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.

First Time at the Welch House Inn

5 on October 30, 2013

This was a wonderful experience. It is a beautiful inn and the breakfast was amazing. My husband and I plan on coming back again and again. Peter and Carla Milford, ME


I loved this place

5 on May 11, 2013

We came here for our anniversary and really enjoyed the location. The food was superb and the rooms were wonderful. The people who ran the place did everything to make our stay delightful. But maybe I shouldn't be saying this as others will now come and it will be more difficult to get a room. We will be back.


Dream home away from home

My partner and I just got back from a second stay at the Welch House. Michael and Susan were as friendly and pleasant as the first. They had wonderful advice on shopping and dinning. Once again we are planning our Anniversary weekend there. As always we look forward to the breakfast as well.
