“Comfortable Stay”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

The Harbour Towne Inn on the Waterfront is a great place to stay. It is conveniently located in town and within walking distance of everything. The breakfast is amazing, delicious and creative, far above normal B&B fare. Homemade cookies and tea are available in the afternoon for your enjoyment.. Stephanie is a great hostess and friendly. Our room was comfortable and sitting on the porch overlooking the harbor is a great way to relax.

Our first stay in a Bed & Breakfast & we were extremely pleased with our experience. Greeted with warm cookies fresh out of the oven, & available each afternoon. This is such a lovely three story Inn with beautiful gardens & hanging pots of flowers on the balconies. We asked for a first floor room & it was gorgeous with lovely linens, hanging pictures, plenty of lighting options with ornate lamps, beautifully wallpapered walls, wicker furniture, air conditioned & too many special touches to mention. The King sized bed was so comfortable we slept like babies. Stephanie, the Proprietor, prepared a fantastic breakfast buffet each morning & we had a choice of two time slots to pick from. Choices of various homemade quiches, croissants, biscuits, fresh fruit, yogurt, hot fruited coffee cake dishes, orange juice, coffee & tea were available each morning to be enjoyed in the gorgeous dining room, outside balconies or spacious porch where the food was displayed. Everything from the china to the silverware to the decor was lovely. Many restaurants, quaint little gift shops, ice cream shops, etc. were just a short stroll down the street. We enjoyed our two night stay in this lovely & extraordinary Bed & Breakfast & will definitely return in the future !! Hope to visit with you again, Stephanie, on our next trip to Maine -- this was the highlight of our vacation after traveling through seven states to visit Boothbay Harbor !!!

Room Tip: Request first floor room if you have issues with walking or climbing stairs.

The B&B was very close to town. Less than a 5 minute walk, even at a slow stroll. It was nice having a porch to sit out on and see the water. You could also walk down to their dock and sit there as well. The breakfast was excellent. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Room 11 had a great porch.

We loved this place! Amazing Food! They put on quite a breakfast spread. Amazing View from your own deck or patio! Amazing Proprietors! They were lovely and helpful and made us feel so welcome. We want to go back every year :-)

My husband and I are looking forward to planning another stay at the Harbour Towne Inn! Living in Maine, we have taken many day trips to Boothbay Harbor but with the great deal we found on the Harbour Towne Inn, we could not pass up the overnight stay. We were soooo pleased with everything the Inn had to offer . . . the freshly baked cookies upon arrival, the beautiful flowers on each deck, the quaint air conditioned rooms, the dock where you can sit and enjoy the astounding view of the harbor, and finally, the delicious breakfast (we awoke the the smell of the cinnamon buns baking in the morning . . . they were soooo good!). If you are planning to enjoy all the town of Boothbay has to offer, this is the perfect place to stay as it is just a short walk to downtown. We also really enjoyed chatting with Stephanie! Thank you so much for your hospitality! We will be back again!

We're English, and lucky enough to visit many a place abroad. This was fantastic in every way. Everything was top notch - indoors and out. (The gardens themselves are wonderful.)
Superb breakfast & yummy brownies later in the day. They are located so close to restaurants and shops. We cannot wait to visit again.

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending 2 nights in this cozy inn (room 1) last week. The bed was so comfortable and we loved the deck. Stephanie is amazing as is her staff. The breakfast was delicious and a special treat as we typically are not breakfast people. The guests were all polite and friendly. Looking forward to returning soon!
