“An Unbeatable B&B Experience”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

I recently brought my mom to Boothbay Harbor as a last-minute birthday getaway and felt so fortunate that The Harbor House Inn had a room for us! The Inn is perfect just the way it is, but hosts Tom and Monica are constantly doing upgrades and changes to keep things fresh. We stayed in the exact same room I stayed in last summer during a getaway with my boyfriend, and they had redone the room! I've been going at least every other year since the Inn opened 10+ years ago and continue to be amazed by the work Tom and Monica put into every detail, from the room decor to the beautiful breakfast spread. They are truly knowledgeable about the area as well and are always happy to recommend places for dining or recreation. Thank you Tom and Monica for 10+ years of wonderful work!

We stayed in the large room #5 on the 3rd floor. The room has absolutely fantastic views from five windows facing three different directions. The price for a room this size and comfort level is excellent value. The bed was perfectly comfortable. Tom and Monica were very helpful directing us to the best things to see, and our breakfast and other available snacks and treats were top notch. There is much to do and see (and eat!) in the Boothbay harbor area, but of the three days we stayed, the best was the one that we just stayed at the Harbor House Inn and relaxed in our room and on the very large porch. We were a little apprehensive about the 3rd floor room and the number of stairs, but the two seemingly short flights were definitely was not an issue for us, either during the stay or when we hauled our bags up and down. Highly recommended. If/when we return, HHI will definitely be our first choice B&B.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Harbor House Inn. Boothbay is a such a quaint town, and we were within walking distance to most things that we wanted to do. Would love to go back and would highly recommend the Harbor House Inn. Loved sitting on the deck for breakfast and afternoon coffee looking out over the bay.

Our annual trip to Boothbay Harbor for some relaxation and great food is always made extra special when staying at Harbor House. Tom and Monica are the perfect hosts and have taken the time to make each room in the inn comfortable and inviting. Breakfast on the porch overlooking the bay or chatting with your hosts in the common room is a great way to start your day. We have stayed several places in Boothbay including Spruce Point, Newagen Inn and Harbour Towne Inn---none are as nice as Harbor House. It's like going home! Always inviting, close to everything and affordable! Enjoy your stay!

My husband and I stayed here for one night. It was PERFECT. Such a cosy and warm room. The owners were MORE than accomidating, sweet and friendly. They made us feel more than welcome while still maintaining a very private experience. It was completely relaxing, the porch is wonderful with great views of the water. Breakfast was fresh, homemade and satisfying. The Inn was full but so completely quiet and perfect for sleeping. There was no air conditioner, however even in the dead heat of August it cooled down at night. Also with the ceiling fan and being at the top of the hill, it was very comfortable to sleep in. GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!!

My spouse and I had a very peaceful time here. The room overlooked the harbor, and we had perfect weather.

The breakfast was delicious, and the proprietors were friendly and not at all intrusive. We would definitely stay here again.

The only thing was not all rooms have air conditioning. This was not really a problem for us, as the weather was very nice, but being on the third floor, I could see where this would be a problem in the heat.
