“Ahhhh... Maine & Brown's Wharf”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Technically, we stayed here in August of 2011, & I'm slow with the review... If you can, get one of the corner rooms, the view is awesome. Just staring at the harbor from the windows or the deck will relax you! Charming lobster boats are docked next to the hotel, and the flower boxes everywhere are beautiful. We loved it here and had a hard time leaving.

We stayed at Brown's for 4 nights in June/July and it is still our favorite place to stay in Maine. We always book a room on the third floor/waterfront ... sitting on the balcony overlooking the harbor is just so peaceful and if lucky we watch lobster boats come in and unload their catch. Often there is a elegant yacht tied up to the dock ... this year a 91/2 million dollar job ... we watched the crew clean, polish and stock and then finally a party of 8 boarded ... oh how the other half lives! It is across the harbor from all the hustle and bustle of Boothbay but just a short ride or shuttle trip to visit the bustling shopping mecca. Spent one day on a whale watch and actually saw several whales. The resturant serves great lobster at reasonable prices and the breakfasts are also good. Staff is friendly and service was great . We will be back.

Room Tip: Third floor ... there is an elevator

We love the Brown's Wharf Inn. Our family has been staying there for years. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the views are spectacular!! We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Boothbay Harbor!

We've stayed at Browns Wharf Inn about 4 times and there is none better. Service is excellent and the location is great. You will not be disappointed. It's where we will always go back.

We have been staying at Browns Wharf for 15 years, and we don't think there is a better choice for location, cleanliness, friendliness and attention to detail. More recently, we have been accompanied by our children and grandchildren, and they love Browns Wharf as much as we do. After years of checking out every peninsula, we are convinced we have found the BEST HOTEL and the BEST VIEW in all of Maine. You can use it as a starting point or you can sit on the deck and watch a real fishing village at work. Heaven!

My husband and I stayed at Brown's Wharf Inn for 3 days during the month of July. We were originally going to Bar Harbor, but decided to spend one day in Boothbay Harbor first. We loved it so much that we never went to Bar Harbor.

We can't say enough about the location, the food, the friendly staff and even the weather! We will definitely be back again next year. Thanks Brown Family!!!

The inn is right on the harbor with great views from all rooms. Comfy beds, nice fridge to store a couple of cold ones to enjoy on the room deck overlooking the water. The staff, front desk, restaurant, bar, housekeepers, could not have been nicer. The restaurant was right on the water and the food was great! Perfect place to see the sunset before you take off for town a night. Short walk to the footbridge that takes you right to town.

I was so impressed with every thing and can not wait to go back! Price is right too!! Don't miss this.
