First off Michael and Susan run an amazing B&B. It is clean and wonderfully decorated with eye for comfort. Michael was very accommodating when i had to change our reservation three times. He did not charge me extra even though he had to juggle rooms. He is fair with his pricing. We ended up with best view of Boothbay and... More

The view of the Harbor was even better than we expected. The room was situated perfectly at the top with great views as well. (We stayed in the Southern Cross room). The breakfast selections were delicious and interesting. And of course some amazing blueberry pancakes. Also they have a breakfast bar as well with yogurt, their own granola, cereal and... More

My husband and I traveled to Boothbay Harbor on our honeymoon without reservations and found the Welch Inn B&B! What a great place! Michael and Susan were great, very nice people. Susan cooked a beautiful and scrumptious breakfast. Cozy atmosphere and beautiful views. The grounds are also very nice. Comfortable and clean! We will definitely stay there again when we... More

My husband and I stayed at Welch House twice. We started each day by watching sunrise from the decks. The B&B has a wide open view of the harbor from top of the hill. It is absolutely beautiful, different from what see from street level or from the walk-bridge. We love the breakfast, and Michael and Susan are very nice... More

We were visiting the area for a wedding and the bride and groom highly recommended this place. Now I know why they loved it so much. We loved out stay! Breakfast was delicious and the view was incredible. If you are going for a long weekend try to get a room with a view.

My husband and I chanced upon Welch House Inn as we were visiting Boothbay Harbor and were not disappointed. The rooms were beautifully appointed, the innkeepers quite gracious and care was given to every detail that might make a guest feel more comfortable such as easy access to hot beverages, videos and cozy fireplaces. The breakfast was exceptionally generous and... More

My husband discovered this charming B&B on a trip to Maine several years ago quite by accident. Each time we have returned to Maine, we stay at the Welsh House Inn B&B. Mike and Susan make you feel right at home. They prepare an awesome breakfast everyday (they do share their receipts), and you can look out over Boothbay Harbor... More

I love this place. The breakfasts are out of this world and so is the view! I could not give a higher recommendation for a place to stay in Boothbay if you want an ocean view. The Welch House is on a very high hill near the water, so you can see every part of the harbor. The owners Susan... More

We traveled to Maine in the fall and loved staying at the Welch House B & B. We plan to go again this summer and will stay there again. I eat their granola (they share the recipe) every morning with my yogurt and is a great reminder of our wonderful stay in Boothbay Harbor! Love the dining room, the breakfasts,... More

Good morning, Michael and Susan, I woke up hungry this morning and started thinking about the variety of breakfasts that Mike and I had while we were guest. The French toast,  the German pancakes, and the omlete were absolutely delicious....different and unique and absolutely delicious. Mike and I fell in love with Booth Harbor.  The village itself was so quiet... More
