We had a number of out of town guests staying at the Welch House for a 65th birthday party. All guests were very happy with the accommodations. The breakfast choices were terrific, the common area provided opportunities for conversation and the rooms were clean and well appointed. Michael and Susan are terrific hosts. And, even in the midst of a... More

Wonderfully cozy, gorgeous views out our 3 windows. A very romantic place, an easy walk to town for dinner and shopping. The French toast and scones were delicious! We will be back, just made it part of our love story :)

My wife and I were celebrating our 35th Anniversary. We enjoyed the views from the Inn and the breakfasts. We were there in October and also enjoyed the peace and quiet. The hosts were great. I would recommend it to anyone traveling to this area.

My husband and I stayed at the Welch Inn to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary. This was only the second time we have stayed at a B & B - and - thanks to the Welch Inn - it won't be our last. Susan and Michael are the quintessential hosts! They are welcoming and warm and made our stay memorable.... More

I stayed here the end of September. A gorgeous weekend. Michael and Susan are very gracious hosts. Welcomed us into the Inn, showed us to our rooms. The rooms are what you would expect from an old home. Small but comfortable. The bathrooms are also small but clean, they are either en suite or down the hall. If down the... More

The location in Boothbay Harbor was close to everything, breakfasts all homemade and very interesting, friendliness of Susan/Michael, the owners, very welcoming as were the other guests we enjoyed at breakfast. Sitting room adjacent to breakfast and deck very nice for early risers. Don't miss the Botanical Gardens 3-4 miles from the Inn - plan on at least 2 hour... More

This is our second visit to the Welch House Inn and we were pleased with our stay. We "won" our 2-night stay because Michael and Susan donate a 2-night stay to public television stations as their way of supporting PBS. For us it was a win-win mini vacation. The house is charming and our hosts were most accommodating. We came... More

We commandeered the whole top floor for a girlfriend's weekend! A huge deck off of the top floor was our main perch during what had to be one of THE most perfect weather weekends we've had this year! We lucked out all around as the view was spectacular, our rooms were inviting, our hosts were top notch and the breakfasts... More

I stayed here three nights with my spouse and couldn't be more pleased with our experience. It's a lovely large home with plenty of amenities and a view of Boothbay Harbor you will never forget. Our room was comfortable and just perfect for us, with a great view. The breakfasts were beyond compare--absolutely delicious. Our hosts were wonderful--helpful at any... More
