About

The Welch House Inn offers unsurpassed views of Boothbay Harbor, yet restaurants, shops, and galleries are just steps away. Our comfortable guest rooms all have private baths and king, queen, or double beds, A/C, and VCRs. Delicious homemade breakfasts made from fresh local ingredients are served in our sun-filled breakfast room overlooking the harbor. 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. Make us your choice for vacations, escapes, romantic getaways, honeymoons, weddings, and family reunions.

We arrived for Windjammer days and we're able to enjoy all of the events in town because of the proximity of the Welch House Inn.The breakfasts were superb and service was outstanding.

Our favorite B&B in Boothbay Harbor

5 on May 30, 2014

We just keep going back! The accomodations are superb; the view is one of the best overlooking the harbor; and Susan's home-cooked breakfasts, mouth-watering. (She'll go to great - and successful - lengths to acommodate special dietary needs, as well.) And then in addition to their inn-keeping qualities, Susan and Michael are truly wonderful people: they go the extra distance as a matter of course to ensure their guests experience the too-often overlooked bits that make a visitor's stay special. Thanks. We'll be back.

Signature Dish

Crustless Crabmeat Quiche
One of Susan's most popular creations is the crustless crabmeat quiche, made using locally caught fresh Maine crab. Its sweet taste and delicate texture are front and center, cradled in a soft, eggy/cheesy pillow that miraculously holds together without a crust.
