We spent 3 nights in early October at this beautiful B & B in the Bliss suite. Located on the East side of Boothbay Harbor away from the Hustle Bustle of the crowds however walking distance to just over the footbridge to all the activity. The owner Donna couldn't be more sweet in her personality and oh so accommodating. Cleanliness is important to her and it showed especially during these tough Covid times. We cant say enough how perfect and beautiful our stay was. Donna, we will be back.

The Atlantic Ark Inn served as a magical retreat for our first trip to Boothbay, and Donna was a delight. She kept us well-informed and well-fed. Her blueberry French toast could win awards. We will certainly be returning in the years to come!

The only word I can use to accurately describe my stay at Atlantic Ark, is perfect. Perfect Inn. Perfect room. Perfect location. And most of all, perfect host. The Inn itself is beautiful. Charming, well appointed, and with a gorgeous view of the bay. The room; clean, quaint, with graceful touches and accents. And Donna, our host, well, she’s the best part. A more kind and caring woman you will not find. And probably the best cook in all of Boothbay Harbor! When I say, don’t miss her incredible breakfasts, I mean it!! I’ve been visiting Boothbay Harbor for years, and it was a ‘happy accident’ that brought me to the Atlantic Ark Inn this time around. But I will never stay anywhere else again. Can’t wait for my next trip!

I stayed at three B&B's this past week in Maine. Donna was the only one that still found a way to serve us two marvelous breakfasts despite and following covid requirements. The other two just said they would not. Yes- I will be writing their reviews as well! The location is scenic, view of the harbor, easy walk across the bridge into town, and we were served breakfast through the window onto the wrap around porch, with coffee waiting each morning. Two different full breakfasts with mint and parsley from the garden.

This was another great time at the B&B, My wife and I were on our 15 wedding anniversary.We had two nights and both were wonderful. We really injoy the breakfast and also being able to talk to the other people that were staying there during the meal. Dona is a wonderful cook and was very accommodating. for us. I felt she was there for us and the other guest. To make sure we got the full benifits of her B&B. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. We are looking forward to staying next year.
