Reviewed August 7, 2005

We stayed for five nights in a second floor room at the front of the main house, with a terrific view of the outer harber. The inn was extremely clean and the room was pleasant, comfortable, and equipped with both a phone (handy when our cell didn't work) and TV-VCR. The best surprise was the wonderfully large bathroom, with a 4 x 6' shower my husband just loved. The breakfasts were imaginative and ample, and included a big bowl of fresh fruit each morning. Homemade cookies often appeared in the afternoons, and coffee/tea are available any time. Ed and Brian are excellent hosts who have thought of everything, from books and maps to bright lightbulbs over each side of the bed. The view from the inn is lovely and there's a big porch with plenty of comfortable chairs. The town and harbor are just a short walk down the hill. There is plenty of parking. We can't wait to go back!

Stayed at the Topside July '05 for 1 night. While the Inn has two motel type buildings, I booked two rooms in the old Inn. The rooms were nicely decorated and the common areas were very well put together to give an inviting and welcoming environment. There was no A/C but in Boothbay on top of a hill overlooking the harbor, the air was cool enough to make the rooms comfortable. The hosts were very nice and the breakfasts very tasty. The owners were away most of the winter and it took a few weeks to hear back on my reservation request. I'm glad I waited for a reply. It was worth the effort. My tourbook said the staff never showed up to help and the tourbook writer left without staying. We found the staff very attentive and willing to help with luggage, dinner reservations etc.

Brian and Ed are fantastic hosts. Thier attention to detail cannot be faulted. The rooms are magnificent, the view is stupendous and the breakfasts are wonderful.
We stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed every minute of our stay(even the foggy days) We have stayed in many hotels/motels in the USA but this was our first B & B. If we return to this region again we will definately stay at the Topside Inn. 10/10 - Five Stars etc.etc.

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at the Topside. We loved it! We would've stayed longer if possible. The Inn is very tastefully decorated throughout. In fact, Coastal Living should check this place out! Brian and Ed were wonderful hosts, paying attention to every kind of detail and nothing was overlooked. The Inn has the best view in town over the harbor.
Breakfasts were exellent and we particulary loved the granola.
We would certainly wouldn't hesitate to stay here again as it met all of our requirements for a wonderful stay.

My family stayed here during the Windjammer Days Festival. Brian and Ed were wonderful host. They really know how to pay attention to detail. The breakfast was so delicious. We stayed in room 9. The view was beautiful!!! You would be missing out if you go go Maine and don't stay here. We loved that we did not have to get in our car. It was a nice walk into town to the shops, and harbor. Thanks to Brian and Ed for making our vacation everything I dreamed it would be.

Our Stay at the Topside Inn over Memorial Day Weekend was very memorable. The Inn is beautiful, the setting gorgeous the breakfast top notch and the Inn owners/ hosts are just amazing..."non-stop" energy and great to talk to.

Our room #14 had an amazing view of the entire harbor! Our room was clean, cozy and quiet. In addition, having access to the Inn for barware, plates, silverware etc. for a quick take out meal and cocktails, reading by fireside with one of the many interesting books offered or sitting in an adirondack chair overlooking the harbor all added up to one of our more enjoyable mini- vacations ever.

We cannot wait to get back for a Fall visit at the Topside- So go and enjoy, do not hesitate you will love it!
