“Simply amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

My boyfriend and I loved this B&B! It is in a gorgeous location with beautiful rooms and views. There were tons of books and perfect little reading nooks. The breakfast was delicious and the owners for super friendly.

There isn't a ton to do in Boothbay Harbor, but I would definitely recommend staying a night or two here. It is the perfect quintessential Maine B&B that you read about in books.

We visited Topside Inn as part of our honeymoon at the start of October. We stayed 2 nights and could not have been happier there. Our room had the most incredible views over the bay from two aspects, a lovely balcony, was spotless and very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and sitting on the porch in a rocking chair looking out on the sunset over the bay was such a treat. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and all the facilities provided make you feel welcome and pampered. We stayed two nights but would happily have stayed much longer.

We would highly recommend Topside Inn to anyone in the area - it is a wonderful place to stay.

Room Tip: The Windward guesthouse rooms overlooking the water are wonderful.

We stayed here two nights in early October. The guys who are in charge of the hotel (Brian and Ed) seem like real professionals who understand the hospitality business and the needs of the traveler.

Our room was absolutely spotless. The overlook to the harbor from our room made each morning memorable----especially if you can be up at sunrise. My wife loved the library inside the main house and the diverse collection of books and reading materials. Now all I hear is "why can't you build one like that in OUR house? etc etc.

The breakfast is worth getting up for....all fresh, and specially made. Excellent granola as well as hot food. The breakfast room is also equipped for Wi-Fi so you can read your local news if you wish.

Boothbay Harbor itself is worth the journey, especially if you like the rugged Maine coast and the charming homes that decorate the coast.

I would highly recommend staying here if you find yourself in Boothbay Harbor.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. I'm not sure if every room has one, but it's worth it

For over 30 years I have longed for a Maine Coast vacation at a picture perfect hilltop inn. Waking to the crisp fall air and perfect cup of coffee, while overlooking the scenic harbor. That is exactly what my wonderful husband, Ed, Brian, and the great guys at Topside Inn provided. Our stay at Topside far exceeded any of our expectations. Fantastic breakfasts, spectacular views, clean & comfortable rooms and friendly service can't begin to describe our trip of a lifetime! Bootthbay Harbor and Topside Inn....Thank you so much!!

Room Tip: Loved our corner room #14 with a great view of the harbor!

My husband & I stayed in Room 8, loved the decor & having the bottom level all to ourselves. The fridge and microwave was an added bonus. Breakfasts were wonderful, the homemade granola was awesome! Topside is very crisp & clean, peaceful setting with lovely views. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the Boothbay region.
