Spectacular water view, easy walk to town, delicious breakfast, and topnotch service made this the best place we have ever stayed at in Maine. Our friends are amazed at the pictures of the bay and ocean from the Topside's back lawn. Also our room had been in a Decor magazine photo shoot the day we arrived in it was like stepping into a program on HGTV. Finally but not lastly, Mark, Buzz and Rebecca make every guest feel very welcome and are a valuable resource in make your stay enjoyable.

My husband and I spent the weekend in Boothbay Harbor and stayed at Topside Inn! The service was remarkable from the time we arrived to the moment we left. The room was immaculate and the view was absolutely breathtaking. It was a romantic experience which was perfect for our 8th wedding anniversary. The breakfast... oh my gosh... was over the top delicious. I'm so glad my friend recommended Topside Inn. We have already booked our next stay (for 5 nights instead of 1) for June 2022. The location is perfect too... it's within walking distance to shopping and dining! We fell in love with Boothbay Harbor and Topside Inn was a big reason! Thank you Buzz, Mark and Rebekah for the excellent service! We look forward to seeing you next year. <3

Top view, top food, top rooms and top service at Topside Inn. There was nothing more that one could ask for given the quality of this Inn. The location was perfect, the breakfast was delicious and the accommodations extraordinary. Buzz, Mark, Rebecca and the staff do a fantastic job making sure everyone feels comfortable and taken care of. We planned this trip to celebrate our 41st anniversary and we are glad we did .

We are located at the highest point in Boothbay Harbor so Topside is a very fitting name - thank you for extending that to include our food, rooms and service as well - much appreciated.
