“Fabulous Room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012 via mobile

We absolutely loved our stay at this quaint B&B. We reserved the 3rd floor room and were so pleased with our accommodations. The room had so many very tasteful architectural details, was very serene and peaceful, had a wonderful jacuzzi tub surrounded by windows, and had a nice view of the harbor. Wonderful linens, fresh flowers, bright and airy room...it was so relaxing. My husband and I enjoyed our wine sitting outside on our 3rd floor private balcony and felt like we were in a treehouse! The inn had a wonderful porch also. Everything was within walking distance of the inn. The B&B owner was delightful, the breakfast was delicious and our stay was wonderful. An excellent value for the money. We will definitely return when we're in the area again.

We stayed in a pretty, private cottage connected to the Inn - a lovely, romantic getaway.
The owner was gracious, the innkeeper an incredible cook, and the housekeeper warm and
friendly as well. The location is nice -- walk across the footbridge into "town" and back to
a quieter, less crowded location -- but in walking distance to several restaurants. Both Donna
and Devon offered us good suggestions of other things to do in the area.

Room Tip: Cottage or top floor -- gorgeous window on third floor overlooking water

This was our second stay at the Atlantic Ark and were so pleased we returned. Donna, the owner, takes such pride in what she does and in her inn that it is evident in everything - the decor, the garden, the breakfast and the gracious and warm welcome. Devon's breakfast efforts in the kitchen are scrumptious and served with such elegance, whether outside on the porch or in the more formal dining room. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: The cottage is quieter however, the top floor called Bliss has a spectacular view of the harbot and...

The Atlantic Ark Bed & Breakfast was wonderful. Donna our host is a kind, gentle soul made us feel right at home. She introduced us to all the guest, whom we became fast friends. Devon, Master of the house & kitchen made us incredible vegetarian breakfast. Stuffed french toast, fratadas, scones and so much more. Michelle the house keeper was warm and friendly. The rooms were clean and bright. All the rooms have a view (some spectacular). You are a short, scenic walk to every where. So much to do, so very close. There is a great front porch which you can enjoy cheese and crackers every day at 4pm. At night, there is always tea and a sweet treat waiting in the kitchen just before bed. The Inns gardens are beautiful - equal to the Botanical gardens. What can I say, we are planning to go back. Thanks to Donna, Devon & Michelle.

If we ever return to Boothbay H., it will be to the Atlantic Ark, and only there. The owner Donna is gracious and a wonderful hostess. Devon, who was standing in for her when we first arrived, is a great host and a cook without peer. Michelle is the most helpful person you could hope for. We all became instant friends. The breakfasts are not only delicious, but we found the other guests to be very "simpaticos." We can't recommend this place highly enough. It is great! We wish all B&B's were the same.

This is our 6th year coming to Boothbay and staying at this great Inn, we enjoy visiting with Donna, Michelle and Devon and look forward to Devon's wonderful breakfast every morning. It is located within walking distance to many great restaurants and shops and short car trips to Ocean Point and Lighthouses. Donna and her staff makes our visit to her Inn inviting and personal every time.
