We stayed here two nights in early October. The guys who are in charge of the hotel (Brian and Ed) seem like real professionals who understand the hospitality business and the needs of the traveler. Our room was absolutely spotless. The overlook to the harbor from our room made each morning memorable----especially if you can be up at sunrise. My...

For over 30 years I have longed for a Maine Coast vacation at a picture perfect hilltop inn. Waking to the crisp fall air and perfect cup of coffee, while overlooking the scenic harbor. That is exactly what my wonderful husband, Ed, Brian, and the great guys at Topside Inn provided. Our stay at Topside far exceeded any of our...

My husband & I stayed in Room 8, loved the decor & having the bottom level all to ourselves. The fridge and microwave was an added bonus. Breakfasts were wonderful, the homemade granola was awesome! Topside is very crisp & clean, peaceful setting with lovely views. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the Boothbay region.

We stayed several days at topside on our way to Nova Scotia and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The rooms are comfortable and very clean with everything in working order, fans, hair dryer etc. The extra bonus is the view! Even on a cloudy, rainy day Boothbay Harbor does not disappoint. It still beautiful! Breakfast changes everyday, and there is...

We enjoyed a last minute overnight stay at the Topside Inn and couldn't believe our luck. We stumbled onto a real gem! These guys do it right on every front. The common area facilities are gorgeous. The room (#4) was spectacular. The views from every window terrific. The bed more comfortable than home. The proprietors and staff are warm, friendly...

A trip to Maine and Boothbay is always a treat. If that trip includes a stay at Topside you are twice blessed. Whether you are in the main house or one of the two other buildings you will love it. There has been a major renovation since our last visit that added a new reception area and enlarged the breakfast...

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Topside. #14Windward has wonderful views of the bay and is decorated nicely. The room was spotless and had just enough room for both of us to relax. The walls are a little thin but neighboring guests were respectful and quiet most of the time. Brian and Ed think of everything -...

Comfortable accommodations with great care taken by the innkeepers to provide fine breakfast, many thoughtful amenities. Five minute walk to town. Stay in the main house if available. This review requires 200 characters, but I am a person of view words and don't see any value in being verbose.

This was my 4th stay at the Topside Inn and was as pleased with everything as in the past - Brian's welcome, the room, view, atmosphere and breakfast. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Boothbay Harbor!
