trip to the east coast, Maine

5 on September 23, 2014

thank you for a wonderful stay. Everything was above our expectations. We especially appreciated the helpful tips about the area.You were knowledgeable and honest.

Great location, not so great value

4.0 on August 26, 2014

This B&B was very clean, excellent location, within walking distance to downtown shops and dining. The breakfasts were also very good. The only problem was that I am not used to paying over $2.00 per sq. ft. for a room. The shower room was laughable. The shower was 2.5 foot by 2,5 foot. The toilet area was the same size. With about the same size area to move in. So other than the room costing too much for what we got, in my opinion, the Harborage Inn was a very nice place.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your recent review and your very kind words regarding the rooms cleanliness, our downtown location and our gourmet, farm-fresh organic buffet breakfasts as we always appreciate our guests feedback. We are sorry that you found issues with your rooms bathroom. Please keep in mind that we do offer 3 different categories of accommodations when selecting a room for your budget & room size preference. You chose one of our 2 economical and typical b&b sized Standard King rooms (with the smaller bathroom explained in description) for guests seeking a lesser expensive option. These 2 rooms are over 250 sq' in size and their price never exceeds this so for accuracy it would be under $1 per sq'. All of our other 9 rooms (Deluxe & Luxury Oceanfront rooms) were recently added and built with all new construction. These 9 rooms have large bathrooms & are very spacious for a typical b&b -- these rooms are sized between 400 to 550 sq feet. We offer many different room sizes & prices at our Inn to accommodate our guest needs. We do recommend to our guests when making a reservation to keep these different room options in mind or call to speak with the Innkeeper to help find a room that will provide them with a most comfortable stay.

All the comforts of home - plus more!

Friendly and hospitable hosts, clean and comfortable rooms, beautiful view, delicious food each morning, great advice on local attractions and restaurants, 10 minute walk to the middle of downtown....need I say more? If you need more coffee in your room, it appears there. If you need more towels, etc, they arrive in your room immediately. We have visited twice and I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Reasonably priced and worth every penny. You won't be disappointed.

Off Season Visit

4.4 on May 16, 2014

The double room suite we had was very nice, comfortable and clean. My daughter and I were extremely happy with the location, and even though the weather didn't cooperate all the time, we did everything we wanted to do and saw everything there we could. The hosts were charming and we would recommend this B&B very highly. Rated the dining low as this was the off season and no breakfast was available at the location, however, the host recommended a bakery 2 doors away which was outstanding for a low priced, but large portions, breakfast.

Great lodging in Boothbay Harbor

Excellent rooms, clean, well appointed. Close to downtown Boothbay Harbor for shopping, dining and boat tours. Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens is nearby and shouldn't be missed. Breakfasts on the porch were fantastic. Ask Emery for the recipes.

Found the place on the internet. It looked like a good place to stay for our visit to Boothbay Harbor and I booked it. The Inn far exceeded our expectations- a delightful place to stay, well-kept, convenient. the staff friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are to die for. It made for a truly memorable visit to Boothbay Harbor. We will return.

Truly Distinctive Breakfasts !!

The Harborage In Boothbay Harbor, Maine, is one of the best B&B/Inns we have stayed in - and definitely has the best breakfast meals. The rooms are lovely, with all amenities provided - and there is room to unpack and settle in. The chairs/tables on the decks facing the harbor are shaded and capture a nice breeze. The dock is new and the dock bench actually has an angled back so you can relax as you watch action in the harbor. The yard/gardens are lovely and well maintained. Owners Troy and Emery are gracious and helpful, and Innkeeper, Ren, is ever-ready to make us comfortable. The Harborage is close enough to town to easily walk for meals, shopping, harbor cruises - but far enough to feel the peace of a little distance. We're going back next month!
