“It's all true”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2011

This property truly deserves the reviews it has gotten. It is so attractive, even passerbys stop to admire the beautiful flowers, and it is SO clean and convenient to the stores and restaurants of Boothbay. The waterviews from your porch area are beautiful and oh so peaceful yet you are within walking distance from the main area of town.
Reviewers often mention the helpfulness of Laura and Phil, now there is also Maria, a student from Romania who has assumed a "manager/cook" position and within less than a month seems a seasoned professional. Another plus for this outstanding B&B

We just spent 2 perfect days at the Blue Heron and we could not have been more pleased! Phil and Laurie are the perfect hosts - they are there to give you any information about the local area and special tips about "must see" places, but they let you have your privacy. Phil cooks a great breakfast - his French Toast Casserole is excellent! The location of the Blue Heron is perfect -it is just steps away from the shops and harbor. But, if you are so inclined, you can just spend the day sitting on the deck with a good book watching the tides going in or out. The rooms are beautifully decorated with items they acquired while living in England and Korea. We can't wait to go back to the Blue Heron! Oh, I forgot to mention there is parking which can be a problem in this harbor town.

Room Tip: Their welbsite is excellent.

The beautiful flowers will be the first thing that enchants you about this A+ bed & breakfast. Inside the rooms & view are absolutely breathtaking! The breakfasts too were scrumptious & Phil's hospitality was exceptional. Our room had every comfort we could ask for including a wide, flat screen TV, fireplace, fridge & even a microwave (something we never had in any other b&b we had been to.) Boothbay Harbor is a beautiful location w/plenty of shops, restaurants & wonderful boat cruises. Out of all the b&b's we have been to, The Blue Heron Seaside Inn, Boothbay Harbor, ME was by far the best!!! We highly recommend it.

We chose the Inn on the internet from its pictures of the rooms. A bit tricky to find with the GPS. It is so beautiful ! Laura's flowers on Townsend Avenue are wonderful. Sitting on your porch, you are able to observe the tides. Phil's breakfasts are a treat. Great granola recipe !! The Inn is beyond immaculately clean. There is so much detail in everything there. Great off street parking and it's walkable to absolutely everywhere - either side of the bridge.

The prettiest Band B on the block. The front looks like an English country garden. The back porches are private and look over the beautiful harbor. You can see the lights of the waterside restaurants at nite. The smells are wonderful. I especially loved the salt air breezes blowing through our windows. Our two room suite was beautiful and sparkling clean. Our innkeeper, Phil was great. Thank you for sharing your wife's Vicory french toast recipe, cant wait to make it. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

Beautiful English gardens surround the Blue Heron Seaside Inn entrance and once inside views of the harbor are visible from every room. Great attention to detail, knowledgeable, friendly hosts, and clean comfortable rooms make this a great Boothbay Harbor stay.

We just returned from our vacation in Boothbay Maine and stayed four nights at the sooo clean Blue Heron, owned and operated by home grown wife and husband Laura and Phil. If not on the computer, you may catch Laura playing with her English garden, absolutely beautiful. Phil is a man of many tales and is always available for advice on what to do, where to eat, etc. Breakfasts are deliciously made by Phil that beg you to take seconds. As for the Inn itself, we have never stayed at a prettier, better kept and cleaner (and the latter was the most important) Inn than the Blue Heron Seaside Inn. So tastefully decorated with antique furniture, and clean, clean, clean! Even the outside required taking several pictures due to its beauty. Did I forget to mention how clean it is? The nicest owners you'll ever meet, the most tasteful inn you'll ever stay at, a most memorable relaxing trip. Just a two minute walk from town. Thank you Laura and Phil.
