“Best stay in BBH.”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I have stayed in many places in Boothbay over the years and Harbour Town is easily the best. We had a nice room, Stephanie was a great hostess. She prepared an unbelievable breakfast that was enough for lunch, too.The location is right in the center of the village, a short walk to anywhere. I think the best feature of the Inn were the chairs on the dock. You could sit there with a bottle of wine (or a six pack of Harp) and watch the world go by. Very relaxing.

Beautiful Inn. We try to get away a couple of times a summer. So it's important our quick stays are good ones. Staying at Harbour Towne Inn was more than good...it was wonderful. Stephanie was a superb and attentive host. The room was immaculate. The breakfast was beyond the typical B&B breakfast with breakfast casseroles, fruit dishes, best scones, coffee, juices and more. Best of all, we sat on the dock in Adirondack chairs for hours relaxing and having occasional conversations with other guests. We will be back next summer for another relaxing weekend at Harbour Towne Inn. Thank you Stephanie and keep up the excellent work!

This was a fantastic location!!! Downtown Boothbay Harbour was steps away. We parked our car and never used it. We slept in room 8 which is on the first floor. This room is a great buy. It is a bit unusual because it has a kitchen sink (this is your bathroom sink) and stove. But we did not care. The breakfast were awesome. Ashley makes great quiches and blueberry pancakes. When we arrived in the afternoon there was fresh homemade chocolate chip cookies. We would certainly stay again here

My husband and I stayed at this lovely Inn for the second time- it has such character and charm! Stephanie and Ashley were so friendly and accomodating- we always felt at home! The home cooked breakfasts were yummy !
We stayed in a room on the ground level (rm 8) which was cozy and comfy- loved the wicker chairs outside of the room to just relax- only a few steps from the dock overlooking the harbor! We look for places to stay that radiate friendliness and cleanliness- Harbor Towne Inn has these qualities hands down as well as a great value and location- just a minutes walk to the quaint shops and boat excursions! We already have reservations for next year! Lisa and Dick Ma.

Room Tip: Rooms on ground level or 2nd floor are equally quiet and cozy!

Fantastic location...overlooking the harbor and right in the centre of beautiful Boothboay Harbor close to the quaint galleries,shops,restaurants and cafes....lovely to just aimlessly wander this town! Accomodation can be quite expensive here and we found Harbour Town Inn to be excellent value,welcoming, clean,great self serve breakfast (always including hot dishes as well as cold)
Rooms was very comfortable with wifi, small bathroom and the verandah overlooking the water was very relaxing, coffee/tea and freshly cooked snacks available of an afternoon..Would not hesitate to return.Stayed May 2012.Missy Australia.

Harbour Towne Inn was a wonderful experience and the full breakfast had the most variety of foods we have seen. They served vegetarian and gouda cheese quiches, and a fresh strawberry stuffed french toast with a beautiful fruit bowl. The room was airy, clean and very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and the hostess was warm and friendly. The deck was awesome. Our time could not have been any better! Thanks to Stephanie and her daughter Ashley.

Room Tip: We cannot rank them on swimming pool and fitness center because I think I didn't see any but eve...
