This B&B was wonderful. The room was overlooking the harbor with french doors and lots of windows to take in the gorgeous views. Walking distance to everything in town. This was our first time visiting...will definitely be back! Loved it!!

We stayed for two weekend nights and very much enjoyed our stay. I thought the price was quite high, but I personally didn't shop around to see how it compares to others in the area so maybe it was reasonable. It wasn't out of line with other waterfront B&B's we had checked all along the Maine coast. The innkeeper was... More

My friend and I stayed in the 2 room suite for two nights in late July. The room was awesome with big windows and french door overlooking the water. The larger room had a sitting area and easy access to the porch with pretty wicker chairs. Easy walk to the downtown area. I loved that this suite was bright airy... More

To help you better understand my reviews, my wife and I are independent travelers in our upper-60s. While we definitely like a bit of luxury and enjoy good food, we usually find five-star hotels and Michelin starred restaurants too pretentious. We really liked this B&B -- we often don't like B&Bs, as we often find them to froo-froo, with too... More

We stayed for 6 nights. Comfortable, quiet, friendly. The location was perfect. We could easily walk to all of the town spots, yet were a couple of blocks away from the crowds. The service was great, the rooms spacious & comfy. The innkeepers were not serving hot breakfasts, yet had coffee, tea, & a continental setup daily. Tea & cookies... More

We just arrived home from our four night stay, and already wish we could go back! We were met by a friendly couple Wednesday, and though we were early they had said we could park there. The room was comfy, blending modern and collectible. The view of the harbor was beautiful, and the gardens are carefully tended. A wonderful breeze... More

Our stay at the Blue Heron Seaside Inn was better than we expected. We’ve been planning this vacation for over a year, and as we sat on our balcony the first evening looking at the gorgeous view and enjoying the beautiful weather, we said, “we must be dreaming.” The innkeepers, Phil and Laura, treated us like family rather than guests....

Owners, Laura and Phil, are knowledgeable and congenial. Blue Heron Inn is beautifully decorated and rooms are spacious. Beautiful views of the harbor. Located in walking distance to shops and restaurants in Boothbay. Short distance from recreational areas and sightseeing. We highly recommend the Blue Heron Seaside Inn!
