“very pleasant visit”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the inn for a couple of nights right after Labor Day. Our room was the "Bliss" on the third floor. Beautiful view of harbor from queen size bed and small balcony. Very comfortable furniture and bed. Very nice bathroom with jacuzzi tub, but no shower, which was ok, but a little surprising. The inn is decorated with antiques, very tastefully done, in my opinion. Not loaded with knick knacks, pillows, etc. Very clean establishment! . And the breakfasts were very good.; cooked by Devon, the innkeeper. Very good restaurants we could walk to and footbridge into town is just short distance walk. We would definitely recommend this inn to anyone.

Room Tip: I only know that our room the "Bliss" had a harbor view, on the third floor. Possiblyn a...

We didn't see much of the owner (Donna) but her staff was always available and Very, VERY helpful.
My wife absolutely loved the cheese and crackers set out in the afternoon, the treats made fresh every evening and the breakfast's were fit for royalty!! I have never seen a meal where I wanted to take a picture and show it to my friends!! Until this trip!

At first I was nervous about the breakfast's because of some of the reviews I had read about being strictly vegetarian as I am a big meat eater! But my nerves were calmed after the first morning. There wasn't any meat, but Holy moly can they cook. I have never seen a meal where I wanted to take a picture and show it to my friends!! Until this trip!

The staff is originally from Jamaica and I was just there last year and I can tell you Donna must've stole the best cook from the Island!! I definately plan on returning to Maine and when I do you can bet I'll be taking a trip up to the Atlantic Ark Inn and staying for a couple!!
I would recommend to anyone!!

We stayed hare for two nights with our two kids. It was a wonderful experience, the owner, Donna was not there but we were wonderfully cared for by Devon and Michelle. They were really helpful and gracious. The breakfasts as cooked up by Devon were amazing. We will recommend this B & B to everybody who goes to Booth Bay. The anytime tea and coffee and cheese in the afternoon are wonderful touches and gives this B & B and edge over the others.

My husband and I were married at the end of July and spent our honeymoon in August on the coast of Maine. We started our trip in Bar Harbor and ended in Boothbay Harbor, staying at the Atlantic Ark Inn. This was our first Bed and Breakfast experience and we were very pleased! The staff was wonderful!! We stayed in the biggest room, Bliss, and it was the entire attic of a renovated home. The room has a whirlpool bath, big enough for two, and had a deck with a beautiful view of the harbor. Location is everything when you travel and we hit the jackpot with The Atlantic Ark Inn. We walked to dinner or shopping each day and took a drive to Ocean Point, which was only a few miles away. Breakfast has never tasted so good and it seemed as though such great care was taken to ensure our stay was perfect. The house was filled with books to read, a few games and there was always fresh tea and coffee! We would definately stay there again!
