Everyone has their own definition of "outstanding"...that is why sites such as this exist. In planning a quick escape to the Boothbay Harbor area, I read through many reviews. I kept coming back to The Welch House. Never having seen the Inn, but being a bit familiar with Boothbay, I was intrigued. I confess that the advertised Mid week Special... More

Welch House is a great option in Boothbay Harbor. The top of the hill location provides a spectacular view of the harbor and easy walking access to the shops and restaurants of the town. Michael greeted us and gave an excellent recommendation for dinner. We had two rooms, both nicely furnished, with comfortable beds and very clean baths. The public... More

This was our second stay at the Welch house and it won't be our last. The view of the harbor from the back deck is beautiful peaceful! Susan and Michael offer great hospitality, wonderful breakfast menus (love the granola), spotless rooms with very friendly staff. It is in good walking distance of everything you'll want to do.

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
