Charming and low key B&B.

3.8 on August 28, 2014

This was a lovely B&B. The decor was very attractive. The inn keepers were very warm and welcoming (new inn keepers Buzz and Mark). The breakfasts were very good. While this is a really charming B&B in a great location, we have become very spoiled by some of the Select Registry B&B's where there are homemade snacks offered throughout the day, along with happy hour wines & cheeses, etc.


Five out of Five

If you want to feel special during a special occasion book your reservation now! Not only is the Inn gorgeous and meticulous, the food worthy of an award medal, but the service and treatment from the innkeepers is unmatched. They go out of their way to make your visit an unforgettable one. On top of it all Boothbay Harbor is an adorable town.


Great place!

4.6 on August 12, 2014

Lovely location with beautiful views and nice gardens. Rooms were super clean and well decorated. Breakfast was delicious. The inn keepers were very nice and helpful - they gave a great restaurant suggestion. Overall experience was just great!


Perfection!

5 on July 21, 2014

I have enjoyed many fine B&B's in the US and abroad and the Topside Inn is at the top of the list! It is a beautiful Inn in a beautiful location and the Innkeepers, Ed and Brian and their staff, made our visit thoroughly enjoyable and memorable. Every inch of this property is gleaming and tended to with loving care. The rooms, grounds and all public areas of the Inn are beautifully decorated and the grounds are well maintained and lovely. The breakfasts and afternoon fresh baked cookies were delicious and beautifully prepared and presented. Coffee, tea and snacks available 24/7 along with anything else you might need in the way of glassware, dishes, wine openers, ice etc. all readily available for guests to use and enjoy. The Innkeepers were very friendly and helpful with local information and suggestions. The Inn is a two minute walk to the Harbor area, but is very private and quiet on a beautiful hilltop. Our stay here was really perfect in every way and we can't wait to visit again next year and bring family and friends along to experience this true New England Gem!!

A beautiful place to stay

4.6 on July 15, 2014

The owners are very hospitable and have baked goods out to enjoy in the afternoon. The rooms and linens are clean. The breakfast is very delicious.


July 2014

5 on July 15, 2014

We were taken by the grounds as we arrived. They are extremely well kept and beautiful. The lobby and interior of the inn has been redone and is welcoming. Our room was in the windward building and was setup really nicely. We had a balcony with water view and everything we could have wanted was right there. Brian and Ed have thought of everything to make your stay exceptional. We stayed 2 nights but wish we had more time. The location is perfect for relaxing or exploring the area on foot. We will definitely be back.


A "Top" choice in Boothbay

5 on July 12, 2014

The staff of the Topside Inn does a wonderful job of making every guest feel welcome and special. The breakfast presentation and menu is a delight. Green eggs and ham on June 21, 2014. Friends and family had gathered at the Topside in anticipation of our daughter's wedding in a neighboring town. The chairs on the front lawn were a focal point of our time together. It's a short walk down the hill to go sightseeing, shopping or out to eat. Be aware that the walk up the hill doesn't feel quite as short. We had a wonderful time in Maine and hope to visit again.


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 !

5 on June 10, 2014

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.
