We were in one of the smaller rooms (room 2) but found it very comfortable and accommodating. Breakfasts superb. Hosts welcoming and helpful. Other guests congenial. Great location. We felt we hit the jackpot on this one!

Stayed: August 2009, traveled as a couple

Loved the place. Nice and quiet and a short walk to anywhere. Love the tea and cookies in the afternoon and just the whole feel of the place...there are loads of things to do at the Inn as well. Movies, books, games, etc. They've done a fabulous job renovating the place and the delicious breakfasts every morning are to die for! YUM! Although, if you really want the feel of the town, make sure you go AFTER May 31st. We went just before and nothing was open yet, but we drove the coast and loved it.

Our room was very clean and comfortable with a balcony on two sides and a wide picture window overlooking the sea. We were made to feel very welcome. The home-made granola, the variety of the fresh fruits and the 'surprise' hot special at breakfast got each day off to a great start. Boothbay Harbor has great restaurants and art galleries and everywhere is within walking distance. There were several nature reserves in the area to explore.

The Inn is an esperience initself. We didn't want to leave. Ed and Brian are great hosts. We looked forward to Ed's delicious breakfast every morning and to Brian's morning greeting. It is a great weekend getaway or vacation spot.

The Topside Inn was one of those places that surpasses your expectations! I spent a week with my elderly mother. Brian and Ed are extremely hospitable Inn Keepers and they have though tof so many little things that make staying there an exceptional value. Blankets and Bug spray in the basket on the porch so you can cuddle up in a rocking chair on the porch or an adirondack chair on the lawn and watch the sunset. Freshly baked cookies and hot beverages every afternoon - especially great on a foggy afternoon when you are playing one of the games they have available or reading a book/magazine from their library. I looked forward to the breakfast every day - Ed is not just a hobby Chef - he is a creative Chef! Lime Hollandaise on the eggs benedict - yummy. They were most gracious our special dietayr needs, never making us feel like we were putting them out. They were also accomodating to our special needs in our room * they do not have handicap accesable rooms, howver we found room 20 to work very well*. Walk to dinner, walk to shopping - avoid paying parking lot fees. Close to cruises. They have great suggestions on where to dine and what to do.
We liked room 20 because it was large, had a refrigerator and two beds. We moved to 9 and the view was better but the room was smaller and no fridge and harder for my mother to negotiate. It would be perfect for able bodies folks.
Their staff was most friendly and the place was impeccably clean!
Great views/Great Food/Great Staff = Great Value
Next time I will spend more than a week!
While you are there - check out the Lobster Dock and say hi to Mitch the owner - he is a great guy that also is very accomodating with special dietary requests. The Puffin Cruise on Hardy Cruises out of New Harbor followed by dinner the Seagull Restaurant at the Pemaquid Light House was the highlight and the Botanical Gardens were great activities.

Attentive and pleasant service, nice spot above but v. close to downtown Boothbay, restaurant quality breakfast, attractive/comfortable furnishings. You really get your money's worth. Brian and Ed make you feel like you are a VIP for your stay.
