Great bed and breakfast in boothbay. My fiancee and I were in town scouting locations for our friends and family to stay when we marry next labor day. Thistle Inn was not only a quality inn with up to date amenities, it was conveniently located in the heart of town. Now, you do NOT get a view of the harbor from here, but it's well worth it. The inn keeper was great. She was very attentive, but gave us our space at the same time. The room was nice, clean and classy. I've stayed at a lot of 4 and 5 star hotels and this place adds the same kind of quality in furnishing and comfort. Of course, its not the Four Seasons, but it is a nice place and I can only speak for the room in which we stayed. We stayed in the American Eagle room. Great sleigh bed, very nice leather club chair and a small desk. They could update the tv to a flat screen and I would've liked a nightstand, other than that, it was great.
The breakfast was wonderful. Afterwards, the inn keeper showed us around the restaurant which had a very cool feel and a nice, upscale wine list (i love wine).
One downside...there was no real common area where you could unwind in front of a fire with a glass of wine or coffee.
All in all, a great stay, highly recommend.
