“Great Bed & Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

We stayed at The Harbour Towne Inn for three nights while vacationing in Boothbay Harbor. Prior to our arrival they had defrosted the refrigerator and had not cleaned up the wet towels before we checked in. Once that was cleaned up, the rest of our stay was great. We had a great room with a balcony that overlooked the bay. Breakfast was always delicious. Something for everyone. The location was great. It was within walking distance of town so there was no need to drive. I would definitely stay here again.

Everything from arrival to departure was great. Doris was the inn keeper for the weekend and she was exceptional. She made the breakfasts and daily baked good snacks. They were beyond delicious. The inn is lovely and quaint. Nothing fancy but very comfortable. The room was spacious and comfortable and even had a small fridge. The locations was perfect, close to town yet enough distance that it was not noisy. I would highly recommend the harbour towne inn.

As part of our B&B road trip we stayed at this quaint B&B in Boothbay Harbor. The Inn is located within walking distance of the town center and has its own plentiful parking. The grounds are very nicely kept and the rooms are just exquisitely decorated. Our room was on the street side with a bay window and we felt at home immediately.
The buffet style breakfast was truly delicious and we always felt at home chatting with our host Stefanie who managed to divide her time with all guests.
I definitely recommend this Inn and hopefully get a chance to stay again in the future.

One item needs mentioning: the Inn is located on a main artery and early morning traffic will be heard, so a room at the rear of the house may be better suited to some.

I booked a room at the last minute with some co-workers when we were visiting for a sailing regatta and it couldn't have been any better! Our room was comfortable, clean, and had loads of Maine character! Enjoy your stay!!

We visited Harbour Towne late June 2013 and can't stop talking about the great time we had.
Our Inn Keeper, Stefanie was over the top accommodating to all 14 of us who were together for
a cousin's 50th wedding anniversary. The rooms were all very clean and nicely decorated with most having a harbor view. Plenty of outside seating on covered porches to relax and take in the beauty of Boothbay Harbor. Short walk to the village with many wonderful shops and restaurants. If you want friendly, helpful, comfortable accommodations at reasonable rates with
a delicious breakfast included then Harbour Towne Inn will go out of their way to make your stay a best memory maker. Thanks Stefanie and we hope to do it again in the near future.

Room Tip: The "Pent House" had a full kitchen and living/dining areas. Great for a family. Wonderfu...

I had never stayed at a B&B before but was delightfully surprised! The food was amazing, and there's a private dock towards the back of the house with chairs to sit and look at the stars. The room was a bit underwhelming-decoration wise, but super affordable. Definitely recommend.
