Was just great. Our favorite spot to stay! Clean, organized and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts were beautiful and tasty. The outdoor views are tremendous. Kuddos to the owners and all of the staff. Only suggestion I'd make is putting weather stripping or similar material under the doors for privacy. The front 1st room is a bit cooler and noisy with...

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent 10 day vacation. This is a lovely B&B with great attention to detail. Our room was beautifully decorated as was the rest of the house. Mark & Buzz were the nicest guys not to mention very good in the kitchen- our breakfasts were awesome! We've been a lot of places but...

As part of a 10 day trip to Boston (4 days) and Maine (6 days), our Maine trip involved different lodging and different towns each night! This Inn was a delightful stop on our tour! Some of the things that stand out are:...

We loved our stay and will be back as often as we can. We have been in the main house and this year in Windward annex, and both were...

We had a wonderful week long stay at this top notch B&B. The owners, Buzz and Mark, are warm and knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions or assist with your plans. Most of your needs have already been anticipated from insect repellent and blankets on the front porch to corkscrews and snacks in the common areas. The breakfasts...

Get out of the city to a premier B&B in beautiful Boothbay. Gorgeous view of the harbour from our suite just steps from the gourmet breakfasts every morning. The quaint town was just a short walk down the hill. The staff was always eager to please and the owners are hands on and always available to help plan your days....

We booked only a few weeks before our stay. We had to have two different rooms because of them almost being sold out. It was fine as we spent 1 night in room 20 and 2 nights in room 9. Both rooms were very nice, but we had a better view in room 9. The morning breakfasts were terrific with...
