Donna welcomed my family to her beautiful home in Boothbay Harbor. The location is perfect for exploring the mid-coast area of Maine. The breakfasts were delicious and filling and we were welcome to sit and relax over coffee and tea as long as we wanted to sit and visit. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds were some of the cosiest my family has ever nested in. The deck provided a beautiful and relaxing place to sit at the end of our busy days. In addition, Donna was very accomodating with a request which helped us get on the road in a timely manner as planned. I would definitely recommend Atlantic Arc Inn and I hope to return there again myself!

We've stayed in many B & B's. Atlantic Inn had it all. Great breakfast, immaculately maintained, fantastic location. Warm and friendly atmosphere in a beautiful setting.

Our most personal stay at a hotel during our trip was at the Atlantic Ark Inn. We were welcomed as if family members. The Inn was well maintained and its interior had a romantic touch and is ideal for couples. We had the room under the roof, which was very spacious, bright and confortable. Every morning at 9 breakfast was served to all guests. I particularly enjoyed sitting together with other travellers, talking about current issues and sharing travelling information. Breakfast was very exquisit: first some fruit, then homemade french toast or pie. Nearby were plenty restaurants to choose from and whale watching tours were offered. We can recommend a trip to Boothbay Harbor and a stay at the Atlantic Ark Inn.

I just came back from a 2 day stay in early September. in Boothbay Harbor. The Inn was a highlight. Donna, the owner/innkeeper, really creates a wonderful environment. Both she and her staff keep the place immaculate, not in a sterile way, but in a fresh and welcoming way.

Let me start with a brief description. There is a large porch looking across the street at the harbor, with rockers that were great to come back to after a day of walking around, and a side porch with a table where you can have breakfast or just sit around later in the day. The rooms are open and airy. The furnishings are mostly antigues, the linens all high quality (feather beds, summer down comforters, nice bedspreads). There are fresh flowers from the gardens in the rooms and bathrooms.

Breakfasts were excellent, either in the dining room or on the side porch. Really good coffee is available throughout the morning, cheese and iced tea/coffee in the late afternoon, cookies in the evening. There are a lot of good restaurants within a short walk.

Donna is a very warm person who wants to help you enjoy what the area has to offer. I would recommend the recently established Botanical Gardens.

Overall, I felt like I was coming to a peaceful, relaxing, tasteful environment put together by someone who genuinely cares about her guests. If you go there, I think you'll have a very good experinence.

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of spending three days at the Atlantic Ark Inn in Boothbay, Maine. We were delighted with the experience. The Inn is located a short walk for several restaurants and shops. It has five rooms in the main house and one detached room, which we enjoyed. We found the rates to be competitive and very reasonable.

Donna, the owner and manager, is a delightful person who goes out of her way to make your visit enjoyable and restful. She has a wealth of information about the local area and places to visit. She is will to share maps and directions.

She also prepares a wonderful breakfast, which is share around the dining room and on the porch.

We highly recommend the Inn to anyone visiting Boothbay.

Donna and her staff made us feel at home the minute we walked int he door. She was very helpful with ideas and suggestiongs on what we should do during our short stay in Boothbay Harbor.
The Atlantic Ark is very close to the harbor and a quick walk to any activity, or restaurant i the area.

We found this Inn to be very clean and comfortable. We could not have asked for more. Breakfast was delightful. Other guests were easy going and a delight to converse with.

We would suggest the Atlantic Ark to anyone considering a stay in Boothbay Harbor.

We had an opportunity to stay at the Atlantic Ark Inn for a couple days in mid July. It is a wonderful B&B...very pretty, only 10 min walk from the shops across the bay. We stayed in room on 2nd floor which had small balcony and separate private entrance. The room was very quiet, the queen bed very comfortable. Our breakfasts were excellent, comprised of both a sweet and savory dish. We had egg strata, fresh fruit, and other goodies. Donna the proprietor is extremely friendly and helpful. Unlike many B&B, you actually have access to kitchen and fridge here, which is nice change from larger B&Bs you may stay at. If you are in Boothbay, I definitely recommend Atlantic Ark as a great place to stay, you will not regret it.
