#10 of 13 B&Bs / Inns in Boothbay Harbor
GreenLeaders Silver level
Centrally located in the mid-coast region of Maine. Only one mile from downtown Boothbay Harbor. Far enough out of town to be away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough to be convenient to all local landmarks and activities, and to hear the foghorns on a foggy day. Beautifully landscaped grounds, lovely flower gardens. Conveniently located to all local landmarks and tourist attractions. Just a little over a mile to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, and just about next door to the Boothbay Harbor Country Club. Rooms and decks are completely non-smoking to ensure the comfort of our guests. Warm, cozy, and impeccably clean. Delicious breakfast including offerings of egg dish of the day, homemade bread and blueberry muffins or blueberry cake, fresh fruit tray, organic cereals, juices, and hot beverages. Beautifully landscaped. No smoking, no pets in consideration of owners and guests with allergies. Family owned and operated for 43 years.

The grounds were beautiful and meticulously groomed. The room and deck were very nice and the area is very quiet. The breakfasts were wonderful! A different hot egg dish each morning - excellent. Fresh and scrumptious muffins (full of blueberries) and pastry. Fresh, perfectly ripened fruits. Great coffee. The hosts are warm and welcoming people. Convenient to the harbor area. We'll be back!

We spent four days at this lodge in Boothbay Harbor in July. We have stayed in many B&B's across the USA and Howard Lodge is one of the very best.The grounds were beautiful. The room was very clean and its outside place to sit was nice. Its location is excellent, only 5 minutes to the town or the beautiful gardens. The breakfast rooms were very nice and all the food was homemade. We will certainly return.

We stayed at picturesque Howard House Lodge for 3 nights. There is a separate building with 2 stories set back in the woods. It is very convenient to park your car and access your room. Each room has a private terrace with views of the woods. The B&B is set on 31 acres, with some nice hiking travels. The landscaping is in keeping with a natural appearance. [The proprietors even offered us some wild geraniums which we had admired.] The rooms are comfortable and pleasant. While there is no ac in the rooms the ceiling fans and the open screened terrace door made the room totally comfortable for sleeping. WiFi in the room was super fast. The proprietors, Ginny and Jimmy are very friendly and helpful. Ginny suggested touring programs to see the area with suggestions for restaurants and even a great location for a picnic and a view of the fireworks on the 4th. Having someone like this to provide tips makes all the difference in a visitors experience and Ginny's assistance was just excellent. Lodging includes a homecooked breakfast each morning in a breakfast room or on a protected terrace. Homemade blueberry muffins are outstanding. My NYC travel pal put on weight eating these muffins each morning. Each day featured a different egg dish such as a baked frittata. It's only a 3-4 minute ride from the forested serenity of the B&B into downtown Boothbay Harbor with its shops and waterfront views. There's no doubt that I would stop at this B&B the next time I am traveling in Maine.

After traveling to a number of locales (city and country) all around New England and beyond over several decades, this is one we enjoy over and over again. Spotlessly clean inside and maintained so well outside, with flowers everywhere, this is a reliably comfortable place to stay where you get more than your money's worth. Rooms are spacious and particularly perfect if you have any inclination toward claustrophobia with glass doors and porches overlooking gardens and fields. The breakfast is fresh, tasty, varied; the hosts friendly and helpful. We have also stayed in-town at Boothbay Harbor, but prefer the Howard House's central position making visits to all areas of the Boothbay region easier. Boothbay is a beautiful place to visit and Howard House makes the visit all that more enjoyable.

We have stayed here so many times, and we look forward to it each year. Ginny and Jim are the most wonderful hosts — ready to give recommendations for restaurants and what to do in the immediate area and beyond. The property is beautiful— so many flowers even early in the season. It is also located outside the very busy Boothbay Harbor. Just a wonderful quiet setting. The rooms are clean and spacious with comfortable beds. I believe that most people we meet here are return visitors. Breakfast is such a treat! There was a delicious egg dish each day, along with a beautiful fruit tray, and the most tasty blueberry muffins and lemon poppyseed muffins and other wonderful treats that come from the kitchen. Also cereal, toast, juice and coffee. We look forward to returning next year!
