Great stay at this up-market B&B, with a wonderful location offering amazing views over Boothbay Harbour. Brian and Ed are extremely professional hosts who preside over exceptional and well managed accommodations.

My husband and I stayed at Topside for the first time this past weekend and we truly felt relaxed! Brian and Ed have a wonderful place. If you need a place to go and unwind this is it!! Looked forward to breakfast every morning and was never disappointed, just delicious. I am sure we will be visiting Topside again.

We stayed in the main house (Room 1) for two nights. It was pretty noisy during the day and conversations could be heard clearly even with the door and windows shut but guests were considerate at night and we weren't bothered by noise while sleeping. Brian was a very nice and professional host. We didn't meet Ed but he is...

We were here the same time and never experienced "grumpy"..... On the contrary Brian was very helpful and breakfast was wonderful. Home made granola, French toast one morning then scrambled eggs to die for! Read the other reviews about location and how easy to get around. A great B&B!!

Spectacular view of the harbor, island right in the room. I think we picked one of the best rooms in the property. The room was very clean and tastefully decorated.

The Topside Inn is as close to perfect as you can get in a B&B. The home is beautiful and the location couldn't have been better for harbor views and an easy walk into town. The decor is more sophisticated than other B&B's that I've stayed at and it was lovely and warm. There were books and magazines everywhere you...

We arrived after a long drive late in the evening at "Topside Inn". Brian and Ed had us, as previously agreed upon, leave a message, we easily found our room No. 20 in the "Leeward House".
