Amazing place! Beautiful location overlooking the harbor and out toward the ocean. The rooms were bright and comfortably appointed. Cocktail hour was awesome as you could meet and greet the other guests, but the most amazing and surprising part was the gourmet breakfast. Both Mark and Buzz were friendly and gracious hosts as well as great cooks! Would recommend this...

Thank you for the great review, these past few weekends have been amazing. We have really enjoyed spending time with our guests during the cocktail parties before everyone heads out to enjoy the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden's "Gardens Aglow" and dinner at local restaurants. The town is all light up for the Festival of Lights, very impressive. Glad you enjoyed...

We loved our room in the main house. Charming décor, lots of windows, views, huge bath w/glass block shower. Perfect Maine hilltop setting, fabulous breakfasts and great innkeepers who have basically thought of everything.

Topside Inn is at the top of the hill, within walking distance of the village of Boothbay Harbor. It is everything you ever have seen on a post card of the Maine coastal towns. Mark and Buzz are attentive and hospitable innkeepers. Their hard work to make this B & B what it is, is apparent. The main house has...

Thank you, please do visit again and stay as long as you like. We do like to show off the local food available to us, glad you enjoyed the breakfasts. We also appreciate the good information for others to read about the inn and it's location. The privacy offered by room #8 makes it very popular. We are in the...

There are many reasons the Topside is a top-rated bed and breakfast; after staying there, we would give a sixth star if we could. If the Topside billed itself as a four-star dining experience, it wouldn't be an overstatement. Morning offerings are diverse; main dishes are inventive, delicious, perfectly prepared, and beautiful. Everything, and I mean everything, is prepared on...

The owners know what they are doing. The breakfast was perfect and the Inn is nicely decorated and impeccably clean and attractive. Really good sheets, towels, and bathroom products. Garden lovers will be please with the outdoor landscaping.

We only had time to spend one day and night in Maine and my husband's choice to spend it in Booth Bay Harbor and at the Topside Inn was a winner! Every room of the Inn is gorgeous with great views of the bay. Our room even had a cozy window seat looking out to the bay. All of the...

Every visit has been perfection. From the exquisite views and prime location to the top-notch hospitality (seriously, Buzz and Mark have thought of EVERYTHING, and deliver it with beautiful elegance)- the Topside is not to be missed. And, did I mention the breakfasts?!?! World-class.

I investigated almost every lodging option in BBH prior to reserving here. We stayed here for our son's destination wedding, so we wanted a very nice place with options for our friends, good location, excellent amenities, a view, and a gathering place. Bingo! First, just let me say that dealing with Mark and Buzz was wonderful. I was that crazy...

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...
