We stayed in Bliss on out honeymoon through Maine and this was by far our favorite B & B! We were greeted by Devon upon arrival and things only got better! Our room was gorgeous, as was the view! It truly was named properly. The best part, actually was the breakfast every morning! I only wish we could have spent more time here!

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn on a recent weekend trip to the Coastal Gardens. Donna and Devon create a space that's extraordinarily welcoming and peaceful. The location is ideal, the views spectacular, the rooms delightful, the porch rockers inviting, and the food bountiful and delicious. What makes it special, though, is the unobtrusive and careful attentiveness to the needs of each guest. One small example: I went to the kitchen for ice to put on my sore knee, and Devon gave me a cold compress reserved for guests from the freezer. The intention seems to be to make a place where body and soul can rest and be restored, and this is carried out with a sure but light touch. Serenity and laughter come easily here. We hope to visit again - one of the best B&B's we've stayed at.

Just returned from our 3rd visit to the Atlantic Ark Inn. We enjoy sitting on the front porch rockers for early morning coffee, and in the late afternoon to enjoy cheese and crackers while watching the world go by. We always stay in the cottage at the back amid the beautiful plantings and sit on the private deck or in the comfortable rockers in the room. There is always someplace comfortable to relax and read. You will start the day with excellent coffee and filling breakfasts (thanks, Devon). The room is always clean (thanks, Natalee) with fresh flowers - a nice touch. Owner Donna is a pleasure to work with. We hope to be back soon.

We spent three wonderful days over the Memorial Day weekend. We were attending a wedding in Boothbay Harbor. The experience was one of the best we have had at a B&B. From the beautiful house to the lavish breakfasts I cannot say enough. Donna opened the Inn a day early so we could arrive in time for the wedding . The attention was wonderful, from cheese & crackers in the afternoon to fresh baked cookies at night to making an early breakfast on the day we left in order to accommodate our travel plans. Devon, the Innkeeper is a fabulous cook and the breakfasts were beautiful presentations as well as wonderful tasting.

Had a lovely time at the Atlantic Ark Inn during a romantic fall foliage stay with my boyfriend. Wonderful breakfast was had with other visiting guests after our nights in the quaint little cottage nestled in the back of the property. Donna, Devon, and Michelle were all very hospitable during our stay and we were welcomed home from our adventures with a fruit/cheese plate, warm chocolate chip cookies, and hot tea. Very close walk to town over the footbridge, which made it easy for shopping adventures and dinner at some yummy restaurants. Had a view of the harbor from our front porch of the cottage. There is a duck pond behind the cottage with a very chatty duck during the night, but we both found the situation to be very comical. I would recommend this inn to friends and family in the future.

My husband has such a wonderful experience at the Inn. From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. Devon greeted us and gave us everything we'd need to navigate the town. Short walk to town where there are many restaurants to choose from and a variety of shops. After a day out exploring it was wonderful to come back to cheese and crackers in the afternoon and fresh baked cookies in the evening. Now to the breakfast, amazing! Starting with a fresh fruit plate to frittata's with fresh baked corn bread and banana bread. Devon, your an amazing chef!!
The inn has a wonderful wrap around porch (with rocking chairs) and wonderful views of the harbor. Can't wait to return!!

Wonderful hospitality. Superb vegetarian breakfast with attractive fruit plate. Easy walking distance to the downtown area. Very pleasant surroundings for a group of friends to meet, relax and visit. The rooms were very clean. The third floor rooms might be too much climbing for some folks.
