My wife and I were recently near Boston to visit our daughter and her family. We decided to take a trip to Maine as we have never been there before. We were a bit nervous arranging the vacation, as we would be in Maine after the established tourist season. We ended up staying four nights at Harbor House Inn in... More

My daughter and I spent a lovely 2 nights here on a weekend mid-October. The weather was awful - but Kristie, the Innkeeper, had lots of suggestions as to how we could spend our time and where we could eat lunch or dinner. Speaking of food, the breakfasts were out-of-this-world great - homemade quiches, fresh blueberry tart, banana loaf, lemon... More

We loved our stay here! Beautiful views, great breakfast, and overall cozy feel to this inn. Location is perfect--walking distance to all activities and free parking! Free wifi, free home-made breakfast, and outstanding service from the inn-keeper! What more could you ask for? We plan to be back next summer!

Just as location is key to real estate, so is location of your B&B in a crowded resort town. Park your car and walk everywhere! Great views of the harbor from the wrap around porch! Yummy breakfast served inside or on the porch. Comfortable rooms.

We loved Boothbay Harbor. It was down to earth, quiet and lovely. Harbor House was perfect. Delicious breakfast and so homey. We really felt so comfortable and at peace. The porch is worth the stay alone...add in quiche lorraine and our breezy corner room and you have a dream stay! Kristie recommended a delicious lobster spot too!

Harbor House Inn sits atop a hill and just a short walk down the hill to the center of everything Boothbay Harbor has to offer. What makes it extra special is it's so quiet and peaceful. The views from the wrap around porch are beautiful and the many chairs very comfortable. Loved sitting with a book, a glass of wine... More
