This is even better than it looks on the website. Every member of the staff is helpfull and full of information. The beds are great. The food is delicious. The view of the harbor --(from every room ) will drop your blood pressure 20points.


While here, eat at the Boathouse Bistro (tapas) -everything is better than you have had before. We ate there both nights.

Fisherman's Wharf is great for lunch. Probably great for dinner too.

Take the afternoon sail on the Eastwind.
Boothbay Harbor is wonderful. Quiet, quaint, not too crowded, a wondeful weekend get away.

Our family stayed here the beginning of July and over the 4th of July weekend. We really enjoyed our hotel room, it was very nice, clean and a great view. Wish I could say the same about the restaurant. The staff was so-so. The server was quite rude and very impatient which already started the evening off bad and the food was the topper for a bad dining experience. The food came out cold, some got overcooked and some got cold and undercooked,although i would NOT recommend the restaurant, however the hotel was a pleasant stay, thanks, S.J

The best thing I can say about Brown's Wharf Inn is that I can't wait to come back!! The rooms are good size and clean. The inn is close but not too close to town and everything Boothbay Harbor has to offer. While there we looked at other hotels/inn that I had checked online. We defintely picked the right place to stay. The restaurant was closed while we were there (it was opening in a week) but we were served a substantial Continental Breakfast.
I can't wait to come back, hopefully in June 2013!

Having stayed at Brown's exclusively, and many times since our first visit in 1980 my family and I always look forward to returning. To borrow from GermanGirl41's review (a must read), IT IS DEFINITELY LIKE "COMING HOME." I LOVE Boothbay Harbor!! We always receive a warm welcome from the Brown family and staff alike who have come to know us by name. The waterfront atmosphere of the hotel, and its short distance from the west side of the harbor offers everything you could ask for in a pleasant and relaxing setting. The view from the balcony is wonderful (on both sides). I particularly enjoy watching the lobstermen and boats from the balcony as they both start and end their day. Access to enjoy the west side of the harbor, its town and shops is only a short walk (via the walking bridge) or short drive away.

Brown's is a GREAT location with much to offer, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!

We absolutely loved Brown's Wharf Inn. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. The restaurant on site had delicious, reasonably priced, excellent food. We had a table outside overlooking the boat dock with a view of the sunset. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our room was on the first level with a nice private deck looking across the bay to the town of Boothbay. It was a picture-perfect view. It was about 1/4 mile walk to the bridge to walk over to town. We absolutely loved Boothbay Harbor and Brown's Wharf.

Just returned from a 2 night stay and cannot fault the location or the view, however, one thing that no one else has pointed out is how noisy it is in your room if somebody in the room next to you uses the shower or toilet. The whooshing of the water from either of these is unbearable, it will wake you up as most of the people who stay here seem to get up at 6 am. Also, Boothbay Harbour pretty much closes down the day after Columbus day holiday, the only restaurant we found that was open on Tuesday 12th October was Mc'seagulls which was good but very busy with a 45 minute wait for a table. I will return but earlier in the year next time.
