Topside Inn, Boothbay Harbor, Maine: Outstanding in every way!

5 on June 21, 2014

As a gentleman from Texas stated to me,"This is the most outstanding B&B I've ever stayed in." Brian and Ed,the gentlemen who own and run the Topside Inn, are genuinely dedicated to providing the best possible experience to their guests, from thoughtful, creative decor, charming, IMMACULATE rooms, and a varied, gourmet daily breakfast. The beautiful inn is in a wonderful location, overlooking the bay. Surrounding the inn are beautiful gardens the owners have created and planted. All the attention to detail and the warmth of the owners, make your stay a memorable one. I know I will return. I've already recommended this inn to friends.

There is NO DOWNSIDE to the TOPSIDE INN in Boothbay Harbor !

We were so pleased with our accommodations, Ed & Brian went out of their way to make our first stay at the Topside Inn memorable. The food was excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer. "GREAT PLACE TO STAY". I especially liked that the shops, restaurants were close by, & the spectacular ocean view from the porch.

It doesnt get better than the TOPSIDE INN!

I have travelled a lot in my life, and can honestly say that the Topside Inn is one of the most peaceful and relaxing places I have been. The setting of the town of Boothbay Harbor is the idyllic setting for those that want that quintessential Maine vacation, and the Topside Inn offers the best stay in town, with the BEST VIEW! Be sure to get a room with a view of the Harbor. I loved walking down to the shops and restaurants, and getting a fresh caught lobster dinner. One important thing to note, is that the owners of this Inn do it right! Breakfast is delicious, everything is cleaned to perfection, and every room is decorated in adorable comfortable coastal decor, similar to how I would want my dream vacation house decorated. Dont miss out by not taking a trip up the coast to the Topside Inn!

Dreams do come true!!

For over 30 years I have longed for a Maine Coast vacation at a picture perfect hilltop inn. Waking to the crisp fall air and perfect cup of coffee, while overlooking the scenic harbor. That is exactly what my wonderful husband, Ed, Brian, and the great guys at Topeside Inn provided. Our stay at Topside far exceeded any of our expectations. Fantastic breakfasts, spectacular views, clean & comfortable rooms and friendly service can't begin to describe our trip of a lifetime! Bootthbay Harbor and Topside Inn....Thank you so much!!

Another fabulous stay at the Topside Inn

Stayed here for our 6th year in a row, this time with our son & daughter-in-law as well, and once again ~ simply fabulous! In every way. Brian & Ed run a perfect Inn and the renovation work and updates this year have enhanced our stay even more.
