Harbour Towne Inn on the Waterfront
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 9, 2012

We arrived to the smell of fresh baked cookies. Our host was extremely welcoming and showed us around the facility. Magic Dream Bars were in the oven for later. They were very yummy. The room was cozy with a nice balcony. Great place to sit and watch the tide roll in. Overall, a really relaxing place right in town. My partner (David) and I were very pleased with the choice. The room was comfortable with nice amenities. The balcony was nice and good chairs to sit in. Adirondack Chairs along the water too.

I highly recommend the Harbor Towne. And the hosts were wonderful.

Thanks
Christopher.

This was my first time staying at the Harbour Towne and I'm afraid that any other place I stay at will never measure up. From the gardens, to the finishing touches, to the beautiful penthouse, to the sumptuous view, I cannot say enough about this amazing haven. Ashley was a gracious hostess. Everything was close by. The room was extremely well-appointed. My favorite furnishings were the umbrellas by the front door and the abundance of books and magazines for the guests. I look forward to another stay at this marvelous Inn.

Room Tip: The penthouse was beautifully furnished and had a gorgeous view.

As you walk up the sidewalk you are engulfed by beds of beautiful annual and perennial flowers. As they sway with the ocean breeze they beckon you to come in. Once inside, one is welcomed by a personable and charming innkeeper named Stephanie. The inn provides a quaint and beautiful view of the quintessential Maine Harbor. One can walk everywhere in Boothbay Harbor from the inn so it gives one a chance to soak in the beautiful town and to unwind. I especially like the ice tea and cookies that are offered when you return in the afternoon or evening.

We have been coming to Booth Bay Harbor for over five years and nothing beats staying at the Harbour Towne Inn! The breakfast is unbelievably scrumptious and can easily hold you until dinner time. There is always a choice of at least three breakfast entree's in addition to some other surprises (e.g., pastires, scones, homemade granola, yogurt, fruit, or toast). Stefanie is a world class inn keeper and makes you feel so at home. When we return to Booth Bay Harbor, we feel like we're coming to stay with a good friend who goes out of her way to make us feel at home. Stefanie is truly the quintessential inn keeper and can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable including the delicious cookies waiting for us in the afternoon. In addition to the inn being so comfortable, it's in a great location and has pretty views of the harbor. We've stayed in many B&B's in the northeast and this rates at the top. We can't imagine staying anywhere else and we always look forward to going back!!

From the lovely front gardens to the scrumptious breakfast prepared to guests' liking, this little B&B is a gem. You can't beat the location and views and the charming hospitality shown by Stefanie, the Innkeeper. A fantastic value for the Maine coast. Highly recommended!

We visited the in for a long weekend stay the weather was great and the Inn equaled that so who could ask for anything more. Interesting dinning room area with lots of nick nacks to look over while enjoying a superb homemade breakfast. An extra plus was that the breakfast menu changed each day so one really never knew what to expect except we both were sure it would be most enjoyable.
Stephanie the owner was just great not just she was great very warm and friendly. Unfortunatel did not have the opportunity to meet her daughter Ashley who was warm and gracious while booking our reservation but them everyone does need some time off. Doris filled in on Monday morning she was equally hospitable and friend
Also, want to add out room (#8) was cozy, nice and very clean.
We were extremly pleased and do plan to stay there when we visit again sooner rather than later.

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.
