“Harbor House Inn is the best!”
Reviewed 1 September 2007

What a treat to find such a lovely B&B that welcomed our 4-year old and provided such amazing hospitality and guest amenities...and so close to the waterfront! The view is fantastic from the porch, where we ate a tasty breakfast each morning. We stayed in room 7, in the carriage house, which gave us a bit more privacy and our own deck! Tom and Monica are fabulous hosts, and we plan on returning.

My husband and I have stayed at Harbor House Inn twice (2006 and 2007), and we plan to make this our yearly family vacation. The rooms are comfortable and quaint. The breakfasts are so yummy and there is a large variety of items to choose from (muffins, streudal, waffles, hard boiled eggs, bread, etc). There is always an afternoon snack available. There is a wrap around porch where you can drink coffee, talk, and enjoy the view. The inn is a very short minute walk to "town". We really love our stays here and cant wait to return next summer. Tom and Monica are wonderful hosts. This is a perfect spot for a relaxing quiet getaway.

We are tourists from Germany on a three weeks journey through north-east USA.
We happened to find this Inn, which immediately let us forget the rain outdoors. We loved the charme and humor of the hosts, the atmosphere of the house and the wonderful breakfast.
Our English is unsufficient to give a better description, but we underline twice, what the other guests in July 2007 have written.

I've stayed at the Harbor House twice (2003 +2005) and continue to keep in touch with Tom and Monica. It's the essence of a summer home on the Maine coast!

The porch is wide and comfy with plenty of chairs and chaises, the breeze is constant and lovely, the view is wonderful.....you're a two minute walk from all the action along the water. You can park your car and spend the rest of your Boothbay experience on foot.....easily getting anywhere you want to go.

Tom and Monica make you feel like a long-lost relative who's come back to visit. The breakfasts are very good with a huge variety of things to eat. Ditto the afternoon tea and cookies and pre-cocktail snacks. Once you get here you never want to leave. It's Bar Harbor without the crowds and the pretensions!

The Harbor House was truly everything we wanted in a Bed and Breakfast. The innkeepers are not only very friendly but also have stories and knowledge of local sights that made our trip magical. The location is convenient so we could stroll along all the shops and is set apart just enough to have that all-important quiet Maine front porch view from the rocking chairs! They have wireless internet and salty fresh air and baked french toast that is soaked over night! Every detail- down to the lace-trimmed luxurious sheets and the private bath- added up to the perfect stay.

We recently visited this lovely B&B for 2 nights. I've stayed at several B&B's over the years, and this was the best one! Tom and Monica are wonderful hosts, the room was just perfect, and the views from the back porch are simply spectactular. This is a very well-maintained inn that is run very professionally. The breakfast that Tom and Monica made was delicious. They also have snacks, including freshly baked cookies and cakes, for their guests. I highly recommend that you stay here!

As you drive into Boothbay Harbor, you can see the picturesque Harbor House up on the hill overlooking the harbor. It is everything you could hope to find in a charming, New England B&B. Hosts Tom and Monica have created a warm, welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are lovely - each one different and with its own personality. A hearty breakfast is served in a dining area that opens out onto the best porch in Maine! No matter what time of day, it is always cool and breezy on the porch - a perfect place for coffee, reading or a nap. And, it's just a short walk to all the shops, restaurants and boats - so you will never have to move the car! We have stayed at Harbor House several times and plan to go back again (and again!).
