We visit here every year. Kim,the owner, is a great cook, hard worker, and very friendly. It has nice, clean, rooms, and we like the Captain's quarters! You are up high and can see the bay. If you want a nice, clean place that is friendly and not overpriced, then this is for you.

This was our 3rd time staying here. It is so convenient to everything! The rooms are charming, clean and there's a big porch to sit and people watch or take in the view of the harbor. Kim makes a delightful and filling breakfast each morning as well. Also, budget friendly. Can't ask for more.

Loved our stay here. It is steps away from the restaurants and shops. You can park your car and walk everywhere. This is an inn that was built in 1888, so don't expect modern conveniences. There is no air conditioning, but the breeze coming in off the bay is wonderful (and we were there on one of the hottest days... More

My first visit to the area and I could not have made a luckier choice for a Band B. The hospitality was excellent and the rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet despite it's in town location. The large wrap around porch was a wonderful place to read and people watch. There are at least 7 restaurants within half a block;... More

I have been going to Boothbay my entire life - I believe my parents even went when they discovered I was going to be born! So decades on, when I set out to find an ideal spot for my husband and I to visit on vacation, I was pretty picky. I knew I wanted to be right in town to... More

We stayed here for one night and we came back for another night after two days, since this B&B and the place where it is located are very beautiful. It is located in downtown Boothbay Harbor close to restaurants and attractions and very close to the boat cruises' decks. This B&B has a big parking and free internet wi-fi connection... More
