We spent two nights at the Topside Inn in early October and were more than satisfied with the experience. The driving directions on their website were very helpful and led us right to the inn, where we were greeted cordially by Brian, who gave us a tour of the public areas and then showed us to our room on a hillside overlooking the harbor. The room was immaculate, comfortable, and quiet with all the amenities one expects in a B & B. Homemade cookies were on the counter, and a variety of snacks and a selection of hot teas were always available in the dining area of the main house. Ed prepared great breakfasts including homemade granola, fresh fruit, and the special of the day, which consisted of lemon blueberry pancakes with sausage one day and scrambled eggs with Canadian bacon on a biscuit with hollandaise sauce the second day. Coffee, both regular and decaf, was available from 7 am for early risers. All of the food was beautifully presented and appetizing.
One of the best things about the Topside Inn is its location, which is just a couple of minutes' walk from the hustle and bustle of the harbor with its restaurants, shops, and other activities. Town was noisy, but all was serene up on the hill. Brian and Ed have a very professional and well-run operation. Our stay at Topside Inn was thoroughly enjoyable, and we give it two thumbs up!
