Reviewed 9 October 2013

We spent three nights at the Harbor House Inn and loved every minute. Monica and Tom were perfect hosts. From their honest advice, good and bad, about where to eat, shop and play, to the spotless and comfortable room, the first rate breakfast and the view from their veranda, our stay was delightful. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Lots of steps, so the first floor room has easiest access to the parking area.

My wife and I stayed with Tom and Monica in the Lotsa Room. It was very comfortable and had a great view overlooking the harbor. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. It is two flights of narrow stairs up, so if you have a lot of luggage, that can be a bit of a pain - but Tom helped me up, so it wasn't a problem. Tom and Monica are fantastic hosts. Breakfast every morning was wonderful and hot. Monica also bakes a special treat every afternoon that was fantastic. It is a great location to town. You can't go wrong. We would stay there again.

We - a couple from germany - spent 1 night by Tom & Monica.
We enjoyed it very much. These both are very nice u. warm people. Also their 2 little dogs are friendly and dont bother anybody. Espacially the shortbread in the afternoon and the muffins and also the special frenchtoast for breakfast were outstanding. We were lucky: we could sit outside - enjoy the view and having breakfast in the sun.
If you plan to go to Boothbay Harbor - which is a very lovely city - stay in the Harbor House!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and felt very welcome by the owners, Tom and Monica. When we arrived in he mid afternoon, the smell of baking cookies greeted us. Monica showed us to "That Room" on the second floor. The veiw was good, overlooking the harbor; the bed was very comfortable, the room had nice antique furniture, and there was an in-room sink. The bathroom with tub, shower, and sink was next door, and was private just for us. It had old fixtures, but was clean, well-functioning, and had all the amenities of a B&B: fluffy towels, nice shampoo, wicker storage bins. Breakfasts were fantastic, with homemade baked goods, special dishes like baked oatmeal, quiche, French toast, fruit bowl, cold cereal, various coffees and teas. During the breakfast, Tom and Monica would mix it with the guests and took a genuine interest in our background and plans. We felt like we were in the home of friends. You also got good vibs from other guests who were return visitors. We would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to anyone who wanted to experience a true "down east" experience.

This is an excellent choice for a B&B in Boothbay. My wife and I stayed two nights in Room 7, "Other Room". The location of the inn is excellent. Just a few minutes walk and you are in town. The innkeepers, Tom and Monica, were superb. Very friendly, helpful and a delight to talk to. Room was very clean and quiet. The inn is beautiful and well maintained. Can definitely recommend without hesitation and we would stay here if ever in Boothbay region again. An excellent experience!

We loved our stay in mid-week September at this inn. Nice view of the harbor, great hot breakfast. A small & cozy place. Our room was comfortble; it had the bathroom outside in the hall, but only as few steps away. We had the biggest bathroom, with claw-foot tub & shower, and this feature made up for its location. We had sufficient privacy, and we would opt for this room again. Inn was a short walk to downtown Boothbay Harbor. Innkeepers very warm & informative.

Room Tip: As noted above, the large room with separate bsathroom is excellent.
