We were there on 8/24/14 for three nights. There are new owners but it seems to have been a seamless transition. The rooms and grounds are well kept. The staff and Innkeepers are very freindly and helpful. The location is perfect, on a hill overlooking the harbor. Have stayed there a number of times and I am sure we will...

This is a very welcomed review. We took ownership of Topside Inn on August 22nd, so to get such a nice review 2 days in is great. We have been friends with the previous owners for 11 years and have watched them transform Topside into the impressive property it is today. Their service and attention to detail has been second...

We stayed at the Topside Inn while in booth bay for a wedding. Everything was wonderful from start to finish! We stayed in the main house and had access to the front porch and the rocking chairs out front. Anyone can use them though! Our room was large and well appointed. The king sized bed was very comfortable. While our...

Thank you for the nice review and good advice on the rooms. A few rooms have very large bathrooms, they were formerly bedrooms when the house was build in 1840. The room with the largest bathroom is #4 (tub/shower combination). Room #3 across the hall does not have a tub but it has a huge walk-in open shower. Hope you...

The Topside Inn was wonderful. It was our first time in Boothbay Harbor and we could not have been more pleased. From the minute we pulled in to the parking lot every interaction and experience was a delight. I am an extremely picky traveler and usually spend a great deal of time researching locations before arrival. My husband chose this...

We are happy we were part of your anniversary celebration and that you enjoyed your stay. I really like room #23 for all the reasons you mentioned. This winter we have plans to vault the ceiling in the bedroom area and install a ceiling fan, adding even more light and character to the room. We hope you can return and...

My husband and I stayed just one night but we wish we could have stayed longer! This was the nicest B & B we have ever been to. Super clean, comfortable bed, great attention to detail. We enjoyed playing board games and reading in the cozy living room area and the breakfast was wonderful!

My husband and I stayed at the Topside Inn again this year for our annual Boothbay trip. The room was clean and spacious, and we had our own deck (always nice to have a spot for quiet reading). The breakfasts were delicious, and both owners a pleasure to talk to. Plus, the price is right!

We stayed four nights at this inn/b&b with a wonderful view of Boothbay Harbor. The rooms are handsomely decorated with a lot of attention to detail. Bryan and Ed, the innkeepers, are obviously perfectionists and that is a great advantage for the guests. Breakfasts were different every day, served on a charming enclosed porch with great views. The meals were...

Due to an oversight at another inn, we were able to stay at Topside Inn, Boothbay, ME. This property is a hidden gem! The room we stayed in was small, comfortable & IMMACULATE! Because it is up on a hill, your view is much wider of Boothbay. The building we stayed in had decks in front and back of the...

Ed and Brian are so sweet and welcoming. The whole experience was amazing! There is plenty to do in Boothbay- shopping, renting kayaks, eating great seafood! Read my review of it on my blog here: http://www.lovejoanna.com/exploremaine/2014/8/11/anniversary-weekend-topside-inn
