Travelers' Choice
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, most 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. Free of street parking.

Stephanie was a wonderful host. When I entered to check in, there was this amazing smell of chocolate chip cookies that she was baking. The check in process was super easy and our room was exactly what we were after for a last minute “get away”. My wife and I found everything about our stay to be what we look for when traveling. Thank you Stephanie and we’ll be staying here again.

I just returned from a week’s stay at Stephanie’s inn. It was a great place to unwind and perfectly situated so as to not have to worry about parking—a very short walk into the busy and boutiquey town center and yet far enough away to find quiet spots both inside and outside the inn. Stephanie is a great cook who makes wonderful breakfasts and she is a lovely hostess, warm and welcoming. She’s the kind of person you’d like to have as your neighbor (instead of the neighbor you have).

My husband and I were in Boothbay Harbour looking at property and decided to stay here, we were the only people in the entire place. The innkeeper Stefanie was amazing, kind warm and very gracious. The breakfast she made us was perfections, and also made home baked cookies in the afternoon. Our room was in the front of the inn, and had the most comfortable bed ever. I can't wait to go back. I highly recommend this wonderful waterfront inn. You will not be disappointed. We were there during a big storm, and she also had the walkway cleared off Immediately. She is very sweet and I imagine I could be friends with her in the future.

We picked Boothbay Harbour as our home base for a short trip to mid-coast Maine in September. The Harbour Towne Inn was a perfect place to stay. It is a B&B in an old house in a more residential block of Townsend Ave, just about a block from the beginning of the commercial;tourist area. Each room has access to a mostly private outdoor space and it is on the water. Coffee is available early and also in the afternoon along with homemade cookies, and there is a delicious hot breakfast every morning. The rooms are comfortable and the innkeeper Stefanie was very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in Boothbay Harbor.
