakfast was delicious and a special treat as we typically are not breakfast people. The guests were all polite and friendly. Looking forward... More

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
