We stayed in the downstairs room in the main house. Noise was not a problem and it was nice not to have stairs to deal with. Breakfasts are absolutely fabulous. You will love the homemade granola and the pumpkin waffles with caramel syrup.

The Topside Inn was a delightful retreat for our first trip to Maine. Our room was cozy and comfortable although the bathroom was short on counter space and the closet was teeny-tiny. We were provided with luggage racks and a mini-fridge. The outside seating area provided a good view of the bay. Breakfasts at Topside Inn are out of this...

I haven't had a real vacation for nearly ten years, so my girlfriend and I were really excited about visiting Boothbay. What we really wanted was to be able to sit in our room, share a bottle of wine, and just relax and look at the boats on the bay. When I made the reservation, the guy I talked to...

We never like to hear that a guest was disappointed with a stay at our inn, and our goal is to exceed expectations. Whether over the phone or on our website, we do our best to set the right expectation with regard to views and other aspects of our property - there is no incentive for us to offer inaccurate...

Whilst Boothbay Harbor was disappointing - coach-loads of tourists and shops to meet their needs - the Topside Inn was anything but. It was peaceful, relaxing and of the highest quality. Loved the welcome, the room, the views, the breakfast and the location. Classily romantic. Can't say much more. It really is a no-brainer if you are looking for first-class...

We loved Topside Inn. The room was pleasant and clean (although not large) and tastefully appointed. Inviting comfortable bed and wonderful pillows and comforter helped for good rest. The best part was the innkeepers and the wonderful creative breakfasts. We were there three mornings and had a wonderful treat each time. Entrees were on top of the regular fruit, homemade...

We really enjoyed our stay at Topside. The main house has a small kitchen, drinks available, nice fireplace and sitting area, and a big porch with rocking chairs. There are 3 buildings with rooms in addition to the main house. We stayed in room 9, which we loved. Nautical themed, king bed, corner unit with nice outside porch and a...

Buzz & Mark operate the best B&B we've ever experienced which is why we return year after year. Their staff is very accommodating, the Inn is spotless, the breakfasts are the ultimate dinning experience. See the pictures for examples. It tastes better than it looks. Don't miss an opportunity to visit & relax. Look forward to a return in 2017.

Mark and Buzz treat you like a good friend during your stay at Boothbay Harbor. We love Boothbay and will always stay at Topside Inn.

Warm and friendly B&B with stylish and comfortable rooms. They're not the biggest rooms I've come across but the views from the private outdoor seating with each room and wonderful breakfast absolutely make up for it - the home made granola and carrot cake pancakes were amazing!

Wonderful views overlooking the harbor from almost every corner of the property. We so enjoyed the back porch area of our room and would steal a great view out now & then!! The rooms are light, comfortable and acknowledged their coastal surrounds. Our bathroom was tight (we're tall), but up-to-date and we appreciated having a window & fresh air. Creative...
