Great young staff and couple that squired this fine BB recently. We were told by a local reporter that the food was outstanding and we had dinner there on our stay. The reporter was spot on, the food and service was outstanding and the restaurant and pub downstairs had a great cozy feel. Close to town and easy walk. Great place to stay in Booth bay

Our room was large and very clean. The daily breakfast offered was creative and filling. All the guests were so friendly at breakfast. The onsite restaurant and bar are GREAT! Food is priced appropriate and delicious! The linens and the towels provided are high quality which is always a plus! I would recommend this Inn to friends and family

Need designated parking for guests. Some problems with water shutting off during showers, mostly in the afternoon.

We had a wonderful time in Boothbay Harbor. The Lights-A-Glow at the Botanical Gardens was WONDERFUL. Thank you again for a lovely room and welcoming hosts. We did not dine there so I could not rate that.
