My mother and sisters did a New England coast trip and the Browns Wharf was our first stop. None of the other small towns or local hotels came close to the warmth of this place. We traveled in August and the grounds were beautiful groomed. The hanging baskets made it seem like the porch of an old friend. The rooms... More

Coffee and a muffin in the morning and cocktails in the evening. On the balcony. Overlooking the ocean. Magic. From the reception/registration desk to the dining room to the clean... More

This place was awesome! Clean accommodating and right on the water. They have a great restaurant on site. Also have a trolley that takes you into town and very friendly atmosphere. We loved our stay here. We will be back next year!

This was our first trip to Maine and we actually stayed there twice in the same week. We loved the area around Boothbay and the foot bridge across the bay made it an easy walk from Brown's Wharf to all the shops, restaurants, and lobster wharfs. The restaurant was very good for both breakfast and dinner and has both inside... More

This is my favorite hotel / restaurant in Booth Bay Harbor, Maine. We discovered this place during our last trip to Maine 4 years ago and had it on our "must go back" list for this trip to Maine. The place has been owned by the same family (the Browns) since sometime in the late 1940's or early 1950's. The... More

We were very happy with the room we stayed in. It had a beautiful view of the harbor and a nice balcony where we could sit and enjoy the view with a drink. It was very comfortable and clean. You won't be disappointed.
