About

The Welch House Inn offers unsurpassed views of Boothbay Harbor, yet restaurants, shops, and galleries are just steps away.

The living room’s stone fireplace provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying a book or meeting with friends. And nothing compares to the 180-degree view of the harbor from our third floor deck.

49th state on our trek

3.4 on August 20, 2014

Great location, excellent full breakfasts! Pleasant owners. Charging our smart phones was difficult, as plugs are few and most were already full. Two apparently connect to the light switch, because they did not recharge the phone & camera overnight!


wonderful view and great service

4.0 on August 15, 2014

Welch House is a great option in Boothbay Harbor. The top of the hill location provides a spectacular view of the harbor and easy walking access to the shops and restaurants of the town. Michael greeted us and gave an excellent recommendation for dinner. We had two rooms, both nicely furnished, with comfortable beds and very clean baths. The public area is very pleasant, with complimentary coffee and tea and wine for purchase. The weather was outstanding during our stay, so we spent much of our time on the outdoor deck, enjoying the bug free evening air. We took advantage of the deck for breakfast too. Everything was delicious and we all agreed that the coffee was the best ever.

Stood at the Welch House Inn for our anniversary and had a really great time. Champagne, chocolate and flowers ordered were waiting in the room. Great harbor view from the room and roof terasse. Awesome breakfast treat and service over all - we'll be back....


Solid B&B

For the views on their upper deck alone this is a good deal. Great views of the harbor and extremely close to the town. Breakfasts are solid and they are able to cater to the requests we had. Room had some interesting quirks to it, but overall it was solid.


They have the recipe!

A dash of finesse, a pinch of casual a sprinkle of silliness, a twist of refinement tablespoons of tasteful, overflowing cups of contentment drams of design, scoops of soothing softness a generous portion of "feel at home" comfort, and a plate full of the most delicious breakfast we've had in a very long time! All carefully stirred with respect and a smile..... Susan and Michael are Master Chefs at creating an environment for you to savor.

Wonderful Stay!

We had a great stay at the Welch House Inn. The views off the back deck were amazing. I liked that they offered a "Romance Package". We opted for that and had a cold bottle of champagne, gourmet chocolates, and fresh flowers waiting for us in the room when we arrived. Great location, able to walk to everything. Highly recommend happy hour at Rocktide and grabbing a sandwich at the Blue Moon Cafe!


Couldn't have been better

We were so glad we chose the Welch House Inn. Everything about our stay was perfect. Upon arriving we were greeted by Michael who gave us some excellent recommendations on places to eat and things to do. Without asking, Michael upgraded my wife and I to a beautiful room (#2) with an ocean view and fireplace. After spending the day walking around town, we grabbed a few cold beverages and made our own "happy hour" on the rooftop deck which has amazing views of the harbor... and we had it all to ourselves! For breakfast the next morning, Susan made some tasty Apple Pfannies (dutch oven pancakes). The service, location (2 min walk to town), and amenities of the Welch House Inn can't be beat. Don't hesitate to book here, you won't regret it.


Great Experience At Welch House Inn

4.8 on July 24, 2014

Upon arrival we were given a map and a lot of great insider information about the area. All their recommendations proved to be great. The room was perfect with spectacular views. Also both balconies at the Inn offered incredible views. The Inn is a 5 minute walk to the great little town. You can grab a whale watching cruise and do many other activities. This Inn is in the perfect location to take advantage of everything in the area. The hot breakfast offerings were delicious and interesting. Also there was an ample bar of homemade granola, cereal, yogurt, fresh cut fruit and a different baked good every day. The coffee is very good as well. I would definitely return to this Inn and to this region.
