My husband and I spent a relaxing week at this beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfortable B&B. The view of the harbor was excellent from our porch chairs, and we had plenty of space to unpack all of our things and make ourselves at home. Laura and Phil Chapman are warm, friendly, and engaging hosts who sent us on our...

Just back from 3 nights at The Blue Heron. Great place to stay! Laura and Phil are great innkeepers. The Inn is so clean, so spacious, so bright, so nice! I won't repeat what the other posters stated. It's all true! Stay here and you won't be disappointed.

Before staying in Boothbay Harbour I researched several hotels/bed and breakfasts before eventually booking the Blue Heron because of its very positive reviews, position on the waterfront and the attractiveness of the Inn. Being cynical I couldn't imagine that such excellent reviews were true. BUT was I wrong, everything said was absolutely correct and we had a very good three...

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Blue Heron Seaside Inn at Boothbay Harbor in July 2007. It was wonderful! Our room was spacious, private and very clean. We enjoyed having the free internet connection. I had done a lot of research on the internet about Boothbay before picking the Blue Heron and I am so glad we...

In summary - we recommend it. Go there. It's a fabulous seaside inn with a view that a website can’t give a real sense of. They have there own little stretch of harbor side where you can sunbath, take their complimentary kayaks or just watch the tide come in. The location was also perfect, a 2 min walk from the...

We stayed in room #2, the Seabreeze, because on the website it appeared the least 'fru fru' of the rooms. The room was very clean and comfortable, with amenities like cable TV (which worked), jacuzzi tub, microwave, etc. The drawback to this room (and room #1) are that they are on the main floor of the inn and next to...
