My family did a trip to Boothbay for my dad and his uncle's 70th birthday. 5 couples stayed at the Welch House Inn. We could not have been happier with our choice. This B&B is in a perfect location, and Michael and Susan are extremely warm, hospitable, and accommodating. We had a great stay and we would love to go... More

Great time in a really well run B & B . Michael and Susan are wonderful hosts who made our visit a wonderful experience. The location is right near all the shops and restaurants. The Inn was quiet at night and very comfortable

My family recently stayed at the Welch House Inn to celebrate my husband and his twin brother’s birthday. Our extended family took over 5 of the inn’s rooms for a long weekend AND we also had an entertainer come for the celebration night. Michael could not have been more welcoming and helpful, as we had to move around furniture in... More

I am one of 12 friends who stayed at The Welch House Inn from August 6-8, 2015, occupying six rooms. The location is an easy walk to the waterfront (although the return trip is uphill). Susan's breakfasts were delicious and Michael's advice on sightseeing was helpful. While the steps to the third floor were sometimes overwhelming, the view from the... More

My wife and I love Boothbay Harbor and there is no better place to view its beauty then from the Welch House Inn located high above the harbor. Waking up in the morning, smelling breakfast being prepared by Susan, and seeing the view from our cozy bedroom, is what the Inn is all about. A short walk down the hill... More

Our room was beautiful. The coffee and breakfast were excellent. We loved the wooden fish décor outdoors that we've tried to imitate in our Florida home. It's a great location with beautiful harbor views and walking distance to restaurants and shops.

We enjoyed our 2 night Anniversary getaway at the beautiful Welch House Inn. The Inn is on top of a hill that gives you the BEST view of Boothbay harbor and the town. Also when you walk down the hill there are all the shops, restaurants & piers for boat trips. We could park our car for the 2 days... More

Michel & Susan were the ultimate hosts. Very helpful with area go to places. Susan-you have amazing breakfasts. What a wonderful way to start the day. Walking distance to everywhere. Little hike uphill, so wear your walking shoes. Relaxed with the view of the harbor from the outdoor deck. Their games, music & books in the comfortable common area make... More

Welch house The location of this B&B is great right in downtown Boothbay harbor where you can walk to shops and restaurants. They have 2 nice outdoor spaces where you can enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine. The rooms are maintained adequately. However, the proprietors are fairly cool and systematic, lacking warmth. We have stayed here 2 x a... More

Hello and thanks for your comments. We're very sorry if you were disappointed with certain aspects of your stay, and I apologize if you didn't receive enough personal attention. Early August is our busiest time of the year, and the usual busy-season challenges of welcoming hundreds of visitors each month have been compounded by the fact that we converted to... More

The Welch House Inn is spectacular. Susan and Michael have created a wonderful experience from check in to check out. Our room overlooked the harbor, the view was amazing. The top viewing deck offers beautiful views. Breakfast was delightful. Susan treated us each morning to a lovely meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
