I have visited the Harbor House over many years now, and am in love with the inn, the hosts (and their four-legged greeters) and the location. Tom and Monica are founts of knowledge about the area and goings-on, but once you've sat on their fabulous wrap-around porch overlooking the harbor with a cup of coffee, some hot muffins or baked...

We stayed at Harbor House for two nights. Tom and Monica are great hosts, very friendly and helpful , recommending some great places to visit during our stay. Our room was clean, beautifully decorated and the breakfast was more than we expected, very delicious. Would love to go back again!

We stayed at the Harbor House Inn for two nights and enjoyed the inn and the location. We tried in the "Other Room #7" - a good sized room with a wonderful cross breeze and a great deck out back. Tom and Monica were very accommodating innkeepers - they provided us with plenty of information on things to do in... More

Our hosts made us feel comfortable as soon as we arrived. The view was great and the location made the downtown walkable. No need to pay for parking in town. Restaurants and shops within blocks of this little gem.

We are not rating the inn as high as others perhaps because we rented the lower priced rooms. We were in the" other " and" not so much" room. Both were adequate for a one night stay. Just not stellar. Both were carpeted. Hardwood floors would be a worthwhile upgrade. Other more expensive rooms in the inn do have hardwood... More

Boothbay Harbor was a last minute addition to our itinerary, but I'm so glad we went. The town is a little touristy but still a great place place for an overnight stop. Harbor House Inn was perfect. It is within walking distance to downtown which is very important because parking is at a premium. The house is beautiful! We especially... More

Despite the high temperatures up in Maine (which is really unusual) -- the ceiling fans and great location up on the hill above the harbor really made this a fantastic vacation. Being close to town but not below in the harbor was perfect! Monica, Tom and family were wonderful hosts. We will stay here again when we come back to... More

We booked the Harbor House because of the pet-friendly room. All three of us were very pleasantly surprised by our first B&B experience. Tom and Monica are super hosts. Our every need was met or exceeded. The breakfasts were feasts for the eyes and the tummies. Whenever we go back to enjoy our favorite city of Boston, we will be... More

the owners were very nice.. their breakfast was delicious.. we enjoyed the view from our room of the ocean/bay... we would highly recommend Harbor House for those who like something different, for those who are discerning a bit.. for kind people! We will be back.
