Extremely clean, six room inn within walking distance of shops, restaurants, docks, etc. Off street parking for six vehicles. We stayed in Room #1 which was large and well planned. Furniture was in very good condition and every lamp and switch worked. The bathroom was modern and very clean with no complaints of knees touching walls, no low water pressure or not enough hot water. There is a shared deck with seating there and on the front porch and back lawn down to the cove. The cove is where we saw the blue heron each day of our stay.
Breakfast was okay, but nothing spectacular. A warm entrée each morning with plenty of coffee, juice, fruit, bread or muffin, yogurt, etc. It would be nice if breakfast were available a little later each morning as we hate to be on a schedule while on our days off. Maria, the young Romanian student who has worked there for the last few summers is most pleasant and really works hard to keep breakfast moving and all the rooms super neat and clean.
The hosts are pleasant and most helpful. Phil is there each morning for breakfast and is full of interesting information which he shares liberally. He really should be the spokesman for Boothbay as he has plenty of brochures, can provide directions and suggestions, and offers to help with reservations if needed. Laura was heavily invested in the design and construction of the property and it shows. The property and furnishings are lovely.
We will no doubt consider the Blue Heron again when in the Boothbay area.
