From the moment you arrive, Mark and Buzz embrace you with hospitality. Their care and attention to detail was exceptional. Grab a drink, and soak in the beautiful views and sunset from the porch or lawn chairs. The delicious, fresh breakfast (homemade haddock cake eggs benedict ) was the cherry on top. Cannot recommend more!

Thanks for the review, Meg. We truly enjoy creating a perfect environment for families and friends to celebrate happy occasions. The happy couple was back a couple of weeks ago for the weekend and they seem to be doing great. Come back and see us again.

Have been coming to topside since 2011 and somehow Mark and Buzz keep making it better every year. The best place in Boothbay for a summer week, a "home base" for exploring the Maine coast, or for a quick weekend getaway. On top of the excellent rooms and the hospitality, the breakfasts are out of this world. Spectacular isn't praise enough!

You are too kind…but we’ll take it! Last time we saw you we were planning to renovate five rooms over the winter, but the guys finished early, so we added two more. By the time we open (on May 4th) we will have completely renovated seven rooms finishing Windward and continuing with Leeward. We can’t wait for you to see room 8…it is all new from the studs in with new ceilings, floors, walls, lighting, furniture, bathroom, and a surprise soaking tub in the room! Have a wonderful spring and we’ll see you in July.

We stayed in the topside suite, enjoyed using the kitchen and all of the facilities. The bathroom is huge (!) and includes a double vanity, a roomy shower with strong water flow and a beautiful bath.

Breakfast was great, we enjoyed the cinnamon and brown sugar butter - a little bit of that on a piece of bread is absolutely amazing. Together with the great view and atmosphere of Boothbay Harbor we cannot say anything else but to strongly recommend on this place.

Thank you for the nice review, we appreciate you taking the time to post a review in February... the inn is currently closed for the winter so it is nice to know our guests are still thinking about us months after their stay. We reopen on May 4th and we are looking forward to a great season. We plan to make many of our guests favorite breakfast items, including the homemade English Muffin Bread and cinnamon butter. We are also working on a few new featured breakfast entrees.

We had such a great stay we can’t stop talking about it and showing pictures to just about anyone who will listen. Mark and Buzz truly offer an above average level of customer service, personally tailored to their guests. We are still raving about the wonderful breakfasts that were provided, despite working around the limitations of a gluten free diet. We loved the décor and feeling of Room 17 and it’s wonderful porch area. The room was very comfortable and bright, and the bed linens and towels were so soft! We had the most restful sleeps of our vacation there. We enjoyed the many common spaces to sit, relax and enjoy the view and the beautiful gardens, or to stargaze at night. If I could have changed one thing, it would be to have a coffee maker in the room. I appreciated the endless and delicious coffee in the main house, but when I am on vacation, I like to have my coffee while I am getting ready for the day (or in this case on the porch) and it would have been great to have stayed in my pjs instead of having to get dressed to go to the house to get it. We do hope that some day we can plan a return stay at your wonderful bed and breakfast, and totally understand why you have so many repeat guests!

What a nice review, thank you. You touched upon so many amenities and services that are so important to us. First, we are happy to hear you found us, your hosts, to be accessible and caring - we are both. You also mentioned the rooms, we renovated a number of rooms, including room 17, last winter and we were so pleased with how they came out. We have received many compliments on the new floors, built-in furniture, vaulted ceilings, a/c, new bathrooms, etc. We have renovated another 7 rooms this winter, so now almost all of our rooms have been completely renovated. Food is a big part of a stay at Topside - we offer a true farm to table experience, with many items from our own gardens. Thank you again.
