“7th visit from the UK.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2011

Once again Brian and Ed were the perfect hosts. We cannot fault The Topside anywhere.Everything is spotless,the breakfasts are wonderful and the views fantastic,especially from room 9 in the Windward section. We arrived some years ago as Brian and Ed's guests and now consider them to be our friends. You will not be dissappointed if you book at The Topside. if it is worth travelling 4000 miles for you can bet it is good!

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the Windward section but all rooms are of excellent decor and cleanliness

This was our second stay at the Topside Inn and we will keep going back! Brian and Ed are fantastic hosts, and you just can't beat the experience at the Topside Inn. We love everything about it including the beautiful simple decor, the delicious breakfasts, the comfortable chairs on the porch, the unbeatable view, the flowers, the afternoon cookies, the snacks, tea, coffee, ice available all day, and the proximity to town. Can't imagine staying anywhere else in Boothbay Harbor!

The room's decor immediately put us in the mood to relax. We loved being able to walk into Boothbay Harbor, do some exploring, enjoy wonderful seafood, and then return to the quiet at Topside. We'll definitely recommend it to friends and family. Hope to visit next time we're on the Maine coast.

We've been coming to the Topside Inn for 6 or 7 years, and we love it. Brain and Ed, the owners have created a peaceful, warm, homey and inviting inn. The views are spectacular, the staff is great and Ed's breakfast's are fabulous. The rooms are large and very comfortable. We can't say enough great things about the place!
