“Way beyond our expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

We found the Inn after desperately searching for many days, and were grateful to get a room during the busy late July season. We were expecting "good enough" but instead found a piece of heaven in Boothbay Harbor. We stayed in the separate cabin which was pristine, comfortable,peaceful and had a view out to the harbor. The bed was wonderful- we slept so well. In the morning, we were treated to a gourmet breakfast of a french toast and berry creation of Devon which was astounding, really. We ate out on the deck with some newly made friends from Colorado (we're from New Hampshire) and it was scrumptious. Besides being a superb cook, Devon was friendly and helpful. So too was Donna, who gave us a tip the evening we arrived to try out the Whales Tail where we had a very nice outdoor dinner of lobster and clam chowder- both were terrific. I'm not one to write reviews but I wanted others to discover the Atlantic Ark in the future- unassuming from the outside, but warm, friendly and nourishing within!

We found this little gem on Trip Advisor and stayed there during a recent trip to the Booth Bay area. We were so completely delighted to find such a discovery, we wanted to share our experience with others looking for the quintessential harbor-front inn. Great location on the quaint and quiet side of the harbor, where a short walk across the footbridge into 'town' will transport you right into the heart of the coastal Maine experience. Wonderful innkeepers, delicious breakfast, great porch(es)...we loved it!

We're just back from staying at Atlantic Ark and we echo what all the other reviewers have ranted about. Devon, Michelle and Donna do it with their unique style and you WILL feel pampered!. We REALLY liked, too, that Atlantic Ark was an easy short stroll AWAY from the downtown hub bub. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

We went back again this year for another visit. The Inn is lovely, spottless and convienent to walk over the foot bridge to Booth bay. The Best is the staff though. Donna, Devon and Michelle go out of their way to make you feel at home. Devons cooking is amazing too. The breakfasts couldnt be better. I also love the crackers and cheese at 4 pm. We came back every day to recharge and have a glass of wine and sit on the porch in the rockers and just Relax. It was great. At night there is tea and homemade cookies enjoy before bed. So nice. We will be back! Thankyou for making it so special for us!

My husband and I just returned from the Atlantic Ark Inn where we stayed for five days. It was fantastic. The Inn is charming and spotless. We stayed in the cottage out back, which was formerly used to make and store lobster traps but has been renovated beautifully. We had our own porch with a peaceful garden and view of the bay. The day started with an exceptionally prepared breakfast shared at a common table with fellow travelers either on the porch or in the dining room, which is furnished with tasteful antiques. Donna, Devon and Michelle are warm and welcoming and very knowledgeable about the area. They go the extra mile for their guests. It was our first time in Maine and their suggestions (and directions!) were very useful. Even with a 10 hour drive home, we can't wait to return! We highly recommend this inn.

My husband and I returned to the Atlantic Ark Inn as we do most every year. Once again it was a relaxing and wonderful stay. Breakfast on the porch looking at the harbor was great. We spent quite a bit of time in the rocking chairs just enjoying the view. We love the cottage and the landscaping. I would certianly recommend the Atlantic Ark Inn to all who are looking for peace and relaxation. Thank you Donna!

This B&B/Inn is very charming, warmly decorated and the owner and staff are helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was made fresh and satisfied everyone at the table. The afternoon cheese and evening cookies just made things better. The room was clean and quiet, we had two very restful nights.
