Can't say enough good things about this inn. Stop looking for any place else to stay in Boothbay Harbor and give Topside a call right now‼️ our room on the first floor was huge, king size bed, comfortable lounging chairs, small fridge, and everything immaculate. Did I mention the view yet? Beautiful lawn sloping toward the bay. The breakfast had...

Thank you for such a great endorsement... we agree with you. We may get a liquor license next summer and start serving additional items to guests in the evening, but guests will be welcome to bring their own beverages regardless. Thank you again!

We loved our stay at the Topside Inn in Boothbay Harbor. Lovely room with incredible views, friendly, helpful staff and gorgeous porch and grounds. The breakfast was delicious and would definitely stay there again, the sooner the better!

The Topside Inn is a luxurious bed and breakfast in the charming town of Boothbay Harbor. The room we stayed in (room 4) is beautifully decorated, with and enormous and very comfortable bed, four big windows letting in tons of light, and stunning views across the garden and over the bay. The bathroom was very large and well equipped, with...

Our sixth visit to Topside found that the ownership had changed, but the Inn, management, food and service was as great as the previous five times we stayed. We look forward to our trip to Boothbay Harbor every year, and Topside is one of the reasons.

Stayed 3 nights in early Sept. and what a way to finish off a great summer. How relaxing to sit in an Andirondack Chair at the highest point in Boothbay Harbor feeling ocean cooled breezes and watching sailboats navigate around beautiful pinetree islands. Not to mention the scrumptious breakfast we enjoyed sitting on a beautiful wrap around porch. The staff...

Our first trip to Boothbay Harbor and we couldn't have stayed in a more perfect place!

In-room refrigerators. Wagons...

I recently stayed here for a weekend in August. From the moment we arrived to even after returning home, the staff was friendly, informative and incredibly helpful.

Brian (and behind the scenes-Ed) were delightful hosts and served fabulous breakfasts. A great little room with our own front and back porch and AC. Views of the harbor. A short walk down the hill to sweet little Boothbay Harbor. Really - a great place. Thank you Brian and Ed. - Bridget & Randy from Seattle

Thank you Bridget and Randy for your great review. We added A/C to 9 of our guestrooms this past year, with the cool ocean breezes in the evening it is not often necessary but nice to have the option. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your next visit.
