I just left Harbour Towne Inn on the Waterfront after 4 exceptional nights. The house is tucked away in a beautifully kept landscaped yard and is directly on the harbor with a very easy walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor. We stayed in room 4 and our friends stayed in room 1. Both were on the 2nd floor. If you can... More

The place looks nice. We were greeted by an employee she was nice and did ask if we have food allergies. I said yes for me tree nuts. She said "ohh please don't eat anything over there. I made cookies and muffins with nuts". The harbor views are somewhat overstated. We can only see the very end of the harbor... More

I am choosing to review this Inn again as I am impressed whenever I am there. Stefanie, ever the gracious hostess, was in the beautiful gardens when I arrived. Upon walking in the door I was greeted with smell of freshly baked cookies. I stayed in Room 4, which is as lovely as the other rooms that I have seen.... More

We had a lovely time at Boothbay and the Harbour Towne Inn--Stephanie and her daughter (who was helping out the day we arrived) were so conscientious and wanted to make sure that our stay was the best it could be! Breakfast (and afternoon fresh-baked cookies) were much appreciated and we were also provided with tips for the best local restaurants.... More

What a fabulous anniversary we had! From the minute we drove up and saw the fabulous gardens, we knew this trip was going to be everything we hoped for. Stefanie was waiting for us to check in and surprised us with an upgrade to the penthouse suite! What could be a better start than that! The gift of a great... More

The location of the Harbour Towne Inn on the Waterfront is just perfect in town: easy to find and great in walking distance to nice restaurants, the piers, and great little shops!

We stayed here in late July. To our delight we stayed in a large King Bed room with a balcony. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to this room, which was great.

I can't begin to explain how exceptional the Harbour Towne Inn is. We have been staying at B&Bs all over the east coast for the past 15 years & can honestly say that this is one of the finest we have stayed in. Innkeeper Stephanie was wonderful.

This was our second visit to Harbour Towne Inn, but it will not be our last.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
What a thrill and surprise to learn that we have been chosen as the signature image of the annual guide to Maine Guide to Inns and Bed & Breakfast accommodations, published by the Maine Tourism Association. Our sweet little waterfront deck is on the cover of the magazine, as well as the online guide! We hope you'll find your way to our special little spot and share your own special memory of the majestic Maine coast. Located on the waterfront in the heart of the scenic coastal town of Boothbay Harbor, our historic Victorian Bed and Breakfast has earned the distinction as the "finest B&B on the Waterfront." Our waterfront Inn, located on Boothbay Harbor enjoys the ever changing tides of the Harbor, specializes in gracious Down East hospitality, accommodations with water views, and decks overlooking Boothbay Harbor. Guests love our convenient location, right on the water and just steps to downtown Boothbay Harbor’s shops, restaurants and boating excursions. ... more   less
