These guys have their act together! The inn is beautifully appointed in simple, clean Maine style, spacious and welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble from the luggage cart help on check in to the cookies, snacks, wine glasses, porch blankets etc. We stayed for several night for our wedding and our small group chatted on the porch at twilight looking...

This is a clean, bright, crisp boutique inn with attentive innkeepers and great breakfast. The beauty of being at the top of the hill on the third floor of the building is that room 6 has a great view of the harbor. I booked it for our wedding night, and it was great. As it turns out, the innkeepers needed...

We stayed at the Topside Inn this past week (Aug 2014) and can say that the pictures and reviews are accurate. The rooms are very clean, the staff courteous, and grounds immaculate. It is situated on the top of a hill a couple blocks from the "downtown" area. The hilltop location provides awesome views and nice cooling breezes. The breakfasts...

Where to begin...we gave stayed in other B&Bs in Boothbay Harbor 3 times and enjoyed each visit, however, the Topside Inn "TOPS" them all. From the time we arrived we were amazed by the VIEW, the friendly staff, the accommodations, the location, and the breakfasts were incredible. We loved everything about the Topside Inn and hope to return next season.

We have come here for two years in a row now and are eagerly anticipating booking another trip. Having spent much of my childhood in Boothbay, I know the area and what it takes to truly make the most of this beautiful place. The Inn itself is impeccably furnished with all of the comforts of a beachside home. The grounds...

I usually look primarily at location and reputed cleanliness when I book a B&B. Charm is a bonus, and when it is combined with good food and a great view, the Inn deserves a commendation. Topside Inn hits the top level in all categories. Located just a few uphill blocks from downtown Boothbay Harbor, its hilltop location gives guests spectacular...

By all means choose Topside Inn to be pampered. You'll enjoy bright, clean rooms, spectular views, and a wonderful breakfast. It's an easy walk to town, yet removed enough so it's quiet and restful. The guys are great. You'll hate to leave Boothbay Harbor!

We returned to the Topside Inn for two nights this week. It was again, phenomenal. The hosts are wonderful--very attentive--and think of everything you might need for a memorable stay. The breakfast is outstanding, and I love that the coffee is ready at 7 a.m. with ceramic mugs (not paper) and cream (not powder). So many little things at this...
